Wildlife biologists use large arrays of cameras for research and tend to favor Reconyx units for their reliability, durability, and high quality. They are pricey but a lot of the cheaper ones don't last very long.

thumbnail size "SD Card". Flat plastic holds a bunch of memory. They were used in cameras. go to Amazon and look up Bushnell Game camera. I picked "Bushnell Trophy Cam Trail Camera, Brown". its $139.49 today. I'm sure there are better, cheaper, etc. its just what I have and worked ok for me. Scroll down and there are "Frequently bought together" that adds two SD cards to the deal (less than $9 each). Then look up " SD card reader". there are a bunch of them. Less than $20. Either USB connection so you can download to a laptop or get one with a lightning connector to download to a iPhone.

it takes a while to program and use the first couple of times. I'm 65, I had to read the instructions a couple of times! Before he passed my 82 yr old FIL had the hang of it and really enjoyed them.

I now use Spypoint cellular cameras with solar power. they run about $175 each. the monthly plans aren't expensive and you can do long term subscriptions or monthly. You get 100 photos a month free.
if you have cell coverage you get photos sent direct to your phone and or computer.

i like to just see whats on my property. I hunt the same stand every year, all season. not used to check when they arrive, just see whats on property.
and I see if someone who isn't supposed to be there is there!!!

the cellular allows you to see photos without going in and disturbing the area.

amazing the critters you see when you have camera set up. Deer, bears, fox, coyotes, racoons, turkeys, rabbits. and amazing number of bucks that are purely nocturnal!!
i have several real nice bucks on camera that i never see during the season and i hunt pretty much everyday (when I dont fall asleep!)

I took one to Tanzania in 2008; first time my PH had used one there. Amazing how beneficial it was then. I left it behind when I came home. All the guys use them there now.

Trail cams are useful for all sorts of things. That are lockable, so they can be locked to a tree. If someone wants to steal it badly enough they can, with the help of an oxygen-acetylene setup, a chain saw, or a rechargeable side cutter/grinder. But, they can be hidden so well that a crook would almost never see them anyway. I've used them for keeping loggers honest when they report the number of loads they hauled off my place, security around remote sites, even trying to determine what time an armadillo was tearing up my lawn at night. My friend put a thief in prison, with the help of one, who broke into his Mom's house and stole the air conditioner.

Dbh1956, those gopher tortoises are unique creatures. They live in a certain habitat that exists in areas near me, and I have "run into" them occasionally over the years. I once picked a tick off a big tortoise's nose, which it obviously could not get off itself. It was interesting trying to hold that big sucker still with one hand, sitting straddling it's back, while trying to get that tick off without getting bitten. Very interesting creatures that live in a unique habitat with some other rare species. Panthers are "caught" on camera around here too, and not rarely.

Thanks- there's hope for me, I'm 80 and still very active- Just not a "techie" I guess. RWTF

Yes, it all worked out. A camera lets you easily determine if it's a big male or not that you've run across.

Yeah, reminds me of the tale of the treed leopard and the "finishing" with a Model 12-12 ga. in Hemingway's "True At First Light".. RWTF
