I recently bought the cuddelink system this year. I pay $10 for approx 700-800 pictures to be sent per month. If I go over 800 it is $5 for additional 1000 I only have two cams now. Works pretty good so far. Cell phone cam has been out since april and is still on the original batteries. The linked cam I put out recently with lithiums. I like the pictures so far. I have it set to send pics when it gets 5 between the cameras. No poachers yet.

This is the one I am thinking about cause you can run up to 16 cameras on the same plan. Good to know if you go over 800 pictures it's $5 more per 1000 pictures. I'm still thinking about getting one to start.

I am starting small and thinking of expanding. Cabelas had a return deal the other day. Bring in a old cam and they gave you $$ for a new one. I got $50 bucks off one of the link cameras

So how are you liking them over all, trigger speed and quality of the pictures? Do you have them over bait? Also do they make lock boxes for them too?

Hopefully you dont have to deal with Cuddeback tech support. It was horrible a few years back. I had several of their Attack cams and all of them were junk. Lots of wasted time and money. 

When your deaing with technology, the tech support should be one of the deciding factors when choosing a cell camera not how cheap the camera or the plan is. 

The whole concept of a cell cam is being able to monitor an area for extended periods of time with out disturbing the area. 

Running one on bait will consume more batteries and more pics. 

You are still disturbing the area when hauling corn in and out. 

If you are the type that hunts the same stands over and over hauling bait in and out, a cell cam will probably not help your hunting. 

If you are the type of hunter after a particular animal, trying to pattern or locate movement, the cell cam is probably your most important scouting tool right next to a good pair of binos

I just have a hard time leaving a few hundred bucks strapped to a tree for some ass come along and steal. Like to keep it as cheap as possible. You know Jersey, nothing is safe. I know guys that have had cameras stolen by guys that took a chainsaw and cut the tree off if locked to it.

So I thought I'd kick off a topic amidst the recent poaching incident captured on a cell cam, and ask members their current take for 2019 on cell cams they have a strong recommendation on based on research or direct experience (could be prior year cams).

A few things to post/consider:

  1. What do you like about the cam?
  2. What do you dislike about the cam?
  3. What's your average cost per month and respective number pictures it covers?

What poaching incident caught on cell cam?  I musta missed that one.  Can you post a link please?

I've used Cuddebacks in some form or another since 2008. The Attacks are by far the worst Cuddebacks ever.

I have Three, two bushnell and a spartan , I like to place one in the driveway, it lets me know when Brenda comes home and gives me enough time to turn off the porn.

I like them. Good picture. Pretty much center of view. Get some flash bleed close to the camera. No major complaints so far. Not running them over bait for now. Trying to limit how many pictures I use now. Maybe once big daddy shows his face
