Default how to hide cameras

I want some input on how to keep my cameras safe on public land. I hunt on a military base and can usually put out cameras before they close areas to hunting, then go back and get them when area re opens. But work schedule does not always allow so any suggestions on placement or securement to ensure I get them back, thanks.

Higher the better. Out of sight. I also use a glue to put natural bark or moss on them. Place twigs with leafs on the straps to break the square look.
Like a Gilly suit.
8 to 10 ft up angles to where u want the pics.
I have other ways.

Spray adhesive and moss from Hobby Lobby. Hard to see in plain sight!

I hide mine on banks, in tree roots, logs, and ground level strapped on small trees camouflaged with leaves and sticks. On banks I sometimes cut out a square hole the same size as the camera and insert it into the bank.
I never use straps on large trees. They're to visible. Look for a dark place when available.

Thanks for all the ideas you hope your fellow hunters would just walk by and leave it alone, but things aren't what there were years ago.

Don't use straps at all, you can see straps a 100 yards away. If you have to go around, use wire.
