Moultrie Feeders Game Cam II Trail Cameras (m-s)

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

Purchase: Trail Cameras (m-s) This unit was purchased at Sports Authority for $99.99 on a Christmas sale. Regular price was around $140. I weighed out buying a digital wildlife camera, but it would have cost more than double. With the limited use I plan on this camera should be more than sufficient to help me research the area I'm exploring and to get a good idea what going on there with regards to big game.

Things I like about the Moultrie Feeders Game Cam II Trail Cameras (m-s): This light weight unit came with the "combo pack" which included a rechargeable 6 volt 5Ah battery and plug in charger. The instructions say to charge the unit for 10 hours. The unit has a hole for the camera shutter and flash, as well as an infrared sensor. It can be set for delay times of either 15 seconds or 6 minutes between pictures. If it's set in a high traffic area for animals use the 6 minute delay so you don't have the whole roll of film shot at one animal. If it's in a remote area where animals are not likely to stand around as much (such as on a trail) then the 15 second mode may shoot groups of animals passing by in a string and give you a good idea of the amount of game crossing. I recommend using 800 speed film for best results.

What I don't like about the Moultrie Feeders Game Cam II: You have to supply your own two size D batteries- and that's fine. I just wish they would have mentioned that on the box so I could have picked up some at the same time at the sporting goods store. I grabbed some the next time I went to the supermarket which was only a minor inconvenience though.

Trail Cameras (m-s) Game Cam II quality: The back of the box comes with built in mounting flanges that can be cabled and locked around a tree, so if you use it in a high traffic area there's no worry for theft. When using it in a hidden venue, then I just use a rubber bungie strap with hooks. The shell is double wall thickness so it seems to be very sturdy and it has a handle for easy carrying. It seems to be good for weather, but just in case, and this is a suggestion for any game camera; I'd mount it on the opposite side of the tree from prevailing winds, to prevent rain or snow from covering the lenses. The camera is auto focus 35mm that seems to be reasonably good quality. I haven't had any problems with it so far. The instructions included are well written and lead you through the set up in a thourough manner, building confidence in the use of the camera.

Game Cam II summary: Basically, I bought this unit to gauge the amount of game in an area that I'm considering hunting in for the first time. This unit can be used by landowners to monitor their property as well and if I had a ranch I'd set this up in different places to keep up to date on what goes on during off hours. It would give me some peace of mind. By their literature that came with this unit and their website: -it's apparent that this company is committed to conservation in hunting and will be around for quite a while.
