    Does the Recon FHD have a battery cartridge? I'm thinking they are the source of my camera problems.

    yes but I've never had an issue with any of the 5 cams I have due to battery cartridges. What model do you have?

    I have the Dark Ops HD. I love the camera, but on two of them the battery cartridge seems to be intermittent.

    Another vote for browning, no issue with my moultrie but the browning is much better and the pictures are incredible.

    Well, I bought a Browning Dark Ops HD to replace the old one. Sure enough, when I went into the woods Saturday, the suspect camera was dead. I have been unable to revive it.

    Also decided to try some cheap Walmart cameras. Bought a $28 Tasco and a $68 WGI camera. After getting them home, I can see why they're so cheap, but if they work well enough, they could do for the low-traffic areas.

    Also, when checking my old Moultrie, I found that something had torn it off the tree. Completely tore through the nylon straps. Camera was on the ground, and it was still working.

    I must say I'm rather impressed with the durability. Took the strap from the broken Browning and put the Moultrie back up.

    Unfortunately, owing to the mechanical distress, the camera only caught a single blurred frame of the assailant. So, like all Bigfoot pictures, this one is useless for positive ID. So you must be right.

    Luckily I was able to restore the picture Igloo sent me and here is the result.
