Red squirrel taking a leap !
I have been camera trapping a new area and need to learn the country side. Bushwhacking five miles this morning setting out trail cameras is always a good way to start the day I find it rewarding and challenging to learn new spots, I started hiking this location in October. Its a big piece of woods and will take some time to figure out. So far a cow moose and bobcat have tripped the motion sensors on the TC's. Both captures were at night , its a start.
The effort this morning was to beat the snow storm coming later today. I randomly set out trail cameras on this hike. It would be neat to get a pic of a bull before it drops it's antlers. The cameras are in DEEP and may need to wail till spring t retrieve.
The pic above is a bobcat about to cross a beaver dam. This was a good find. Any animal that wants to cross the dam must step into ac constrained spot with a TC mounted watching.
