Default Game camera thief

A game camera thief has taken two of my cameras this year. I'm wondering if some of you guys can tell me what you use to mount your camera inside and the camera still function properly. Appreciate any help.

Man i hate thieves, that crap runs rampant around here. And another bad part if it's secured good they just destroy them, tree stands, trail cams ect. Good luck finding a solution.

They make cameras with GPS in them now. They work great for catching camera thieves and they usually come with the option to remotely download images. One minor problem...NOT CHEAP!!!

Mount a camera high up in a tree angled down to your hunting spot. Use a fake box on a tree for bait. As long as it looks like another camera and you can get them in range of the real one.

it's certainly nice to have pictures of your camera thief, but... unless you know who it is, (neighbor, friend, hunting buddy) don't expect the police to take your pictures of the thief and actually try to find him.
