Some recent trail camera pictures from pressured public land in PA. The $45 WGI camera didn't do too bad. No monster bucks by any means, but nice to see deer.

Thanks for sharing the pictures.

I found that the WGI cameras have reeeeeeeaaaallllyyyy slllllllooooooowwww trigger speed...well atleast mine does. If you don't have it on a salt lick, bait, or food plot its hard to get any decent pictures.

What are you using for batteries in the WGI? My would die after 3 days in the cold - I was using just regular batteries.

The trigger speed is slow but on food or minerals they work fine. Another trick I have learned is to place it looking down a trail instead of across it. Seems to help.

As far as battery life, it isn't bad. It was out for a week and it still showed all bars. Believe it or not, they were CVS akaline batteries. My father in law gave them to me so I gave them a shot. My buddy ran a set of Rayovac batteries in a WGI camera for 8 weeks this summer and it showed 2 out of 3 bars when he finally pulled it.

They are definitely not a high end camera but for my use their perfect. I'm just not gonna risk an expensive camera in an area that runs a high risk of being stolen.

I have seen independent tests on these cams and they scored decent on the trigger speed and battery life dept. I have 3 of them, they are all I will purchase because they are such a bargain and the pictures are really pretty decent, I have friends with upper end cams that don't always have better quality. Glad to see there are still some companies around that give you a good product at a great price that gets the job done. I have never needed to use their customer service on a camera, but I did on a used rangefinder I bought and there service was second to none.

I've got one of those Wildview 40 dollar cameras from Menards, it did good

I also got some Hunten cams last year for 30 bucks and they did good too

Not into spending a bunch of money on something I'm going to leave for someone to possibly steal
