    A lot of hunters hate all predators -- can't stand the competition I guess, or think deer and turkeys and ... were put on earth only for them to kill. Everywhere I've been a lot of folks seem to be terrified of fishers even though few people have ever seen a live one -- those folks act like fishers are the size of a great dane and regularly prey on humans.

    Stills and a video of fishers (not fisher cat!) -- https://forestandfield.blogspot.com/2020/01/fisher.html
  3. Unfortunately, the interest in homebrews seems to have plummeted in the last couple of years. I'll have to admit my interest in homebrews is rapidly evaporating. Folks aren't even posting many photos any more.

    Merry Christmas

    Hope you all had a very Merry Christmas, that Santa brought you everything you wanted and you didn't eat too much turkey.
  5. 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
  6. 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.
  15. 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.
