Skwirl: Great camo. Cam disappears. Just the horizontal green strap may draw attention. I have always tried to coverup the strap or Python cable by using local natural leaves, branches etc. I stick leaves in an around the cable and also cut branches that I can stick in the ground at the base of the tree and weave the leafy or needle covered branches in an around the camera being careful not to put anything directly in front of the camera obviously. Here is demo picture of what I am talking about. Just enough cover to help NOT bring attention to the setup.
Hey, we have some of those trees (fence posts) over here on the east side of MI, too..they get stolen if you don't cement them in..... but not up in the central LP where we hunt. Those are all ^@#$%* Jack Pine's that are worthless to try to camo something to since there are also sweet ferns all over there, too... anyone done their research??? Can anyone do a nice knot or chancre on their camo?? (I think I spelled that wrong. ) Let's see some camo in tree irregularities. Diseases, etc.. we were informed last year when we started a forest fire (quite by accident, I assure you) of about 6.8 acres, that our hunting area is called 'the zone' because of the danger of fire and the disease, etc.... problems out there.
So you guys like my Michigan backyard tree that I hang my cam on. Well, you see this is where I test them because the coons and possums come calling on my deck to eat my cats food . So I will these willing participants in camera testing each night.
HeadNurse: I am betting that you are hunting that Hale, Glennie, Tawas area of Michigan if all you have is those jackpines and scrub pines. I started my hunting life in that part of the state but quickly found out that there were REAL trees in the rest of the state. Moved over to Mecosta co. and also down here by Lansing. Trees with bark and leaves. Something you can hang a cam and treestand onto.
