That's really cool Dallas. I may get one one day. I have a moultrie 6.0 right now and it does very well. I tried two other brands that gave me fits. They were mainly not waterproof.

Thats cool except for the price. Not only do they get you with the purchase but also the wireles package and the amount of photos it sends. Call me onld fashion but Ill go out for a walk first.

that's what i need out back.  i could see what sets off the dogs at 4 am and what is raiding my grain in the barn.  i suspect raccoons, since stuff is missing.....it would be cheaper to sleep in the barn for a couple of nights  :-)
.....The greatest changes occur in their country without their cooperation. They are not even aware of precisely what has taken place. They suspect it; they have heard of the event by chance. More than that, they are unconcerned with the fortunes of their village, the safety of their streets, the fate of their church and its vestry. They think that such things have nothing to do with them, that they belong to a powerful stranger called “the government.” They enjoy these goods as tenants, without a sense of ownership, and never give a thought to how they might be improved.....

How can you put a price tag on the peace of mind it will give you?  8-)

Here are a few pictures from hubby's Moultrie Gamespy D40 trail camera he set up outside our Maine house over the weekend.  We put out cut up apples for the little darlings  :)  I have to say we're pretty pleased at how well this camera works, it only cost $79.00 at Bass Pro Shop (loss leader, I'm sure). 

It takes three pictures in a burst, obviously the deer were coming in fast, these were all taken at 2:06 this morning.

For some reason about an hour and a half after those pictures were taken another bunch of deer came by and the camera didn't take any pictures. I'm thinking the batteries being over a month old might have been weak.

Aw, a baby!  Not around here yet, another month or so.  We brought the camera home to check it for pictures, and to change out the batteries, I guess.  I hope we can get some pictures during the day, too, when we set it up again!

Ann, that picture I believe was taken in September. Your deer are very large and healthy looking, good winter reserves on them. It snowed at our property this Saturday and I didn't have the camera out! I could just kick myself! :'(

VERY NICE !! You camera even tells what the temperature was, pretty nifty. I thought about getting a higher end camera because of all the options but was scared away by the price. When I used to rototill our gardens in Maine we used to see moose and monster buck tracks in them soon after. I'm sure we'll get some better pictures down the road.

Woodchopper my moultrie 6.0 is the best one I have used so far. I went through 4 different cuddebacks and one re-conix, that were not waterproof. Veryy happy with the moultrie and it was like $200.00 cheaper than the other two! Can't beat moultries for price and performance. Yeah and its neat to see all the particulars like moonphase, time, etc...

Here's another from my moultrie:

Ann and JP, some most incredible shots of the deer.  Wow!!!!  They are such pretty little things eh?

So Ann, Woodchopper is your new and improved eh?  How on earth did you ever get him interested in the bee forum, (hee, hee, smiling).  Cool.  Have a wonderful and greatest of days, Cindi

Oh, he's been around, but he hangs out on a metal detecting forum more, and both of us are on a local gun forum.  I spend quite a bit of time here on Beemaster and tell him to look at this or read that, I'm his information collector  :lol: 

Actually Greg is the one who wanted to become a beekeeper, something I'd always wanted to do but didn't have anyone to do it with.  His uncle was a founding member of a local bee club and he used to help his uncle work the bees when he was younger.  Yes, he is definitely my new and improved!  :-*

Ann, we are lucky women to have found these "new and improved" dudes.  We have talked about this before, (ooops, off topic, my true apology)  :-X ;) :)  Have a wonderful, beautiful day, Cindi

Hey Cindi, Ann, just thought I'd chime in here cause this you will find kinda amusing. Well, ya'll talk about new and improved hubbies, my wife really did get a new and improved hubby! Her first husband and myself have the same first name! Can you believe that? Marrying two different guys with the same first name! :-D  I of course always remind her that she is now with the new and improved version! ;) Have a great day.

That's awesome, JP, and actually easier for her, too.  My first husband's name was Fred.  I married a Greg.  Just change two consonants - after 26 years of saying one, it was very hard to not slip every once in awhile - the poor guy!  But he's been understanding about it, and it hasn't happened more than two or three times, but each time I feel like such a jerk!  :roll:
