Sometime last July I was out checking my cameras with my wife an dog riding around in the polaris ranger most of the afternoon, hung some cams an brought some home an all was well or so I thought.
A couple weeks later I grabbed my back pack an cams and went out to hang one behind the house, no key ring full of cable lock keys, nowhere to be found  [confused]  [confused]  I looked everywhere for em.

Fast forward to the first of November, I'm out hanging scent balls on trees in front of my blind an something caught my eye, a cable lock sticking outta of the dirt  [eek], I grabbed it and out came my keys still in the lock!
The lock was smashed by a brush-hog but only two keys were bent, the cable was a mess all beat up like but I got my keys back!!
I must have grabed the cam and just left the lock laying there an when the neighbor mowed the field the mower just hit the lock part an smashed it, Lucky lucky me!!

I always keep an extra ring at home in the draw just in case.

Thank goodness you found them Bruce. Knowing your luck you'd have been out there with cable cutters getting your cams off the trees and the State Police would have shown up right then. Seeing your picture I'm sure they wouldn't have believed your story and you'd have ended up in some type of an institution. [rofl]

I left my keys in my lock several times.  The last time I did that they were rusty.[smile]

I've done that trick before myself. Old age  [biggrin]

Another screw up story.
I took a buddy along to hang a cam in a prime spot, we were going to get bobcat cat pics, bear pics and may even a mountain lions picture.
I had a brand new python cable lock an when I was removing it from the cardboard card, I gave a good pull on it an the KEYS went flying over a 20' ledge in the woods & leaves below us an were never ever seen again.
Picked up my camera an came home all sad like  [mad] 
So I have a brand new cable lock with no keys, need the key numbers to get new keys  [tounge2] but the keys are long gone....

I have a bunch of keys if you would ever want to check them on that cable.

I'm good at the moment but you never know.

I have a dxg567 behind the house with just a bungee cord around it, the wind blew so hard this week it blew the cam off right the tree  [mad]  the 12v sla battery was like a anchor an dropped straight down. It hit the ground hard enough to knock the m12 lens holder & lens off the camera. Good thing I know how to fix it.
Same!
