Bristling fur and ears laid back
« on: December 10, 2019, 11:03:40 AM »
Captured this video in 2018 while researching late season permit hunt opportunities in the Lake Wenatchee area. This muley buck is definitely clear about his intentions with the interloper.

Enjoy!

Do you do duplicate cameras to enhance your shot, or to cover your camera in case someone monkeys with it , or is that someone elses cam?

Good question.  :tup: I duplicate cameras at each site based on the following expression my brother, a retired NAVY SEAL at Team3 taught me; Mike, "one is none, two is one." Something to do with 'ol Murphy rearing his ugly head. Consequently I now utilize multiple cameras at each site. All cameras are mine located in remote areas by virtue of distance or inaccessibility. I use them as you mentioned to enhance the coverage. Allot of times it's simply a matter of good/bad lighting. Another reason is simplicity or necessity; in spring 99% of the deer are headed in the opposite direction of the fall migration.

Thank you.  I'm not a trail cam guy, but I absolutely love the footage you get.  You are most certainly doing something right, and that makes absolute sense.

You're welcome. Thanks for the kind compliments.

It took a while to learn how to use these devices, as well where to set them up.

I prefer migration trails midway between sub alpine wilderness and lower mountain/steppe winter range vegetation. What's more, I've just recently switched over to video. In my humble opinion, with respect to researching hunting opportunities, the video captures animal behavior better than still photos. Video helps me avoid the pitfalls of arriving at too many erroneous conclusions about deer behavior based on still photo observation. I believe there is a difference, and hopefully others do as well, between what deer and bear do in the wild and what we observe deer or bear DOING, (heck, any wild animal for that matter). What I observe them doing is some sort of activity, but what THEY are doing is some function that helps them survive.
