Won't stop the thieving but if you know who took it you might be able to get it back. I've got 2 coming, will put 1 on the track in and one covering the buildings etc..

Hi Geoff,

Some places sell cheap dummy camera boxes. Might be worth while fitting one in an obvious place but where it can be seen by a hidden camera. If the *** think that they have found a camera and killed it they may not look any further.

Try "Trail Camera" or Game trail camera" and have a look at the variety of cameras that are coming onto the market for monitoring purposes and useful for just this sort of situation. Some have very good low light capabilities and are virtually undetectable so if they are well sited and well hidden they are very effective in giving the Police a few images to match to the undesirables. They might noy stop the perpetrators but at least you have evidence to use for insurance/court/reporting purposes.

I would love to get a few of these and place them in the forest at the back of Kenilworth Queensland.

It sounds pretty strange but we did a search up through the hills there and found a huge footprint in the mud in a remote spot.

About a size 25 shoe foot

It would be interesting to see if we could get a photo of whatever left that footprint :-)

They are coming down in price but the trick is to get the right one. Some of them are so sensitive to light they do not have any Infra Red emissions that even in the smallest of amounts seems to be picked up by game. The story goes that even Leopards cannot sense them and will happily drink whilst being photogragphed. The Kiwis use them a lot for deer monitoring before hunting an area. Not so sure if that is a good idea or not but that is another debate.
Lots of models; same as usual get what you pay for.

Geoff C,
Hope the cameras work,in the past we have had trouble with pig chasers coming onto the property here and on neighbours properties.They drive along until they spot a pig or find a likely looking place and just drive in, leaving gates open as they go.We tried locking gates, so they cut fences or locks .We put up signs from a local security company advising of cameras , they still cut locks and left gates open every where. meaning plenty of stockwork ,sorting cattle back into paddocks.We eventually got rego numbers and all they got was a slap on the wrist.The police are even frustrated as they have caught the culprits a few times and they just keep doing it.

We now enter a whole arena of "what is the world coming too!" and I sympathize with you as we have a farm and have experienced similar situations. Probably not the place to debate such a subject as the soap boxes will just get taller and taller.
The cameras are good for many situations and at least photogragphic evidence especially with time and date stamps gives the Feds something to work on but the courts...........another time and place.
