I've never had one stolen but I am pretty careful about where I hang them. One big advantage I like about the little Bushnell is they are easy to hide and easy to hang from an overhead position making them even harder to spot. I've got locking bear boxes for the Cuddebacks that would make them a little bit of trouble to steal but the best security is not having the cam seen. Bears do love to chew on cameras so if your in bear country and hanging one down where they can get at them they will. They can bust a camera open and ruin it in a hurry. I've never had a bear climb for the Bushnell so I think it has to do with them being at ear level and the bears hearing the camera because they almost always stick their nose in a cam at ground level.
