Title: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on April 06, 2012, 11:14:04 am
I am new to this forum but have some trail cam pics that are pretty good...Let me know if this fits in or not. This was taken a month or so ago..I have had problems keeping the proper date on the cam.

These are small Kit Foxes that I had never seen and did not know there were such things in the Sonoran Desert even after living here for 20 years. Lots of wind noise on the microphone.

I expect that the building there is your home.

Are you baiting them to the camera area?  Looks like they're coming in for food.

It's amazing how much wildlife moves around in rural and suburban areas, even with nobody (deliberately) feeding them. I've seen more than my share of deer, javelina ( :cursing ) and coyotes in the yard in broad daylight.

Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on April 11, 2012, 04:25:29 pm
The trail in front of my house is a natural trail for movement..., that's the trail the deer were on.  The other photos are in the back of my home.  That is not a natural trail area and yes I put dog biscuits out to attract them within range to photograph them.... Otherwise they would not be there at all... Or only by happenstance.

Post by: Guy1az on April 11, 2012, 04:35:26 pm
I have a bushel trophy cam, a stealth cam and a cuddleback cam.  They are all different and have different strong points ... I just bought one at first... Just guessed since I had not known anyone else that had ever had one.

I'm in the same boat that you were in, can you give us a side by side comparison of the pros and cons for the three cams that you have? Especially any infrared capabilities.

I took this some time ago.   I took  it with a hand held digital camera off the back porch.   They often come to the back of my home to give birth..often twins...and are very very protective of their young...they squeal like a any baby.

Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on April 17, 2012, 10:55:00 am
Mountain William asked for me to compare the three types of  cameras I use.  I just started doing this a while ago and have never know anyone else that used a trail cam so I think I have made all the mistakes you can possibly make. 

Bushnell Trophy Trail Cam
  This was my first trail cam and has give me some of my best daytime pictures.  It is not the fastest as far as trigger speed but it is very reliable.  Night IR photos are not its strong point as they are sometimes fuzzy.
  Not the simplest to program but stays locked in.  It does have a tripod adapter which is great for me as there are not many trees here in the Sonoran  desert.  Not all cams come with this feature so depending on where
  you live this could   be important. Usually (I guess) people strap them to trees but I have never done that. This camera downloads great..as a matter of fact I use it  to download the sd cards from my other two cameras.
  This unit takes video and stills and as with most you must choose which one either or.  This unit seems to be the best as far as battery usage.

Stealth Cam
  My unit does not  have a name other than having Model stc-u840irs1on it.  This unit takes tremendous video and still photos as as with most you must choose which one.  It is IR also as all three of mine are.  It also has a tripod adapter.  It is easier to program than the Bushnell and uses the same number of AA batteries.  I had some problems with this unit after purchasing and had to return it  to the manufactuer which was a major pain.  The help desk referenced in their instruction manual was very helpful in my returning the unit because it was not taking videos.   They set up a return with no charge etc and things went well...until I received the unit back (actually in record time) the only problem being the unit they returned had the battery springs hopelessly tanged together --so much that to untangle them would damage them.  So here they go back again..pretty frustrating.  The personnel at the help desk were very helpful  but the factory did not see to mirror their responsiveness.
In ant event this is a good quality camera and has worked flawlessly since.

Cuddeback Ambush IR
  This unit is really a higher quality unit than the others.  What I really like is you do not have to choose between still or video...it automatically takes one still then video.  Or you can choose to have only still pictures.  The unit itself is well made and feels well made.  It has IR capability also and uses the same amount of AA batteries also.  It is easiest to program..very simple and takes excellent quality videos and  still pictures.  The only fault I have it it does not  have a tripod  adapter.  The have  a "genius mount" that is nailed/screwed or strapped  to a tree.  Once that mount is done the unit slides in and out on the two bolt down screws on the back side.  This option is very convenient for removing the unit to change settings.  It was a pain for me initially because I had to strap it to a tripod with plastic tiedown then anchor it down because it was  front heavy on the tripod.  That aside it is the best quality trail cam I have.   Another factor to consider it that there is no facility on the unit for downloading it to your computer....you would have to use a digital cam to do this.  They do sell a unit for doing  this that will do some nice things like transfer one sd card to another..it is called appropriately enough the "Cuddeview field viewer".  I purchased one of these but do not use it.  I download all three of my units using the Bushnell cam itself which works great.

Anyway that is probably more than you wanted to know but there it is.  Be careful of the SD cards  you use as your user manual on  your trail cam usually specifies which card to use as to manufacturer.  Also on some they will tell  you not to view them on a digital camera as the camera will reprogram them and they will not work in your trail cam anymore.
I am fortunate that I set my cams outside my home and can check them daily ....if I had to set them a ways from home it would just be harder to learn what to do and what not.   I think I have made all the mistakes that can be made but maybe you can make  some new ones...
Anyway would love to see some pics on here that you make.

I ran up on a set of coyotes in broad daylight along the APC Canal coming into to North Phoenix.  The lead 'Yote was FRICKIN HUGE!  I'm guessing a Coy-Dog mix with something like a large German Shepard.  I think by himself I'd not have noticed his size but he obviously dwarfed the female he was with.

I don't see these Kit Foxes very often as they are pretty reclusive.  I have never seen one during the day and never seen one not on a trail cam.  I have read that they live in rocky areas where their smaller size lets them hunt areas that coyotes cannot.

I really think the javelina will try and eat the camera as they will absolutely eat anything.  They have sniffed it, knocked it over and drug it under their feet.  I was out of town for a few days and the javelina had knocked the camera onto it's back.  I got four days of photos and videos of the sun moving east to west across the sky.  Which if there were an eclipse might be interesting but I can attest to the fact that there was not one last week... And I had over 800 pictures to prove it.

Five mule deer came up the trail last night.  This is a good example of what is not so good about a Bushnell Trophy Cam.  It takes great pics during the day but not so much at night...pretty blurry and unclear compared to other cameras.  It also blurs images easily at night.

These javelina tromped all over last night---even bumping into the camera knocking it into another direction.

Last night there were deer in the front and javelina, coyotes and foxes in the back.  They seem to avoid each other for the most part. It is darker than a mother in laws heart out there and they seem to navigate just fine.

The javelina herd completely buffeted the camera around...there were so many it had to get some views.

Great pics.  A herd of javelina can make a mess of your yard.  My cousin in Pinal county has had problems with them for years off and on.

I agree the kit foxes are cute but I doubt they would make a good pet. :no

They sure can make a mess.  I have a drip system in the front part of the yard and they keep me busy replacing the lines they root up.  Fortunately they never stay in one spot very long.

Ok you guys this is what I have done.  I have often read where many  desert animals even if there is water  will not drink because it is not part of their normal habitat.  Actually I have read that javelina have a very unique way of dealing with this issue in that their system actually processes urine twice in order to extract all possible moisture.   It is 105 today with 4% humidity.  Sooo I placed a substantial tub of water out in the back yard where the bedouin javelina roam and kit foxes and coyotes normally hunt for rabbits/mice.  I have located a seperate video camera discreetly back a distance to  make sure there is no confusion as to why they are there. We shall see.

Post by: Guy1az on June 02, 2012, 05:08:07 pm
Well you would think so.  I put a pretty big bin of water out there but they might be avoiding it just because it is new and could be a threat. I placed the bin about 20 feet from the hillside where they hunt for mice. Last night not sure what happened... There was no activity on the cam but it could have just not activitated.. Or they were afraid of it.  I will leave it up for a while just because I am curious about whether they will use or not.  I put the most reliable cam on it ... We shall see.

Post by: Guy1az on June 04, 2012, 08:21:20 am

This is not a very good video but it shows two of the six puppies wandering around.  This Stealth cam has sound so you can hear him making a racket.  The IR is reflecting off the ground which it never has before but I moved the camera to put one by the water bin.
The tub of water has been out there for at least three days and nights and nothing at all has even sniffed it.  The kit foxes just walked by it and nothing else has been anywhere near it.  Maybe it is still too new to them or maybe they  have a source for water.  There are swimming pools in this canyon so maybe they just access those regularly.  I will leave it in place for a while anyway just to see.

I put a large bin of water out June 1 just to see if any animals would drink from it or if they are just used to taking the moisture from what they eat.  You would think they would be used to it by now and finally last night a single javelina drank from it.  Maybe it took this much time to get used to it or maybe they just don't ever drink...he  did not drink very much..not as much as I would have thought.

Great pics!  I really enjoy this thread -   :thumbup.   As dry as it has been this year I also would think the animals would use the water tank you provided but instinct is a hard thing to overcome.  They probably want the water but have trouble not seeing the tank as a possible threat.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on June 06, 2012, 07:56:36 am
Well it has to be one or the other...but he did not drink much at all.  Maybe I will just leave it out and see if they become more comfortable with it.  The kit fox just walked by it without a glance and you would think they would have to at least smell it.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: coelacanth on June 06, 2012, 08:02:11 am
During the monsoon season You can sometimes see the tracks around natural "tanks" and washes that form puddles in the bends.  I find it interesting to note that most of the tracks are deer and birds.  Occasionally you will see a canine track although it is hard to distinguish fox or coyote from a wild domestic dog which are common close to cities like Phoenix.  Javelina tracks are rare which leads me to believe they are not as dependent on open water as other animals.

For some reason my dogs prefer old water.  If I give them fresh water and put it next to a bowl that's been out for a few days, they will finish off the old bowl before starting the new bowl.

It takes twenty or thirty hours for the chlorine in tap water to dissipate.  To the dogs I imagine fresh tap water smells like a pool that has just had chlorine shock added to it.  They like it better after the chlorine odor dies down a bit.

I took this pic with a handheld camera off the back porch.  This little guy got a bush between him and his mom and lost sight of her....he started to cry and wail in this tiny voice....she came charging back tearing through bushes and anything that was in her way was in trouble.  I guess they are like any mom anywhere. She was popping her teeth like they do when they get all agitated...glad I was up on the porch.

Believe me I am careful.  My back porch is about five feet off the ground so there is no way they can access me.  I have seen them fight each other and they really get going at times.  In the past they have come to a bushy area off the porch to have their babies and stay a few days till the babies get big enough to follow the herd on their daily rounds.

Last year at the Desert Museum here in Tucson a German tourist encountered a javelina walking freely down a path inside the museum. He bent down to pet the free ranging oinker and said oinker bit the hell out of him.  A massive search was initiated but the elusive pig managed to evade authorities and make a clean get away.  I have always had a picture in my mind of a lederhosen clad German wearing a feather in his two point hat offering his hand to an Arizona javelina.  Last I heard he was recuperating from said javelina while he sued anyone and everyone that might or might not have been at the museum that day.

