Default Camera stand

I needed a way of mounting cameras in my bean fields that would be easy to set up and move. My beans are 5-6 feet tall so a t-post is a little short and a pain to move. This is what I came up with. The camera is 6' high and angle is adjustable. BTW, hogs are not an issue.

That looks pretty good. I'd fill those bottom pipes with sand
Nice cart too

Thought about sand or water, but will probably just drill a couple of holes and bend some wire stakes. It's pretty steady on the small cams, but the old, big reconyx is a little much for it

looks great but how the heck do you get pictures of deer if the beans are 5-6ft tall?

That's pretty smart. Only thing I see that may be an issue is the wind. Might get a ton of blank photos if it's sways easy. But I'll bet with a schedule 80 pvc it would be golden. If wind is not an issue then it's perfect.

Well the beans WERE 6' tall. As they graze them down, they leave random patches and stalks which makes it hard to get distant deer. In a few weeks it may not be a problem

In the photo is a 5' tall cage exclosure. This portion is heavily grazed.



This was a few weeks ago with camera placed in small grazed portion. It shows the wall of beans I'm trying to get above

If you zoom I. on the cage, you can see the top of the wire. These beans look like they would be close to 7' without the deer!
