Cellular trail Cameras

Looking to get into the wireless game with 3 or 4 cameras. Any recommendations for which ones to get?

Game department uses them.  Seem to work well for them.  Starting to also see more home owners with property use them, to keep hunters from tresspassing.

Battery life depends on the transmission plan you are using.  Probably about a month with a high transmission rate.
Another option is the Spypoint cellular unit that can be used with any camera, I have two, but for some reason I don't have any cameras out this fall at all.

Tactacam reveal x are awesome cams. I have my transmission set at instant and my batteries are on 3+ months. Great signal and transmission, images could be better. Had a spypoint and Iíd say the tactacam is definitely better.

I have three Spypoint Micros.  I get about 3.5 months.  I have them send photos every 2 hours.

Although the moultrie one is working, I would never buy one again. If I decide to try another brand it will be a spy point.

Good info, thanks guys. Iíve got a spot thatís a real miserable hike into but my some stroke of god you pick up lte service around the top of the mountain. Itís also the snakiest looking country Iíve ever been in so Iíve never been able to make myself hike in there in the summer time. Iím thinking a cellular cam hung up in May over a buncha salt would be the ticket. Iíve heard of them with solar panels but never heard any reviews on them.

I bought a Spypoint a couple of years ago.  it works at the house in Auburn but I have yet to find a spot in the woods that it works. Granted the spots I hunt have limited cell service.  But in some of those spots I am able to make a phone call on my phone but have never been able to get the Spypoint to lock in. So based on my limited experience if you don't have 4 bars on your phone your camera is not likely to work.

I have Verizon. 

Others mileage may very :)

It totally depends on the cell reception.   Jake and I put our cameras out about 300yards apart as the the crow flies.  We set them around mothers day weekend I believe.   His batteries were nearly dead after a month or so and mine as of today still have 85% battery life.  I also have 100% cell reception. I believe jake had 40-60 % cell coverage at his camera.
I'm just using normal energizer batteries also.  It's totally dependent on the reception.
