Who had a cam stolen this year?
« on: October 27, 2017, 12:51:19 PM »
Had a camera stolen in an area in the 356 where I've never seen another person. Hopefully the muzzleloader hunter likes my bushnell camera. I've pulled all but one camera for the modern season and will be putting them back out after the season to catch the elk migration. Hopefully my stealth cam doesn't get found.

Who else had one taken this year?

I had one of my Browning cams stolen a week or so ago. Still kinda hard to believe someone found it since I haven't seen anyone in this area. Checked my other cams in the area and got a couple different people on cam.

 :hello: yup. Had mine locked up and had a 1/2" cable through it also. They ended up breaking the camera apart (pieces were left behind) and left the cable still around the tree.

Last year had a couple stolen, even with cable locks through them. They break the plastic mold on the back of the camera. I've started packing a couple of screw-in tree stand steps, and pick a tree without branches or knots on the bottom few feet so that they can't reach the camera. I figure if the person is enough of a @sshole, they'll still shoot the camera, but at least it makes it a bit harder to just steal and gets it out of the immediate line of sight of people.

Wow with all the stuff stolen you would think some company could come up with a small economical tracking device that gives real time locations.

Sorry nothing stolen ,no thread jack intended. :peep:

Fact is that Bears are for some reason very attracted to trail cams, and a good number of cams are stolen by bears. look around the cams may just be close by.
That's my one shot.

I made heavy duty lock boxes and have them screwed to the tree. they brought in something to break the lock off on one and cut the lock with bolt cutters on the other. way different locations different people

I think I'm going to invent a way to fit a tazer in one of the metal boxes.

I had 2 of my cams stolen in the Bethel Unit, they were there in August and gone last Friday. Pretty sure I know who did it, I have the guy on the cam a couple of times before it was taken. Not many guys would be packing a hacksaw with them to cut it free if they didn't know where the camera was located.

I think it would be cool if you could purchase a GPS device of some sort, like a phone GPS and you could follow it the adoulbessholes house.
I could care less about what anybody says..............
