One of these cameras, I decided, would be placed along a small stream in a forested area of hickories, oaks, and beech trees.
I had some help placing this camera with friend, and local blogger, Nick. He's got a great blog that covers his views and opinions on sports. It was good catching up with him and I thank him for coming along and helping me out. See the sports action that he covers here: http://nickdemottsports.wordpress.com/.
We talked blogging, sports, and wildlife while wading through some ferns off-trail. Eventually, we got to a decent spot for a camera. Batteries were checked, an SD card was slipped in, and the camera was propped up on a tree.
It sat there for a week and got a few videos of deer walking by, and that's it. I was really surprised to see only deer videos, since the small stream a few yards away was pocked with tracks of raccoons, muskrats, and squirrels.
I'm better off putting this camera back at the otter den again.