You know they taste like chicken.  I was at a party once where they baked a javelina in a pit in the back yard.  After some initial setbacks (they severed a phone line while digging the pit) the pig was roasted and presented.
It had a faraway taste of hair and horns to me.

Okay I put the  water bin out June 1 and this is the first time anything has come near it.  I have had foxes, coyotes and javelina just walk by so far.  It has been out a long time and I have not refreshed it in order for  the chlorine to dissipate as suggested. It has been well over a hundred and bone dry for weeks.   Not even quail  have used it.  If you look at the second pic the coyote does not ever drink from what I can  see..she just sniffs it. My only conclusion is they don't want it or need it...or they are drinking from another trusted source...maybe someones pool.

Great pics as usual.  I wonder if the size and shape of the water container make a difference?  Most animals are accustomed to drinking from ground level sources and sticking their head down in a container might not appeal to them.  Still, if they need the water you would think they'd eventually overcome that.  Small animals might not be able to use it without putting themselves in danger of drowning.   Not suggestions, just "thinking out loud".

I went out  to check the trail cam in the front yard this morning which is located pretty much in a bare parking area in front of a trail.  I was in a hurry as I had to get my wife to the airport as she was going out to Detroit on business for a couple weeks.  Anyway I had on shorts and sandals and in a big hurry..as we all usually are.  About 2 feet from the camera was a pretty big rattler all stretched out in the sun--it was about 7:10.  If I  had not seen him ..I was one step away....as he was camoed pretty good in the gravel...I would had stepped on him big time.   It would have been a very very bad day.  A friend I used to work with was struck twice by one while playing golf here in Tucson and he was gone from work for months and months. Anyway this is  the forth rattler I have seen on this property and only the first one had rattled at all...the other three did not rattle even once even after they knew I was close to them..no warning nothing.
I am now wearing boots to check the cameras.

Glad you didn't get bit.  I have found that most rattlers are pretty docile unless you try to poke and play with them.  I've come up on dozens of them while hunting - usually in the morning or in the evening.  I've only heard one rattling - the others were all on the move looking for food.  Shoot, I've come to within about 2-3 feet of them and they usually just turn their head, look at me, and slither off.  Stepping on them though tends to not make them very happy:)  Gotta lose the flip flops for sure!

I remember way back in the day rock climbing at Pinnacle Peak when it was still accessible.  I was about 50 feet off the deck and came face to face with a tiny little rattler, maybe a foot long if I had to guess, sitting just inside a crack.  The little guy just turned slightly and stared at me.  Didn't rattle or anything.  I calmly reached above him for a hold and slowly moved on past him up the face of the rock.

I later in the day starting thinking about the situation and it was pretty damn frightening after the fact.  My face was easily within striking distance.  I don't think I climbed much the rest of the day.

I have read the small ones are more dangerous as they have not learned to regulate their poison and give you a ton if they bite.. You were indeed lucky.
I don't mind them if I am out hunting or hiking but I hate them around the house.  I think I have only heard one rattle when approached and the rest just try to move out and fast.

Good stuff.  Mind the reptiles.   :yes   I always wonder what people not from Arizona must think about our environment when they come across posts like these.  I have been on sites and chatted with people who are seriously freaked out that stuff they think should be in a zoo just wanders through our yards at random.  :shocked    :rotfl

I know what you mean.  My family members won't hardly visit because they are positive some creature will bite them or carry their babies off like a dingo in Australia.
Come to think of it it has served me well in not having them visit.

Actually I have more than my share of scorpions and when I tell them I have been stung three times in bed after I felt them crawling on me at night that usually does it.  Our property borders on Saguaro National Park West so I guess that makes sense.

I am posting this video not for its content---just a couple of rabbits hanging out this morning but to show the new cuddeback camera....I think it is pretty good.  This is the "Attack" camera and is quite a big larger than the "Ambush" camera which I also use.  I really like the feature the cuddeback's have --which is as far as I know exclusive to them--that you can select the option to first take a picture then it automatically take a video.  I also use a Bushnell Trophy camera which is good for daylight and really not good at night but is dependable.  I also use a stealth cam which is good and I really like the sound that it records...none of the others --That I own anyway has a audio capability. The Cuddeback's have excellant quality as far as construction is concerned. They are kinda picky about what format you can download to a computer on...I used to use a Nikon camera to download all the pics to but it did not recognize the Cuddeback cards.  I had to get a Cuddeback reader to be able to see them...maybe other camera's can view them but mine could not.  Anyway I wanted to see  the quality of the video after posting and I think it is pretty good.

Hey Guy, stay safe out there in paradise when your're checking your trail cams.

One of the guys I used to work with was hit twice by a rattler while playing golf here in Tucson.  They tossed him in a golf cart and rushed him to the hospital. They gave him a shot of anti venom. He had a reaction to that and his heart stopped. He had a hell of a time and was gone from work for about 6 months if I remember correctly.

Got this beautiful bobcat yesterday morning.  Note it is 8:13 in the morning and a time I would not have thought this guy would be moving but who knows.  Anyway not as much animal movement lately as I have seen in the past few months..perhaps it is related to the rains we have gotten recently and they have changed their patterns.  That's about all I can think of that is different.  This is by the trail out front that the deer frequently use but he appears not to have used it  but come from a different direction.

There certainly are  (different animals).  I have thought about putting one out where it might pick up some one but I would probably never get the camera back..especially at night when an infrared glow would be detected.  Interesting though and a great picture.  Those guys don't look like they are suffering much beside the loads they are carrying.  I wonder how much they are paid for that?

This is one of the  six pups that were born a while ago.  I thought he was just taking a reflective moment sticking his ears into the camera but if you look carefully he is watching something that is moving in the rocks directly to the front....I cannot tell exactly what it is maybe one of the other pups.  Maybe you can identify it.

Depends on who you talk to and the animal from what I have read.  They do make trail cams that flash like a camera and some people prefer those.  They allow color at night and some guys say it does not disturb the animals.  I think at most they see a dull glow in IR and thats it.

The pups are great!

I was curious because I've looked at IR lights at night and seen the faint red glow.  When the animals get close to the cameras it's almost like they're checking out the light source.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on July 16, 2012, 02:45:51 pm
I think you are exactly right... I have video of them walking being on camera and getting close to the camera and locking up and freezing upon seeing something that I have to guess it is the IR glow.  Coyotes and  the other animals we get on camera are so used to living in close proximity to humans they take most of it in stride.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: GTGallop on July 16, 2012, 07:40:29 pm
I wonder if its the light or human smell.

Wear a white undershirt, then throw it out there at the end of the day. see if they hit on that like the light.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on July 16, 2012, 10:05:23 pm
I guess it could be a combination of both.  I check the cams every morning around 7 or 7:30 so
can't help but put scent on then and around them. But there are a lot of homes in the area so they have to be be well accustomed to it.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on July 18, 2012, 07:58:03 am
At least three of the six puppies are still alive.  Not sure if all three are in this video but there were three total last night.  It is interesting to see the IR flash from another camera in this video.

Just purchased a Bushnell Trophy  Cam HD Max and am interested to see how it works.  It claims to not have the glow of a normal cam operating in IR at night. This one claims to have a no glow black LED that is invisible to game and people...interesting.  I have never put one that was not on my property for fear of someone seeing the camera or the glow and stealing it.  Hmmm gotta start you thinking.

I've seen the same one (or two) up in North Scottsdale near Carefree at least 4 times recently, twice in my buddies back yard on his back porch just sitting there.  I believe in the wild they are very reclusive, but on the outskirts of town, they are getting a good food source and becoming less reclusive or something because I've seen them a lot up in the north Valley in the Pima/Carefree area.

You are exactly right.  A friend of mine had so many in north Tucson he had to pay a capture company to come out and trap them.  The trapper makes a pretty good living out of it.  I looked at his setup and he had a live chicken in one end and the trap in the other.  That chicken clucks all the time.  I asked him if the chicken was scared and he said no way... He has been through this a hundred times.  I had to go water and feed the chicken... He took 4 boncats out of there.  The owner ( my friend) was afraid they would eat  his Jack Russell.  The funny part is he posts a video on utube when he releases them.. He did not know it at the time but it was right by my house!

This individual shows up a lot as he hunts mice on the hillside behind the house.  He is pretty  nervous all the time and darts around like a rat on crack.  Anyway you can see him trigger a second camera when he leaves down the trail.  Not sure if he sees the flash or not....the camera picks it up but not sure if we or he sees it since it is IR.  I am going to have to stumble around down there some night to find out.

Ok so a friend of mine had a pretty good sized dead Coy (sp?) in his pond and since he was out of town his niece asked me to deal with the dead body at the bottom of the pond  because all the other Coy were freaking out and had limited themselves to a tiny corner of the pond.
So I fished him out (sorry) and thought I wonder if I put him in front of the trail  cam what would happen.  Considering everything I have ever caught on a cam is pretty much land locked it might be interesting to just see what they would do.  Well here it is and I expected anything but  what happened...maybe you guys have some input  on why what  happened did...I think it is kind of bizarre.

Post by: Intel6 on August 13, 2012, 07:55:14 am
Pretty common for domesticated dogs. We have a few wiener dogs who are crazy hunters and the prey in my backyard woodpile is lizards. I have found more than a few lizard carcasses (among other dead things) out in the yard. Yesterday I was out in the back and I noticed my big weiner Heidi sniffing something and then rolling around on it. I went over to see what it was and it was a rotting lizard torso with no head or tail.

Growing up there were lots of creeks around my house and some of the bigger ones had big ass Carp/Koi in them. I took our family dog (Airdale) out to the creek and let him run around and he found a giant rotting Koi and proceeded to flop down on it and completly cover himself in rotting fish and stink. took a lot of dog shampoo to get that stink out of him.

I live in a canyon which has one road in and one road out with steep canyon walls all around.  There are about four large javelina  packs (10--15) that make the rounds all around the canyon...they can leave of course but don't seem to.  I used to put dog biscuits our to get them into camera range but seldom do anymore as they have made it part of their rounds.  I have several..or had..large cactus in the yard which they had eaten to the ground...they will eat freaking anything.

