    I bought a new trail cam about 3 months back. Managed to get 7 weeks use out of it and then it was stolen by some jackass. Fortunately, it's not top of the range - cost me 60 bucks in all.

    I was considering that the next time I use a cam, perhaps I'd set up a secondary cam unit which "spies" on the first one. Apparently there's been rather a lot of cam theft in my area so if I can get some footage of the thieving dude, should this happen again, then perhaps I'd be doing all cam enthusiasts a service.

    Feel free to share your own experiences, and/ or thoughts, thanks.

    Shame you can't set up a sniper hide and whack the jerk with a barrage of frozen paintballs when he came back.

    if you leave something of value out, someone WILL get it.

    add a second cam to watch the first,then dig a 10 foot tiger pit under the first and camouflage it.You'll catch your thief and have some cool sh*t for us to watch on you tube!

    What if they take the second cam? So you will need a third cam to watch the second cam.
