  1. Videos (some from a homebrewed Olympus VG-140 and some from a Browning Strike Force) -- https://forestandfield.blogspot.com/2019/10/the-bear-wallow-2019.html
  2. Big logs here in northcentral Pennsylvania aren't very big compared to those in some forests, but they'll do -- https://forestandfield.blogspot.com/201 ... g-log.html

    The Running Log

    Those are from a Browning Strike Force, not the best of my commercial cameras but just the one I happened to put there. The Strike Force does really well at night, but the daytime videos, especially in low light, aren't as good as my Browning Recon Force or Special Ops or my homebrewed video cameras using Olympus VG-140s or my homebrewed Flip HD (the homebrews were built using Ralph's boards).

    A few pics - w/comm cams

    You got a nice mix of critters. That was quite a bargain you got, but those cameras sure have a slow shutter speed.

    From the Beaver Pond

    The camera trap went back at the beaver pond; some of the results -- https://forestandfield.blogspot.com/2019/07/from-beaver-pond.html

    Li'l Foxes

    Young red fox at a den beneath a cabin's deck -- https://forestandfield.blogspot.com/2019/05/lil-foxes.html It was really tempting to put a camera trap there. But, having lost a camera last winter, I'm not about to donate a camera to the lowlife types who frequently break into isolated cabins.

    Winter photos from 2019

    Nice photos from two good cameras.
  11. Somebody's going to get a good deal. Are you switching to commercial cameras or quitting camera trapping altogether? After 25 0r 26 builds and another 10 or 12 hacks, I think I've done my last build; I've really enjoyed homebrews and will be using them for years but the quality of my commercial cameras' (I've now got ten) photos and videos and their smaller size makes me think any new cameras will probably be Browning, Bushnell or Coverts.

    Lithium-ion batteries

    I use nothing but NMH AA rechargables for my cameras, and rechargables for the boards (most of which run on AAAs). the only exception is for a couple of boards that run on 9-volts, for those I use lithiums in the winter. My rechargables are either 2400 MAHs or more AA Powerex (Imedion), Amazon basics (apparently made in the same factory) and a few old Energizer which are nearing the end of their useful lives -- after more than six years and many, many recharges they're beginning to not hold a charge long enough. The AAAs are Powerex, Energizer, Amazon or Rayovac and I can't see any difference between those four brands.

    De bugging

    Some of our woodpeckers do the same thing.

    First attempt at YouTube

    Nice looking animal. I agree, you would be better off using Vimeo where you can upload up to 5 gb at no charge.
