Going to be a good one. Where my best deer are at I had to pull cameras, little young punks found them and started messing with them.

I also hunt public and after getting camera's and/or SD cards stolen or vandalized, I started locking everything up with python cable locks, it's a cheap thug deterrent that has worked so far.

Going to be a good one. Where my best deer are at I had to pull cameras, little young punks found them and started messing with them.
I was on private land years ago and had 2 cameras and 2 corn piles. I have 2 kids. I basically 1 time a week would take my family and drive to the farm and check the cameras and I would tell each child that a specific camera was there’s. So after a few weeks, we went to check the cameras and 1 camera was gone. Then I found a coon laying in the farm road just past the camera spot. Then I went to the other camera. It was still there. On that camera was coon dogs. So what I did is move the location of the stolen camera just around the hill to conceal the location but knowing a dog could find it. So needless to say it worked. I didn’t have anymore problems that year and it was an isolated event. Also, I’ll say by me moving that corn pile also I started getting buck pictures earlier and sometimes with shooting light. It was a learning curve back then. Fast forward to today, I hunt public only. I have 8 cameras I run. I dont bait but also you can’t on public. I don’t get a lot of pictures, but I enjoy it better. I just make sure when I put a camera out it’s not a normal spot where those scouting are just going to walk straight into it. I don’t have camera issues and I enjoy scouting for new locations. So maybe put your camera back in there but hide it. You can always put bark or brush around the cameras too.

Where the cameras are is private land. I am the only person that has permission to hunt it. I told the landowner about a tree stand being on his property and them throwing trash everywhere, I have even picked it up myself. Property owner is in his 70's no way he's going up that hill. I may put them back out, unsure I went and talked to the kids that stole my seat and blind of course 100% denial.

Stay out of his home area as much as possible untill season starts. An you will have a good chance of killing him. I say that knowing dang well i have hunted for a big velvet buck for years and never killed one in velvet. But looking back my lack of success was mostly me being too picky and self induced mistakes. I have several on the wall over 140. Not a single velvet buck though. Good luck with him.
