Are you looking for a good Game Trail Camera and don’t know how much to spend, if it’s worth the price, and what qualities to look for? Mwoutdoors is here to help and has done the work for you. Each year we trial several cameras on our property, looking for the best and most cost effective. Things we look for are; high quality pictures/videos, long battery life, moisture penetration issues (imagery quality fails within three years), trigger speed, dawn & dusk picture quality, and field of vision. Here we have listed our top five Game Trail Cameras for 2022.

Qualities we look for

Image Resolution: 10 MP for scouting and 20 MP+ for best imagery

Trigger Speed: The lower the Field of Vision the faster Trigger Speed you will want. We have found cameras with 0.2s to 0.3s offer rapid picture succession and better imaging capturing. However 0.7s to 0.9s is fine for scouting cameras with a wider field of vision.

Long Range: Infrared flash and motion detection, 60ft+.

After Dark Imagery: Night Vision, NoGlow infrared LEDs. Pictures need to be clear even during dusk and dawn transitions

Battery efficiency: We do not like swapping out batteries two or three times a year, so we need good battery efficiency.

Field of Vision: The wider the field of vision the larger area your camera can cover. A larger field of vision will also improve the ratio of sharp and clear pictures to blurry pictures. Here we consider cost and terrain (woods & fields).
