    Ok. Thanks for that? I'll work on it and maybe I can be more like you when I grow up?

    The point still stands. It doesnt matter whose cams we are talking about. What I'm saying is that those whose cams have not been messed with are just lucky.

    1. Lucky to not have the cams found
    2. Lucky to have cams found by people without ill intent.

    If someone found your cams and insists on being a jerk they dont have to steal your cards or your cameras. They could simply take a bunch of mud or a branch or anything , smear it or wrap it on the camera and that camera is as good as dead. Locked or not.

    And yes, he runs the risk of being caught by another camera, but that's the case whether you are stealing SD cards or just messing with a cam.

    The fact that yours havent been messed with is probably because 1 or 2 above. Lock box might work against a curious bear ..... if someone notices a $600 cell cam behind there, and wants it bad enough, it's not that hard to come back with a couple of tools to take it.

    Volume up and listen to the snort-wheeze at the start of the video. This was one of the most action packed evenings I've had in years and years of camming. Great pre-rut activity sorting out the pecking order.

    He's over 150" for sure.


    Would have been a lovely deer with a bow though.

    Heading up Christmas day to pull some cams out for the year, have a fire and enjoy the sunset.
    I will post up the last of this years videos shortly after.

    I run up to 15 cams and they are ALL boxed and lag bolted to the tree. Just too much invested in time and $$$ to not do it. I bought a 18v drill and some bits and made some of my own lock boxes. I also buy good quality locks.

    If someone is going to hike in, find my camera, hike back out, drive the 1-2 hours back home, get their saw or bolt cutters, drive/hike all the way back just to cut down a tree for a $150....go for it. I usually use the lags/box/lock to stop the odd asshat that wants to steal/screw with the camera, but more so for the elk and bears that can be a PITA on the camera.

    High Country, some great video!! What model of Bushnell are you running as I am looking to start phasing out my old (2012) Spypoints and Bushnells as they are slowly dying. I don't need a lot of fancy stuff, just good HD video and day and night pictures.

    Cheers

    Those videos are from the Essential E3. Have a bunch of them as well as a few Bushnell Trophy Cam's. The price point/quality of the E3 is tough to say no to.

    Things I look for in a camera:

    Trigger speed
    Detection range
    Video quality - Don't get hung up on megapixel ratings. Companies inflate megapixels through interpolation (digitally adding mp's without improving the picture).

    Based on those things, I only run Bushnell's and Brownings - quality and reliable. I do have one Reconyx (unbelievable camera) but at their price point, it's not economical to run 20+ in the field.
