Great post! But it fails to mention how to get 370 inch bulls on your camera :chuckle:

Move them to the blues.
Kindly do not attempt to cloud the issue with too many facts.

Hey all, I know this is an older thread, but I wanted to share a recent experience.  A month ago I put up a camera on a game trail off of a gated, non-motorized logging road in Pend Oreille county.  When I returned recently to retrieve it, it was gone.  They had resumed logging activities, and it was apparent that survey people had been down the game trail where the camera was.  The operation manager for the logging company told me just how many inspection and survey people are sent in before and during an operation, and he also stressed the fact that the public use of the area makes it less remote than I might think.  Regardless of this opinion and regardless of who was actually responsible for the theft, I say this to you: don't assume your location is too remote for dishonest people to find your camera, don't assume a gated road will stay gated, and maybe pay the additional money to lock and secure your camera with cases, cables, and chains.  I know this seems like common sense, but I've been doing this awhile and considered myself a good judge for safe locations to set up cameras.

Save them to your desktop, the good ones.....go to by 50%, save, then use the reduced gile to post using the attachments option below. That is what works best for me.

Hey everybody,

I am looking to get a cellular game camera and was curious what people would recommend. I want to put them in an area near Tonasket, around Haley Mt.   AT&T and Verizon get limited service up there, around 25-75% depending where you are standing, you can also get into some Canadian Providers too. Anyone have any luck with a particular trail cam co. up there? or know of some that work well with poorish service? Thanks!
