My son works at Wal-Mart here in WV and they are selling like hot cakes. He has informed me that not a one has been returned and he showed me some pictures a guy had printed out and they are nice pictures. Right now I am building a bear box for one of my son's co-workers for his Wildgame Innovations camera. Also, my son's best friend has the infrared model of this camera and he loves it.

At $50.00 that isn't bad, especially if you have to worry about theft. Your only out $50 instead of $250 to $600 on a game camera.

Right now our local Wal-Mart is sold out. If they get anymore in I may just purchase one for myself. Right now I have a Moultrie and a Stealth digital camera.

A local sporting goods store here locally has the Wildgame Innovations infrared model (no flash) for $89.00. Now that is a buy and with infrared you don't have to worry about someone spotting your camera at night. The flash models tend to attract attention due to the flash going off at dark. Someone looking to still something would immediately know there was a camera in the woods. One more reason for the bear boxes...I weld them up and bolt them to a tree, then run a chain through the box and around the tree.

So for $50 I would say go get one. Just remember, these are tools and don't expect magazine quality photos but they are nice digital photos and you will be able to tell what is in your area.

My wife bought me the 2 pack of these trail cams and I had to take them back. Come to find out they had a good recall on them. I put both cameras out and wasnt getting any pictures. Even testing the cameras, I could not get them to take a good picture. Everything was blurry. We went and bought a Moultree and I have no complaints with it. Battery life is awesome and the pictures are very clear. Bought it for less than $100 at our local Bass Pro when they had them on sale.

I bought 2 walmart cameras one was a 35mm cam and the other a cheap digital. Both work ok, i still have the 35mm but i am more fond of the digital. It just takes better pictures, and seems more reliable. Check out illinois deer cam picts in the braggin board forum, those came from my digital. I accidently posted in the wrong section.

The Wildgame Innovations digitals cams that Wal-Mart was selling last year and at the first of the year did have issues and there was a recall on them. The ones they started selling this fall work fine. A friend of mine got one and I helped him put it out. I built him a steel box to help protect both from bears and thieves (which I dispise but that is another story to tell).

His camera has worked pretty much flawlessly. He did have some night time pictures that were black and I do believe it was because the batteries were getting to low to charge up the flash after the first flash picture was taken. But the quality of the pictures and batter life seems pretty good.

I am a Moultrie guy myself, but for $50 I would buy a Wildgame Innovations camera, heck they even have the infrared model, but I don't think Wal-Mart carries it (they may online). Another friend of mine bought one at a local sporting goods store for $89, not bad for an infrared model.
