I can never seem to find the right tree in the right place. For example, the deer here in Virginia are moving into the corn fields now. Ever try to mount a cam on the north side of a corn stalk?? AS LONG AS THEFT ISN'T A CONSIDERATION, one solution I've found is to make a tripod out of two dowel sticks and a length of rebar, duct taping them together. You need the rebar for the weight to prevent the tripod from tipping over from the camera weight up at the top. I've also gone to the local garden supply store and found wire tripod collapsable plant stands in different heights, for under 10 bucks. Now I can always place my cam exactly where I want it, facing just the right way. Anybody else got a "Plan B" when the right tree isn't available???
