The last videos from the bear wallow for this year -- https://forestandfield.blogspot.com/201 ... allow.html

The security box came back for repair before it goes out again.

Nice video, Woody. The security case that comes with my Browning RF Extremes fits together rather tightly. I've never had a bear open one yet, though they have tried. From here on out I'll use a nut and bolt to lock them. I've been lax about that this year. Our bruins HAVE however turned the camera away from the scene, so I now screw the case to the tree in addition to using the strap. (Bear season is winding down out here -- I think they've moved closer to the apple orchards.)

I really liked the fall colors in some of those shots. Bad day for the security box though.

He sure did not like the cam for some reason. Kept coming back and back. Cool footage at the spot.

I am sure glad we don't have those bears down here. You need a bunch of long, sharp spikes welded oround your security boxes. Did it ruin the camera?

No, the only mark on the camera was a tooth mark on the upper edge of the Fresnel lens. I put a bit of Goop on that just in case the lens had a small crack or hole that I couldn't see. As for the padlock, I don't know if the bear broke it or if I may have failed to lock it -- it's gone, never to be seen again.

A hand seamer (like a very wide pair of pliers) was used to straighten the front of the steel box. The steel box and Python lock undoubtedly saved the camera; I won't put a camera out anywhere there might be a bear without both -- not to mention the less than honest people that may be out in the woods.

Most of my security boxes are made from electrical boxes, but this was a Camlockbox with a padlock holding the front cover on (but it didn't). The bear must have gotten the lock off first and then the box front. Those front covers aren't very easy to remove, but the bear managed to get it off and bent it in the process.
