Well, figured it would happen sooner or later. camera gone. Bastards bent the posts around the gates and went in on 4 wheeler. They left my stand but took the camera. Figure they will be back for the stand. Screw it. not gonna buy anymore cameras and if they take the stand just gonna start using a climber. A shame a hard working man cant have anything these days.

I think ill take a cheap camera and put it up in a tree on daytime mode only to see if i can catch them coming back in. Even if i do im sure the law wont do anything though. I dont get it.

Most hunters i know have more stands than they use and enough cameras. i dont know why they steal this stuff. i gues for some pocket change. if i need a stand i go buy one. not worth the risk and time to go steal a 100$ stand or 75$ camera. I hope i catch them

Make them hard to see and a pain to steal. Mount them 12 ft in the air and aim them down along the trail or over whatever attractant you are using.

I have never had a trail cam stolen and I have had up to 20 of them on public land at one time. I have 12 out on public land right now. I did lose one but only because I didn't mark the location on my GPS and I forgot where I hung it. I know...I'm an idiot.

I can only hope some harm comes to them.
That is what I usually do anyway.

I'll probably jinx myself now, but this is what I have done:
- First thing out of the box (after making sure it works), it cover in the stretchy camo tape. I am trying out taping and then spray painting some this year.
- Place them above eye level. This is why I like the Moultrie M80s. They have a red light that you use to make sure they are aimed right. I think "out of sight, out of mind". I have numerous photos of people walking right past.
- Don't forget to hide the strap. If possible place on a tree that has leaves that conceal the sides of the camera. This backfires when wind catches the leaves and blows them around in front of the camera. Then you get over 2,000 photos in a single week! Cover strap with leaves, sticks or paint.
- Don't use the glow in the dark tacks to mark you trail to the cam.

Soldering iron... carve your DL# into the face of your camera. Makes it reeeeeal hard to re-sell like that, and reeeeeal easy to track back to you.

I know your pain someone stole mine about 3 weeks ago they even took my trophy rock. I will keep hunting the area since it is my land. I will probably have my wife drop me off and wait for them to come in and try to hunt. It will come back to them.
