Finally back to the woods
After a long hiatus with my health, I am finally back to setting out cameras. The new knee is working well but the body is out of top physical condition, too much rest. I was lucky enough to find an Otter den that looked to be freshly used and in a tough place for a camera, but did set one up next to the river aimed at the den opening. Sometimes the otter will hold up for a night or two but not stay for long during their travels, so my fingers are crossed.
It felt great getting back to more hiking along the river that has changed quite a bit in the last year and a half since I've been gone. But it looks like there are many more Otter and I even saw two large males swimming down stream as I was setting out a camera over a deer trail.