Heard that one night outside of my tent.  .   . :saywhat?   Sounded like a couple of guys having a hushed conversation several yards away so I was all ready to confront the cretins but then it stopped.  Ten minutes later my curiosity got the better of me and I got my flashlight and went out for a look - nothing but a bunch of munched prickly pear pads and peccary poop.  Weird sound though if you've never heard it.

Didn't spill any coffee, just stopped in my tracks.  I think he came via the garage.  The night before, I was unloading the SUV at night, left the house door open for a while as I went in and out of the garage.  I think he was in my garage, and then came into the house.  Again he was really little, not more than 12" long.

I have had a small ones in my garage also.  He had to have come in under the garage door seal because it is slightly irregular.  He was curled up in the corner.  I have read where they are very very deadly  as they have not learned how to regulate the amount of venim they release and just dump it all.

I get plenty of rabbits on the cam .. Which is probably why we have the coyotes.  I don't get as many deer and bobcats as I would like.  They only use the trail in the front yard.  I did get a bobcat this week but i had the tripod too high and only got the top of his ears.  Tons of quail also.  Bear in mind I hzve  5 cams set up at any given time so I always get something.  Three years ago we had a mountain lion on the front porch... That is my ultimate goal... To get a pic of that would be incredible .

You probably have more going on at night than you think.

Actually not, unless something has changed.  When I moved to this acreage a couple of years ago I was having trouble with
break-ins and one of my neighbors set up his trail cams to check things for a couple of months after the incidents.

There was really nothing interesting wildlife wise.  I think living here where there is so much agriculture going on has chased
the interesting wildlife to the more isolated rural areas like yours there in that canyon.

Keep up the good work there Guy.   BTW- did you get your house fixed from the rook leak ok?

Well you know your area best.  I have not gotten everything repaired yet and it is a mess.  Parts of the sheetrock on the walls and ceiling with insulation still missing.  I had to go back east they can't start yet you name it.  All and all it totals $9,000 damage... Funny part is.. My deductible is $ 10,000.
Go figure.  My wife goes back east next sat so the repairs start monday.  Be so glad to get back to normal.

These Kit Foxes are so reclusive I put out a few dog biscuits to lure them away from the hillside directly behind the house where they hunt.  I have read they are able to hunt areas that coyotes cannot because they are smaller and more adept at smaller narrower ledges. Anyway I have never seen one in person day or night thats how elusive they are.   Mr. Mung Tail was not around I guess as they guys look good.

I had to move this guy out of the driveway yesterday morning as he was right in back of my vehicle.  I did it from a distance with a metal rod...he did not like it much as I got to see his teeth.

A lot of the larger hunting/shooting stores sell them plus online has a ton of them. You can google trail cams or check ebay has a lot in all price ranges.  Plus some of the bigger brands offer refurbished units at substantially reduced rates on their websites.  It would be great to get some one elses pics on here.

This is not a very good video of a Kit Fox but it shows the fox with the funky tail....it kinda looks better I think.  It reminds me of  a dogs tail when it gets broken.  A friend has a Jack Russel and when he swims too much he get "swimmers tail' and it looks crooked until it heals...reminds me of that.

I've been thinking I have to try to get a trailcam of my own and set one up again.  Maybe this time around there will be more wildlife since its not as dry this year as when I borrowed a couple of them to set up the first time. Its been a relatively wet summer instead of the dry dusty storms down here this year and maybe I'll see something interesting.

Post by: brandyspaw on September 10, 2012, 07:58:20 pm
Hey Jerry, I need some advice on trailcam placement.  Where would you recommend to place one single trailcam?  My backyard is close to an acre but its all fenced in by block walls so I doubt I'll see any wildlife in there except for the rabbits that go under the gates. 

I have no immediate neighbors thanks to the housing crunch.  Just empty acreages on the sides, back and front except for one neighbor whose fence touchs the corner of my fence.  So its pretty open down the road I'm on and it just dead ends so no traffic. 

But since its all flat, bare areas surrounding me I was wondering if it might be better to put the camera off my property so its pointing to a wash that runs along the side of my lot. I was thinking of that area instead of putting anywhere in front of the house as it seems like the wash would be as close as I'll get to a game trail in my area.

Bill
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on September 10, 2012, 09:17:43 pm
Bill,
Washes in  my areas are pretty much highways for some while avoided by others.. Should be plenty of tracks to see who is using it.  I try to put mine between where they might feed at night and bed during the day.  If it is not on your property I would put my name on it somehow.  Maybe only maybe it might keep someone from stealing it.
Sounds like the backyard would not be good. I would go with the wash as it sounds like your best bet.  If there are any trails that parallel the wash or empty into it might be good also.  When you place your camera give it a chance time wise.  By that I mean don't put it at a sharp bend which by the time it comes on the animal is  gone.  If you use a tripod like i do weight it down with a sandbag or rocks.  I always hit mine with cheap spray paint to take the metal shine off.  Also one of the most valuable things to do is set it up inside your home for a few hours.  While not a big hit with your wife (or my long suffering wife)it gives you a great appreciation of how it records, what distance it can capture, how it works night and day etc.  Don't worry about making mistakes... I have made them all already just be patient.. You will get some good pics.
Jerry
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: brandyspaw on September 10, 2012, 10:04:34 pm
Thanks for the tips.  I just thinking the wash might be my best bet.

I'm planning on attaching it real close to my wall along my easement.  That won't keep someone from stealing it but I'm going to tie a large tumble weed (keeping the lens exposed, off course) around the camera so it won't be too noticeable. Theses a road next to the wash but you can't drive next to my wall (because of the wash) unless your're actually in my subdivision.  That won't keep someone from walking up to the trailcam and taking it but hopefully it will be disguised enough.

I saw this guy in the front yard area and took this with a hand held camera through the front glass.  I went back and looked where they came through the yard and I only got the bottom part of them...they never go where you want them to.  The next two pics are where they stopped and watched some lady walk her foo foo dog through the desert...that dog is going to get snatched and eaten one day.  They froze and watched her forever...they have unlimited patience.

It is pretty amazing..my  bedroom is right behind the back porch railing you see in the photo.  All that goes on not 20 feet from where I am sleeping. I get a ton of photos each night usually about 100...I post only those that are the best as I don't  want everyone to get tired of them. The bobcats are the most elusive...and I have seen mountain lion here also so that would be tremendous to get a shot of that.  Anyway I am glad people like to look at them..you never know what you will see.

You got that right.  If you get close to or in a tight situation with a javelina they will bite the hell our of you.  I have seen  them pretty hopped up and they charge through cactus or whatever is there..and you don't want to be there when they arrive.

You are right..they would be hell on a dog.  Especially if there were more than one which there usually are. They fight among themselves all the time but immediately band together when faced with any threat.  The hair raises on their backs and they  start popping those jaws..look out.

They " javelina " also will attack a dirt bike riders when cornered.  Ask me how - scared the crap out of me.  I was on a 500 and it took me a while to out run them.

The coyotes and kit foxes are impressive, but there is just something about wild cats that just make me stare. Those are amazing animals.

Go this pic just last night..its like John asked for it.  He is just coming onto a trail alongside the house here from the open desert. Note he has a little tear on the top of his left ear.  These bobcats are the hardest to capture on cam...it is just the nature of cats I guess.

Your great pics compelled me to check my trail cam that I have up at my cabin south of Prescott (my property is directly adjacent to the Prescott National Forest, so we get a fair share of critters, though not nearly the numbers that you see).

I was looking through the snapshots from the past couple months and I only plucked a couple of deer photos and a funny third one.  It took me a moment to register what the heck it was.  The nearest cattle ranch has got to be 20 miles from my cabin.  I guess free-range cattle raising is alive and well in Arizona.....even in the forest!  Ha!
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on October 05, 2012, 03:25:54 pm
Wow great pics...that guy is doing some serious free ranging....incredible.   Good to see someone else's pics on here.  That is what I always thought would be perfect...a cabin bordering a National Forest.  What a great setup that is...absolutely perfect.
What kind of camera are you using?
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: capcyclone on October 05, 2012, 03:40:18 pm
Actually, it's just one of those cheap Wildgame Innovations cameras.  I bought 2 of them for like $75 at Sportsmans Guide - I think they sell them at WalMart too.

I wanted to just try the cameras out and make sure they didn't get molested/stolen before I made an investment in quality cameras.  In retrospect, I probably didn't have much to worry about that as much as I thought.  I'm so deep in the woods that I don't think anyone would come across them, much less bother them.

I've been happy with the photos thus far - but as I mentioned I've only had them up for a few months, so the temperatures have cooperated.  I'm anxious to see how the cameras (and batteries) react to the cold temps.  The cameras claim to be able to withstand temps colder than anything we've seen at our cabin and we'll use lithium batteries, but still - you get what you pay for - right? 

I set the cameras up along what appeared to be a natural clearing and/or game trail.  My second camera was angled upward too much....so although motion triggered the camera on numerous occassions - I got nice pictures of the tops of pine trees and sky.  Pretty pictures - but not exactly the pics I was looking for.

My second camera (the one responsible for the few I shared) snapped deer fairly often (never more than 3 days in between "sightings").  I will look through the pics again and post some more - but all of mine are of deer (except for the big beefer). 

We've seen turkeys on our property a few times over the 7 years we've owned the property.  I'd LOVE to capture some pics of those.  The first time we saw turkeys I didn't know what the heck it was.  I could see motion on a wooded/bushed hillside and they were LOUD.  Almost as soon as my mind identified what the heck the sound was - they came into a clearing.  I wish I had my camera with me as that was a cool sight.

Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: capcyclone on October 05, 2012, 04:14:22 pm
Okay, I'll post one more of my favorites from the latest bunch. 

I like this one because I think it demonstrates animals' keen hearing.  The way this doe is cranking her neck around to look back at the camera tells me that it was probably silent in the forest that evening and even the slight sound of the pic getting snapped was enough for our little friend here to turn her head and check it out. 

I realize I'm a nerd, but I love this stuff - seeing wildlife without "us" around.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on October 05, 2012, 04:44:04 pm
Nice pic.  Those cameras look like they are doing a great job.  Hey i love getting these pics too so i am nerded out also.  Looks like you have a great area to set the cams up in.  I look forward to seeing more of them .. Good job.

This thread has become my new Sunday ritual. Coffee, cerial or donuts, and critter cam. I was off yesterday and accidentally tuned in today. Never the less it was still fantastic!  I'm serious...

