Moultrie sucks

I like Browning.

But you can buy some cheap Chinese cameras on Amazon that work pretty good.

Do not get Moultrie-I like Spypoint-I have a dark-link-very easy to use good settings. If you are going cellular-be sure to check with coverage areas of AT&T and Verison-big difference for me.

I just want to be able to see the critters that are digging up my yard at night.

Here is a IR photo it took a few weeks ago.  I have it mounted too close to the ground and the flash doesn't work that great.  It would make better night photos mounted a couple of feet higher.

Ours too, but these holes are much bigger than the armadillo holes.

The camera takes the micro sd card.  32G size works for us.  Make sure and format the card while it is installed in the trail cam.  There is a menu selection for that.  I think it uses 8 AA batteries.

Bob, have you tried that camera yet.  I tried to order another one today and they have gone up $10 to $52.  We have a fox moma and pups living under my next door neighbor's out building and I wanted to gets some photos of them.

Dang.  I ordered that game cam to take photos of the fox family nextdoor...........but they moved out last night and are long gone.  There were 5 cubs and they had grown to be almost as large as their mother.
