Trail camera mounting options?

Looking for options from people on how they mount their cams. I will be mounting the raw lock box. That being said, my options are some type of strap device.

I know straps are visible..I want the least I'm thinking something like a thin bungee cord. Those only come in certain lengths though so that limits tree size. Is it possible to make your own with stretchy parachute cord? Also thought of the tarp type bungee with the ball on the end, but unsure if you can disassemble and reassemble. Wire would be super thin but..Wire I really don't want to get into if I can help it. Welcome to any and all suggestions!

I was looking into this also.Went to pull cameras and first thing I could see were those black straps from a long way off.Have one with brown straps that is less visible.Will be watching this thread for ideas.

I use black cable ties sometimes green. they work great except on big lumber. Wire is also good choice.

I use brown boot strings. Blend in good with most trees and hardly noticeable. Also lets me chose what size tree for the best spot on the trail.

Here is one idea....snip to size....little more rigid. I was thinking of making my own bungee, but 25ft for this price and ease of use may make this good....still looking for ideas for sure.
