I have a new trailcam. The Wildgame pooched out on me.
I've been experimenting.
I have a Bushnell. It's pretty good. I have picked up bats, and flying squirrels.

The Moultrie surprises me sometimes.

These won't pick up birds, for example, and even Butch & Sundance raccoon seem to avoid it. The new one, Wildgame, has a time delay of 15 seconds. The Moultrie, was 5 seconds.
You can see the lights, and the Wildgame requires 12 AA batteries. It's infrared, and doesn't have all that much power at night. Of course, it was developed by hunters, to see what they could be tracking.
This is the latest one I have (Moultrie, left). The videos have a clicking sound.
My old one crapped out. The Moultrie seemed to have much better night shots. I'll just have to see! I returned it to Crappy Tire, and the only one they had in stock with which I could replace it, was the Wildgame.
What I have learned about setting up a trailcam
I am looking for some objective opinions, though. Maybe this is all in my mind!
Here are the coyotes on the Moultrie.

I can't tell if we had 3 or 4 coyotes at 3:00 a.m.!
Wildgame Innovations: Butch and Sundance and the Hole in the Wall Gang. The sound is awful.

Great evening munchies of Butch & Sundance. I think there are three of them!
