My 2012 Trail Cam Pics - Last Batch (9-26-2012)

Postby derekp1999 » Sun Jun 24, 2012 10:12 pm

Here's my first batch of trail cam pics... cams were set up for 3 weeks.
Lots of young bucks and several different bulls... I can confirm at least 5 different bulls from all the pictures I got (which is very exciting to see for us since most of the previous elk herd up there was traded away for some turkeys 15 years ago). Lots of little bucks with a couple "better" ones mixed in.
This is "Camera #2" set up ~50 yards uphill from a spring:

And this is "Camera #1" set up about 500 yards from "Camera #2" and at the top of the bowl I hunted last September during the muzzleloader hunt. I had a slight malfunction with this camera... it took a series of 3 pictures every 10 seconds & filled the memory card in 2 days (I love false triggers). I "fixed" it and have left it up there for another try.

I'm always a fan of cam pics, thanks for sharing. I hope to set up the rest of mine later this week for the summer.

That's funny about the false triggers..... I have 8gig cards in mine and if it's windy in a location, I'll have around 6,000 pics in a couple weeks, kills the batts too ](*,) I have my cams set at bursts of 3 every 30 sec. I thought my mouse was going to brake after clicking though all them pics :))

Re: My 2012 Trail Cam Pics - Round 2

Postby derekp1999 » Fri Jul 20, 2012 9:02 pm

Here's my next batch. My first camera malfunctioned again taking 3 pics every 10 seconds regardless. So, I got 1300 pictures over the course of 4 hours and the only "wildlife" was me when did the final set up & walked away. This camera was also screwed with by somebody & unfortunately my SD card was already full when it happened. The settings were changed from 3 still pictures every 10 seconds to 60 seconds of video every 60 minutes. So I moved it and put new batteries in it... if it malfunctions for the third time I'll bring it all the way down and check it out. Plus I'll be looking at investing in security boxes & locks, this is the second time in as many summers that I know someone has messed with them... even on private property nothing is safe I guess.
My heart sank when I got to my second camera and it was facing a completely different direction & I thought maybe the same guy had found this one. But that wasn't the case... I had heard that elk were curious creatures, and sure enough on two separate occasions a cow took it upon herself to move my camera around. The last cow to mess with it actually licked it or touched her nose to it and got the camera lens dirty (I didn't know that it was dirty until I was off the mountain so my next batch of pics from that camera will be all blurry).
Anyway, NO DEER at all from this round. Perhaps it's just been so warm that it's hard for the IR sensor to detect since the ambient temperature is so close to body temp, or maybe the elk are in there so much that the deer have decided to stay away.
Enjoy.
This was the first cow that moved the camera (she moved it a full 45 degrees)... I pulled my first batch of pictures June 23rd, notice the date.

This is a crazy looking spike... my wife says I should shoot this one because he looks silly (I wonder what she means by that?).

And here's where another (or maybe the same) cow decides to dirty my camera lens.

Plus here's a little buck that I bumped twice of the creek bottom when I crossed to head into the bowl after my cameras. I bumped him first on the way in & he startled me a bit, but as I climbed into the bowl I watched him circle back behind me and bed back down... so on the way out I got him again & was ready with my camera:

I think pics 4 and 5 are the same bull... but I can still confirm at least 5 different bulls in the area.

Those are some great shots. I have been wanting to get into putting some trail cameras out, but I am having a hard time deciding what ones are going to be the best. It looks like the ones you have shoot a good picture at night. Thanks for posting.
