It took awhile and a number of apples knocked into the creek, but eventually one of the bears figured out how to get the apple.

One of my cameras had stopped working, so I didn't get the camera angle of the bear pulling the ham bone off the tree. Tenth strongest bite of all mammals.

Fortunately, the forest is so dense that humans havenít been able to kill them all, like other places.

Default Lions and Tig...Bobcats and Bears, oh my! (My Game Cameras)

On another forum, where Iíve posted hundreds and hundreds of photos and videos, guys have given some of the lions names. One-Eyed Willy, Scar, The Terrible Twins, etc. Itís been a down year for the lions this year. I think itís a combination of more poachers, because so many guys are home making more money on unemployment than at work and I lost my best trees across the creek from a flash flood last winter. The lions liked to cross at those logs and then come up a very steep area to my south driveway. Iím going to to build a 60í foot bridge across the creek soon and put at least four camera angles on it. Iím going to put the foot bridge across the bridge approaches where the full sized bridge used to be. That bridge was washed away in the big flood of Ď96, as I recall. It was 10-12í above the normal water line.

No problem, you could detect in my meadows while I do the work.

Iím going to use a couple of 60í I-beams out of a mobile home that is going to be demolished on a property near me and Iím hoping to have the deck cut with a live edge.

This would have been fun to have on video, but this camera is just set to take photos. I was doing some work on my driveway, so I had some cones put out that were in view of the IR flash. This bear came up my driveway and when it triggered the camera, the reflectors on the cones lit up like they were hit by headlights. Remember, there is no visible light emitted from the camera, it remains pitch black under the forest canopy. The bear stopped, because it was surprised by the reflection and every time it moved, just a hair, the camera would trigger again and the reflectors would flash again, for no apparent reason. As it started to look around, it noticed the dim red glow of the LEDs on the camera. It stood there and looked back and forth from the camera to the cones about a ten times before it continued up the driveway, to the cones, and then gave one of the cones a sniff as the reflectors continued to flash every time it moved.

I donít post many Raccoon photos, even though I think Raccoons are the funniest characters in the forest, but this one was especially funny at times. I put up another camera one time, and the first night it was a little surprised by another red glow. When I saw the first camera angle, I thought the damn thing was smiling at the new camera, but then when I saw the second camera angle, I realized that it just didnít want to share its chicken with the new camera.

one time I screw a quart jar lid on a tree & smeared in it with peanut butter. I wondered if deer liked it. Never knew cause the raccoons would rip it off & took off with them LOL

but try this some day; string across 2 trees about 10 or 12 feet long & in the middle, tie 12" string with an apple on it. A raccoon tried on it, like "tightrope" but half way he slipped over it, never falling, but under the string & got over to the apple

I ought to do it again for kicks - maybe I can find the pix's, it was years ago tho

Raccoons are my most notorious bait thieves. It almost fell in the creek a couple of times.
