    Default bear proof

    using scrape plywood cut the 6 pieces needed to make a box big enough to put the camera in. Use a hole saw or jig saw to cut a hole in the plywood for the lens to look thru.
    take the pieces of plywood and lay them flat on the ground. then run 4 inch long grabber screws in a 1.5 inch random pattern to that each board looks like a porcupine.
    put the box together using grabbers, and for the door to access the camera put a couple of hinges and a small clasp to hold the door closed.
    go to a junk car lot and get a seat belt out of a car.
    attach that to the box so you can secure it to any size tree.
    The bear will not be able to hold on to the porcupine box without alot of discomfort.
    Not sure if he will mess with the seat belt around the tree, so you may need to figure out someway to make the release just as porcupiney.
    just an idea..

    And not a bad one
    I intend to try & build something using a 30 caliber ammo can because I have a couple but haven't started the project yet.

    the box they make is pretty good. We use on the job all the time, brownies play with it, but has never broke or damaged camera.

    Default Rebar Cage

    I made this out of some scrap rebar I had laying around. No attacks on the camera last year so who knows if it works.

    I heard that a electrical pannel box works well. The one for my air conditioner looks to be a perfect size and it already set up to lock

    Just cut the required holes for the flash etc., drill a couple of holes in the back to screw it into the tree and it should be ready to go.

    I just bought two trail cams and that is what I am going to try.
