Mountain Wildlife

Since we live on a mountain surrounded by thousands of acres of wilderness, I decided to set up a trail cam so that I could get pictures of all the wildlife around us. So far we have pictures of wild turkey, deer, red and gray fox, coyotes, possum, ground hogs and raccoons. There is more wild turkey this year than past years.

Years past you would hardly see any turkey, that’s when we had a lot of coyotes. There are not so many coyotes now, not sure if someone killed them or they just moved on. Anyway, I am glad they are gone for now.
We have a black bear that shows up occasionally to raid the bird feeders but I have not been able to get him on camera yet. I had saw him a couple of times, yep, it was male and he was huge. Love all the wildlife!

I have a Reconyx Hyperfire trail camera, it takes great pictures. This trail camera gets everything that walks in front of it.

  1. There are just some things you can get with trailcams that could never be captured otherwise. I love the perspective of this camera, too — turkey eye level. I miss seeing wild turkeys since moving to Seattle. They were in our backyard in Berkeley. 🙂
