I was just looking at buying a trail cam but got lost with the amount of choice, any recommendations would be appreciated, only looking to spend £50 to £60 and it would be for tracking red deer routes  so good night picture quality. Who knows what else is out on the Moor. Cheers guys.

I have a couple of these and they seem very good for the money also have the black led,s that make them invisible to the human eye if your setting them near footpath,s or on public land, most cameras cheap or expensive seem to start playing up after a couple of years plus the market is getting flooded which makes the cameras cheaper while the quality seems to get better,

Just been out and swapped some SD cards over, this website does not allow video to be uploaded and all my cams are set on video so I have to play the video on an old laptop and take stills of the screen on my iPad to upload hence I loose a lot of quality from the original, so please ignore the quality as the originals are very much clearer, but here are just a few pics to highlight the importance of finding a good nature corridor and everything will use it, CA573D6D-6B43-4BD4-9473-968AD56B1428.jpeg.6689c0016d6958251e4bd0e2ee675ac3.jpeg

Any of you lads recommend best one that emails a pic? We have had a couple, one that took good pics but constantly sent blank pics all day, we got a new one supposed to be the dogs (little acorn or summat) but picture seems to be shite.

Think false triggers are par for the course with all trail cams just done three cameras that have been up since the end of November, over a 1000 triggers loads of blanks, tips of tails and ears or just leaves fluttering in the wind i,d say it works out about 1 in 3 triggers capture an image 👍

Trying to work that out myself caught him several times over a month and the marks always there, he has a bald patch on each arse cheek but it’s were his head reaches when he turns and chews so was wondering if he has a lot of ticks and has been using his hind hoof to scratch his side as he does,nt look malnourished
