Well it would be destroyed by my friend so why not keep it??
You can place a camera up high and angle it down to take pictures; cows can't rub it. Nothing will stop a camera thief. Some bolt cutters are small enough to carry in a backpack.
FWIW...that's the origin of our high fences here.
I usually take 2 lone wolf ladder sticks with me, try to get them high. I have had one taken, but that just the risk you take.
idaho is bad wit land locked pub land, rich fellows buy just enough land to land lock. as far as im concerned public is public. i know there are a few on here that have their own priv land that land locks public land and they love the idea of it and will try their damnedest to keep people out. i mean no offense, but if its public land its just that, public land. if i was lucky enough to have some land locked land i may think diff:D id hope not though. there has got to be something we can do as avid outdoors men to change some laws concerning this prob.
Look at it this way. Suppose you owned (bought and paid for) a piece of land and some rich guy had your property land locked. How would you feel about it. I'm a vet and served my country. That "public" land belongs to me. No one should be able to keep me from using and enjoying it. If some landowner steals my property be it public land or a camera, I'm araid I might become his worst nightmare.
