Ouch, thats never a good feeling. That's been the major reason I haven't invested in one yet, you just can't trust some people these days. Even fellow sportsmen.

That sucks...

I had one out at a potential trapping spot that was pretty out of the way. Had someone moon the camera. Certainly didn't set there...

It was like... squirrel, squirrel, coon, squirrel, heron, person, person's butt... :no:

I got three cameras and always put a heavy cable and lock on them when they are out. I also try to put them in spots where you would need to be looking for them to find it.

Also do not spend more than $100 per camera. That way if it does get grabbed I am not out a ton of cash.

They are cheap but the point is sad to see people take someone else cam. Oh well live and learn

Maybe I'm on the cheap side, but I don't consider $100 a small expense. That's several days worth of shells for hunting, or a nice group of decoys, or a lot of other stuff I'd rather not see stolen.

Don't get me wrong I would be peeved at getting $100 camera swiped, but that is the chance you take when you put them in the woods. Some camera's go for over $500+. I am sure they are great but I would never buy one first because of the expense and second because I would be beyond angry if someone swiped it.

Last year I was lucky enough to get a whole bunch of pictures of some red headed inbred putting duct tape over my camera... when I went back to get it, me and my two buddies ran in to him (who was built like a starving Ethiopian) and his girlfriend. Ahh fun times, nothing like being 2 miles to the closest road and running in to a hippy half your size who you want to maim.
