You have to be a little more creative with your setups in bear country. those buggers just can't leave them on the tree once they find them.[down]

What's the story? I have pics of bears on my camera all the time and they don't try to eat it...

Do you handle your camera with greasy hands after you ate Kentucky Fried Chicken?

Yup, always handle food then my cams, I smeared honey all over this one when I put it out [drinking]

It's cool, This is the first time I had a cam messed with from a bear. I had 2 damaged from people this year and one stolen last year. But this is a first. I have way to many bears in the woods here. Its becoming a real PITA now. I wish there would be a hunt.

Seriously, I'm in Oak Ridge, Bear Country and(knock wood)I don't have any problems with cameras. Try spraying the damned thing down with one of the scent eliminating enzymes that we spray on our clothes.
Sounds like a pretty expensive year so far.

I've had it both ways sometimes they rip it off the tree sometimes they leave it alone. I think the cubs tend to bother the camera more, probably out of curiosity.

I think Stuttering Jon should run a tv ad and blame Chis Christie for damaging your camera.

I made a box for my other cam. That one didnt get touched. This was a cheap Wildview that I set up over a scrape to see what was hitting it. Unfortunately I didnt get any pics of a deer on the scrape because of the bear. But I am happy to say that something is still hitting that scrape [up]