Post by: Guy1az on October 06, 2012, 10:12:21 am
Well thanks it is great to get feedback.  It takes a lot of time but it is all fun time.  Sometimes I get a couple hundred pic/videos a night and have to sort through them because not all are good. So I post only a very small percentage.  These cams are odd in that sometimes they work great and the next day they don't work at all....one cam will pick up something and another cam will be blank where I know something was.  My wife says it must be Ninja animals...so that's what we call them.
As a side note it is amazing how far these coyotes travel to take a dump on my driveway...I think they are trying to tell me something.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: john on October 06, 2012, 10:31:15 am
It takes a lot of trust and a feeling of safety for an animal to take a dump somewhere. They're vulnerable and not able to watch their back during the process. They feel your house is a safe place, thats all  ;D

I'm on the north side of Phx - 22nd Street & Deer Valley. We back up to Reach 11, The National Cemetary, BLM Land, And the Cave Butte Rec Area (that no one is allowed to go rec in - don't get me started...). After a full moon especially in the fall - the sidewalks look like Coyotes had Poopapalooza on a Saturday Night. If each Coyote leaves 3 deposits a night we probably have 3 or 4 dozen coming through here and they ALWAYS do it on the sidewalk.

This is why it is so hard to film bobcats...they are so reclusive especially in day time.  They are not like foxes or coyotes that just charge in...they slide to the side and just watch...I guess that's the nature of cats.  You can see this guy come in on the right of the screen and just sit and watch...not venturing into the open.

These javelina are something...the   last pig sniffed the camera like he wanted to eat it then just when the video stopped he grabbed the sandbag that was anchoring the tripod down flipping the camera on its back.  He then ripped open the sand bag with his teeth..only to find dirt inside.  He tore the hell out of that bag though...those teeth are formidable.

Hey Guy1az,

We have some herds that get as high as 12-15..that's really the most I have seen.   After that they  seem to join other herds to have babies to have babies.  They usually have one male they follow...he just goes and they follow him.

Those oinkers are pretty adaptable..  just about no matter the terrain.  You know many species seem to be spreading in range eastward. .Coyotes certainly, mountain lion sighting are up where they never were...I wonder why javelina don't seem to be moving easterly to any extent.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: RetroG on October 21, 2012, 04:46:29 pm
I don't know if they are moving easterly, but when we first moved into our house last year, they were out back in the wash every day (used to drive the dog nuts!).  Now I rarely see them, seems they aren't around as much the past few months.  I sure hear coyotes every night, but I don't think they are big enough to take down javelinas.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on October 21, 2012, 05:20:01 pm
We have a Jack Russell ( really a Parson's Russell) part of  the year and the javelina drive him crazy.  They don't back down from him in the window anyway...they come right up to the window like "whats your problem pal?"  and the javelina stare and he barks..drives me crazy sometimes.  I don't think they are moving east or at least I have seen no evidence of it... not really sure how far  east their range extends but  not far I would think.  Not really  sure how far north in az they extend.  We will have to ask some of those northern az guys that.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: JesseL on October 21, 2012, 06:05:30 pm
The only dog I ever knew who could come out of a scrap with javelina unscathed was a JRT.

The little guy was like a ninja - bouncing from the back of one javelina to the next, nipping their ears, faster than they could keep up. Amazing to watch.

Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on October 21, 2012, 06:42:04 pm
You have a JRT pegged exactly and I can certainly visualize what you are saying.  They are absolutely fearless... I saw ours back up a bobcat and get nose to nose with him ..I got to him before they got into it but he has no hesitation whatsoever.  Absolutely a great dog and very  loving, affectionate and dedicated to his family....but  fearless.

Post by: GTGallop on October 21, 2012, 10:22:06 pm
I don't know if they are moving easterly...

Probably not.  I know SW Texas and the Rio Grande Valley have Javalenas - or Collared Peccary as they are known back there.  I'm pretty sure that further east than San Antonio is ruled by those 400lb to 600lb wild boar.

Not really  sure how far north in az they extend.  We will have to ask some of those northern az guys that.

I'm a flatlander but I know some guys that hunt Javies.  They go camp up in the rim country to sleep where it is cooler and then go down to the floor where the Javalena live to hunt, so I'm assuming that they either don't like one or more of the conditions (altitude, cold, food, wind, difference in cover) up on the rim.

The only dog I ever knew who could come out of a scrap with javalina unscathed was a JRT.

I've seen Catahoula take on a full blown hog before.  You tube is full of videos of dogs working a hog.  But usually there are three or four dogs and one hog.  Not two hogs and one dog - Thats JRT territory for sure.  Terriers are like Marines.  They like to wake up early, dig a hole, and then go kill something - all before breakfast.

I wonder if we could, over the course of a couple years of this, chart the frequency of various species appearing during various times of the year.  I don't think it'd be useful, but it'd be interesting.

Related to that... you should throw out something for the birds.  Might get some predator/prey pics.   ;)

Of course that depends on how you feel about critters meeting their demise in your yard on a regular basis.

I would love to put something out to try to draw in a hawk.  I did put out that dead bird that flew into the front porch glass...

I increased the length of the video and added sound....you can at least hear the crickets..these kit foxes are pretty quiet.

Those Kit foxes sure are active in your area. I've personally never seen one in the wild, they sure are neat little critters.

I have lived in the house about 15 years and never ever saw one until I  put the trail cams out.  I did not even know such a thing existed till I saw them on the cams and looked them up to see what they were. They are referenced as being small and able to hunt rocky areas that coyotes are unable to plus being very very reclusive.

This kit fox was checking out the trail cam last night.

These guys know exactly what doors I use and where I might appear.  They always watch this door on the front porch and you can hear me exit the door and come out...they know what points I use in the house and what I don't.

These bobcats are the most elusive to get on a trail cam..for me anyway.  They do not use trails and have no set schedule or predictability.  Any time I get one on film I think it is great.  I am not sure what he is doing in the first video..stretching maybe but you can get a good look at him in the second video.

I always wondered why these guy did not bump into each other so I guess they do.  The kit fox heard of smelled this coyote approx. 10 seconds before he came barreling through....pretty good if he was running that whole time.

My son and I went on a Jeep ride in the desert east of Gold Canyon north of the 60. We parked and took a little hike and I spotted these guys on the hill ahead of us. Probably about 100-150 yards.  Two Bighorns. One ram one ewe. Too bad I only had my iPhone.  The zoom is maxed on the second photo.

Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on November 15, 2012, 02:18:34 pm
Those foxes in daylight are very rare.  It is amazing what is is going on outside not 15 feet from where I sleep at night.  Last night they were using the walkway along the house like a road...foxes, coyotes and javelina.  I have gotten a lot of pack rats on cam also..which is the reason they are here except the javelina.  The mule deer are really unpredictable as they forage wherever they want and beside the trail in the front yard I have no clue as to where to put a trail cam for them.  The bobcats are the hardest....I just have to get lucky on those.  Glad you hear  you like seeing the pics as that keeps me going.

Post by: altsehastiin on November 15, 2012, 03:38:36 pm
I've lived in Arizona most of my life, and I had never seen a kit fox.  Then, about a month ago, I was up in Madera Canyon in the Santa Rita Mountains south of Tucson at a cabin for an annual event with some friends.  I left at about 10PM, and was driving down the road when this animal jumps out in front of me and starts running down the road in front of the car.  At first I thought it was a juvenile coyote, but it had really big pointy ears and a bushy tail with a black stripe, and it didn't lope like a coyote, it sort of hopped along.  Then another one comes out and joins it.  They ran along in front of me for what must have been a quarter of a mile.

This is an amazing place we live in.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on November 15, 2012, 04:00:32 pm
There are some big horns northwest of Tucson on a very high area called Ragged Top...they are very reclusive and come down in elevation to have babies..whatever they are called...then they go back up to the top.  Access is pretty restricted to that area.  You can see that area from I10 and naturally it is the range with the ragged tops on them.  Glad you guys like the video....it is pretty interesting every morning ..you just never know what will appear.

This is not really a trail cam photo.... This wonderful animal belongs to me, and it was on a camping trip near the coast, and there were trails. ;-)  He was as "rescue" in the San Francisco bay area when I lived up there.  He is the most loyal "pet" you could ever ask for. I have had him since he was 4 years old.  Wolfgang....

He actually loves his leash.....It means he gets to walk and work.  Out there.... had to worry about him getting away from the campground and some poor old lady thinking he was wild! 

That day was odd to him as he was such a "city dog".  I broke out a hot dog to feed to him, accidentally dropped it on the ground, and it had dirt on it.... He looked at the hotdog, then at me and started to whine and would not eat it. Took it to the water and cleaned it off, handed it to him and he was happy.  :facepalm 

He has learned a lot growing up including how to open doors.  When we are not home, we works on the door handles until they have teeth marks in them, and will actually turn them.  Sometimes a visitor gets a special surprise in the bathroom.

Damn Tenderfoot. ;-)

I took these two with a hand held camera off the back porch this morning...I went to check the trail cams and they jumped out of the bushes.

I placed a trail cam off my property today in an effort to get something different.  According to DNR there are approximately 70 mountain lions in the Santa Catalina and Rincon mountains here in Tucson.   I know there are some here in the Tucson Mountains as I have seen one (on the front porch) and my long suffering wife has seen one crossing the road but that was years ago. Anyway my biggest concern is someone will steal the camera.  I placed it as to my best guess where it will result in some pics but its just a guess.  We shall see...I  don't want my camera stolen...maybe I am being too cynical.  I put my contact info on the tripod....but I don't think that would certainly deter anyone...we shall see I guess.   It is only about a mile from the house so I can check it often.

Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on November 27, 2012, 04:47:35 pm
I saw that.. What a shame they only got his tail.  There is a lot of controversary about what kind of tail it is.  They must have not used a trail cam before because you learn early on to give the cam every chance possible.  That means you set it up to give the cam depth and therefore time to react.  They had it set up with only a left to right exposure.. By the time it reacted he was almost out of the picture.  That's a shame as it would have been a tremendous shot.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on November 29, 2012, 02:03:39 pm
All I got on my cam was me picking up the cam.  I had to put it in a place I was sure no one else would wander by and that made it pretty remote...evidently too remote for any wildlife also.  I only gave it one day so I guess that is not a good test.  To tell you the truth it was far more work for what I would probably get outside my house.  I was worried about someone stealing the cam..which I have heard happens a lot.  I guess I do not have much faith in my fellow man...guilty.

This deer was in the front yard last week and I am posting it to show just how much they stop and just listen and watch.  He does not move  much just checking things out..listening and watching...something I find hard to do and should do more of when hunting.  We have ten million other things running through our  minds when hunting...these guys do not...just making sure things are safe for them.  I will try and watch and listen more when in the field no matter what I am doing...like these guys do.

