We saw a setup like that a few years ago up by Mt. Adams.  It was pretty elaborate...figured it was a part of some type of study or something.

You can educate away ignorance, sober up drunkenness, but you can't fix stupid.

Do some googling when you have some time and you will find alot of info and pages dedicated to home built trail cameras.

I have looked around on some, they can get pretty elaborate, but the quality of the pictures can be amazing...and not necessarily any cheaper than buying one.
It is better to be consistently incorrect than inconsistently correct...

My level of sarcasm depends on your level of stupidity...

Sarcasm makes smart people laugh and stupid people mad.

What was it focused on? Trail, wallow, pile of wood? Might be a camera trap used to study critters that are suspected to be in the area. Wolverine, lynx, or wolf depending on how they set up the target.

It was off a game trail coming off a ridge.  The sensor was closed to a tight window
 Didn't take a pic til I was less Than 10 ft. Away

That's probably for a study or a professional photographer.

Well since a member here found this i am assuming public land,Since it is illegal to pound nails into trees on public land this should be turned in to LEO.  :twocents:

That would be my guess on a set up like that. Curious to know more about it.

Fair enough -- but $10 says it's part of a study and they have permission from whichever agency manages the land.  That's some serious $$$$ attached to those trees. 

I laughed out loud at the "not necessarily cheaper" than buying a game cam comment.  Sertainly not cheaper  :chuckle:

Yea and all the things screwed into the trees makes old timber workers like me have a fit.

It is not the small damage the threaded mounts leave in the trees that is the problem.

The evil is if anything is left behind, to be grown over by the tree and some future sawmill blade hits the metal.   Instant dynamiting of the blade, at the least teeth are knocked off.    Sawmill workers have been killed or injured by flying pieces of blades.

At the least, several hundred dollars in loss of the blade, maybe more if it is a big bandmill.   Hundreds of dollars in lost productive time fixing the saw and lots of bucks in manhours.

So do not put spikes or big lags into trees folks.

:yeah:
We hit at least a few bolts or metal pieces a year with our saw mill and it's ugly and a PITA.
