With the help of other photographers, hunters, and trail camera users, I am beginning to build my own trail cameras with DLSR cameras.
It's tricky. It's challenging. It's exciting!
Here is one of the first decent pictures of mine to come from a "home-brewed" DSLR camera trap. The animal isn't centered and the focus is a bit off, but still, I'm new at these homemade ones.
It's going to be challenging to get all the best shots with this new device, but tomorrow, I am planning to put it where bears are known to show up almost daily.
We'll check it next week.
