Turkeys made it though last winter

Was looking pretty bad for turkeys this summer, only had a few photos on deer trails. Things are picking up now as they begin to look for food in the small timber. My turkey photos are mainly random as I don't use any type of bait, but I do know the trails they travel and the type of food they eat in the winter.

River ice and Kayakers

Been too cold for me, batteries don't last long in the cameras and my hands and feet try to freeze while in the woods. Did get a couple of interesting photos out the living room window of kayakers running the rapids in the cold spell and a photo of the river the next morning. Three days of my time were trying to thaw out my water pipe coming out of the well.

Hanging a trail camera using limbs

I always carry an extra trail camera with me as a spare if one quits working or has a problem, but often I find a new location to place the camera. This time I forgot to bring any extra nylon rope to tie it to the tree, so I improvised using some limbs and sticks to secure the camera...I hope.

I wouldn't recommend this type of setup but have used it on several locations without any harm. It is eco friendly.
