I have owned seven trail cameras, three of which are fully operational. Of the other four, one is obsolete, one is in perfect condition but takes horrible images, one was damaged but is still working, and one was destroyed. Click on the link to see images from that camera:
- #1 Bushnell purchased 2009, is obsolete for my purposes. Currently loaned out to my fiance's cousin to track deer, which is what most people use trailcams for.
- #2 Reconyx PC900 was in Wind Cave National Park 2011-2018. Restored by Reconyx to new condition after being damaged in the Legion Lake Fire, December 2017. Now monitoring the back yard at my new house in Montana.
- #3 Moultrie M-880 acquired 2014, destroyed in the Legion Lake Fire, Custer State Park, December 2017.
- #4 Primos Proof Cam 02 HD acquired 2015 and except for night is almost useless. During the daytime, images are blown out and false triggers are constant. No way to set it to capture only at night or adjust the sensitivity so I'm not wasting lithium batteries on it. I use it with rechargeable batteries for short-term tests.
- #5 Browning Strike Force HD Pro acquired 2017. Currently monitoring bluebirds in my back yard.
- #6 Browning Strike Force HD Pro acquired 2017, while in Wind Cave National Park damaged in the Legion Lake Fire, December 2017, but I taped it up and it is working for now. Currently monitoring bluebirds in my back yard.
- #7 Reconyx HyperFire 2 Professional Covert IR just received June 2018. Currently monitoring the field behind my house for deer, fox, and anything else that wanders by (perhaps moose and bear).
