    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.

    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.

    I think land owners blocking access to public land is wrong and treating it like it's theirs is as bad as stealing. If someone is hunting or fishing on posted land, that's one thing but harmlessly crossing it is another.

    FWIW...that's the origin of our high fences here.

    I will not disagree with you at all. Public land should be accessible by all, regardless if it is surrounded by private.

    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 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.
