    What's everyone running now? I know for some time this forum was a covert stronghold. I'm still running coverts but picked up a couple more farms and need to add a few cameras. My coverts have served me well. Not interested in cell cams just plain old sd cards suite me fine.

    I still run a few coverts. Need to trade in my old ones for new ones. But I got a couple spypoints and are trying them out. So far I like them ok. Not as good as coverts but cheaper

    I've tried a little of everything. Mostly look for sales but mixed results. Bottom line, I have about 35 cameras in a tub and have had good and bad luck with all. The biggest problem I've had is with white-out pics. Could be from bad positioning.
    I just bought some spypoints but too early to give a review. I'll put them out next month. Going to have to find good places with cell service.

    I still run mostly all coverts. Bought a couple cheap wild game last year. 1 of 3 of them already not working. Got one stealth that’s not reliable. Run a couple of old Bushnell trophy cams that still are going maybe 10yrs now. Still having great luck with covert.

    Browning for me. Just keep up with your proof of purchase. Their customer service is very strict on that when it comes to any repairs or replacement

    My runners up are bushnell trophy 20 and higher end wildgame

    I've seen some Covert Mavericks on sale for like $90. For that, you won't beat them. I like those mavericks. The ice cams are great too. I'm running a Reconyx, Browning, and several coverts. I'll take the Coverts.

    I would’ve traded in my non functioning coverts for new ones, but I wanted to try the spypoint link micros. If I had taken the batteries out when I stored them I’d still have my coverts. Acid ate them up. Don’t use cheap batteries and take them out when ya store them. Don’t know why I left three of them with battery and cards in them.

    The coverts black 60 is the best all around camera I've owned. The worst was stealth cam. I got a couple spypoint that's somewhere in the middle, but less $ also.

    Black 60's were great cameras. I preferred the red 40's for night pictures. Both were tanks and got thousands upon thousands of pictures on one set of batteries.
