Recently decided to replace my Bushnell trail camera with an updated model that is powered by a single 9 volt battery compared to the Bushnell which uses a slew of AA batteries, which are a pain to install/replace. What brand and model trail cameras have you fellas found good and reliable?
Also looking for a good night vision scope to help a farmer friend eliminate some of the resident coyote population, some of which devoured a nice buck that he killed with a bow and the coyotes got to before he did. Would an illuminated reticle in the scope and an independent high powered red light be a good alternative?
Thanks in advance for suggestions, and Happy Thanksgiving.. Rol

Hoping some will respond as I am in the market for a trail camera and do not know anything about them. Hoping for a discussion about them. Al

I’ve got a couple of Browning trail cameras and they have held up well out here in the rain forest weather in NW Oregon. But on the down side they do take a bunch of AA batteries. Picture quality isn’t the best but price is reasonable. Image

Rol,
I use Cuddeback cameras. The cameras are 20mp and use 8 AA lithium batteries providing battery life for 6-8 months. I also have several cuddelink cameras that email pictures to me. Those cameras use 12 AA lithium batteries and camera/ battery life is 3-4 months.
As for night time coyote hunting, look at the ATN Thor 4 thermal scope. They are expensive but the performance is very good.
