    Winter Game Cam

    On November 29th, I set a game cam up about 5 miles from my house. 3 miles behind a forest service gate and than you have to hike about 5 minutes to where I placed the cam. On March 31st, I loaded the snowshoes on the pugsley and proceeded to check the game cam out.
    Now I will say game cams are addicting, it is like Christmas, you never know what you are going to get. I got a lot of pics, this is just a sampling. yes, the wolves are big.

    dang, the batteries in your cam lasted from Nov to the end of March?

    I've used a lot of cameras, and I've had some blow through a set of batteries in a week. Do you have a solar charger setup with yours?

    You've got some nice stuff here. I've been meaning to set one of mine up somewhere in my yard to see what sorts of nighttime visitors I get. My neighborhood adjoins a pretty large hunk of wooded land on some big hills/low mtns and certainly bears have been documented here in the past.

    the paws on the wolf are humungous, same with that wolf.

    5 miles from the house, I do believe it is the same pack of wolves I ran into on my bike, in 2015 in this spot.

    Bushnell trophy cam hd. Combo of lithium and normal energizer aa batteries. There are 8 aa batteries in there. Trail cams have came along way in the last few years. No solar charger. Batteries where still good and I did not change them. Cam is still up, I got 3 going right now.

    cool. I guess it's also worth asking, how many pics did you get? The ones where I'd burn through batteries in a week were also capturing 1,000 or more images.

    I had over 2000 pics. It is not uncommon for me to fill 8 gb cards, which would be over 8000 pics. I was surprised the batteries where still good, but they where. The camera itself claims close to a year run time with 8aa batteries, but I always assumed they meant in warm weather. The screw up I did was having the setting only on one pic per shutter, not 2 pics like I like.

    Nice shots, and yes them there are wolves. Just backing you up before the naysayers chime in saying theyíre coyotes.

    A few from my brothers game camera in his backyard. Which borders a Canyon, but is in the middle of a neighborhood in North County San Diego. He gets Bobcats / Coyotes and Roadrunners in a regular basis.

    Most are at night but this cat was caught mid day looking through his fence for my brothers little dachshund to snack on.

    Edit: Iíve got more but canít find them at the moment.

    The turkeys caught my eye. Beautiful to see them in the wild.

    I have either javelina or mule deer eating my cactus but I have not seen them. also my neighbor told me the mountain lions are back so I would like to see whats out there. or not... and another neighbor said they had to chase a black bear off their porch eating the dog's food. I like to use a gopro with time laps but it doesnt work so well at night.

    Damn, I always figured we had to have Bobcats around here in SD, but never hear anyone mention them. Good to know. I have always loved them, The only one I've ever seen was back home in South Georgia around 2004-2005. Ran across the highway in front of me, thing was huge for a Bob! Looked like a small Cougar in size with huge paws!
