    Year 'fore last, my uncle had me buy two $600 top of the line game cameras, to try and catch some relatives stealing from him. I showed him how to use them, and said I'd help him hide them on the weekend... he couldn't wait, didn't tell me, and installed them. One was stole the first night. Arrggh! He placed the next one so far away it only captured the tree limbs moving back and forth.

    Decoy cameras I think would be the ticket to catching the thief... but I don't have one to loan him.
