Above in this thread, we were talking about folks stealing trail cameras, I'll tell you this real quick.

I've mentioned about me mounting my cameras, standing on a milk crate, and mount them up just as high as I can reach. Just to get them above eye level and all, out of the way of bears. Well, the other day when I went to check a camera, and I forgot my milk crate.

Long story short, it was a chore to change the SD card, and get the camera closed up again.

But over in the other thread, I said that because of my job, I've trained myself to think like a thief. I sized up my camera, just like I was going to steal, my own camera. The only way that I could have gotten it off of that tree, would have been to cut the strap. Honestly, I think that would have been a chore too.

Standing on one foot, up as high as I could reach, one handed, it would have taken a little effort.

But I was thinking, if a feller would take the lock end of a snare cable, and zip the snare up tight (around the tree), that would take the edge off of a knife blade quick. I guess if a feller really wanted to lock it down tight, you could always slip a ferrule up on the snare end, and crimp it down with pliers. Very few people in the woods carry anything that could cut snare cable. Just something to think about.

Note to self, camera mounted at "lured rock" 3/4/18, new batteries.

I checked the camera on out the mountain, not much action this check. I did get a few pictures of a pair of gray fox, only 3 or 4 deer pictures.



Notice the temperature on that picture, in February.

I hauled a 50# block of salt and stump out to the area where we took two whitetails last season. I put the salt on top of the stump and set up the trail cam. Will keep that going till next season. Should be interesting. Already has action, but can't post pics. Something about the size of pics can't be larger than 2194304, which doesn't make any sense to me. I'll try to post the pics again at a later date.

Frank.

Note to self, checked Wardney's salt lick, 3/10/18. We still have one buck picture.

Notice the size of the salt block, that block has been there for 6 or 8 months.

I had 350 pictures on this camera, I think that was a 3 week check.

We've got this critter sneakin' around in my yard. I've only had deer and a coon caught on this trail cam, but I can't make out what this thing is. I think it's too long legged for a coon. Fox? Yote? Any guesses to help me out?

Thanks, Frank.

Here's some pics (I hope) from the newly created salt lick. Not working it hard yet, but I suspect the activity will heat up later in the spring. (Nope, forget it. Couldn't get it to load. Sure don't understand why I could load the pics above and not these)
