I went this route when I bought my first trail-cam. I would suggest spending at least $150. I bought one of those Stealth-cams for $99 and it was junk. I too, am currently looking for a trail-cam but this time I think I'm going with the Prowler Or the IR-550 (Stealth-cam).
Cabela's has a pretty good cam made by Moultrie for around 100 bucks. You will need a card with any of them and that will run you 20-50 bucks. A good place to shop is Ebay also. Remember to set the cam so the sun does not hit the lens early am or late pm or it will ruin your pics. Set the cam about 15 ft from a mineral lick or pile of apples and you will get plenty of pics. Also set the camera to space the shots about 10 min apart. One old doe can take a lot of shots in a few minutes if you don't.
I would probably go with a Stealth-Cam they are nice cameras that arent that expensive and they take good pics.
when looking for a card for your trail cam, try this site...http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategory=68&name=Flash-Memory
In the left-hand column, about 1/3 of the way down the page, you can specify what type memory you are looking for. They sometimes have good deals.
Wally world but Moultrie on sale a few years ago for 89 dollars. They sold out in about 2-3 days everytime they got an order. I have one and like it but I would like one with an IR flash. It didn't bother the deer much but I think I would have gotten more pictures with an IR flash and more range
To follow up Midway USA has a Moultrie 4 MP on sale right now for 69.99. I think this is the same one I got for 89 a Wal Mart..
Thanks for the answers. I didn't even ask the ?, but I'm thinkin' about a trailcam, and "real" hunter word of mouth is worth much more to me than clever advertising.
Agreed with Del in KS answer above and A + 1 for you sir!!!
