Best Trail Cameras

Trail cams have become a valuable scouting tool for the modern hunter allowing you to learn and anticipate when and where your prey will be and what types of bait are best for attracting the animals you are interested in. Trail cameras have also gained popularity for photography enthusiasts and other non-hunters. Aside from keeping tabs on prey, a trail camera can be used for monitoring a property, watching out for trespassers (both human and animal), or simply for capturing photos of animals that you may not have a chance to otherwise.

There are so many different cams on the market today that it can be hard to weed through the features and requirements to find the best trail cams for your needs and your pocketbook. What is the right combination of trigger speed, photo quality and resolution, detection circuit capabilities, flash, battery life, etc. for you?
