    Trail Cams

    I started using trail cams as a way of monitoring predators for our cats, but when we decided not to let them roam free anymore, I kept using the cameras because I found watching the wildlife to be very enjoyable. Here's a few recent shots.

    Sometimes, just a landscape shot is good too. Here is some sparkly snow at my favorite spot. In warmer weather I like to ride up here and just sit a while, and have a beer or two. There's an old cabin fireplace and chimney stack on the right there, which is actually on my neighbor's property. I keep a salt lick here, and leave food scraps and leftovers, as well as cracked corn, and dried feed corn cobs.

    Yes, lots. The date on the bobcat pics is wrong, I forgot to reset it when replacing batteries. Got those images last summer.

    Luckily, we haven't gotten any two legged predators, other than our neighbor trying to take a shortcut home. She said it didn't work out too well, lol. She must not know the way, because I do, And it's not that bad, lol.

    Here's a blurry pic of a bobcat right behind the Cat Shack.

    There is almost no unoccupied land where we are at the beach but we still have foxes and coyotes, leaving me wondering where they live without being seen.

    They are very shy here, and I have never seen one in person.

    OMG! It's so fun to see their natural behavior. I didn't really think about deer fighting.

    I'm going to have to look into a game cam and some corn piles. I see deer on our land quite often, usually around dawn and dusk, and this would be amazing!
