Hope you enjoy my camera
« on: November 11, 2017, 09:16:00 PM »
Well I knew it was a matter of time unfortunately, I had my first trail cam stolen. I put it up on a well used elk trail last Monday and was only going to leave it in a week and grab it back out today and what do you know, it's gone  :bash: :bash: :bash: I hate freaking thieves

Was it cabled to a tree or just a nylon strap?

To bad they don't have a GPS tracking chip in them like in your cell phone. Thieves really suck and should be delt with accordingly. Sorry for you camera loss, maybe it doesn't pay to put cameras out when people are out there walking in the woods scouting for deer & elk.

Having a camera stolen sucks and I'm sorry for your loss.  It seems like it happens a lot.  That said, and I'm not sure where you put yours, but quit putting your cameras in popular easy to get to locations.  I know some people are not physically able to go more remote, but the more popular easy to access locations are unfortunately going to me tampered with more.

Iím gonna say 75% of these suppose cam thievery is from bears. You donít use some sort of cable to secure it to the tree. Itís gonna end up at the bottom of a canyon. Elk will even knock it loose with just a nylon strap. Iíve had cams moved, flipped, turned whatever direction. All from an animal. So do your self a favor and buy a cable lock or build one yourself. Thatís just my  :twocents:

No cable or box but never have used one and never had an issue where I put them..live and learn. I'm not out much money but it was in a promising spot and only there for a week  to see when the elk moved through...I don't put them on roads so you can see them if that's what your saying....between me and a friend we have close to 20 cams and this was the first taken

Sorry to hear it.

I've had a couple walk off.....  It's a crappy feeling to get to your spot and see your camera is gone.

It's why I run cheap cams.

Nothing worse than a thief or a liar.  Sign of the times but rest easy, that worthless piece of trash who stole it is or will have a crappy life by his own hand.  Karma is a mofo.

Idaho does not restrict the use of cameras during the season or any other time of the year...you are thinking of Montana.  Thankfully Idaho rejected that idea this year.

Collector,

"75% of cameras disappear because of bears". That's an interesting opinion, but based on what I've seen, and have had happen, I would say it's closer to 1%, with the other 99% being X%$%#! thieves! I run a lot of the very noisy Scout Guard SG565's, and the bears usually can't stand them.

I run a lot of cameras,  with 18-20 being out at one given time, and I've only lost (2) because of bears. I've had quite a few mauled, punctured, chewed, but only a few that I actually never found, and that I knew was a bear. All of the rest are from pieces of shizzit, that should have their hands broken, tires shot and anything else to stop them. I can no longer use them in a couple areas for big blacktails. because of these individuals.

I don't run boxes, cables or locks. Just straps. The old Cuddie Pro's were big, and used a screw in the frame, and I loved that set up. I will say that I don't place my camera's in areas where people usually go, but I did lose one this past year up near Coweeman Lake. I couldn't believe it was gone, as it's a long walk where it was at. Either way it sucked, and it was one of my Reconyx 500's, so it was a expensive loss also.

Either way, THIEVES SUCK !

BA

Dude that sucks , if in the future you put a camera out in a spot that could be found maybe put a decoy camera out and then put your good camera in a box that you can lag to a tree that watches your elk or deer trail ad watches your camera, nothing better than to post a pic of dirty, low down pile of human feces pic on the internet for all to see!! My belief is if you get caught stealing you should get a hand chopped off!! I HATE thieves !!! Oh damn do I hate theives !!!

I hear you there. Had the same thing happen to me they smashed the security box then shot the lock off and proceeded to leave it laying on the ground after removing the SD card. Anyone recognize this guy as he is the one that did it. :nono:.
