Set this cam out 3 weeks ago and when I came back to the tree it was gone.  This is private property, we know all the neighbors and theft has never been a problem.  That's what I thought had happened until I found this 15 yds away

Could it be a bear?

Looks like something a bear might do if the camera wasn't securely fastened to the tree and there was no Python lock (but a large bear could break a Python). That;s why all of mine are in steel boxes -- P32-6 (2).JPG

That's right, I have to share my hunting spot with horses [rolleyes]
usually they don't bother cams but they can fill up a memory card in one day.  I started using really small bungee cords to mount my cameras,
I'm wondering if a regular nylon strap would have prevented this?

Is the camera fixable?

1 smashed eneloop
cracked flash glass
broken LCD on the Nikon L11
dented fresnal
crushed battery holder
and the SSII was bent but I think it just popped out of the standoffs

Luckily I had an extra LCD for the camera, I replaced it and it seems to be working.  I also have extra glass, fresnal & battery holders so I should have it up and running in no time.  Kind of a pain but it could've been worse.
