I have not posted any trailcam pictures lately, here are some pictures of the wild turkey that live around our home on the mountain! I love my trail cameras, they are a lot of fun!
Enjoy your Sunday! 🙂
Check out my charcuterie serving platters !
This is the red fox that likes to hang around out home. Around 6:30 PM most evenings he is in our yard checking out everything and has come within 15 feet of me. I guess he is checking me out too! He is absolutely beautiful, these pictures don’t really show his colors very well.
He also hangs out on our driveway where I put out corn for the turkey.
Off he goes looking for food!!
Trails cameras are a lot of fun and you never know what you have on the pictures, great for security too.
I wish these pictures had been during the daylight so we could see their beautiful red colors and their huge fluffy red tails! The smaller ref fox has a lot of black on his legs.
Check out my other trail cam photos!

Yesterday afternoon I decided to move my Reconyx trail camera further into the woods along a trail where I had spotted a Red Fox just last week. I set out two stadium cup full of whole corn and a cup of birdseed.
The first night at this location I ended up with over 100 pictures. I picked out a few pictures to share, two different Red Fox and a huge Coyote! 🙂 Notice the time stamp on all the pictures!
There were two different Red Fox last night. Notice that the first three pictures are the same red fox, this one does not have any black on his legs.
The next three pictures are of a Coyote, he came by two hours after the first red fox. Notice the time on all the pictures.
Typical of coyotes, he has a bushy, black-tipped tail, yellow eyes, long pointed ears and a long muzzle.
The last couple pictures is of another red fox, notice that this one has a lot of black on his legs. He also appears to be smaller in size.
After this fox, there was nothing buy raccoons the rest of the night.

I moved my trail camera to catch the bird feeders so that I could see what was happening during the night. It started early around 10:15 PM and continued all night into the early morning hours.
There was one, then two!
Now it’s starting to get crowded at four!
Then there were five!
I had more Raccoons pictures than I could have posted, The Raccoons were under the bird feeders all night!
Check out my other Reconyx Trail Camera pictures, raccoons, bobcat, wild turkey, red fox, and more!
Yesterday afternoon, I decided it was time to check my trail camera for pictures. There were a lot of pictures on the Sandisk memory card, raccoons, red fox, possum, ground hogs, squirrels, birds, shunk, deer, turkey and coyote.
Here are a few pictures of the Red Fox! The picture just before the red fox there were a couple raccoons in that area! I think he smells the raccoons!
One evening a couple weeks ago I was filling my birdfeeders and I had a beautiful Red Fox walk up within 4-5 feet of me. He was a beautiful red and gray color and I am sure he was looking for food. He just stood there for 2-3 minutes, didn’t seem scared at all and then he walked away back into the woods. I wonder if it is the same fox in these trail cam pictures?
Notice the time stamp on the pictures, after about 6 pictures around 5:36 PM, he returns again at 5:47 PM

We have alot of Red Fox that roam the moutain, many of them we will see in the evening just before sunset. Here are two pictures of red fox that my Reconyx Hyperfire HC600 trail camera caught the last day of October this year around 10:42 PM. The pictures are seconds apart, be sure to double click the pictures to see a full view.
The lights you see in the back ground is our driveway gate.
As I hike the mountain around our home I am always on the lookout for fox and coyote dens but I have not found any yet. I am sure there are more than one fox den becuase I have seen at least seven different red fox. If you have never seen a red fox they are really beautiful animals. They are the size of a large dog with a beautiful red fur with cream color on the underside. The Winter fur is dense, soft, silky and relatively long.
The red fox is not always the classic red color. There are many different phase and color variations which give the red fox many different names such as the black fox, the silver fox, cross fox, the samson fox and there are also albinos. Occasionally we will see a gray fox but only about 2-3 times a year.
Be sure to check some of the letters and emails from wonderful people who have purchased from me.
I decided this morning to pull the sandisk memory card from my trail cam and see if I had any good pictures. It is always kinda fun to see what animals have been on our property. I had the usual animals, deer, raccoon, ground hogs, coyotes and always a lot of turkey. Every now and then I will get a black bear but this is the first time I have gotten a bobcat. I have seen this bobcat many, many times but I have never caught him on the trail cam. The last time I saw this bobcat he came running off our front porch as we drove up our driveway. I figured he was looking for our cats.
These pictures were taken by my Reconyx Hyperfire trail cam mounted on a tree along my driveway. The lights you see in the background are on our gate. I really enjoy my Reconyx trail cam. Each pictures is date and time stamped in the upper left hand corner, an image of the moon is shown and the temperature. Look at the time stamp on all these pictures. My trail cam took three pictures in time sequence, then the last picture was taken 2 minutes later than the first three. The bobcat is about 15 to 20 feet from the camera.
The bobcat is the only native wild cat that we have in South Carolina. they generally weigh between 9 and 30 pounds. As you can see they are small but muscular with their hind legs longer than its front legs.
They are very secretive cats and are nocturnal preferring thick wooded areas for hunting. Here in the mountains of South Carolina we have a good many bobcats.
This was the last picture taken of the bobcat.
Raccoons looking for foood.
I decide to pull theSanDisk card from my Reconyx trail cam today and had a over 50 pictures of wild eastern turkey, 20 plus night pictures of raccoons and a a few of a red fox. Most of these turkey pictures are males, tom or often called gobblers. Tom turkeys have a beard, a snood on top of their head, dark almost black plunage around the neck and the extra claw or spur behind the foot. Click on the pictures to enlarge to see the details I mentioned!
I love these pictures where they are flapping their wings, looks like they are standing on their toes!!
I love my trail cam, the brand I purchased is a Reconyx Hyperfire trail cam but there are many different brands and price ranges. Each picture get the date and time stamp, moon and temperature.
Previous post on Wild Mountain Turkey.
It rained heavy nearly all night and morning. The local weather channel said we got another 3/4 inch of rain. I wanted to go pull the SanDisk card out of my trail cam but it was raining to heavy. We’ve had over 14 inches of rain now in July. It finally stopped raining around 11:00 AM.
When I pulled the card I found a total of 199 pictures since the last time I pulled the SanDisk card. Alot of wild mountain turkey activity again, raccoons, possum and one black possum. This turkey picture was take by my Reconyx HC600 Hyperfire Trail Cam on July 24, 2013 at 4:08:06 PM, it was 77 degrees at the time of the picture.

Out of all the turkey pictures, this one is really good because it’s a close up. There were four close up pictures but this one was the closest.
I don’t hunt, I just like to see pictures of all the wildlife around us. This Reconys HC600 Hyperfire trail camera is great. It takes pictures when is senses motion, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Having a trail cam is alot of fun!
Another wild turkey picture post.
