Above in this thread, we were talking about folks stealing trail cameras, I'll tell you this real quick.
I've mentioned about me mounting my cameras, standing on a milk crate, and mount them up just as high as I can reach. Just to get them above eye level and all, out of the way of bears. Well, the other day when I went to check a camera, and I forgot my milk crate.
Long story short, it was a chore to change the SD card, and get the camera closed up again.
But over in the other thread, I said that because of my job, I've trained myself to think like a thief. I sized up my camera, just like I was going to steal, my own camera. The only way that I could have gotten it off of that tree, would have been to cut the strap. Honestly, I think that would have been a chore too.
Standing on one foot, up as high as I could reach, one handed, it would have taken a little effort.
But I was thinking, if a feller would take the lock end of a snare cable, and zip the snare up tight (around the tree), that would take the edge off of a knife blade quick. I guess if a feller really wanted to lock it down tight, you could always slip a ferrule up on the snare end, and crimp it down with pliers. Very few people in the woods carry anything that could cut snare cable. Just something to think about.
