    Default Trail Cam theft prevention

    ADVERTISEMENT
    [COLOR=#000000]Hello everyone, I'am sure many of you are starting to get the itch, and cant wait for the upcoming season, I have been behind schedule this year with my trail cameras, but am hoping to get them out shortly. I am hoping to explore some new areas this year, and like many of you I started to think about how to prevent my trail cameras from being stolen.

    have started a few prototypes to prevent my cameras from being stolen, once I finish them I will post them so you all can see. that being said I was just curious to what all of you guys use to prevent theft. Its a shame we even have to think like this but what can you do.

    thanks for looking.

    If putting out in public land-be willing to loose them.
    If elsewhere-good lock and cable will do it.
    Steel box also helps greatly.
    Putting them as inconspicuous as possible helps greatly-i have had trespassers walk by without noticing they are on camera..........
    This helps on public land too.Not cutting lanes also helps.

    Remember-dishonest ppl or thieves will stop at nothing if they want the camera.
    All measures are good for the honest ppl and potentially for the thieves of opportunity.

    Please keep us posted-Curious about your device.

    Around here you would need a 6 ft fence with razor wire around your cam. But then they would just cut the fence !!

    Thanks for the replies. I have had cameras on public/ crown before. Nothing stolen so far. Knock on wood

    I agree only so much can be done to prevent theft, if someone wants it bad enough they will likely succeed, once I get them finished I'll show you what I have come up with. I'm sure some people won't agree with my method of attaching it to a tree, but we will see.

    Seven feet up the tree, and tilted down to take pictures. Most people never see anything above their line of sight, and walk looking at the ground not up in the trees.

    Same here. I usually have three cameras on Crown land, all with metal boxes and lock cable. Never had one stolen yet, but wouldn’t be surprised if one day one did get stolen.
