Thought it might be nice to have a thread for a collection of "Trail Cam" wildlife photos. It's not really 'photography' or art, - it's just a machine taking pictures for you.

I can see that photo browsing could easily get disturbed by miles&miles of technical discussion so I've created a new thread just for that:

=========================

Well I just happened to get a couple of good photos yesterday.

A coyote came by in the morning. About noon, my first bear photo! This yearling bear 'cub' walked by. Lots of activity around, we rode motorcycles past the camera 15 minutes before and 15 minutes after. The little bear did not make any tracks and we didn't see any of 'mama bear' either. This is on my road, about 200 yds from the cabin.

TomChum,
Where is your camera mounted?

Neat pix TomChum

We have our camera at the salt lick we made. It also has a view of the driveway so adds some security.

The moose actually strolled through the yard while we were in the shed before meandering down the driveway to the salt lick and get his pic taken.

Bugs,
Is the camera discreetly mounted in the forest or out in the open on a pole/tree? Curious as to how to hide it from (human) tresspassers yet still captue the wildlife activity?

Hi Scott

Ours is in a camo/metal box made for the camera. The metal box is bolted to the tree and then a "python" cable lock is used to lock everything together and to the tree. It is obvious once you see it.

We are planning on setting up another in the yard site. This one will be secreted away so it will be more for security than for taking pictures of animals.

water


i did the same thing down at my camp last week, took a bottom of a plastic 55 gallon drum, cut off till about a 10" high sides and filled it with water for the critters, and they are using it already---it is so dry here in the south.
My water hole for them has dryed up ( dug with backhoe and rain water fills it up) and the creek and spring is a good ways for them to travel.

Currently in a state of resolved acceptance ;-) . If you meant geographically, I'm in central WA, east of the Cascades Mtn range.

Great to see the Trail cam PHOTOS! I see Mtn Lion scat on my road too, I'm hoping my trail camera sees one go by.
