Moultrie Game Cam Trail Cameras (m-s)

Trail Cameras (m-s) Manufacturer: Moultrie
Moultrie Model: Game Cam
Review Category: Trail Cameras (m-s)

Purchase: Trail Cameras (m-s) I purchased this camera at Wal-Mart for roughly $120. I got it to monitor movement of deer and turkey coming to and going from a green field.

Things I like about the Moultrie Game Cam Trail Cameras (m-s): It is less expensive than than most other models.

What I don't like about the Moultrie Game Cam: The short version: It's a piece of junk. Moultrie should stick to what they do well; game feeders. I doubt that they actually manufacture these things and only lend their name to it. I ended up throwing the thing away after a couple of months. The longer version: I should've known as soon as I opened the box and there were no instructions. A web search located instructions for other Moultrie products but not for this particular model. Eventually, I did find some instructions elsewhere. The camera could be made to be much simpler to operate. Many settings have to be made by using a pointed object to press a button. All too often the button doesn't return properly, causing a plethora of problems. Out of seven rolls of film used, here's the rundown: Three rolls were completely blank. Nada. Nothing. Zip. A lovely shade of solid black. Two were fine, but mostly "ghost" pictures. The last two had red streaks over the left and right edges and were extremely grainy. I figured this was a result of the camera allowing light in.

Trail Cameras (m-s) Game Cam quality: After the seventh roll, the unit was in such bad shape I threw it away. This model is nowhere close to protected from the elements. The lens sticks through an open hole. Within two weeks, the casing had warped so much rain could pour in through the top. To give some indication of how poorly sealed it is, at one point, I had to remove a small wasp nest from inside! By the seventh roll, internal wiring and battery hook-ups were seriously corroded, and the gap in the top was large enough to stick a pencil in. If anybody wants it, it's probably at the bottom of a landfill in Louisville, Mississippi

Game Cam summary: Better results could be had by buying a disposable camera, hiding in the bushes, and waiting.
