Trail Camera Update

IMAG0859Now that the den cam and the beaver cam have been set for a couple weeks, I thought I’d give an update on the action. The den cam had ups and downs. The downs are it was definitely a raccoon hangout, and I got about 5,000 pictures of them headed to and from the den, and the tree I used to hold the camera was small enough I ended up with quite a few wind pictures (the kind where if you scroll through them, you feel like you are moving since the tree was swaying in the wind). The ups are I got a couple decent pictures of deer, turkeys, and a fox. Due to the wind triggers and the raccoon usage, the den cam has been relocated to a spot I have high hopes for that is out of my usual realm of targeted animals. You’ll have to keep checking back for updates to this one.

That's a big beaver...

That’s a big beaver…

The beaver cam isn’t giving too many pictures, but I have gotten a variety of animals, from raccoons, to house cats, squirrels, deer, opossum, turkeys, and finally what I would consider a giant beaver. I’ve only got the beaver triggering the camera once, but since I haven’t found a better place for this camera, it remains on oversized rodent patrol.

Turkey season has started now, so there will probably end up being a camera or two devoted to turkey pictures, but I’m still chasing a couple other unique pictures looking for the elusive postcard worthy catch.
