Wildlife enthusiast, check in if you know how to set up a cam to capture nocturnal wildlife.
Someone on DU suggested a system that was about $200, but could pick it up for half that. Unfortunately, I can't find the thread. My wishlist in features includes the following:

wireless
sensor activated
about 50 to 75 foot range.
I don't expect perfect pictures, just enough to identify the animal.
Preferably there's a stealth feature. I don't want something flashing to scare the animal away.

If you're using a system, feel free to describe the system and tell us what you like about it, or dislike.

Mods, if you can find a better place for this thread, please feel free to move.

1. You might try the outdoor sports group.
I have a trail cam that's pretty low end but I've gotten good pictures of bears and wolves with it. I'm pretty lazy with it and could probably do a lot better if I put some more effort into placement and baiting.
