Here’s a trail cam pic.  In a sense.  Just a modified rig I came up with to make my camera less obvious in a runoff through a cornfield. T post with a mounted shelf and back for the trail camera to sit on. Placed it directly behind a live corn stalk then took pieces and attached to the top.  Worked just as well as a 40-50 dollar stand and it didn’t cost me a dime.

If it runs, flies, or drives, I’m interested!

I see the potential for a lot of pictures on a windy day with that corn stalk leaf that close to the camera.  I dont know how many times I have had 1000’s pictures of swaying grass or a branch leaf because the camera was too close or the stuff just grew up in front of it.

Actually I had very few false pictures.  It’s all about adjusting your camera settings right though. most trail Cameras detect movement and heat signatures, so a leaf typically doesn’t set off a camera or else everyone would have full memory cards once fall comes around.  In hot weather and in a setup such as this, you want to make sure your camera sensitivity is set to where it will differentiate a stalk of corn in the beating sun that’s swaying from a deer that’s walking through.  And that also deals with closeness to the sensor.  we got some rain last week overnight, very brief but enough wind to blow an adjacent stalk into the frame. Of course with it being so close it, i got some false pictures.  Other than that, not a problem.

Backwood - I’ll have to check to see if I got some sensitivity level on my Moultrie’s (I’m lucky if I can set the date and time right).
I do get a lot of wind pictures from stuff blowing in the background that is not even close to the cameras. The Moultrie camera’s are
propably mid range list for $150(M80), I think I got all mine on sale for around $110.  They been pretty reliable, until last year when the video’s on all my cameras became very shaky and not worth viewing, the trail cam still pictures remained good.  I got to give cudos to Moultrie - I sent back 5 cameras (all past the one yr warranty period) - they sent me 3 new ones and fixed 2 others at no charge.

I agree.  It is a deer head.  Nose down, you can see the eye on the left side.

It is a deer head…  That’s why we must continue to control the coyote population when we’re in the field as well.  I have heard that a coyote can take down as many as 12+ fawns a year???  Not sure how accurate that is?  I do know that they get their fair share.

That really is a wild pic. And I agree, I’m glad to put an arrow in a yote anytime I can get them in range. One public area I hunt in particular is loaded with them and I usually can get one or two out of there a year

I see 2 to 3 coyotes every week I’m on 2nds and 3rds in route to and from work and I only drive about 10 minutes to get there.  I live in town and that’s where I see all of them.  Had one in my side yard about 6 months ago in the middle of the day!  No way to kill them in town except the truck and they’re getting more brave and the population is growing.  We have a few tiny wooded lots around and some small fields.  I just think they’re adapting very well to humans and the food they provide.  I’ve seen one mangy yote a few times that is practically bald!

Deer head or a young coyote pup being moved by the scruff.
