Almost a nice coyote picture

I normally keep the ferns cut off short and let a few grow just to make a better picture. Everything has worked fine with deer, elk and turkeys, but with all the rain the ferns grow faster between checkings and blocked the yotes head a little.

This is the first predator on the trail and I had the cam close and set just right for a good photo. Hope this doesn't happen if a bobcat passes this way.

I sympathize. I had the same thing happen down here recently when some weeds shot up and blocked the view a bit.

The sad part is you can wait months on end and then a small fern will mess up the picture.

I remember one time I sent a game camera picture into a pro website contest and they would not accept it because anyone can set a camera in the woods and get a good picture of an animal. What a joke, if they knew how hard it was to get these pictures they would understand. I never use feeders or bait so it makes it difficult to get certain animals.

But I love the challenge.

Ive been trying for a few years with two cameras to get a lion photo east and south of puget sound. Checked a new set the other day and I finally got it, but it was raining, making it blurry, and there is a branch in its face. Justin

Way to go Justin, not easy to get a big cat photo. You have some nice country in that area, keep up the great work.
