I thought I had mine stolen this weekend too...But later found it 20 yds away. Pulled pics from the card and found that "Mr. Black Bear" decided to play with it.

Sorry to hear that. I bought a cheap one this year for fear of the same thing. I actually had a Reconyx in my hand, and put it back. I'm glad I did, since I sleep better knowing I don't have $550 tied to a tree.

Man, that stinks! I have three in the woods right now. I try not to worry about them but I know that there are plenty of people that would walk off with them if they find them. I did get a picture of a guy looking at one of my camera's. Obviously he didn't take since I got his pic. I know the guy to. We had a good laugh about the picture!!

I hang mine 8' up a tree on a slight down ward angle

Yea I have to us a hadder to get the card
But it is both hard to see up there , tucked in a tree croch

And unless you are 7' tall or have a ladder
You will not be able to steal it
