What a lot of people need to start realizing is that they need to get off of the beaten trail to set up their cameras.  If they would get further than 50 yards I would bet that a lot fewer of them would be riped off.  I took a ride on my wheeler the other day and found no less than 4 of them and 2 of them were covering the same mud hole with no tracks around it.  It is nice to use technology to help you figure out where you are going to hunt but you really need to get out and find the animals on the hill and not just in the one secreat spot that you have picked out that a dozen other hunters know about. 

Critter you are so right. mine go back atleast a mile off any trail or road, I know very few people that would venture that far off the trail in western oregon.

Then the people that would venture that far off the trail or road would respect your property.

I would sure hope so, but just incase they dont it is locked up pretty good and someone would need bolt cutters to get, and again dont know to many people packing boltcutters that far back.

It's sad that hunters are

It's sad that hunters are doing this to other hunters. Not really what I'd call looking out for eachother.

Around here, it hasn't always

Around here, it hasn't always been hunters stealing/damaging cameras. There are accounts of anti-hunters being the culprits. In any case, get them well off the beaten path and locked up.

I had mine up in eastern

I had mine up in eastern oregon for a few weeks between trips and had a few pics of other hunters, i'm glad they were honest and left it alone, it also had some great pics of deer and elk.
