(1/3/11) The review for WI’s IR5 was provided by Shaun S. from Pittsfield, MA. Thanks Shaun for the review.
THIS CAM HAS HELPED TREMENDOUSLY THIS YEAR. IT IS SO GREAT TO BE ABLE TO HAVE A CAMERA IN THE WOODS CAPTURING PICTURES OF THE UNKOWN WITHOUT ANY EFFORT FROM US HUNTERS. THE WILD GAME TRAIL CAM WAS AN INEXPENSIVE CAMERA THAT STILL HAD QUALITY OF THE HIGHER PRICED CAMERAS.
I NOTICED WITH THIS CAMERA I WAS GETTING SHOTS OUT TO 40 YARDS AND THAT WAS PRETTY IMPRESSIVE. THE CAMERA TAKES A NICE CRISP PICTURE AND IS PRETTY QUICK TO CAPTURE THE PHOTO. ITS BATTERY LIFE IS GREAT AND THE INFRARED IS AWESOME TO HAVE BECAUSE IT DOES NOT SPOOK ANYTHING. I WOULD GIVE THIS TRAIL CAM A 7 OUT OF 10. ITS GREAT FOR THE LOW INCOME HUNTER, YET STILL HAS FEATURES OF THE HIGHER PRICED TOP END CAMERAS.
PS AND IT HELPED ME BAG MY FIRST BOW BUCK A MONSTER 9 !!!
