    Had my covert stolen while I was at work today. Good thing was I got a pic of the person before they turned it off. Figured it was fine because I didn't get anymore pics after him so I went to check this evening sure enough it was gone. Posted pic on Facebook and within 39 mins had the guys name. Contacted sheriffs offcie and before they could go to his house word got to him and he called and told me he had taken the camera. Young boy who hopefully learned his lesson. Talked with boys mother and she assured me he would be dealt with accordingly. I guess this time Facebook was good for something other than political fights.
    Now my question he either threw the SIM card away or lost it. Will covert send me another one like the one that came with the camera or can I get a new one at at&t store and get it activated?

    Call his mother and tell her you want it back or a new one so you don't press charges.

    That's awesome. I have problems with some areas with theft and always hesitated with putting nice trail cameras there. Glad you got a pic and got it back. Facebook is good for something lol

    Covert has always been great to deal with for me I was at they're headquarters earlier this week it's amazing the sheer amount of cameras they have on hand

    If it was me I would talk to his mother and get her to meet you at the AT&T store and get her to buy whatever your camera needs. Its the least she can do.

    Great! I love seeing a thief get caught. Hope mama takes a belt to his butt.

    Terrible to see young people into hunting already trespassing and stealing. Doesn't make the future look good.

    If you keep having problems go with a lock box. We keep 4 of ours secured and locked to trees incase of this.

    What happened here is now he knows momma will bail him out of trouble. I would hope that momma or dad whoops his ass. Glad you got it back.

    I don't know all of the facts here but, maybe he needs a mentor. I mean if you can swing it where you hunt, maybe befriend him take him hunting with you. That could benefit him and you if he never steals from you again.

    Covert might not have the best camera but they have had great customer support for me. Glad you got the camera, hopefully the kid learned his lesson. I would issue a stern if one foot is on my property again I'm coming after you to press all the charges I can to him in front of his parents.

    Another reason I will never, as long as they stay the same, use any camera other than Covert. Awesome folks!
