    I like to have my trail cameras a little elevated (about 6’ or higher) and angled slightly downward. I find this spooks the deer the least amount versus eye level of the deer. Also, using straps at this height makes the downward angle a little cumbersome. I have bought commercial mounts before costing about $12.

    Well, I copied some of the guys on here that make homemade “Stic-n-pics” to make my creation (I attached his pic as well). My mount costs less than $3 at Lowes. With these you also don’t have to fumble with the straps. Simply screw the lag bolt into a tree, attach the camera and then make sure everything is tight. Viola!

    All my materials are stainless steel. Each mount requires:

    1 - 1/4 x 20 x 1” Bolt
    1 - 1/4 x 20 x 2” Eye Bolt
    1 - 5/16 x 4” Lag Bolt
    2 - 1/4 x 20 Wing Nuts
    3 - 1/4 Washers

    Those look good. I'll have to keep that idea in the back of my mind for the future.