The bobcat in the pic above walked by that trail cam...skirted the bare rocky area going way out of the way not to cross it.  He then came up behind this cam through the brush...they are certainly far more wary than everything else. I think this is a great video though.

If you look at the video he looks so athletic i guess for lack of a better word.  I had never put a trail cam at spot before and I remember when I checked it that morning thinking I better move this cam because I will never get anything here.  You just can never tell.

Looks like he is still around...this is in the front yard by a deer trail that lots of things use.   He looks pretty intent.

I did not take this pic and have no idea who did.  It was published in a Tucson newspaper some time ago.  He must have been really trying to get away from something.

Never had deer react to the trail cam like this before...I did put it in new spot but  maybe they will get used to it.  I but more  brush around it so perhaps it won't be so obvious.

I have not spotted him at all... Maybe he grew out of it.  I have not see any of the javelina babies either.  That is usually not a good sign.  Most of the time I see them growing as they make their rounds but not this time.. It is a tough life out there.

If you have sound you can hear that unique popping sound javelina use as a warning sound when they get agitated or fight with each other which they do all the time.

Very cool.  Not often you catch a bird in flight.  I was mesmerized yesterday by a pair of red tailed hawks circling and riding the thermals off South Mountain looking for targets of opportunity in suburbia.   
Title: Re: Trail Cams

Yes I love to catch something in flight like that.. Especially when they flare and float.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: coelacanth on February 03, 2013, 07:50:35 pm
Yup.  They make it look completely effortless as they spiral across the landscape.   The area I was in has a big wash running off the mountain and through a city park and residential neighborhood and they often circle above that looking for rabbits and stray kitties.   As the wash flattens out coming off the mountain it gets to be about 40 - 50 yards across and anything caught out in the open there is easy pickins'.

Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on February 06, 2013, 06:27:45 am
Yes they love those small dogs and cats.  Take a look at the trail cams out there as there is a whole range of them from cheap to incredibly expensive.  They even have a model that emails them to your email address automatically. Pretty pricey though.  There are no flash models and even high def video models.  It all depends on what you want to spend.  Most will give you decent day still shots.  To freeze day and night movement and get decent night video you have to spend more.

Coelacanth you were asking about the Kit Fox that had the funky broken looking tail...I think this is him.  Take a look at his  tail and you can see a very odd type marking exactly where that nasty looking area was.  Perhaps he broke it some how and it healed back.  What do you think?
Title: Re: Trail Cams

That does look like the one with the funky tail.  At least the joint seems to be in the same spot as the fox with that trauma tail.

It was a very wet miserable night last night here in Tucson.  This bobcat was walking with something in front of it which I could not quite tell what it was.  I was surprised that a bobcat would be that close to something without pursuing it.  It knocked into the camera setting it slightly askew.

The wild cats are very active.  Even feral housecats and farm cats never have the weight problems we see with pets and house cats.  I imagine if you could track the movements and times of these guys it would be very surprising.

I have been seeing this guy a lot and it appears he has suffered some damage to his right eye.  In every photo from whatever angle it appears to not be working properly.

I have only had experience with Bushnell, Stealth and  Cuddeback cams.   My first trail cam was a Bushnell Trophy cam which was a less expensive one at the time.  Bear in mind that the less expensive cam you get the less performance you will get which is pretty much true of anything.  If you are like me I tend to buy the cheapest if I am interested in something to see if  it keeps my interest then but a more expensive unit.

As I am sure you guys know coyotes have a very complicated social structure.  They  mate for life etc.  and have a very involved pack dominance ritual some of which you can see in the next few pics.  The first pic shows this guy seeing some of his  pack buds coming up the  trail he is looking at.

I have seen the same in Tucson and it is a shock.  I saw one briskly walking on the sidewalk in a residential neighborhood no way near any desert areas. I put the window down slowed down and said "hey pal where ya headed?"  He did not even break stride just glanced my way slightly and kept going. No respect.

I've seen a pair of them stalking my neighbors while they walked their (ratlike, toy-size) dogs, I've chased them off after spotting them watching my son play on his swingset, and I've seen them kill more of my chickens than they can carry in broad daylight.

This momma bobcat would spend hours on the roof until she spotted a rabbit.
Sometimes, she'd carry one up with her.  While she hunted from the 14' roof, the kittens would climb mesquite trees and fall asleep.

A herd  of 10-12 of these guys come through and just shuts everything else out....nothing else comes near these guys...there are like locust eating everything.  I think if one of  them died they would eat him. I used to have some huge cactus and these guys just ate  them all.

Not sure if it is a good thing or not but that does not matter as I don't get a vote.  Maybe they will eat some of the rabbits thst keep activating the trail cams.  I have read where the coyote population mirrors the rabbit population cycle and there are tons of them around this year.

This bobcat was along the trail in the front yard last night..he is going traveling at right angles to the trail...you never know where these guys will move which make them very difficult to get on cam. This camera claims to get color in IR mode which most others don't do..it kinda works and kinda not.

Speaking of squirrells.  I was out hiking Thunderbird mountain on Friday and I damn near stepped on this little guy while I was running.  He had stopped and messed around with that bush in the foreground for a good 30 seconds while I fumbled to get my phone out and get a pic.

That little path gets a ton of traffic.  I have never seen different animals run into each other there but I guess their hearing is too good for that.  It would be interesting though.

This is a good example of how their hair get all raised up when they are fighting or in danger.  I could  hear them last night fighting among themselves...which it seems they spend a lot of time doing.  Before this herd of about 10 came into the area there were two coyotes hunting the  hillside. They simply moved  off when the herd arrived...they tend to displace anything else that is in the area.  Nobody wants to deal with them.

We've got a bumper crop of rabbits up my way this spring as well.  I'm scaring more of them out of the bushes when I'm spraying/cleaning up around the acreage lately.  Must mean the predators are fewer this year or maybe its just that the rabbits have done really well.

You are right coelencanth... They are ugly.  They have been knocking over my big green Waste Management bin on pickup days and making a huge mess.  I wondered how they were able to knock it over so a few weeks ago I was able to watch them do it.  It takes a pretty big javelina to do it.  On the side opposite the wheels there is a short bar running horizontally not far from the bottom.  They hook their nose under this bar and lift.. This  lets them use the wheels as a pivot point and over it goes... Then they party.  It makes a huge mess. 
I have started spraying the botton of the bin with any kind of citrus scented air freshener (many animals hate  the scent of citrus) and that seems to be working.

Last night after dinner we had some chicken bones left and my wife and I got to talking..as we are known to do.  I bet if I placed these chicken bones on top of our trash container inside the enclosure we have for it with the gate closed it would not be touched.  The wall on this enclosure are about 5.5 feet high.  This is by the garage and we have never seen any activity on this side of the house.  She was sure it would be gone so we bet dinner out at her or my favorite restaurant tomorrow night.

Dinner is at 6:00 tomorrow night at Vivace...her favorite restaurant.

No deer or bobcat pics in quite a while.  This usually happens when we change seasons.  I still get plenty of coyotes and Kit Foxes but I hate to post the same old thing.  Tucson.don showed me the rat traps he uses so I have been using that to put our  mice or rats.  The first mouse was dragged off by a chipmunk of all things.
I have to figure out where the bobcats and deer went.

I came around a curve just 1/4 from my house and ran over a good sized western diamondback yesterday.  Both tires on that side rolled over him as I could feel it.  I think you have to physically run over their head before they get DRT (dead right there as the saying goes).  If you run over the rest of them they seem to struggle off and perhaps die later.  This guy was gone a few minutes later when I went by so I guess I missed his head.
I have also seen more than usual so far this year.

I'm a seasoned snake-runner-overer from back in the boonies.  A snakes body is designed to flex.  They feel the pain of a car but it doesn't harm them long term.  Probably bruises tissue but they make a full recovery.  If you want to kill one you have to hit the brakes (pretty hard) as you go over them.  The skidding tears them in half.  A lot easier than hitting the head.

Give it a shot!

We lived in a house where drain entry became an issue.  I started pouring a few ounces of bleach mixed with a cup of water into each drain late at night and closing/capping the drains overnight.  The problem went away.

I have been stung a few times in bed.  They are crawling on the floor then they crawl up a sheet or blanket and next thing I know I feel them crawling on me.  Then I move or brush them away and get stung.. It gets old.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: coelacanth on May 04, 2013, 03:16:08 pm
We had some in our previous house in Chandler - apparently not as much of a problem as you have but enough to get our attention.  Commercial pest control seems to be a joke in poor taste as they get you on a monthly schedule and the problem almost goes away most of the time.   We finally tried a do it yourself approach.   Mixed up about ten pounds of a diatomaceous earth and boric acid mixture.  Applied it liberally all around the foundation of the house and then used an old time garden duster ( basically a bicyle pump with a canister and a fan nozzle attached ) to shoot the stuff into crevices both inside and outside the house.  It's safe for children and pets but the creepy crawlies can't stand it.  Two weeks later we could not find a single scorpion on the whole property ( and not much of anything else with six or eight legs either ) .     

Rain will diminish its effectiveness somewhat but reapplication is no big deal.  If you doubt its effectiveness capture a scorpion and puff some of that mixture on him and watch what happens.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on May 04, 2013, 04:06:12 pm
I need to do that also.   Commercial bug people even don 't think they could address the problem.. Although they didn't really say why.  The other day I saw one run into the base of the tv ( a scorpion not a bug guy) There were actotal of four hiding in the dark there up in the corner.  I have heard that they cannot be exposed to daylight for long.  I have used a black light to spot them and that works well.  I always get them when it get very hot or very cold outside.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: coelacanth on May 04, 2013, 08:15:23 pm
You can get the diatomaceous earth from anywhere that handles a full line of pool supplies and the boric acid from places like Lowe's or Home depot in their pest control section.  I mixed it up in a five gallon pail with a lid (  trust me - don't breathe the dust - ack   :no ).  The garden duster might be more trouble to find but some kind of plastic squeeze bottle might work if you can't find the duster.   I hope it works for you.

Really isn't much of a story.....When I was younger I was hiking with my boy scout troop and we saw some of those flying around....Troop Leader told us what they were and said that they would only do that if they saw something that was dead and usually land if the suspect something is about to die. One hour later....One of the mother****ers landed in front of me.

It is more comical than anything...But when you are 10 and that shit happens...Tends to scar you for life.

