Could you guys recommend a good trail camera for setting over trap sets? The one I was using has a red infrared glow and it's scares the crap out of canines. I would like to set one over a few coyote sets to see how they work the set and possibly get a catch on video. Thanks guys

I had an IR stealth cam ( before it got stolen :evil: ) and got pics of coyotes and foxes on it. My friend has an IR wildgame innovations and got good coyote pics on it.

Did they ever spook when it took video?

I never set mine to take video, so I can't swear they would stick around long enough for a video.

Even when I have mine set on picture mode they take one look and get the heck outta dodge. It emits a red glow. Makes me wonder how guys are shooting yotes with those red predator hunting lights.

There's no doubt they can see those red lights, maybe it doesn't spook them as bad as white light. ?? Infrared is different though. I don't think they can see the infrared , but they can definitely see the red glow from the illuminator.

I have a Moultrie 501. It is infra red. The one thing about infra red is, it does not give away the location as a flash does. If your concerned about thieves stealing you camera the last thing you want is a bright flash of light. My camera is old now and on the bulky side compared to what they are putting out. The camera will still work at -15F.
