We don't have any significant trees so t-post mounts seem like the best option. I see several things on the market. I'm currently using bailing wire. I need to mount 5 covert cameras and their solar panels. Curious what others are using.

Gunnyart on here made t-post mounts, with an optional sun shield. I bought a couple and like them. But, he hasn't posted since early October. Not a good sign. I sent him a PM.

I like the Elusive Wildlife mounts better...get the double post and you can put both the solar and the camera on the same mount.

These are the solar panels I have. I realize there are probably better options on the market but I bought five of these from covert when I got my cameras. They seem to charge the batteries just fine but they are somewhat tricky to mount. The panel is not rigid. The entire thing is kind of like a three ring binder cover you could almost roll it up if you wanted too. They just have two holes one at the top and one at the bottom to mount it too. I probably could weld something up to hold them but was hoping there was something on the market that could hold them.

I like doing them like this:

It is a landscape timber from home depot cut in half in a cheap 5 gallon bucket with 1/2 a 60 lb bag of sack crete.

I like doing them like this so that they are easily portable.


High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

Nice setup. Do you have many hogs? I would worry that they would push that around or over at my place. I have the 600 lb stand and fill feeders and while they haven't knocked them over they have moved them. I put out some 50 lb salt blocks and I often find them tens of yards from where I placed them. It did give me a good idea though. Instead of a T-post I can drive a 2 -3/8" pipe in the ground. I would easily be able to rotate the camera in any direction and attach it securely with the straps. I could also easily weld a plate to the post at a 45 to mount the solar panel on.