Yep, the vent pipes on the roof are open to anything that can crawl in, or fit through a 1 1/2" opening.  You have to put screen over the opening and use a band clamp to secure.  Or you can manage them on the ground with the chemicals previously mentioned and hope none slip by.

Every time I think I have a general idea when animals move..nottt...I was backing out of the driveway this morning at around 11:15 and there was a deer in the front yard not ten feet from the car munching on something.
You would think by that time they would be where they want to be for the day..sitting in the shade  taking it easy...go figure.

I have a little "electric chair" powered by 4 C batteries that zaps any mice or  rats that enter.  Naturally the pigs could not leave that alone..they got the peanuts inside....I just wonder if their  noses got zapped when they stuck them in.

I came down the driveway this morning and as I pulled onto the road a young mule deer was lying alongside the road.  When seeing me he tried to stand but I could see his left rear foot was broken in two about 6-8 inches above his hoof.  He repeatedly tried to stand to flee but crashed back down each time.  I could see both ends of the white bone sticking out joined by skin only.
Having never seen this before I was not sure what to do.  Last year someone put a deer out of his misery with handgun and it became a major issue.  I really don 't know my neighbors very well.. So not sure what they would think about s gunshot in the canyon.  Anyway I called Fish& Game and after much confusion .. On their part.. Someone finally called me back about 6 hours later.  I just did not want it to suffer. The Game Warden asked me to verify he was still there and call him back.  Having only been able to see him roll... Pitifully... I was sure he would be.  I just got back and phoned him... The deer was gone.  He said he had seen  them recover with those injuries.  I guess but it is hard to imagine.  He pointed out that he may have more extensive injuries .. From a vehicle impact.. Than  I could see.  Anyway his will to survive got him up and gone from the area.  He faces a tough time ... He needs to travel to eat and avoid predators.
I remember one time when out quail hunting I jumped a deer.. When I watched him run off his left rear leg flopped loosely up his side and onto his back as he ran.
The Game Warden said they try to let nature take its course whenever possible.

Its a damned shame we can't put down an animal that's obviously badly injured without everyone getting their panties in a bunch about it.   :cursing    Fluffing stupid.

My Jr High Coach hit a deer on the way to school one morning (1986ish).  He was out in a fairly rural area with no homes near by.  The deer was mortally wounded and intermingled with parts from the front of his old Ford pick up.  He pulls out a .357 from under the seat and dispatches the animal.

Apparently some passer by saw Coach stuck on the road and called the police for help.  Coach, thinking nothing of it, VOLUNTEERED that he put the animal down.  The cop wasn't going to ask because the deer was fairly mangled but upon hearing of the use of a fire arm he took a different approach.

The cop cuffed and stuffed him.  Charges were filed and Coach lost his truck (totaled any way but no insurance pay out now), his revolver, and his hunting license.  I'm not sure about jail time but I know there was a LOT of community service and next year he was gone, teaching somewhere else so I suspect he lost his job too.

I would hate to see a suffering animal and my heart would go out to it, but in no way will I shoot or otherwise mercy kill a wounded animal.  Too many crazy people devoid of common sense looking for a reason to raise an issue.  I don't even shoot carcasses I find in the wild in case someone recovers my round and wants to blame me for killing some maggot infested deer carcass.

Those on the left are animal and those on the right are the city of Tucson.  I get lots of pics as those city lights come off and on.  Even when the brush blows in front of them it takes a pic.
You just never know with these cams .  Last night I had a bobcat walk directly in front of the cam which filmed it but the IR did not function.  You can just barely make it out to be a bobcat.  I checked the batteries and thry are good... Frustrating.

You would think there would but I still have a ton of them.  The rabbits trip the trail cams all the time and  when I see them out they run about 15 feet and freeze.. I can t believe they last a day.  Tons of pack rats and mice.  I don't think I have any pocket gophers.  Lots of chipmunks.

Could just be a cactus thorn in the pad of his foot.  That will work itself out in a few days and he'll likely chew out any infection.
His gait (cadence and speed) looked healthy and he didn't seem too skinny.  Ears were perked and as much as could be seen, he looked alert.  I'm thinking he's healthy with a minor boo boo.

I put the trial cam down on the steep  hill behind my house on a path I think that bobcats use.  I could not believe a mule deer as I almost broke my neck trying to get the camera down there is is so steep.

The only thing I really worry about, besides the ever present rattlesnakes, is a mountain lion as we had one on the porch about six years ago.
As for rattlesnakes a friend of mine was struck twice while playing golf in Tucson.  He had one hell of a time with that.  What he went through I don 't ever want to come close to.

Yup.  There have been lots of them this year.  Its weird though, some are big enough to fly by now and others look like they just hatched in the last couple of weeks.  Quite a disparity in size and development, all in the same neighborhood.

I know this is  not outdoor related...but anyway:
This is our Jack Russell  which is really technically a Parsons Russell ....they have longer legs generally.  Anyway he spends half  his time in Michigan and half in Arizona..which let the record show he  has it made.  Anyway he is in Michigan now with my wife where he waits for the mailman each day.  He can hear the unique sound of his vehicle a long way off and he waits for him.  Sometimes after he grabs the mail the mailman  gives him a dog biscuit through the slot after the mail has been thoroughly chewed up.  This is an incredible little guy as I suppose most dog owner think their dogs are incredible but he truly is...he is absolutely fearless.  Last  week  while out walking the dog my wife was set upon by two loose 80lbs bull dogs. To condense what happened he sent them both fleeing and bleeding back to their  house.....where their got  behind their owners. Gotta like a dog that defends himself and my  wife.  Like I said absolutely fearless.
By the way when he meets the mailman outside he loves him as he does all  people...but that  mail is intruding on his turf I guess.

"The blue inside corner of the mouth of an Anolis onca. Similar features have been reported in males of other desert lizards, and it has even been suggested that the intensity of the color correlates with the bite force of an individual. Whether that hypothesis applies for this species remains to be tested."

I watched one out the window( a roadrunner) catch a small bird of some sort and by grabbing him by the foot and swinging his head into a rock killed him.. He must have bashed him 30 times against the rock.  Then took him off to eat I would imagine.

Hey Jerry, imagine capturing one of these on your trail cams?  Its the Jaguar photographed in the Santa Rita mountains south of Tucson. I guess they really are moving up north.

Wow that is something !! You know i can see Santa Ritas  from here.  I have done a lot of hiking there especially around the Elephant Head area.  It would be something to get those pics.  Now you have me thinking Bill.
There is also a very small goat herd on some very very high terrain just north of where we used to shoot
at the  Manville road site. You can even see it from the freeway and is called Ragged Top which is how it looks at a distance.  The goats stay very high unless they are giving birth in the spring.  I have been to the base of the area and it is marked as restricted .
 Maybe it would be worth taking a look at the Santa Rita area.. Be great to hit a pic of those guys.  I would just hate to get my cameras stolen.

This guy is looking pretty skinny as they usually do at this time of year. I will be glad when the rains come hopefully next week.  It seems most of the wildlife have changed their habits drastically....I have not seen a Kit Fox in weeks and the deer are not using the trails they used to use.

Sorry to hear about your dilemma there Jerry.  That's why I'd like to have a decent generator-not just a camping generator. 
And not so much for the comfort aspects but to keep the refrigerators and freezer running.

I need one also.  Last time this happened I was in Vegas and my wife was at home and trapped in the house with no car since it was in the garage with a double door that was too heavy for her to lift... I need to at least get that on battery.

Still at the bar .. This karoke is killing me .

What's this??? looks like a normal dog!!  There are no stays here no dogs or cats...they get eaten.  The odd part is he is using a trail that coyotes and deer normally use.   We have never ever seen a stray  dog or cat here...ever. I have no clue.

These guys are  super vigilant.  It is funny  but they know exactly which doors I use of both porches and they lock onto those doors when around.  I have only seen them rarely but they keep track of and are on the look out for me always. I guess this is there turf and they better know it.

The dog looks a lot like a Rhodesian Ridgeback (I have one) at that angle and they are pretty tough beasts (bred to hunt lions in Africa). The hound in them will cause them to chase/track prey (they are scent AND sight hounds)...perhaps one of your neighbors have one and this guy went "into the zone" on a little tracking mission???

Quite possible XD ... Maybe he wanted  to walk on the wild side for the weekend.  Now that you mention it he does look like a Rhodesian Ridgeback.  So maybe he is laying on a rug somewhere thinking about his outing.  I certainly hope he made it home ok as he looks like he could take care of himself.

They are big, powerful, headstrong dogs.  They need something to do or they will become destructive ( digging, chewing stuff up, jumping the fence, etc. )  Spend some time around one before you spend money on one.

They are willful and very smart dogs, we are on our second one and probably won't ever own another breed.  They also need their exercise and when they get it, like any dog will be less apt to chew, dig or have other destructive behaviors.

The "headstrong" piece comes from their smarts - ridgebacks have been known to train their owners rather than the other way around. 

I agree about spending some time with one first or at a breeders to see if its a good fit. For our family and lifestyle it is THE perfect dog.

I was looking out the bedroom window yesterday and saw a coyote standing about 10 feet from the house staring at something for a long long time.  I followed his gaze to this deer that was standing absolutely having seen the coyote.  This is a steep wash that narrows down to a point and the deer was trying to walk out on the side of the wash not on the bottom.  There was another  coyote I caught a glimpse of on the other side of the wash that the deer had obviously seen also.  I think they had a plan.   After standing stock still for a long time he finally turned around and went back the way he came back into the canyon. 
After I took the pic I noticed that large lump on his left side.  It does not show on the other side of his body.  Maybe some time of wound but it appears to be raised up off his skin.

This guy is back.  At least he is wearing a collar so he has a home.  From what you guys tell me he is probably a Rhodesian Ridgeback and from what he looks like I think he could take care of himself out there..unless he gets outnumbered.  He appears to be healthy and in shape.

They were bred to hunt lions in Africa and keep them and bay them long enough for the hunter to get to the lion and finish it off.  There is a video of one on youtube toying with a badger, the badger is fighting for its life and the Ridgeback is playing around.  These dogs are fearless and yeah, they can handle themselves.  I believe there is a firefighter in Tucson who uses them to hunt lions in southern AZ and I know people use them in the south for hunting hogs.

Not to split this off into a Windows 8 discussion, but I too made that jump two weeks ago.
Took me a bit of getting use to but once you wrap your head around the fact that it is pointless technology just for technology's sake - then it is pretty easy to grasp.  They just made it more like one of their dorky phones so people will buy more windows phones.  Sooo glad my end user experience could be of some use to them.

