Python cables work but I can cut through one with a Leatherman in about 3 minutes. I generally put mine off the beaten trail basically on trails leading to my stands. TC
    How do you know a Leatherman works in # minutes?

    Thanks all, appreciate the advice.
    plan was to test out a location on crown land basically, for Wildlife passing by, and hunters ... I try very hard to get away from other hunters, but it is becoming apparent to me that others dont feel the same.

    I goto a couple stops that are at least 8KM of hike away from closest trail. My Guess is other hunters would push animals towards these areas that get less/ no human traffic. so wanted to test that out and also make sure others dont go there, to hopefully set up a stand there eventually.

    gonna try it with a cheap side cam and try to hide it as much as possible. I guess if it gets taken, I know the spot is not that good ...

    No question that hunters push game, but some recent studies have shown that deer won’t leave their home range when pushed. Basically they move, but not very far and often return.

    I’ve done a lot of bushwhacking while trying to find the mother lode of deer. In spite of all my wandering its been my experience that deer won’t be very far from food sources, regardless of hunter presence. Lots of times, they will lay still and let hunters walk past.

    The big benefit of getting off the beaten path is that deer are likely more relaxed and prone to making mistakes

    I do a mix of public and private land hunting. Over the years I've only had one camera stolen which was on public land. I had a mineral block set up so it wasn't hard for the thief to find my camera. Since then I've only put my camera on game trails as to not make it so obvious. I've had many people walk by and never notice the trailcam. I also buy the cheapest ones. I only want to know if there's game there and the quality isn't as important to me.

    I hunt a lot of crown and my experience has been good here in Eastern Ontario, (knock wood) I have never had a cam stolen. I am use to leaving stuff unattended in the woods as I camp on crown land near Algonquin Park and you cannot really pack everything up each morning while your out for the day. I think once in 20 years of camping in Ontario I found one person snooping around my truck while they we were out and they were camping right beside us.

    I was able to grab a few Primos bullet proof at 50 bucks each at Canadian Tire a few years ago but I'm not sure if they still sell them. Batteries last a long time and the pictures are decent. I also bought one from Wild Game Innovations that was quite cheap that does the job but not sure of the model. My most recent purchase was the Link Micro which was on sale for 150$ which is my go to in places that have cell service.
