Thanks MidniteDog for starting a new thread. I've resized the photo shown and appreciate your suggestion to do so.

I use my mobile phone to log in all the time. If I know there are lots of photos I will usually just wait until I get home.

Here's a photo from October last year. This was taken at the number 1 spot.

I love gathering the cards and taking them back to the camp to look at on the laptop. It's exciting knowing what's out there. Having eyes there when we aren't there has shown us who's been eating all that corn!

I will be glad when we can post videos straight to the cubit. In the mean time, you can post your videos on YouTube or another photo hosting place and post a link here.

Here is a link to some of our game cam shots. You can watch them all by clicking on Start Slide Show, or you can click on individual photo and videos to watch just those. 2009 Deer Cam

ps Sometimes I forget to post an image with my post. You can always go back and edit the post and add an image, or change it out if you've posted the wrong image. Sometimes it's hard to tell which one you want by looking at the small thumbnails. It's easy to post the wrong one. I'm so glad we have the option to correct that here. Hurray!

In that photo above are "Mama, Auntie and Bucky Nubbin". We hadn't seen the other 2 for a few months, but on the photos from yesterday's check, I saw them both at the other feeder. I was glad that Bucky Nubbin was still around. I am looking forward to seeing him again this coming season.

When Rick was field dressing the doe (Auntie) he took on Halloween (one of those above) there was this white stringy stuff throughout. When I asked him what it was he said it was the fat. He said he'd never seen so much on any of the other deer he'd taken in the past.

I was really surprised after that comment though at how lean the meat was. I guess I expected "marbling" like I've seen in beef after he said that. Instead cutting the meat was like cutting through butter. Smooth as silk.

We've seen a bobcat. He doesn't show up as good in the single photo as he does in this video. You can see him walking through the area here.

In all my years of hunting, I have only seen 2 bobcats, one on the highway one night, and one while hunting at Ft Hood. had it walk across an opening about 40 yds from me. Sorry no pics *Blush*

Had it not been for that game cam, we wouldn't have known he was there. That was where we'd set up the camera to check out the area for a hunting spot. The photo was taken April 18th, 2009. We also saw several deer in the area, so that became our number one spot.

We didn't see the bobcat again until this video taken on January 10th, 2010. Unfortunately, I had changed out the camera card the week before with one that we'd used in the Canon Video camera and that card had all of our Christmas videos on it. So there was no room for taking any more photos. That was the only thing that was on the camera. You can bet I kicked myself in the butt about that one. Grumbling

BUT, at least I can show it to you here. I was surprised to see him in the daytime. The video shut off towards the end of the taking, but you can clearly see him walking from the dirt road we drive down toward the rail road tracks behind the camera.

Thanks BK, I wish we'd gotten a good still shot of him. He shows up so much better in the day time than in the night video.

Hmmm, they are mostly nocturnal in this area although they do show up at dawn or early evening, better get some big feathers an glue, just a very little glitter on them may help get their attention.
I forgot to answer your earlier question, most sensor's on trail camera's need heat plus movement so fluttering feathers shouldn't trip them, if it does maybe you can put them in the shade.

OK I will try that. I've got the feathers from the banded wood duck Rick shot earlier this year. I was going to save them for a project (yet to be decided just WHAT project) but this sounds like an even better thing to do with them. I'm sure I've got some glitter around here too. I'm glad you mentioned the glitter because I don't remember reading that before.

A squirrel tail would also be effective, anything like that to flutter and catch a cats attention, curiosity get's the best of the kitty every time!

ooooooooooooooooohhhh Great thinking! Dang you're good! You think like a cat! HAHAHAHA

I have a fox tail that my grandson pulled off my purse right after I made it. I'd thought of making a hair ornament out of it, but I think this would be a MUCH better use for it!

I need to check one of my cameras, I have it set up very low to the ground on a turkey path and it's very possible it's buried under a foot or more of snow Grumbling

We mount ours on the trees at about waist level.

Other than getting WHITE photos, does the snow bother your cameras?

We had a problem with one of ours last year because the seal on it wasn't right. Lots of foggy photos and the interior of the thing was very moist. It was one that Moultrie had already replaced because the color wasn't right - everything was way off. Seems they sent a newer model and the seal wasn't as tight as it was on the first one. The digital display went out and we had to send it back to them. They replaced it again.

I know you build your own cameras. Do you do anything special to make sure they are sealed and waterproof?

I have this one hung on a tree about knee high, about level with the turkeys. It's on a creek bottom with a twenty five foot high bank bank about fifteen yards in front of it so it makes a nice funnel areal for the birds an animals.
I use Pelican dry box's for scuba divers and replace the seals with a neoprene seal, I use a lot of marine Goop glue for the lens an sensor then I put them in a sink full of water with a weight to hold it down an look for leaks. I have also taken them in the shower with me but the rest of my family told me that was just wrong *Blush* .
I don't think it will bother the camera but the battery's are dead, I'll have to bring it inside and let it warm up for a day before I open it up.
It's so bad here my neighbor got his F150 4x4 stuck on a snow drift in his driveway yesterday, he hit it hard enough it lifted the front wheels off the ground an there he set, then he got his dads Ford 4x4 tractor stuck getting it out of the barn to pull his truck out. Enough all ready!

I laughed at your testing out the camera in the shower! What better way could you possibly test for moisture!

I hope that things warm up for you guys soon. Heard this morning that the NE is getting MORE snow!!! Hope you all have enough grub in stock that you don't have to get out for a while. This too shall pass!

So much for Global Warming!

It's been snowing everyday for a week now, we've gotten at least a half inch a day and it's still snowing as I look out the window. Yes we have lots of food and water saved but it's just a way of life around here.

I do too, I see some fresh deer track in my field this morning so they're moving around, there are some bare areas where the wind has blown the snow away so they'll find enough to eat, they'll also browse on the tender tips of twigs going to be tough for the turkeys though they'll feed under the hemlocks where there's just a little snow, they are tough birds.

Here's a neat picture I got a couple of years ago, being a bow hunter I've always been interested in how deer react to scents, I've found a trail cam to be a great way to test some different ones. I poured some dollar store vanilla in a mossy spot on a well used deer trail, it made the deer pause long enough for a picture, there actually two fawns in the picture.
