I think I've caught just about all the region's megafauna (including the two-legged and wheeled kinds -- the last pic is me) except for deer in 3 weeks' time.  Unit 360.

Yeah.  I thought about reporting it, but I always scour the area for prints and I didn't even notice the tire tracks (they crossed the cam and went back to the road within about 2 minutes so I think they were just exploring a little), so no harm done I guess.  Plus bringing the family out and the little girl's helmet is just so endearing...

That's funny. I was camped out during my archery elk hunt one mile from that family on the quad. I had my camp on rd. 216 off of 1400 (Oak creek rd.)

Nope.  Think you recognize it?  :chuckle:

I spotted a similar-sized bear that I think was the same one, but it was from about 800 yds and in the shade so I didn't pick up on any distinctive marks, and he gave me the slip.

All of the animals are going to the right, but you are walking to the left.  Maybe you need to change your hunting tactics.

Haha!  I have most of these animals going both directions (except the cougar and the coyote).  I didn't even realize I had posted all of them heading the same direction :).

Forgot to mention I have a very blurry photo of a bobcat here as well.

It's official! With the deer, I have all of the resident megafauna at one location  :IBCOOL:  (This is the same location; I just accidentally aimed it a little left of my usual target this time). 

Also, I WILL get that bear...  The person is me, for size reference.  I'm 6'2" 215lb.

Picked up my camera this evening; I'll put in a new set of batteries and pick a different spot for the winter, but this one's going to be hard to beat and may become a permanent cam location. 

Note the time stamps between the running cow and the cat. 

Also, I counted EIGHT different bucks in the 13 day soak, but a lot of the photos were blurry / not worth posting.

I'll be calling in coyotes and hopefully a cat up in you know where as soon as the snow flies if you want to tag along. I got two kitties on my cam up there between the first of November and last Thursday.

The cam is about 12 miles from Naches, as the crow flies.  You guys really think BT would come that far east?

A few years ago (either Spring or Fall, can't remember for sure) I ran into a big herd of deer about 6 miles west of Naches, all of which tails just like this one.  Looked more blacktail than mule to me.
