Default Other Uses for Game Cam

I thought I would start with a thread about uses for Game Cams. Of course they take great photos in the woods that help us monitor game animals, but I was wondering what other things you may use your cam for. I use mine to watch the house while I am at work. But I am curious as to what else people use them for.

My mother in law lives on a sharp curve. The drunk teens around here like to miss the curve and drive through her yard. So I have the trail cam set on a tree in her front yard to see if I can get a liscense number. I must say your pics are much better.

Around Christmas time some teenagers (I guess) get together and go around the town and put the lighted deer in positions that they should not be in. So we put up a cam and they have not come back since.

If I can manage another deer this year, I want to put the trail cam over the gut pile. the gut pile from my early season buck was totally gone in less than 24 hours. I thought it would be neat to see all that visited the kill site and who managed the lions share. I imagine it would be a pretty busy camera.

My father-in-law had a good idea the other day that I think I'm going to try after the first of the year. He said to take an old chicken (store bought) and tie a string around it and hang it down from a branch on a tree about 4 feet off the ground. Then put a trail cam next to it. We have alot of bobcats here in MO but I've yet to catch one on trail cam. I see their tracks everywhere, but no pics yet. Maybe this idea will get me some pics!

My boss kept loosing beer from the fridge in the garage. No one would fess up so he put his game cam across from it on the wall. He got good pics of his wife steeling his beer while he was at work.
