I have never had one taken. I don't see any real way to stop it. They don't have very good anti theft connections.

One of these, mounted sideways, loaded with a 00 buckshot round.

Trip, bang

Works good for unattended deer hunting also.

If they have tools with them and are cutting through a python cable then they are out specifically to get your cameras, not just opportunity thieves, and there's not much you can do. There are metal bear boxes that you can buy for some cameras, that use lag bolt type hardware into the tree, and then lock shut, but really if they want them that bad, they will get them. If they keep coming back, you could try using a crap or broken decoy camera with another mounted up out of sight, like suggested above, to see if you can find out who's doing it...

Yes private land.we used bear boxes, just thinking of ways to attach that is better than cable.just thought with all ya all.out there some one way smarter than me has come up with a better way.we can build the box ,out of 1/2" plate .no problem.use a hokey puck lock.the challenge comes attaching to tree in a bullet proof manner!!! We are going to try something just wondered what other hunters did , we know real hunters don't walk around with bolt utters!!!!!!! And yes I would like to catch the No good son of a ...... But iam not sure it would stop a a ass kicking and jail over a 500$$ camera .

Its got to be one person doing it. Catch him and your problems are solved. My Python locks have always kept my cameras where I left them. Also maybe work on hiding them more, sometimes you got to get creative. A unpainted bear box can be spotted on a tree no problem I would imagine.

Two cams......one hidden as much as possible watching the decoy cam. Have the hidden one set up to send pics to your phone so even if they get it hopefully you at least get a pic/time stamp.

Thats not really hunting when you start setting up cameras to watch people instead of deer. Go back and track the deer how real men do it.
