    Interesting. Or instead of carrying that pole, bring 1 climbing stick and hang it out of reach that way.

    I do like the lazer idea of positioning the camera

    Elevated cams need to be precisely aimed .

    The field of sensor activation or zone of activation is much smaller animals will be missed otherwise.

    All my years I only lost 1 camera so I'll be setting mine conventionally. On a bear bait in the middle of nowhere. Go figure

    I find I get far fewer shots from elevated positions, and animals are often out of frame before the trigger goes.

    On private land, I try to lock the camera but have the "door" to the SD card unlocked (easier with some models than others). Often trespassers don't want their picture taken, but aren't there to steal cams so they take the card instead.

    I had to go to a metal security box and a cable lock, as well as putting it out of the line of sight. That's all fine and dandy preseason but it makes checking it really tough when its in-season. I've given up on any camera that doesn't have a PIN number. My cameras are on public land so they aren't likely being stolen by trespassers.
