I have that problem pretty much every year. We've got a large section of public land landlocked and it never fails that people find a way onto it. The majority of times the cams are set up on feeders with stands set up (which, the feeders and stands left over 72hrs are illegal here) because ppl seem to think that no one can get there to check up on what they're doing. I won't take their stuff, but their SD cards get handed over to the game warden.

My thoughts as well. Instead of the landowner taking his/her camera, he could have done something else to inform the individual that he/she was crossing private property and it is not tolerated. Make a sign, leave a note to where they can get the camera, something other than stealing his/her device. Taking the camera doesn't stop the person from going in there, it just pisses him/her off.
