Anybody getting after it. 2024 trail cams.
« on: April 23, 2024, 11:28:40 AM »
Tis the season I suppose.
Bucks/bulls what not are growing little nubs.
Like title says.
Anybody hot on it.
I'm still trying to get to some winter cams ,change batteries, refresh with stuff. Before I go banana on any new spots.
2/5 winter cams checked.
I'm a little slow this year.

A lot of talk on here about mineral this winter,then everyone quiet.

Don’t get serious until may or June. Nothing really to see right now. Mid to
late may you can start seeing which bucks are going to be big

I have had a couple cameras out at my cabin all winter. Pretty sure the batteries died but don't know when. Curious to see what is on them when I make it up there here in a few weeks

I havent been able to get to my high cameras yet on account of snow and the pass being closed. (Both East and West side)
Have a few spypoint LM-2 cell cams I have been playing with and a spypoint micro.
The LM-2 cams haven't been too responsive so I'm nervous they are a bust, but they have sent a few pics. (maybe just low traffic spots).
The Micro has been sending lots of deer and elk pics in 418 so that's fun.

I was skeptical of the cell cams so I set up other digital cameras with them to see if they missed anything. Should be getting to those soon.

Waiting for some snow to melt to retrieve some and get all set for this summer.

I've had a couple good cougar pics last month. Struggling to keep my batteries from dying early right now- coldish weather at night I guess. I just ordered a solar charger off Amazon. Gonna play around with that, see if I can go longer-term.

Attached is a video I pulled from a camera unit I placed in October of 2023. This, in the Chiwawa River valley and at about 3,700 feet elevation.

It's a small racked buck chasing a "hot" doe.

Sure hope the wolves like  the taste of grizzly bear and cougar cubs. They're eating up the deer pretty fast. Just not seeing the deer numbers I used to.

Bye the way: the last deer out at this location was December 10th, 2023 and the first deer in, this year, was April 15th, 2024. Pretty standard for this location the last 15 years.

A couple more rando's. I think these are older videos.

Still working on it ,is where I'm at.
I did check all the winter cams,got a few carry over bucks from last year. Nothing really out of the normal.
Few bear pics also ,I'd say some areas I'm in.
Bears came out of hybernation around late March, beginning of April.

Been working on new cams,in new spots.
Those are the ones that have me most excited.
At the same time ,a lot of what if goes along with that.
I plan to set and forget most these cameras.
So I won't return till August or September,which I have no clue what will happen.
Bears could rip down the cam.
Memory card fill up, batteries die, get bashed or stolen.
Salt/minerals ate up from moose.

Part of the fun I guess ,all the what if.
All the cams have new batteries, a 16 or 32 gigabyte card.
Will see if they can last three months till I return.
I will view the most recent pics,make a decision to pull the cam,or leave and maintain that spot.
I have spent more time and money then I ever have in the past.
I will most likely spend my entire bear season checking/pulling cams with a rifle in hand.
My wife is usually very supportive,has said I've fell off the crazy train this year.
I'm only about half done,her and I are about sick of it.

If I do share pics with HW it won't happen till bear season august/September.

Goodluck , Happy camera hunting to all .
