Game cameras?

So I've got this nice house and was thinking about a game camera in the back yard to see if the bunnies really have abandoned us, and such other critters.

Game cameras come in such a HUGE variety of stuff - I want something easy to use, tolerably cheap and without too many bells and whistles - I don't need internet, wireless or stuff, just want it to snap photos - night IR is needed.

Anyone got any experience to share?

I have a dozen Primos Truth Cam 35's around the ranch and they do a very good job at night. I mainly use them when I suspect trespassers near the cattle, but they catch a lot of deer, hogs and coyotes around the property, too.

Very cheap (~$70), so if one gets damaged or stolen, it's no big loss.

I'd look at Covert cams. The black 60 is a great all around cam.

I am new to game cameras and recently purchased my first one. I bought a covert MP6 on sale for $100. So far I have been very happy with it, takes great photos and has many options. I will purchase a few more when on sale.

I have had 3 busnell trophy cams and they have worked fine.
Long battery life as well and IR.
