Hunting Deer and Checking Cameras

At the end of a long day of wandering the woods and muskegs looking for deer and checking trailcams I filled 1 of my 4 deer tags on a young buck.

Put a camera back on this spot, it was pretty good during last years rut

Left a trailcam overlooking the gut pile, hopefully a bear will show up instead of just a mob of ravens and eagles.


Checking Cameras 8/1/22

Here are the the cameras I checked, I’ll be posting the highlights from them soon after I finish sorting them.

This is the second time I’ve checked this camera, it overlooks a funnel where several trails combine to form 1 that crosses this small ravine.

This camera watches a skunk cabbage patch.

This was the first check of this camera, I set it to watch a trail between a creek and a big muskeg. Lots of action here but the lighting isn’t real good, I may switch it to video.

This is a spot I’ve used for a few years, it watches a transition area between some big timber and open muskeg, and is full of deer and bear food.

This camera has been watching a sandbar on a salmon stream, it was real popular with deer but black bear are taking over now that the salmon are starting to show up. You can see more from this camera in the playlist on my youtube channel titled “Sandbar”.

This camera also watches a salmon stream, the fish will show up in big numbers at the end of the month, you can see last years run by checking out the playlist titled “A Small Salmon Stream” on my youtube channel. I move the camera to the other side of the creek to hopefully get better shots of the bears catching the fish.
