Not what you want to see on the trail cameras

I missed seeing what was happening in the woods so I decided to put a couple of cameras back out to see what was roaming around.

I am not a fan of this.  I have had pictures of this coyote for a while now and he (I assume it’s a he) is always solo.  He’s healthy and makes his rounds in the same area that we do during the season.  And I assume that he is the coyote that I saw while I was sitting in my stand last fall.

Coyotes are a part of the woods and I get that but what I don’t want to find are dead deer. This is the first time that I have had pictures of the two animals so close together (timewise and location-wise)

Usually, I will get deer on the cameras, then he shows up and it takes 2-3 days before the deer return. We have not had a lot of snow so the deer have not yarded up yet. Maybe that will help keep them safe for the time being.

Let’s see how the winter unfolds…

Moose Crossing

Dad and I were making our normal trip to check the trail cameras.  We pulled out of the driveway and drove 1/2 mile up the road.  I was looking for the snowshoe hares since they have a tendency of playing in traffic when Dad slowed the car down, moose! Maine...
