Camera-trap-palooza!

I have had multiple cameras set up at the Finger Lakes Community College East Hill Campus in Naples NY for months now. I use primarily Cuddebacks (Attack IR and Capture Flash), but also have a Moultre Game Spy (Flash). There's no reason other than personal enjoyment for having the cameras out and about. Hunting and trapping are not allowed there, and I'm not doing any kind of research. Due to the craziness of my semester ending and the holidays, I had not checked the cameras in weeks. It was like Christmas came again when I finally checked them on New Years Eve. The following are the best of what I trapped!

 Location #1 - Eastern gray squirrel- color variation: black

 Location #1 - Eastern cottontail

 Location #2 - Red fox

Location #2 - Eastern cottontail

Location #2 - Family of white-tailed deer

 Location #3 - Red fox in motion

Location #3 - White-tailed deer

Location #3 - A curious WTD. She knows something is there...just not positive what it is!

Location #4 - WTD

Location #4 - WTD

Location #4 - WTD

Location #4 - WTD

Location #4 - WTD...and my camera batteries began to die.

Location #5 - Eastern cottontail

And THAT is the best I got for this round. I just received 5 Cuddeback Attack IRs and I'm raring to get them out in the field. Until next time!

  2. Thank you! Right now I'm craving a gray fox but not sure how to bait for them, or where to set my cameras. Any advice?
