Daily Deercam

  They sure cut it close.  Four coons on cam in one photo.  Too many.

  It's like they know where the trigger plate is.  Trap was still open this afternoon.  May have to go to catfood, the secret weapon.

  Quorum at the other cam.

  Actually SAW some deer today- the big doe with two buck fawns.  They look hale and healthy.

  Pileated Woodpeckers in the bottom along with may Great Blue Herons setting up their rookery.  Noisy down there.

  Too many coons on both cams. 

Update:  Crows all over both cams.  Eventually I'm going to catch one.

You might want to put a few pine limbs along both sides of the trap to cover it and then put a thin trail of corn up to the trap with your big bait pile right on top of the trigger plate. I still think marshmellows are the best bait. They cant seem to get enough of them.

Its one thing to be killed over catfood or corn, but not even I would subject a fellow mammal to death over a marshmallow.
I got standards.
