    Figured this is the best place to ask.....My husband and I both have an interest in seeing what creatures hang out in the empty field by our house at night....What is a good game cam that I can get for $100 or less?

    I bought a spypoint. It was a little over $100.00 but does a good job. Caught this critter going up the side of my coop.

    Don't get the Moultrie D55-IR. It's a piece of junk. The time lapse between when it detects motion and when it actually takes the pic is WAY too long. Usually it does not even capture the photo at all. I had a 50 pound bag of corn totally disappear right in front of the camera. It captured 2 squirrels and one crow. That's it. A total of 3 animals did NOT eat 50 pounds of corn. The gamecam went back to Walmart yesterday.

    Thanks for the advice! I just ordered a "WILDGAME INNOVATIONS N6WC MICRO DIGITAL GAME SCOUTING HUNTING CAMERA 6MP 6.0" for a total of $80 (with shipping) off of Amazon. I hope to get a chance to post some pictures after Christmas sometime!

    Let us know how you like it. We lost our first duck to a predator recently and are looking into a game camera to see what roams the area at night.

    I second the Wildgame Innovations models. I had the cheapest camera, I think a 2 mega pixel, and it worked great, even after being under 2 foot of water for a few months. I will always buy WI for my game camera.
