Got one on black Friday and thinking about another. These cameras are the best in their price range.

I picked mine up yesterday in the Denton store. Price said $139.99 so I asked a guy that worked there and he said we will price match an online deal, but he said lets check the price on it, so we did and it came up $99.99. He said they must haven't put the sticker out yet, you must have beat them. So if it says $139.99 check it first.

I have had really good luck with my br browning cameras. I just got the new one and it's even smaller than the older models. I love it!

Received mine yesterday. Browning is hands down the best. The one I have running now is on the same batteries I started with in October

Question:
Do you have to use the lithium batteries to get the long battery life, or just regular AA?

You really should use the lithiums. Sure, they cost more up front. But what's the cost of having no pics when the trail cam doesn't get pics bc it had alkalines?

I buy cheap AA's and still get plenty of time on mine. 2 months if I had to guess. But I check mine weekly


I can buy 50-60 AA's for price of 12 AA lithiums lol

We use alkalines in all of ours and get about 9-10months of battery life out of them. It all depends on how often they are checked. Ours donít go more than a month without checking and we run ours year round.

Thanks for the heads up. Might have to pick up one or two if they are as good as y'all say. The Moultrie and Stealthcams I've been running haven't been too consistent.

9-10 months on 8AA's? I find this very hard to believe unless your using Lithiums and running them on long delays

Well you can believe what you want. We run 2 shot with a 1min delay. We will get 1500 pics a week or so on some cameras.
