Trail camera security ?
 
I just bought a Moultrie I40 game camera did the updates and have set the camera settings.

My question is has anyone come up with a way to securely mount this camera to the tree to deter someone from stealing the camera?
If so, pictures and or an explanation of how it is mounted would be appreciated.

Stainless, that is awesome.
What did you do to attach the cable lock to the box?

I welded two large washers to the bottom. You can't see it in the pictures but I also use two 5" lag bolts to secure it to the tree.

I like the lag bolt idea.
I might try drilling a hole on each of the side panels and run the cable lock thru them.

Do they have cams that are password or number code protected ? That would be the way to go once its turned off you need a password or number code to use it again.

Yes they do. My Moultrie I60 has a 5 digit password that I set for it.

Stainless, here is my version of your security box.
Thanks for sharing your information.

Looks pretty good. I don't believe anyone will be getting your cam out of that box very easily.

One question.. what are the slots on the back of the box for?

Good job.

Did not have a piece of metal big enough for 1 back panel, ended up using 2 pieces.
I plan on putting a piece of Luan or thin plywood as a back panel to keep the elements out.
