Rewarding day for trail camera photos

The weather was nice and warm with the sun peeking through the clouds for the beginning of a 4 mile hike to the cameras. Half way to the first camera I knew I was on a roll because not once had I tripped and fallen or had a limb poke me in the eye. It would surely not last, after I saw the pocupine photo I had been waiting a week for it was down hill the rest of the day.

Too close for the Porcupine, so I moved the camera back about 2 feet.

Then off to the beaver dam camera and a nice picture of half of a Blue Heron. Well done cliff.

A great photo of me walking up on the beaver tree camera. That's a keeper.

And to top off the entire day, I got home and had a tick trying to eat me alive. Now I'm being treated for lymes disease and an infection from the tick bite.

You're an honest man, Cliff, and the readers need to know that camera trappin' ain't no cake walk.

We know the prize shots are just a few more trips to and from those sets.

I know the feeling oh so well…

Must be related to the "camera trapper's blues" (poem/song) I’ve been hearing about lately.

M...need I say more, sorry about your brother and the lymes, it can get bad, but this tick sure let me know it was there very soon after I got home. Burned like crazy and wa a circle of red around a brown center, been there before.

Sorry about the long delay in answering some posts, but I had to finally get the old place ready to sell and now I have only one place to keep up.

Cliff I can feel your frustration. I too had a trail camera set up, and went to check it, found 6 trips of the same scene, and nothing, nada, nil, and any of them. Once a branch changed the focus point, and two other times the battery was DOA. Still working though. Did get deer and a flock of turkey, one coon, and a ground bird of some sort. Thanks for the trail pics.
