bear got my camera

Postby lugnut » Tue Oct 09, 2007 5:50 pm

went and checked a camera that is next to the house. i've been getting bear pics all around this area for a year on and off. to make a long story short, i sprayed some intruder buck spray on the tree trunk infront of the camera and left it alone for 3 days. got to it today and the cam was all chewed up.

i figured it would happen sooner or later but i was hoping that it wouldn't be my p41 cam that got it :bag: the camera still works but i'll have to put more glass and another FE in the case along with another flash gasket. it could have been far worse :cheers:

GTK. that's where he tried to eat my camera. he busted the glass and ripped out the flash enhancer. the liquid nails has some scraches in it but other than that, the camera is fine and so was the board and case. no real big damage but the camera is out of commission until i can get some parts to fix it

Wow... I'm pretty sure that bear would have to "relocate" if I were to see it on my place. :W: :W: I much prefer being the top of the food chain, where I hunt.
