Hiking and Checking Cameras

June 5, 2022

Black bears are efficient predators of young fawns, this poop is evidence of that. According to studies by ADFG bears will eat more than half the fawns in some areas.

Three trail came together to form a funnel where animals climb out of this valley. The trails are covered with deer tracks now but there should be a lot of bear traffic this summer and fall because the creek just out of sight at the bottom of this hill gets a lot of salmon.

A bunch of trails come together to cross this little creek so setting a camera here was a no brainer.

Deer have trampled this little hill to bear ground, it looks like a popular bedding spot but may also be a mineral lick, the camera I set here will reveal what’s going on.
