Wildgame Innovations trail cameras ARE NOT our first choice.

The 2014 Wildgame Innovations trail camera reviews found nothing to write home about. With all the choices we might suggest looking at a camera from Covert, Moultrie or Bushnell. Price is about the only positive thing we can say about these trail cams.

Wildgame Innovations Trail Cameras are marketed by an interesting company. The Busbice family has a flare for the dramatic. The company started in around 2002 by produced deer attracting feed and minerals.

Eventually Wildgame Innovations started purchasing other brands. This was their way of leveraging the Wildgame name and recognition. Just because they make a good deer attractant doesn’t mean they can “make” a good trail camera.

Nothing is Standard

The first thing I noticed with the Wildgame cameras is the lack of standardization. All the cases are much different from model to model. The latches are different. The sizes are different. The camos are different.

Not Very User Friendly

The menu operation and settings are not very user friendly. My dad is my hunting partner and runs all the cameras because he is retired. The Wildgame is the only game camera is has trouble operating.

What About Picture Quality?

Picture quality on the models we tested were average. Nothing special about these pictures. In fact, any movement in the nighttime images created lots of blurring.

Are Wildgame Innovations Trail Cameras Good?

wildgame innovations trail cameras are not know for reliability. I have searched and searched through dozens of Wildgame Innovations trail camera reviews and failed to find any model that consistantly scored higher than 50% in any category.

Price is really the only reason to choose this brand. If money is really tight you can give them a try. But BEWARE, these game cameras can go through batteries and the life tends to be much shorter than competitors.

wildgame innovations trail camera reviewsThe Wildgame site currently list 18 different models for sale. These 18 cams range in price from $69 to $199 with many being the same price. This is another red flag for me. I mean seriously, how many different options, features, models do we really need. In contrast, Covert and Moultrie and Bushnell do not have 18 if you combine all three companies.  Read the DeerPros.com trail camera reviews to see our recommendations for better game cams.

    I hate to agree but I have had bad luck with WGI trail cameras.

    They are cheap and you can buy them at Wal-Mart, Dicks Sporting Goods…etc

    But you get what you pay for.

    the red 4 or red 6 was pretty good. so I bought a few more. that was a mistake. occasionally one will last but most have been lemons. I switched to Bushnell Trophy Cams

    Tried them 2 years in a row. Had purchased 5. Not a one them last an entire season. Took 20-30 good pics then batteries went dead. Best thing they did was making a good target for 17 hmr. A jeenry rigged Polaroid would do a better job.

  4. I bought a trail cam from WGI. I have not had luck with picture quality. Then on top of that I go to set my two cameras out this year. Just bought them a year and month ago. They wouldn’t turn on. I got new batteries still nothing. Called customer service and they said i can only return if its under a year and if i had proof of purchase. I will never buy from them again. Along with alot if friends. Spend your money wisely. Thanks

    I’M USING WILDGAME INNOVATIONS, ALSO USING MOULTRIE AND PRIMOS. YOU GET LEMONS WITH ALL OF THEM, ONCE IN A WHILE. FOR A NO FRILLS CAMERA, IT’S SMALL, 1 SECOND TRIGGER SPEED, GREAT BATTERY LIFE, GREAT IMAGES AND PRICED FAIR… WILDGAME INNOVATIONS IS A FINE CAMERA IN MY BOOK.

    I don’t really know what to think. I have one Blade 4X that I paid $39 for on clearance and its still working fine a year later. Another quit after a year. Last month I bought another on sale, it quit after a month. At least I’d filled out the warranty card (they require it to be returned w/in 14 days but must be flexible because they could not find mine and let me send in proof. Just bought another at Academy yesterday (on sale $49) and so we’ll see. It seems like a dice roll, but if I can get a year’s use I’ll be OK. It does cost $10 shipping to get it back to the seller for a replacement, so factor that in. I’ve had trouble with the higher priced Bushnell’s too.My ratings aren’t of the one I just bought, but of the brand in general. I did test the camera and at least it works out of the box.

    I bought 4 WGI Blade 5x cams before last season. The controls are not really user friendly, but once I has them set up they worked great. The only issue I had with any of the 4 is that one got stolen. Range isn’t great, but my green spots are small, so that isn’t an issue for me.

    Bought 3 WGI Blade 6x this year, because I misplaced the 5’s. I would buy again.

    I have problems with short battery life. I’m going to reduce my flextime setting and try again. One package said the batteries will last a year and I get a week if I’m lucky. I have 6 of the cameras because I like the feature to take a picture every minute.

    Also, why don’t the produce time lapse movies that fit a standard like AVI or MOV. Having a proprietary movie format (FLX) makes it very difficult to share the movies.
