That was an ideal way to handle the situation. The kid obviously had some good in him to begin with to return the camera. He could have kept it or tossed it and no one would have been the wiser.

Calling him out on it in a respectful way, and not calling the cops/pressing charges will be enough to keep him straight from now on I bet.
I hunt, therefore I am.... I fish, therefore I lie.

Darn kids here.  Good way to handle things. :tup: Do any of you hang em higher so ladder needed to access?  I think it would reduce theft.  I don't run cameras so its just an idea of mine?
Iíve hung them 10+ feet up the tree before, but sometimes the tree canopy is too thick to allow it.

Not that the python cables are any good ... but I laugh at all the camera companies that have little plastic tabs that the cables go through.  That camera is robust compared to my Moultries.  Might as well have a zip tie holding the cable onto the camera.  I dont even bother.

What program did you use?  I accidentally deleted a video from the SD card if the Dr singing to my newborn son in the NICU.  Haven't used the card since.

I hung one about 20' up a in tree, well camouflaged at a whorl with bark covering most of the front and sides. Someone still saw it and busted it off of the tree. The strap and bracket was still attached to the tree, camera gone. They must have beat it with branches or something, no way to climb the tree, I hung the camera with a ladder. Some good pictures before it got stolen though, may have to put up in a separate post. In the Tenino area as well interestingly enough...

I was able to recover the pictures they deleted of themselves, ID him as a local kid, and make him buy me a new camera as hopefully a teachable lesson (his parents were beyond shocked and embarrassed).

A+ detective work!

I had to buy a license for the software. If youíre close to Tenino, I could try and help you out and save you some money.

What?!? How?! I can hardly find my own cameras often when I go to retrieve, and I am the one who hung them, at roughly eye level (or a couple feet above).

Also this thread is realllly making me antsy about the 6 cams I have in the woods right now! I am always so paranoid about animals of the two legged variety getting up to no good with other peoples property.

Lost two cameras during spring bear season. the first was in a padlocked bear box, They beat the padlock off and stole the camera. The second was in a very remote area where I was unconcerned about thieves so I didn't use a box, it was the first camera I've ever actually had eaten by a bear. Oh well

Do you guys think its worth to go with cables or a box? I just got my first 2 cams from Midway USA. I spent a $100 for both so it won't break my heart if they get stolen. I'm thinking of just using the strap and making sure its camouflaged well.
