I've never found evidence of people messing with mine though half have caught people on them at some point. Seems like most people smile and wave if they notice it. Or in this case, "Rock On"
Is he packing meat out of your honey hole? Lol

Never had a camera stolen, but did have one jackwagon pick up my block of salt and pack it around a bit before he dropped it back on the ground.  Don't think he ever did see the camera, or maybe he did and saw that it was a cel camera and decided to not swipe anything :dunno:

I've lost 2 cameras to thieves just this year. I think there's a subset of hunters that take pride in bending as many rules as they can. I've met some before. They usually like chew and energy drinks, take long shots without practice, and steal people's trail cams or memory cards. Other hobbies may include burning tires, dumping trash on the side of the road, and claiming spots.

I've only had one guy mess with a cam. Was on video walking up to it and opening it, then looked around, closed it and walked off. I imagine he thought another cam was on it.

This one I'm surprised stayed up, he knocked it all around.

I currently have 10 cameras out in WA and haven't ever had anyone mess with any of them. Most of my stuff is on private where if someone did notice them they would probably be more inclined to steal them to cover their tracks.

On the flip side, I had 4 out in ID this year and 2 of them were stolen (not by 4 legged animals) as of 2 weeks ago. I'm sure the locals will say it was a fellow apple maggot that stole them.

I should have been more specific. Grizzly chew and monster energy drink probably driving a 01 dodge Cummins.  :chuckle:

1out of 3 sorry.
Grizzly chew is spot on
Rock star
90's Chevy.
You was close. :chuckle:

I got to tell why Rock star. Ever try to freeze one.
Stuff is like anti-freeze,if your gonna drink that stuff.
Might as well go big,or go home. :chuckle:

I do still have one here or there. I was starting to have digestive problems. So I had to slow it down.
Monsters are probably better for ya than rock star.
Favorite rock star. Zero sugar silver ice.
I'm down to like one a week now,instead of one or two a day.

Back on topic ,about these trail cam stealing SOB.

From the opening post: I will get right to the point.  Hunters give hunters a bad name.

Careful now, there seems to be a right opinion to hold and a wrong opinion and anyone who deviates form what the powers that be decide is the consensus opinion that "we all need to stick together."  Who are you to judge? etc.
