Most of the cameras include a date and time stamp so they could make
great evidence in prosecuting the vandals or trespassers. One of the best parts about using motion activated cameras is there
are models available with prices starting at less than $100 for
simple models up to $700 dollars for the top of the line digital
models. Once purchased you can have them up and
taking pictures within minutes.
Here are some Trail
Tips for placing the cameras:
In my opinion it is probably better to place the camera on the trail
leading to the cave with the flash turned off. The I think the trail
is better than the entrance is that many cavers often relax at the
entrance to caves before and/or after caving. So you could waste a
lot of film on one group of cavers.
Vandals often do there dirty work at the entrances to caves so
placing it at the entrance may catch them in action. However, while
they are hanging around reeking havoc they may spot the camera.
