I am such an ass! I was working on a camera and had everything done. I had the sensor mounted the glass in, put the camo tape on and was about to set the camera into the ammo box and the holes didnt line up!

I have a template that I use for the holes but i guess i had it flipped over when I drew them on the ammo box. I cant believe I did that. Now I have to start all over.

:shootin:

Ouch!

I did that too but  on a Nestle Box and I turned it around, redrilled the holes properly and the camo tape covered my mistake (and held in the 'plugs')

I would have admitted that on that other post but my mind did a good job of blanking that error out I guess, I had forgotten about it

The good thing is I was going to make a decoy cam anyway so this will be it. Last year I had my deercam stolen so i am going to put this one on the same tree with a note inside that says something like "If you are reading this note you are completely screwed because I have pictures of you taking this camera and the other one that disappeared in dec. so you better put them both back! OR i am calling the police!"

It might not work but there is a chance it could. I figure even if a different person takes this one they should be scared enough to put this one back and never mess with them again.

Or they may spend hours looking for the other phantom cam, they think has taken their picture, that's not there. Would serve them right!

thehairlessone,

That is a good idea about placing a dummy cam on the tree where the stolen one was.   I bet most do return to the scene of the crime and hope another is there (fortunatley, they all think the rest of us are as stupid as they are and will make the same mistake again)

If (when) I get one stolen, I'm going to do the same thing.....

that is a good idea too tinhorn! My original plan was to put a decoy on the same tree with a real cam aimed at it. But i thought that is a little risky too. I figured I would wait on that unless another one gets stolen then I will be out for revenge!

I figured I could put one up in the trees aiming down at it and if they try to steal it hopefully they will fall and break their damn necks!

The good thing is, the goofballs who i am sure took it are supposed to be moving but in case I am wrong I want the decoy up. I am sure whoever took it comes back looking once in a while.
