Trailcam pros and cons Part II

I bought a new one for our wedding anniversary. It's been interesting to compare using your own footage. My first Moultrie was my favourite. The second wasn't as good. The Bushnell (#3), my anniversary present, managed to capture a bat, however. You can tell which camera it is by the logo they cleverly pop into the corner of the image. That was really exciting!

First the fox, then Butch raccoon, Butch comes back for a selfie, bright eyes in the dark. I think it's the big Momma, rather than our 4 released rescues. Then the buck in the fog. Finally, coyote across the meadow.

Two deer, a crow, one coyote, lots of rain.

Sometimes it is just best to be vigilant. These four bucks wandered across our front yard after our dinner. They are active more in the night than day. My hostas will tell you!

Looks like fun to see what's going on.

Which all goes to prove that there's a lot going on when we sleep.

Like you, I recently bought a Bushnell camera. It doesn't always trigger though, as I walk in front of it as a test. Still, one never knows what surprises can be revealed. Of course, a big factor is location, location, location!

You do get a lot of wildlife around, especially in the night.

I've been using my trail cam to track night woodrat activity. Then I know when to set my trap for catch and release. They are such pesky little guys. They chew off plants at the base and leave them to dry before hauling them to their caches. They don't discriminate, and go after anything living large or small. With a whole forest at their disposal you would think they wouldn't need my garden plants. - Margy
