    I've always wanted to put one in my yard to see what critters go by at night. I ran a coon out of my in-the-window bird feeder last night at 3:30 am! I see deer, rabbits, possum and a fox once and hear turkey & coyotes & screech owls. It would be neat to catch them on film.

    Here are a couple of the better ones I have gotten on my deer cam. Never did see either one of these, though. :(

    ' Might just have to talk to Art about this one. There might just need to be a rule against posting such pics with the season a full SIX MONTHS away ... ;)

    Sounds like a good way to lose a camera- when the flash goes off the TP crowd looks for the biggest stick or heaviest rock and you're out more than just a cleaning of the trees!!

    off topic, but last week they were doing it and i managed to sneak out and around them, and got to their car. they made the mistake of leavin it unatended. leaned on it till the came trotting back to run off. scared em S*#$less when i said "evening boys". i don't know if it was the scarey guy in boxer shorts and nothing else or the shotgun pointed at the ground. had to explain that what they was doin was rather annoying, and could be taken as burglery or vandelism and i wouldn't want anyone to be hurt.

    Here is another one. This cam is on a trail, in this daylight pic you can see the ladder stand in the background. I have hundreds of pics from this trail. It is in a bottleneck about 50 yards wide, between 2 large tracts of woods. The trail is worn down like a cattle trail. I let my teenage son use this stand. I love deer camming.

    Billy,

    I made my cams. I have posted a web page that gives info. I got the initial info from Jesse's Hunting Page.

    Here is the LINK to my web page.

    I have about $100 tied up in each of them.

    Good luck on the TP'ers. We went through that a few years ago with the teenagers, and finally had to threaten the parents with legal action to get it to stop. It is tough to do that to family "friends" but that is what it took.

    WoooWeee Mr. Chitlin, I'm in N.W. Arkansas and from the looks of it you may need some help with those critters this season. ;)

    I've always wanted one of those, but never could bring myself to pay for one. May have to look into the homemade version.

    Newt,

    I wanted one for a year or so before I built my first one. Back then, about the only thing out was the Cam Trakker, and it was ~$400 to $500. We have a friend that borrowed one from another guy to take to his property for a week or so. He put it out, and when he went to check it the following weekend, it was gone!! He had to buy the guy a new one. I couldn't sleep at night worrying about $500 hanging on a tree in the woods. When I built my first cam, my wife ragged me about "throwing money away", thinking here comes another one of Mr. C's hairbrained projects. When I got the first roll of film developed, and there were ACTUALLY deer on the pics, the story changed. Now she is just as excited as me about getting the film developed.




    444,

    I get anything and everything on the cam: deer, turkeys, coons, possums, armadillos (Texas speedbump), coyotes, stray dogs, etc. Anything that walks by the cam gets its pic taken. I put my cam out about the first of Sept, and bring it in about the end of March.
