Game camera stolen in Grayson County from my feeder. There was a feeder and stand stolen also from another place. I guess I better find a way to lock cameras or hide other ones to catch thieves.

Any better suggestions? They could have walked in or drove in, it had rained so it would have washed away any tracks if there were any

There is no perfect way to secure a camera, I think it is best to not put one where anyone can see it. The lease may be private property, there are too many people wander in places they shouldn't be.

That sucks. I had a stand stolen once. The guy left a note on a 2x4' which said "I took your stand, Jeff." I hate Jeff.

I think Jeff had some other issues goin' on there, in addition to being a low-life thief. Perhaps he moved on to adultery, left a note, and is now no more.

I can only hope that is the case, or that maybe he had his junk ripped off in a combine accident.

Was this public land or private land? If private close to what town?

Been there and done that... you gotta get them up higher in the trees I suppose. Seems to help where I hunt.

I had a feeder and blind stolen in Grayson County earlier this season as well. Hunt 300 acres of private land NW of Sherman and this setup was in the middle of the woods/property. Either someone walked a long way in to take it, or one of the gas company employees took it. Still pi$$es me off.

We actually have two cameras on our feeders. One on the feeder and one on the area around the feeder/camera. I don't like thieves !!!

Same here. I've had a camera, feeder, and a feeder motor stolen from me in Grayson County. Even though I haven't had anything stolen from me in 2 years everytime I go and check my feeder I always have this feeling that I'm going to walk up and it won't be there. Really takes he joy out of it sometimes.

My cameras take their photos from above now.

My camera cards have been taken twice this year. I trust my fellow leasers, but weekday poachers are hard to catch, maybe it's that Jeff guy. I am going to have to do the two camera thing, or get my own satellite.
