Why did I wait so long to buy a Game Camera? I can’t imagine. If you’re not familiar with them, a Game Camera or Trail Camera is a digital camera with a motion sensor. It uses infrared illumination at night (so there’s no flash to startle the game). Some cameras shoot stills, some shoot video, some both. Well-equipped cameras can be set up to do either, or select the length of video recording after a trigger event.
My Trail Camera is made by Wild Game Innovations, and I paid $40 US for it. (Claimed to be $69 US originally). I set it up on November eighteenth, and it has taken about 150 images since. Without further ado, here are the highlights. Click any image to start full-sized carousel.
All the neighbors cats, and a dog.
Deer and Deer Hunters
And a variety of critters.
Certainly the bobcat is the high mark so far, and the coyote ranks up there, too. There are black bears in the woods in and around Engleville, and that will be the “holy grail” goal. Hope you enjoy these highlights.
Take care and keep in touch,
