Very nice! My stands are still snowed in and I doubt that the bears are out yet. Hopefully I can get in there next weekend.

Real nice lookin' bears!
I was going to ask this in another topic, but I'll ask here as it suits the thread. How do you guys prevent the bears from devouring the trail cameras right off the tree? I was considering buying a trail cam, but I'm thinking that with bears you need a good cage (whatever those covers are called) to go over it. To be honest, I'm also a little concerned about the two-legged rats that roam the woods stealing it than I am about the bears eating it.

Trail Camera thieves

I haven't had a bear eat my cameras in the 8 years I have been using them. Had some nose them and one I saw used it as a step ladder to get up a tree. Also had a huge bear come in and knock it to one side each time he came to the bait.

I think a camera cage is a great idea not only from the bears but also from people. I had a great stand years ago paid $300.00 for it back in the early 90's . It was the type you could place nearly on every tree with a tree step pin that the stand sat on. I went in to hunt one day and only the pin was left even took the tree steps- weird the idiot didn't take the pin or maybe couldn't get it out of the tree. The outfitter I guide for in Thompson, Manitoba actually caught 2 mining employees driving off with his new 2 person stand and when confronted they gave it back and told him they thought it was abandoned.( a new stand that was just set up a week prior ) yeah right.

Any way I've invested in a cable lock for the cameras for now and am looking around at various camera protectors. Also lock my stands up now as well.
If I do catch someone in the act - well lets say I can always use more bait!!

Hey guys hope you don't mind if i chime in. I'm new to this site and also new to bear baiting this being my first year. I set my camera up it took pics of this bear for a whole night. The next day when he came back he ripped the camera off the tree and broke it to bits. I've since invested in a Cuddeback and the "Bear Box" it is built to fit the Cuddeback, it bolts to a tree and then locks the camera in so them two legged vermine cannot pack them off either.
