One week in a city park
« on: January 08, 2018, 07:53:48 PM »
I left my cam on a trail in a north Tacoma park and captured 4 different deer, a doe, a spike, a 2x2 and 4x4 with eye guards, as well as an owl, a raccoon and a squirrel.

Biggest blacktail buck I've ever seen was standing on the train tracks down in Ruston. Looked like a dang mule deer.

There is wildlife real close to inhabited areas, more then most people think.
It's surprising your cam was set up in a park with no problem, put it way out in the wilderness and some one will see it and take it.

Thanks for posting the pics.

The camera was on a hillside where not too many people walk their dogs.  When I went to pick it up with my wife and daughter I told them to try to spot the camera and they both walked right by it.
