    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.

    That is what I do. Got that from my cousin in Ottawa. Even though he hunts 80+ Acres on his own private property, he has people come and walk dogs/ as well as steal lumber. also use the private trail to cut across his whole property to come out by his house. Always interesting visiting up there and to watch people come out of the woods. Interesting conversations.

    This is what I do in area's that are known to have company. I put a tree peg in the tree, take a step up and put it, angled down as high as I can reach. Then I take the peg out when I am done checking the camera.

    Back in the day when we use to install our own tape decks or high end radios in cars I knew of a guy that soldered trout hooks on the underside of his Blaupunkt as a deterrent.

    I have lost 3 cameras over 600 $ all on private property. I now try to put them off the main trails to the side out of view from anyone walking by.

    In my case I know it was my stand nearby that tipped the thief off. I've started putting the camera a distance from the stand so they aren't looking around as much for the camera. On a negative note, I did forget the key to the lock box the other day and it's a 1 hour drive from my house. :/
