This is all very interesting. I am just starting my cam trap adventure in the desert so I literally have no trees and only occasional bushes. I was thinking of using a concrete spike but even in the sand it may be difficult. Guess I need to keep thinking about it.

Here is what I use for sand. Two 2" wide x 1/8" thick pieces of flat steel welded together and a 1/2" or 3/4" or 1" pipe coupling welded to the center. Screw the desired length of pipe to the coupling and bury in the sand.

The holes in the flat steel are for mounting on rocks or large trees. The 1/8" steel is easy to bend to conform to the rock or tree. For rocks I use 1/4" concrete lags and a cordless hammer drill.

I like RAM accessories so to the end of the pipe I use one of these:

I've tried making my own stands over the years but they were bulky and difficult to pack in. Most of my setups are at least 4 miles from my vehicle in difficult terrain. I now have a solution that is easy to pack, very flexible in use, lightweight, and works 100% of the time. I don't have to sell much footage to pay for stands for all of my cameras.




And what is that?

I made this mount up this summer, plan on using it this winter, to get down low at bobcat level.

Yes, thanks for the link....... that's pretty similar to what I made, only mine is out of wood. Really looking forward to getting this mount out in the field, I have some great spots that I think will produce.
