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.

Post it. See if anyone recognizes him

I just got back from my Oregon elk hunt and had 3 cameras up for two months. One was moved and messed with, pointing 180 away from the trail I had it pointed down and the other one which I was really excited for to see what it would have produced for pictures was stolen😡! I just don't know why people have to mess with other people's stuff!

Where are You guys putting them? How Deep in?
Most of the places I would put a camera I would be shocked if 5 guys walk by it in a year?

Mine are anywhere from .2 to 8 miles off of the nearest road. Never ever have had anyone on camera that I didn't know. This one that got stolen was 3 miles off of the nearest road or trail.

That is just crazy.  >:(
Is it a high traffic forest? or open country like on the east side. You can see for quite a distance on the eastside. I think they would stand out.
I have a hard time believing that people would find one up in My spot? but I guess You never know. So if I buy one I will get a cheap one so it won't hurt so bad.

Buy cheap. Mine are all under $40. All of mine are in thick timber.

Where about was your camera?  Just GMU......Did you get your card back a couple days later? 

My buddy came back to camp this year with my SD card just to find out he pulled someone elses.  We returned it the next day and pulled the right card which was one finger ridge over.   :chuckle: :chuckle:

Cousin had his card stole.. Had my pics erased a couple times in different spots. I'm done being cheap. Buying boxes for all of my cams.

Between me and my buddy we had 6 cameras out, 1 was stolen, 1 had the batteries removed, 2 had the cards taken, 2 left alone.  Not very good this year.  I have only had a card removed one time before.  Makes me the maddest that it is hunters taking them.  I could care less if someone wants to take a look at the pics on the card, but at least get it set back up again.  But stealing it?!  :nono: :mgun:

Who had a cam stolen this year?
« Reply #28 on: October 31, 2017, 09:42:38 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?
We had one taken in 356 this year too.  The other 5 that were locked up did not wander off.  We have a pretty good idea who took it... they must have thought they own the land more.

The one we lost was 7 miles in by foot and in timber.  The camera was taken sometime between Labor Day and the archery elk opener.  Sucks to think other "bowhunters" will steal from you.