I understand your pain.  Its really too bad they had to change the windows software to emulate the mobile devices.  I loved windows XP, then hated windows Vista but I'm now using windows 7 and really like it.  I tried windows 8 and have no love for it.

It seems they have a dud almost every other time they come out with a new windows operating system.

Looks like a Cooper's Hawk -

"Adults have short broad wings and a long round-ended tail with dark bands. They have a dark cap, blue-grey upperparts and white underparts with red bars. They have red eyes and yellow legs. Adult females are much larger. This bird is somewhat larger than a Sharp-shinned Hawk, but smaller than a Northern Goshawk. It appears long-necked in flight.
Their breeding habitat is forested areas across southern Canada, the United States and northern Mexico. They build a stick nest in a large tree.
They are permanent residents in most of the United States. Northern birds migrate to the southern U.S. and Mexico.
These birds surprise and capture small and medium-sized birds from cover or while flying quickly through dense vegetation. They also eat small mammals such as mice and other small rodents. Other possibilities are lizards, frogs, snakes and large insects. They often pluck the feathers off their prey on a post or other perch."

Actually, I've seen more raccoons in Southern Arizona than I've seen bobcats even though both of them live down here.  Its actually kind of amazing the amount of wildlife that exists down here in the Sonoran desert.

Raccoons need a water source in order to survive.  But with all the golf courses and pools, might not be as much of an issue.

Those bobcats are looking slender and lean.  I thought they had a little stockier build and shorter tail.  I'm wondering if you might have some Ocelot's up your way.  Maybe?  Maybe not...?

The markings are less distinct, but you know with any patterned animal, those vary geographically.

Coues deer are small.  A big one might weigh, what, 110 pounds?   :shrug   A big bobcat could certainly take down a fawn or a wounded/crippled adult.   Great pics, BTW.  Glad to see the kit foxes are still around.

Yeah, it looked like it was either a full moon or very close to it.  When I took the trash out last night I heard the yotes singing up in the Sacaton mountain range behind my house as well. I really like hearing them for some reason. I guess I find it comforting wild things live near by.

It was on my front porch.  Actually I had just gotten the camera that day.  It is a Nikon coolpix p520.  It is not an slr but has a built in 42x zoom plus HD video.  It is larger like an slr not like the small digitals.

I put one of those really heavy square blocks of seed out a few years ago for the quail.  The quail never got near it.  A herd of javelina found it and bit into it repeatedly... It started being flipped over and over with them biting pieces off if it.   They walked it around the yard biting on it and flipping it over finally wedging it against the base of a palo verde where they finished it off.  They fought furiously among thenselves the whole time.  Actually it was
pretty funny watching them them from  window to window.

Coyotes have a pretty structured/regimented social structure in which new or lower ranking members must show submission or be reprimanded and put in their place.  This sequence shows a pretty good example of how they cower and put their tail between their legs and then all is good.

Nice pics.   How wary are they of you?  Obviously they see you around and know your scent but they are creatures of habit and if you're not perceived as an imminent threat I imagine they might well ignore you if you're 50 yards away.   
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on September 04, 2013, 04:39:20 pm
I almost never see them.  I can see them out the windows but rarely.  They know exactly what doors I use and watch them diligently.  At the click of a door they are gone without me even getting a glimpse.  At this cam they can hear my tv but they are used to that so they hunt the hillside and ignore it. I have never seen a Kit Fox in the flesh.  There is a lot going on out there that we have no idea of.  They have no tolerance for my presence at all although must get my scent around the cams.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: coelacanth on September 04, 2013, 11:05:07 pm
 :hmm   Weird.   I see them all the time around here and have had them go trotting by down the middle of the street no more than 30-40 yards away.

Granted, they were heading somewhere and didn't seem inclined to come over so I could scratch behind their ears but they weren't freaked out and hauling a** either. 
Title: Re: Trail Cams

I rarely get anything on the cams during full day especially this time of  year.  I often wonder if I could find a den or at least a spot where the coyotes hole up during the heat of the day.  There are many huge steep washes in this canyon that are so steep it is almost impossible to walk down and I have tried.  They are deep enough for the rains to never get up the sides and would be a perfect place for coyote or Kit fox to seek shade.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: coelacanth on September 05, 2013, 09:00:49 pm
Yup.  Even a depression or an overhang of some kind on the shady side of a slope is enough for them.  They blend in so well with the landscape you'll almost never see them unless they are moving.

I was in the garage today with the doors open.....radio on etc.  I looked out 20 feet away and there was a mule deer doe with a young one just bigger than a German Shepard lying under the shade tree.  She  just pointed those big old ears at me and I left them alone. Beautiful.

I saw one of these guys feasting on something in the middle of the road last night. He didn't want to move until I decided I would take his picture, then he ran off behind some bushes. I also saw 4 crossing the street by my house the other evening. I was able to get a real good look at then, but again as soon as my phone was in my hand they ran off.

Cover and concealment - protection.

I'm not sure that's it.  Cattle will hug a wall like that even when going to and from the pasture to the barn.  I don't think they are concerned about any of those things in that environment - but then again, that assumes I have some insight into the thought process of cattle.   Never mind.   :facepalm

I am sure that is what it is.  Don't know if you are seeing them up there but for the last two months or so down here in Sierra Vista we have been having the locust/grasshopper infestation we seem to have every couple of years.  Big ass critters all over the place, crossing the roads getting smashed.  Out shooting at the range they are all over, makes for great sniping with .22's. Anyway, a border Patrol buddy of mine says the coyotes are "eating them like crazy" right now.  I never even thought of that but it makes sense and the bigger ones would be a considerable bite for an average coyote.  I haven't seen it personally but yesterday out at the range I saw a pile of coyote crap that was full of bug exoskeletons so I guess they are eating them?

Something else cool to watch is the brown trout in the east fork of the Black River in the White Mountains.  They know this is the time of year for fat grasshoppers trying to fly across the stream and they will actually jump out of the water to try and get them.

I think I've finally come to the conclusion that there is not a good side on a javelina.    They are just butt-ugly - coming or going, right or left, up or down.  They're borderline cute for about a month or so after they're born but its all downhill from there.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on October 15, 2013, 07:11:29 am
I would have to agree with that.  I am hoping for more bobcat pics.
The cams are on their own for a couple days as I am at the Grand Canyon for a few days...23 degrees this morning.

Yes that's why I posted that particular video.  They do that whenever they feel threatened or about to fight.  I guess it makes them appear larger or whatever.  I have seen it a lot but never so obvious as that.  Great observation.

I don't use anything.  The last pic I posted is of an existing trail in the front yard that was there before I built the house. I seem to be in an area that they use to move about and in and out of the canyon.  I have often thought of planting something that deer might eat  but have not as of yet.

I went out to check the trail cams this morning and found myself interrupting the movement of two mule deer,  a coyote and way to close to a herd of javelina.  The deer just looked at me, the coyote keep moving and the javelina could not quite figure out exactly where I was.   They cannot see worth a damn but I found  myself in the middle of about 5 of them....finally made a few noises and they headed out.....fortunately not in my direction...pretty tense there for a moment.  I would really  hate to make the news with a  javelina bite.

When they run short of human arms thy eat freaking anything.  There are a ton of the dumbest cottontails here I have ever seen.  When i see them in the yard they run about 10 yards then freeze on open ground and they must think they are hiding.  Tons of field mice and pack rats here also.

One of the funniest things I've ever seen was roadrunner chasing a housecat along the top of a block fence.  The cat came out and saw the roadrunner and decided to stalk him.  Took him a few seconds to realize that the roadrunner decided housecat was definitely on the menu.  :rotfl

Roadrunners are  pretty efficient and no nonsense. I have seen them capture a small bird and then grab them by the lower part of the body and whip them around to smash their head  on a rock... He must have smashed him 20 times.  Very very effective.

Lol ... They are ugly.  Very utilitarian ... They remind me of a little tank ... They just plow through everything. There was s herd off the back porch a while ago and one of the babies started to whine as he got seperated from his mother.  Sounded just like a predator call.  The mother came crashing through the brush popping her jaws mad as hell to get ger baby pig.  I guess moms are the same everywhere.

I think it is ...all the animals look pretty good.  Often those little javelina get taken by coyotes or bobcats but this guy seems to be hanging in there.  They will fight each other furiously over food but I have seen the babies take food out of the mouths of the big males and they don 't object at all.

I saw this morning  that Bushnell has just come out with a new HD cam that sends pics to your computer wirelessly.  Pretty nice if you had one way out in the booners but then again I have no idea of the range involved.  The farthest of mine is only about  20 steps from the house so it is not really practical for me.  They are asking $600 for them which is pretty pricey plus some sort wireless charge from Bushnell.

Oh Man! $600 plus some sort of data plan would make for a very pricy trail cam. I'd really hate for that trail cam to walk off.

Great pics as usual.  You seem to be getting a lot more head-on shots .  .  .  did you change the position of the camera?
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on January 26, 2014, 07:15:55 am
I don 't change them as much as I should but in this little alley way I had to.  There are different ways these cams illuminate at night.  The cam I had in there emitted a glow which I found they were avoiding by walking around that little alley way. I had to take everything out of there for them to become comfortable in there again . I purchased a new camera that is called "Black Flash " that emits no flash and no  glow at all.
Seems to be working.  The daylight pics are good. Still undecided about the night video it takes.  Very astute observation on your part coelacanth .

Good one.  Do you have any domestic animals?  Dogs - cats - birds - you know, the sort of animals that might be aware of all the other animals poking about outside your house?
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on January 31, 2014, 10:14:47 pm
No .... There are no strays or outside animals where I live. They all get eaten.  I do have a Jack Russell .... technically a longer legged Parsons Russell...just part time.  He never goes outside not being on a leash as he is absolutely fearless and will take on anything. My wife encountered a herd of javelina (15) yesterday on the northside of town by her work and it was all she could do to hold him.  All 15 were in the open crossing the road and they all stood their ground popping their teeth.  He would have been in the middle of them in a heartbeat and no good could come of that.  It was funny as she was slowly backing up she heard the voice of a neigbor lady she  had not see say "don 't leave yet"!  She had been standing on a very high cement post.. She most have been motivated.
When he is at our home he sits for hours staring out the windows and he usually sees something.

Guy.. a WAY over due thank you for this thread.. you really have captured our Sonoran desert.. Before back issues stopped it, my number one activity was trail running, and backpacking.. Starting in 1979 till about eight yes ago I lived for what you've captured..

