How to catch deer camera SD card THIEF

Reply
 
I recently discovered my SD cards were stolen from my deer cams' they left the cameras but stole the SD cards. They had to go through a lot of troublebecause you can only get to this place by boat.

I am so angry.... Nothing much that a filthy thief.

I couldn't wait to get out there to see what i had pics of on my cameras, after 5 weeks of waiting to get back out there and saw good tracks all around the cameras.... UUGGHHH!!

Has anyone come up with a way to catch these thieving pieces of sh!t???? God forgive me, but I want to hurt them soooo badly!

SEMPER FI !!!

you can always hide a camera looking at the camera they vandalized. OR.... you can get one of those fancy cameras that send pics to your phone instantly. problem with those are they are really expensive and possible they may approach it from behind it too. could hide the instant one looking at the other. just conceal real good. hope this helps!

Yep, I thought of that back up camera idea, but if they go at night to steal the cameras then I know they'll see the flash from the hidden camea it takes their picture…

A HD night vision camera that doesn't use a flash would be great as a hidden camera… I'll have to research it and see what's available.

Thanks for the reply, happy hunting

they have lots of cameras out there with no flash. they use infrared and take excellent pictures at night. pay close attention cause some shine red when it takes pics. you gonna want one that doesn't do anything but just take the pic. if i was by mine i could tell you the one i have. i have some spypoints that just has a little red light, but can't remember which one of mine doesn't have any light. i'm sure someone will give you a tip before i get in. sorry offshore right now. i'm sure your local academy will have something decent. you'll have to do your research cause not sure how much help their reps will be.

Be thankful they only stole your cards. Most steal your cameras. I would put my old junk cameras at ground level working or not and put my good cameras about 20 ft away tucked in tree about 15 ft high. U can put a piece of black tape over red light on some cameras. Try yours and see if it still works correctly. I know Apex Predator had someone steal one of his cameras but he had a camera opposing that one that got thief. He posted his pic around but not sure if he got his camera back.
