Hikers and Hunters vs trail cameras
I leave my trail cameras out all year on land open to the public and so far the hikers and hunters have been kind to my cameras. Sometimes even having some fun with them. This turkey hunter saw the flash as he walked past, but the camera was very low with a 10 second delay.
He stopped and looked around to find where the flash came from but didn't look down at the bottom af an alder tree where the camera was hidden in some moss. Just started to walk away and the flash got him again.
This time he turned and waited longer to find the camera when the flash went off.
Kind of like candid camera in the woods and he did take a few moments to trigger the camera with a thumbs up.
The camera was aimed low for animals crossing between the river and a small creek.
