Moultrie trailcam security box
« on: September 21, 2008, 07:42:27 PM »
I purchased one of these and after securing my camera inside, placed it where I had just gotten 121 events in a weeks period.  Went back today after 3 days just to check and didn't have one.  Camera was on auto and appears to be OK.   Anyone else have a similar experience?  Not sure what difference the metal casing makes as its leaves the camera wide open in the front.  Just seems weird.

Make sure that the box does not cover the detector , It could be that the new box has the smell of oil and new paint on it , if so it will take about a week for the critters to get use to it again . ;D ;D  Or the deer may be changing their areas . 0-0-0- If that box is from Moultrie check the tread on it . Here's the bracket that I use  http://deercame.dot5hosting.com/store/page2.html

After seeing that video about how easy it is to get into one of them I don't think it would be worth the money.

No..sorry for confusion...had no pictures.  Did check the camera this morning and there were several doe shots on it.

I hadn't thought about cleaning the box first.  My only thought is that its painted a glossy black and may reflect sun.  I retrieved it this morning and had several doe pictures on it.  I was going to purchase some olive drab paint and redo it.
