I always put a couple of mine on my trapline - I suck at trapping but I'm good at attracting things to look at the traps and get some cool pictures.

 Do you have any pics or better yet video to share, Never thought about using a trail cam on a trap line.

For those of you putting your deer or elk bones out for your trail cams, why not go to the dairy farms or the stock yards over there in Eastern Washington and get some dead calves or a whole cow that died to cut up for real meat for your cameras.

For those of you are successful your gut pile is a good place to set up a camera. There are many visitors to your gut piles.

Gut pile = lots of Ravens neighbor dogs. Couple of cooler pics I got this year.

Look how cleaned up it is in one day.
When I pass, do not let my wife sell the guns for what I told her they cost.

Heh, yeah, I put it on video mode, and I'm expecting to have several hours of crow/raven activity to sift through.

A good reminder (mine's in Bethel unit, so hopefully won't have any wolf activity). 

On that note; can anyone point me to the rules about cameras/bait/etc.?  Is it actually illegal to put an elk carcass out as camera bait?

I know that the forest service out of Naches was using road kill last winter
Just because you believe something is true doesn't mean that it is true!

They say there are no wolves so putting deads out shouldn't be a problem.

I didn't leave it out, it is in a pile on my own property.

WAC 246-203-121, plus, it is part of coop agreements with ranchers.  Yes, we have rules for every imaginable subject

So they will hang you for putting dead bait out for your trail camera, but you only get life in prison for killing 49 woman and dumping them along the Green river.
