I've been posting my progress. It has been varied.
Justin advised that the camera should be facing north, so as not to get backlit photos. That helped.
Of course, if you bait your trail cam with deer food, what will you get? Deer. I threw down some cracked corn, hoping for rabbit. I got an ear. The camera was pointed at the food, but the wiley rabbit (not wiley coyote) skipped along beside the camera. You can just see the ears above '17!'
Justin put down a turkey neck at Christmas and got a fisher on his trailcam. That fisher worked the snow at 2:00 a.m. until it uncovered the buried neck.
I've switched from video, which takes a lot of battery energy, to photos. My goal is simply to document the wildlife that I do not often see, like the coyote.

Thought it'd give it a try, though!
