My Father Is A Great Man And Knows Alot about a Little Bite of Everything.... But, When it Comes to Electronic Gagets.. He is Still In 1955.... He Does Not Own A Computer. Does Not Want Anything To Do With A Computer... He Has a Hard Time Operating a Cell Phone.... But, He is Know Intrested in Getting a Trail Camera to Put on His Food Plot; he Planted.. After seeing a Co-Workers Pictures And Video Off of his...We are suppose to go shopping for one Next Sunday July 8.... Does Anyone Have Any Suggestions???????? This Trail Camera Has to Be Extremely Easy to Use.. With some good Quality Too It.... And Sense He has Nothing to view the SD Card on. Maybe a nice moniter on the Trail camera to View the Pic.s or Video On.....

I would Say $150.00 Max... Less is always Better...... And I Know With what I am asking for it's Probably not going to be Easy.....

If you pony up a few more bucks you can get a Bushnell Trophy Cam. They're pretty good for the money.

I've been using Moultrie D-55's for about 4 years now. We have 4 of them, and all 4 have performed flawlessly the entire time. They do good on batteries, and take a good picture. They are a little slow, but if you are just putting the cam over a plot, speed really doesnt matter. The D-55 can be had for about $90-100, if you catch them on sale.. I believe Moultrie has a slightly more expensive cam that includes the photo viewer.

You can save some coin if you opt for the flash camera vs the infrared.. It's been my expereince that game really doesn't care about the flash, as I've had the same bucks come back to the site month after month... Last year, we killed a buck that we had probably over 50 pictures of, shot him from about 200 yards away from the camera site.

primos have been wonderful cameras. I run 8 of them on our farm for 3 years and they performed great!! The biggest advantage to me is battery usage (minimal).
