Wanting to buy new trail cam

I've always been a homebrewer but with my Parkinson's disease that is no long possible. Instead I am looking to buy one of the cams that is on the market now. I plan on being at Bass Pro Thursday and that would be a good time to pick one up. They have their Bushnell Trophy Cams Essentials 3 on sale for $119. However I saw Anthony's review that there is a problem with whiteouts. However the 2016 model Essentials 2 seems to have a solid track record. I know good cams come with spending money but I live on a budget. Was hoping somebody here could point me in a good direction on some cams. I'd like to spend $125 or less if possible. If there is something much better but not too much over my $125 amount, please let me know. By the way I have not had time to review all of the camera reviews yet, so pardon me for that. Bob

I have the E2 and really like the camera. If I were you I'd look on Amazon or eBay. I found an E2 for $80 shipped new and I'd also look at the Bushnell Aggressor low glow 20mp around $120.

With me having the E2 I'm looking at getting the Aggressor if I can't find the right price I'd get the E2.

Good luck.

Good to be seen again. I came close to offing myself. Finally got my head back on straight. Making and using cams were so important to me before. Hoping I can get that old rush going again.

Bob, not sure if you have bought anything yet but Amazon has the Bushnell E3 for $99. The Browning Strikeforce is a great camera as well but I feel the Bushnell camera is easier to set up and does a better job all the way around. The important thing to remember is they all work and they all have problems. :wink:

The Primos Proof GEN 2 cameras are a really good bang for your buck. The GEN 2 is a big improvement over the previous year. I haven't had any issues with the GEN 2 model (proof 2) and the picture quality is great.
