Working On Cam Camo

Post by NantucketShedHunter on Tue Mar 05, 2013 3:14 pm

Ever since my M80XT was stolen from me a couple weeks ago, I lay in bed all night thinking of ways I could prevent it from happening to all my other cameras. I have lost all faith and trust in people. Anyway, I'm taking G-Man's advice and I'm starting to think more towards concealment. I'm starting with my WGI W6E. I bought some flat camo paint and started to get to work. The base coat will be the flat camo. I'm going further and getting some real foliage and glue it to the camera. Here are the first few steps. Stay tuned for more.

I would do the same thing to my cameras but it voids the warranty and i have had a few cams done that way that gave out and i was not able to send it in because of this!

Think I would look at a cheap lock box and camo it up.

That post that shows how that one guy camo'd his was pretty neat I thought. It depends on what's native to the area you hang them in. I have all different variances in foliage so one might stand out in the pines than in the open. SH your the product application specialist so, this is right up your alley brah!

Shows us some of those many years experience. My big Stealth XT would be a perfect candidate as it so bulky looking. None of my cams are under factory warranty. My Brews are and the exterior wouldn't be a factor anyway to Jim.

Those pictures are only the first two steps. I'm thinking of using instead of Liquid Nails in layers using natural foliage I can somehow glue onto the cam.
And I'm thinking of doing the same with the LED's. 4 LED's showing is more than enough light for the close sets I do. The full array of LED's showing would surely give the cam's location away. Stay tuned. This is a work in progress. I also want to find a way to cut the thief's hands off if they touch my cam.

I was out at the roll cab checking the "camera day" reload equipment and noticed my ghilie top and headgear and was thinking of the cover and concealment we've been discussing. This was a lock box for the Acorn 5210 derived from the idea Sodbuster's posted.

I added these pictures just to show how quickly and easily it is to do. Take in count that this isn't a field setting but, you can see how well this material alone can do the trick quick. I did kick around the idea of adding a base of military style camo netting then add some of this along with your local ground cover.

Also, my wife does crafts from time to time and mentioned the idea of getting alternative items like moss, mini pine cones etc. to jazz it up keeping in mind you might have to re-paint items that may fade from the sun. Also SH if you must cut back on the IR or flash window is a issue, I would cover it with 5% limo tint and can double it if you'd wish for darker and that would darn near look like the Bushnell or Primos blackout windows. Tint from the inside though brah!

I like the lock box idea because of the square design to work with and not boogering up the camera. My brews would be a little challenging due to the locking clasps and how firm it is to close them. The brews are square so that's the big plus there.

Looks good. All of my cameras are so far back in the swamp right now that I dont have to worry. I will proablly use that though when I get close to the road. Had to wear wadders to get to one the other day.

That's just an example of what cover and concealment is. As stated, use whatever is indigenous to the area your working in. Using a smaller amount of this adds a dimensional detail to what your camoing just be realistic and not overboard with it.

What has this world come to that we have to lay awake at night thinking of ways to hide our cameras from knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing, low-life bums that wouldn't think twice about stealing them? This is really pi$$ing me off. I work hard for the money to buy my cameras only to have some dumb piece of $hit steal it.

I really hope i never have a camera stolen! most of my cameras are not even locked! will be buying some Python locks in the next week or so! and i will try and blend all my cameras in a bit better!

I've never understood why hunters steal cams, stands, blinds, and feeders from other hunters. You'd think we would be a group that would watch each others back.

Shedhunter, I was so damn mad when I found my W220 gone off the stump and track the arsehole to his house and have the jackarse lie to my face! He stood behind his iron gate with a hammer in his hand (was doing some work prior to us arriving) and try to turn the whole thing around on why we have cameras in the creek, feeding deer, poaching etc. I told his dumba$$ he's full of _hit and that's none of his business what goes on on our property anyway.

Regardless telling him another camera took pictures of his dumbarse swiping it and we were going to charge his arse with trespassing and theft by taking involving the sheriff and game warden he spilled his guts the next day! I still wanted to whoop his stupid arse anyway regardless. I know exactly what your feeling and thinking as that W220 special build wasn't cheap! Taking what didn't belong to him and even showing his young grandson how to steal things on the hike made me boil even worse.
I know you remember me posting that crap on "Chasin yo tail" site, right?

I don't lock any of mine and they'd steal them anyway with those items I keep posting. Nothings safe nowadays. Why hikers or whatever decide that a camera on a tree is free bait is beyond me. They act as if the camera is like an apple and free for the taking like the tree grew a damn camera all by itself.

The country is out of hand with high prices, unemployment, govt carelessness etc. has got people being untrustworthy, thieves, liars, all about themselves, make a quick buck sellers of stolen items and the list goes on and on. Nothing like when we were teenagers back in the day. I hate this country worse everyday and wonder why I even fought for it now. Most here are sorry, worthless, dirt bags and have zero character.

This is a start on what needs to happen to your cam thief

I never understood how someone could steal anything I have seen plenty of cameras on public land that would have been an easy swipe. But i never even walk up to them , its called respect for the other hunter and common sence! My one friend traps to and he had 44 traps stolen on opening night in one creek! it was about 600 yrds from my house Evil or Very Mad

I'm out and about all the time. I see trail cameras everywhere. Most are unlocked. It would take me less than two seconds to steal them. I never even think about stealing them. I used to have a little faith in people. Now I have zero.

I'm going to deploy the cam like this for a few days until I can gather up some natural foliage and glue it to the cam

I hope it does well. You might consider using that limo tint on the IR's to tone them down and give it a blackout look. I'd get some military camo netting and tightly adhere it to it and then add the details on it as it won't mildew or rot and last for years brah! Gotta break-up that boxy outline or it will still stand out regardless.
