Game Camera Lock

Here is a friendly reminder for you... Don't leave a game camera in the woods without using some type of Security Box or Locking Cable.

I've mentioned before that I have been a victim of game camera theft.  Since then, I have never placed a game cam in the woods without leaving a lock on it.  Even with a lock, you can't guarantee that someone with a pair of lock cutters won't walk off with your camera, but it will at least deter the crimes of opportunity.

I bring this up again, because I received an email131913191319 this morning from an old hunting buddy in Texas, stating that is new Moultrie I60 had been stolen.  He said he knew better than to leave it in the woods unlocked, but though there was no chance of it being stolen in the remote area he had left it.  Well it is too late for him now, but it isn't too late for you.

If you don't want to spend the money on a security lock box, you should at least pick up a security cable and a pad lock.  Most game cameras on the market will have a locking hold that will accept a padlock.   If you want a quality game camera lock box, then check out what CamLockBox has to offer.  I have one of their security boxes for my Scoutguard SG550.  It locks tight, and there is no way anyone will get into it, without a pair of lock cutters that is.

If you don't have a lock or security box for your game camera(s), then check out the options at the following link: Game Camera Lock Box.

    Thanks for the reminder, this may be basic stuff but often forgotten. It’s nice that from time to time someone would knock senses in our heads, especially when securing your hunting equipments such a game camera.

    I lost 2 of mine, due to stupidity.

    Thanks bud.
