Read the instructions that come with the camera. Found out the hard way that mine will only take one brand and of that brand, only one kind, Lithium. Didn't think it would matter but it does!

I run Browningís and just use regular ole AA batteries. They last about 6 months taking anywhere from 100-1500 pics a week. I keep my timer on 30sec and alter that depending on what they are watching. Like others on here mine stay out most of the year.
Hereís a few pics from this year already.

I set one out in April/May when it starts to get green, looking over my mineral site. I pull it in September and put it and 4 others at my 5 deer stand locations that same day. They will stay there until mid February and I pull all of them , take out the batteries and replace with new. Clean them up if needed and repeat the process. The mineral site let's me see what's there and watch the antler growth and leaving them in a month or two after season lets me see the bucks that made it through gun season.

Where can I get info on game/trail cameras? I have a couple old ones, but am wanting to get some more. Would like a recommendation.

I want one that I can set up to send me pictures/video (wireless) when I have a wireless plan, but can also use an SD card without needing to be wireless.

I use Spartan cameras through ATT. A little pricey, but they do the trick. I can control the entire camera through an app on my phone. Regular batteries donít last long though when you use all the functions itís capable of. Itís best when used on a trail and not over a feeder. Of course I could change some settings to get better battery life, but I like near instant pics. Killed many hogs on bait by showing up ad stalking in during the dark.
Hereís a few recent pics of some deer.
