    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.

    I had 4 stolen last year and heres the problem . Unless your the property owner your screwed . I have mine on private property and even caught the guy leaving the property in his truck by one camera he missed . Guess what the land owner did not want to mess with filing charges so I was just out 4 cameras , These are not cheapies I build my own using high quality sony, nikon annd canon cameras . Thieves are just plain dirt bags , I build mine to accept 1/4" aircraft cables that run through the cams, Not only did he finally cut the cables with something but he totally scared the trees of thier bark trying to get them removed . I decided this yr I would not put any out and sold them all but just a couple
