I actually prefer the adjustability to the Elusive Wildlife better. I have run those about the last 2 months and I like them better than the tpost link above...I’ve used those and they work good too.

If your camera has a mounting hole on the back, they are pretty simple to build yourself. just pick up a rectangular piece of wood that is a couple of inches wider and about 6"s longer than your camera. Get two U bolts that fit around the t-post. Get a screw that fits the hole on the back of the camera. Drill holes on the top and bottom of the board for the U bolts and one in the middle of the board that matches up to the mounting hole on your camera. Bolt your camera to the board and bolt the board to the t-post. Should cost you about $10 if you don't already have everything laying around your house.


Thanks,
Rich

Drill a hole and add a bolt to hold the camera. I’m running two cameras off it and had no issues

Tie wire and a tree. If no tree, a TPost and wire

You can also slip PVC over the post and attach with your mounting strap that comes with the camera.

I make a trail camera mount.

It wouldn't work on a T post but it works fine on any wood item, Tree, fence post, broken shovel handle driven into the ground, even the side of a barn if one wants to put a camera on the side of a barn.

Three way adjustable, wide range of adjustment, fast and easy to set up and adjust.

And although I do make them for selling, anybody can make one for themselves if they wish.

The design is ultra simple. Just a suspended ceiling screw, a flat piece of metal 3 or 4 inches long x 1 inch wide.
Twist the metal piece 90% close to the half way point. Drill a #8 hole at one end and a 1/4" hole at the other.

Attach the metal strip to the ceiling screw with a 1" #8 bolt and you are done.

If done right the thing can be screwed into most wood by hand. Once in place, attach camera with a 1/4" x 20 bolt though the 1/4" hole in the metal strip, and adjust to like then tighten the two bolts.

That gives you a very basic model and some tools are required to use it.
The ones I manufacture have many refinements and need no tools for installation or adjustment.

Mine employs a stainless steel thumb screw which is permanently attached to the mount. The pivot bolt and nut is stainless steel. And the metal strip is shaped a bit like a key blank, so the end forms a platform to stabilize the camera. Plus other refinements.

Unfortunatly I am not set up to market into the USA yet, and may never be.

This is my mount.

One final note. I have found that the number one cause of camera theft is those belts the manufacturers provide for attaching the camera to a tree.
Anything that replaces those belts that doesn't also employ belts or straps will lessen the chance of your camera being stolen.

That's actual a decent idea. Far better then the belts so many come with.

The wire is hard to see from a distance, the belts stand out and can lead to camera theft.

Great idea!

With some refinement it might also allow some up down adjustment, other then just sliding the bracket higher or lower.

I am using the Tractor Supply mounts above and love them. I drill a few more holes in them and attach the mount to a 2x4 that is hosting camera and Spypoint cell link. It allows for some downward aiming and they will not move if bumped.
