    wildlife cameras

    have wildlife cameras been used successfully to catch people doing bad things on the trail? we've got a mystery re-router that we would like to catch.

    I know that the Army Corps of Engineers in my area has used those cameras to catch people accessing trails and areas that they weren't supposed to. If you do, just make sure the flash is off so no humans can see where the camera is located.

    Along with dburatti's advice I'd telephoto it a bit, so the shutter couldn't be heard. It would be a shame if this jerk altered your trail and took possession of your camera.
    If you're successful post the pictures. Good luck and happy hunting.

    the rerouter attacked some new trails that i built that weren't even ridden in good. i got all pissy and flamed out a post on our club message board. the guilty party actually fessed up. unbelievable. we talked about it and he was very apologetic. so hopefully i've recruited him to help with the trail building and planning. lets hope all future problems are this easy to resolve.

    Please pass-on my kudos to him for having the "manberrys" to step forward.

    welcome back. yeah, the trail is very new and not ridden as much as uwf. in time it will smooth out. with the sand problems we have i've been hesitant to do much manual smoothing. the trail length was measured with a gps so i expected it to be off. what mileage did you get for the loop? i hope to get started again in september when the weather is a little cooler and the thunder storms has dissipated. who do you post as on porc.org forum?

    So am I right in guessing his first task will be restoration?
