Is there a way to do it on the cheap? I'm not so much worried about someone stealing it or tear it up, I just want other lease members to leave it alone and not look at the pics.

Go to Wal-Mart and in the luggage section there are little locks for suitcases. Every cam I have ever owned has a spot for a lock. The suitcase locks fit just right and you are the only one with a key

To lock the camera to the tree I use a cable with a long hasp lock or I just found that Amazon has the Master cobra cable lock for $11 with Prime. I use a roller combo lock on the camera door because I'm sure I'll misplace the keys for the locks eventually.

Might want to find a new group to hunt with that will respect your wishes and leave your stuff alone.

It's not my lease mates that bother me...it's the trespassers and freeloading poachers that wander through.

I sympathize with the OP. I am currently on a large lease with many hunters, we each have our assigned 1/2-3/4 section. Some of the guys who have been on the lease longer believe they have access to anyone's spots. Not saying they are hunting them during deer season, but do so other times. I have had game camera cards replaced at times with cards that aren't mine. You may know you can create a special folder with a a name only you would know on a SD card, and then the camera will create a sub folder based on the camera software. Just saying that there have been cards replaced. And other times, same card re-installed, but with a week or so time gap missing. I have resorted to hidden cameras overlooking the trail cam.
