I placed my new trail cam at a pond near my house about a month ago. In the first few days I got a few daytime shots of raccoons. I let it sit for the past month and retrieved it today. I was happy to see 140 shots fired off and hoped there would be a few deer in there.
What it turned out to be was a whole bunch of shots of Canada geese roaming through the semi-flooded area, and a few ghostly nighttime shots of the raccoons. I've proven what I wanted to prove, that the camera works pretty well, and I'll deploy it in the Black Hills ASAP. Unfortunately that probably won't be until July. Once again, you'll have to use your imagination and pretend that these geese are elk or mountain lions. Click on the image for a larger version.
