    Trail Cameras

    We are about two purchase some cameras two catch some poachers in the farm,
    Probably start with 3-5
    The local cop reckons he will sort the rest if we have some photos
    I had a camera about 3 years ago it was a Leupold and it was average at best, but I'm a bit of a numpty so it was probably set up wrong
    What brands/models do you chaps recommend?
    Any tips?
    Thanks

    I have the Lil Acorn trail cameras.

    Seems to work ok for me.

    Won't be hard to put names to your poachers once you have a Holiday Snap or two.

    There's a couple of well know ones down your way.

    Good luck.

    Cheers
    Pete

    Have you got cell reception, 3 bars or more? Little acorn are ok, I have a few brands now, they are all much the same
    You want black flash or 950mn or more so people cant see the flash at night, happy to chat to you about it you want

    If I wrote a list of all the poachers I know round here your name certainly wouldn't be on it.

    Some of your mates might be though

    Cheers
