Checking Cameras

Spent a couple of days wandering around the rainforest near Ketchikan checking and moving cameras.

Set a camera here. A variety of critters should show up, including the usual deer and black bear; plus otters, mink, beaver and more.

Security boxes with twisty ties help to prevent bears from damaging cameras. Cutting a small notch for the camera to sit in and packing the box with moss, leaves, or whatever is handy makes cameras hard for animals to move.

The gravel bar in the background is a popular place for animals to cross this creek. There is a good deal of traffic along this bank, so this setup should get a lot of action.

Set another camera here; this should be a good location, especially in the late summer and early fall when the creek is full of salmon.
