Here's a sample photo from my Recon Force BTC-2XR camera named DIYHNTR03
Here's a sample photo from my Strike Force BTC-5 camera named DIYHNTR21.
Well I knew it was bound to happen sometime. Today when I went to pull two trail cameras from some sage mule deer wintering area the two cameras were gone. I had the two cameras watching two directions off the same dead juniper tree in Morgan, Utah. Whomever took the cameras got a sweet Strike Force, BTC-5 and a Recon Force, BTC-2XR camera. They also took the Browning Tree Mount metal bracket and a Browning external battery pack.
The property they were on was on the north side of the valley butting up to Kippen property. The cameras were on my families property placed 50 yards or so from the Kippen fence. There has been an ATV traveling the fence line on the Kippen property.
The cameras were named DIYHNTR03 and DIYHNTR21 and have this in the lower portion of the images they take. I had DIYHNTR03 written on the one BTC-2XR camera but I believe the DIYHNTR21 camera did not have anything written on it.
I was hoping to catch some nice mule deer bucks on these cameras wintering this past winter but nothing exciting was on the cameras on January 31st the last time I checked them. My cousin said they were still on the tree recently when he was up on the hill. I'm guessing someone was out looking for shed antlers noticed they were on camera and decided to keep the evidence of their tromping through the property.
I have some creative ideas on how I could make them trackable if stolen in the future. Hmm....
