    Nervous

    I have my 3 month check up and dual contrast scan coming up in a couple weeks and it is weighin on me. I know some guys and gals have gone thru a cancer ordeal here and they know the turmoil this dreaded disease brings to the table. I dont talk much about it and for some weeks now have been having recurring pain in my side again. Its not even 1/100th of what I felt prior to the original diagnosis but its enough for it to bring back the memory of all that transpired. I have not said a word to my wife yet because I dont want to jump the gun so to speak. She had a real tough time during the 18 months of me going from a normal, active, working 240lb guy to a lifeless, pail gray, frail 150 guy bed ridden. Not askin for advice, just kinda venting I guess. This crap is on my mind 24/7 and having been pretty much cut in half am reminded every minute of not only what it has done to me physically but how it effected my wife, sister and friends. I try to stay mentally positive about it. I actually learned a little self hypnosis trick years and years ago, posting little sticky notes in well travelled areas that you conscientiously dont see but see sub contiously so I keep little notes everywhere for myself as a reminder to keep positive. Anyway, if any of you guys/gals have experience in how you deal with these type of things, id love to hear about it with whatever you want to say. I Hope everyone is having a great day and an awesome holiday season.. 😊

    Yeah , maybe if we come up with something really cool people will come back to pep this place up again.. I'll keep doin it, all I have is time on my hands so Im gonna just start workin out ideas and see what I come up with...lol That would be cool if we were all closer... would be some fun brain stormin sessions thats for sure....lol no worries brother, helping me is seeing others posting back with replies, that makes the time spent messing with this stuff worthwhile especially if we come up with something that works for everyone to try out.. It would be fun hanging out, like mentioned above, it could bring some whopper ideas to the table with a good group all brain stormin together and learning things at the same time..,,,

    What a shame l was hoping for a hack description as l already looked on ebay and there were a few for sale under $20.

    3 PIR Circuit

    I think that is a great idea, using the side pir's to start up the cam and then when the subject is framed the middle pir takes over.

    3 PIR Circuit

    So, now that finding the commercial pir setup wont work for how I need I'm just going to draw up my own circuit for a 1, 2 or 3 pir setup and set it up to plug into my own control board so it will have the option of choosing to use a single pir for straight ahead standard build or use 2 (one on left and one on right) for faster startup of a slow cam or dual cam or use all three, the left and right for fast cam on and the forward one can fire the shutter.... lots of possibilities..

    Well, I picked one up and tore into it. Thought I had it, in fact I dock'd the whole hack but somehow had forgot to double check the shutter hack before re-assembly. After testing it, I was thoroughly confused. The power button was simple, thought the shutter button was simple too but, it has some sort of 2 stage shutter button. so just touching the shutter + to shutter neg did not fire the cam, it basically readied the shutter button. I tried attaching a wire to each of the other 3 corners of the tactile button but it still did the same thing, no pic. I started to check traces around the switch with my probe and followed one to the other end where there was a test pad and hit it with my probe and boom, blew the cam up, it popped big time and actually blew a chip off the back panel. Not exactly sure what that pad was for but it definitely is not one you want to probe.... 😞 So off to the trash it went. As soon as I get the chance to pick another one up I will and then will try it again. There must be something in the shutter button or some connection under it that controls the final push for shuttering a pic but it looks like dis-assembling that portion of the switch board may be very difficult or possibly impossible, I will try again though, It takes great day pics and the night pics with the flash seemed really good along with 2 AA batts for power and standard sd card, it would make a nice trail cam if I can figure it out.

    Nice pics. That bobcat, after comparing the side by side images from the july pic and the october pic, that is definitely the same bobcat without a doubt based on the markings on its legs.. what are the odds of that same cat standing in almost the identical spot looking at the cam with the same pose... thats a trip.. edit - lol... was looking at the image again and saw the text written below the image, guess I got glued in on the photo and forgot to read..... πŸ˜‰

    The bobcat's probably a young-of-the-year which would account for its appearance in July, by October its winter coat was coming in so it looks more bulky (just like we do in our winter coats). A fat cat would have difficulty catching prey.

    As always Woddy great pictures and just as important the info you include. That bobcat looks awful thin?
  21. Woody Meristem

    There are ten or twelve subspecies of bobcats in North America, From the literature it appears that Missouri is on the general boundary between two subspecies which probably grade from one to the other. -- but there's some dispute about whether some of those are actually subspecies.

    Surely that is the same Cat. Are cat's here in Missouri sure don't look the same way as yours, are their Eastern Bobcats and Central, etc? and that coon better hang on LOL

    I would not put too much faith in the actual β€œnumber” of P&Y or B&C deer shot in any given state accordi g to the books. My best guess is that maybe 1/4 of the deer shot that qualify for either category actually get officially measured, qualified, and entered into the books. The majority of these deer are shot on well managed private property. And on these properties it usually takes something in the 150” range before anyone in that particular area even cares. And once you have your properties holding these kinds of deer, the last thing most of these people want is their name and county of kill listed for public record. With the internet now it’s just too easy to link up all the information and you flood your area with shiners and poachers and people knocking on every door in the area trying to get in on the action

    I think from memory Wisconsin still holds the record for the most Booners.