An outstanding thread that's so good it's up there with my pain meds, and or a couple of stiff drinks for stress relief.. Thanks!

I am always impressed at how much time these guys take to just listen, look around and using their nose to find out what they need to know.  Just to stand still and listen and look before they move.

It's odd as this camera is different from all the rest because it takes color at night.  To do that it has a bright flash for a micro second.  Deer in particular will avoid it entirely if given a choice.  I have had it on a well used trail and they quit using that trail for a while.  Others it does not bother af all.

This is a lousy picture but shows something I have noticed.  There is a whole group of these guys that show a unique marking on their back..a thin black mark right above their left front leg...I have seen up to five at a time that have this marking.  Some are more pronounced than others but they all must be related somehow.

Hey Jerry, is that another temporary trailcam on a tripod in the picture?  The entrance to your house seems to be as much a hotbed of activity as the trails along the sides of your house.

I'm looking at that ''line'' you noticed above the front legs, thought it might be shadows, but your right Jerry, looks like  black line on their coat.. the did seemed to show it both sides..

In 36 years of outdoor AZ I've only seen two Mt Lions, and that included a bike camping trip to Organ Pipe (Growler Mt's.. well named hi population) where I was specifically looking to see, and photograph one..

One of the sightings was in the Tucson Mt's (East side by the DPS/DOC academy, an hour before dawn) so perhaps?..

Couldn't see the snake well enough to ID it but its definitely not Crotalus.  Doesn't look like a king snake either.  Its weird that the thing is right in that game trail alongside your house though.  Most snakes will avoid game trails frequented by predators.   :confused

Yeah not sure what is going on with that video.  When I play it on utube it is pretty clear but really fuzzy on azgo.  I had a hard time even getting it to run at all on azgo and you are right it is very difficult to see.  That is a high def cam too.  My computer is really acting funky starting today so hey maybe that's it.  I would not have posted it if I had known it viewed so poorly...you can't hardly tell what it is.

I have 8.   I try to keep moving them around as there is activity sometimes where I never thought there would be.  You never know what is going to be where that's for sure.  The deer pic above is only 6 feet off my back porch so who know where they will appear.

I finally figured out why this Kit Fox always jumps up on the porch.  Occasionally a bird crashes into the front glass and kills himself.  This fox must be patrolling to see if that happened lately.  I found one and put it on the ledge and he was all over it.

One of the neighbors owned some property out somewhere and had some type of poison stacked up on his porch in large bags.  Not sure what type it was but he was going to take it out to his property but had not gotten around to it.  A whole herd of javelina had gotten into it and it killed them all.  G&F found out about it and I am not sure what it was but they fined the hell out of him.

Great pics.  That one looks like the one that has that black saddle looking marking on his back.   Might be another one and just something peculiar to that pack though.   :hmm

All of that pack seems to have that mark..just a genetic peculiarity I guess.

It is just  more desert area..a small patch..then it is my driveway and the garage area.  I think they  use it to get to the rest of the canyon area.  That's  just a guess... there are steep ravines and desert after that.

Jerry forgive us for hijacking your thread, but a 'must' comment on this subject...

My summer day off in Florence always started with a predawn drive.. I was on a very remote graded dirt road maybe 20-30 miles west of Florence when the sun came up, and I was treated to something I've never seen, before or after..  the road was packed with tarantula's.. I really didn't want to squarsh the little guys ( NOT so little) .. like the Gila monster Jerry took that great pic of.. I've only seen one Gila monster.. and just a couple of tarantulas...NEVER seen hundreds.. I didn't even know there were that many.. turns out this is somehow related to their mating rituals.. don't think I would have believed it without seeing it for myself..
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: wjr3895 on April 01, 2014, 12:23:08 am
The furry spiders you mention were all about 7 years old, and off to mate for the one and only time. Once mated, the female will kill him and use the male for food for the young.

This occurs most every year, and is the annual migration around the monsoon season.

Saw this occur near tombstone one evening, years ago.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on April 01, 2014, 08:41:04 am
It would be cool to see that many tarantulas.  I have only encountered them singly.  I won't comment on they kill the male after sex to let their babies feed off them...too many parables to real life..lol.   Also this certainly isn't my thread it's truly our thread so you post whatever you want.

I still get a kick out of watching the kit foxes.   :thumbup    Sitting in my truck today with the windows down - I hear this thrumming noise and look up.  A hummingbird has flown in the passenger side window and is hovering about halfway between the passenger seatback and the dash board just giving me the eyeball.  He/she moves closer and is hovering between me and the rearview mirror - gives me the once over and zooms back out the passenger window.  Very cool.   ;-D

For those that like the Hbirds, take some time and go have lunch this spring and summer up on Mt Lemmon, at the Iron Door Mine Restaurant! Make sure you sit out on the deck, next to the rail! Just be calm, and hold your finger out straight! They're cool little birds when they sit on your finger!

Hey! Isn't that the guy with the broken tail from last year?   :yes    I can really see those distinctive markings on the coyote when he turns his side to the camera.  Never seen any of them with anything that even resembles that before.  Interesting.

Looking back at the video I think you might be right although its hard to tell since they really don't  have any distinguishing marks.  He seems to be carrying his tail in an unusual way oddly enough.

I have see the foxes and coyotes get over that but it must be painful.  Our Parsons Russell had a bent sore tail and it was very painful....the vet said it was swimmers tail from using his little tail too much as a rudder in the pool.

Im pretty sure that fox was scenting. My dog use to do the same things for scents that were considered out of territory(i.e. another dogs urine)
and that pause before the end of the video was where it left its own scent. (it urinated)

Did that bobcat "take the stage" by walking the ledge at front of your house after that shot?  I'm still amazed at all the critters that do that.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on April 19, 2014, 04:22:25 pm
No he did not and I was hoping he would.  A while ago two bobcats walked the ledge so I set up the HD cam you see on the right hoping they would do that again but naturally they did not.  I was also hoping he would turn right after crossing the porch where another high def cam is set up but naturally he did not do that either.  He went straight out toward leaving the canyon.  After this shot I moved the cameras around a little.  I have to resist "chasing the shot" as they call it..which means setting up for a shot that already happened hoping it will happen again.  I just try to set it up where I guess they will be and hope for the best.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: LuckyLeaky on April 19, 2014, 04:27:23 pm
I was going to suggest a camera at that ledge the last time I posted about the ledge....Only thing about it is given the animals normal direction of travel....We going to get a lot of ass shots.... lol
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on April 19, 2014, 04:50:55 pm
Lol... I moved them around today as they seem to be going more than coming.  That one cam is the only one I  have that can take color at night so I moved it looking down the stairs.  It is funny the bobcats seem the least concerned about the cams. Deer and coyotes are far more sensitive to a new or moved camera.  I had set a cam up on the ledge but nothing has walked down it since.

I came across these in the desert today.  At first I thought they were Gila Monsters eggs but those are very oblong.  There is no nest or even an attempt at one.  I think they might be quail eggs but seem to be pretty large for quail considering how tiny they are at birth.  What do you guys think?

Its just a guess but they could be desert finch eggs.  The desert finch lays speckled eggs like that and they usually lay around 6 eggs at a time.
Are they tinted a light greenish color or are they white with the speckles?
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: LuckyLeaky on April 28, 2014, 08:35:53 pm
about how big were they???? Finch eggs are usually about the size of a dime....but can get to the size of a quarter.

Post by: Guy1az on April 30, 2014, 08:58:58 am
Not sure.  I thought these might be roadrunner but will have to agree with the majority of opinion here and go with quail eggs.  Tucsondon says he has a ton of these on his property so he knows what they look like.

Post by: Guy1az on May 01, 2014, 01:17:33 pm
Never.... I very rarely see any of them.  I see javelina once in a while but when they are in a herd they don't really care if you see them or not.  Never see the coyotes and I see deer maybe once a year.  Saw a bobcat once about 5 years ago.  That's why I was so surprised when I started getting animals on the first trail cam.  This is a canyon with only one road in and out and I think they feel safe in here... Nobody jacks with them.  We never use that front porch area so they feel comfortable being there.

This year, down my way, the quails are pretty sparse this year.  Also, if you do see any quail families, there's not as many babies either.  I don't know if this is because of the weather since its been so dry this winter and spring or if the predators are really out in force this year. A year or two ago, we used to see several quail families cruising through my acreage as well as the rest of the neighborhood.

I have not seen any quail babies yet this year....which is unusual.

My wife and I have each seen a quail family this year but each one only had 1 or 2 babies instead of the usual 5-7 chicks. So something is going on. Also, that's a lot fewer families than we've seen in the past for this time of year.

Since the middle of last week I've seen probably three or four nesting pairs with chicks.  The number of chicks has ranged from four to seven assuming I'm seeing them all.   This is a residential neighborhood that borders South Mountain Park in Phoenix so the water situation may be somewhat better than other places as well as providing lots of cover.

Ok, so I'll join my senior citizen buddy's and discuss the sex habits of the Gambel quail.. strange that you guys aren't seeing more chicks.. Ours started hatching a couple weeks back, and it seems like we're seeing the normal number of little guys (3-4) running around..

Just found this out in a conversation with a neighbor who seemed to know a bit about the Gambel's lifestyle, guess they will continue to hatch as long as the weathers hot.. I had assumed that they only had one or maybe two clutch's (think that's correct word) per season .. Nope,  according to the neighbor they can have as many as six or seven

Usually those populations are determined by how much rainfall we had last winter..at least that's what we are told.  Not sure how much in the overall scheme of things we got in our "winter'.

Yeah, you'll see them off and on most of the summer.  That's one reason that quail are so highly prized as domesticated birds.  That and the fact that they are delicious .   .   .    :woot

Ugh, their only delicious if you can hit one, I'm afraid I'm not much of a wing shot.. OK .. I'm not a wing shot period.. I managed to Q pretty high on both 7 1/2 bird, (non lethal) and 00 buck, but I've never taken a bird.. I've never done  "Cheney", but I'm so bad with a shotgun birds just laugh at me.

I had to use their rma shipping info and could not even insure it because they were paying the return shipping charges.  I dropped it off 5.1 and it is not scheduled to be delivered to Brooklyn, NY until this coming Thursday.  Seems like a long shipping time to me but not much I can do about it.  We shall see what they have to say.  I requested a credit on my charge card and not a replacement as I was afraid they would send one with the same issue.  Not sure how they will view that. I put in on my Visa and wish I had put it on my AE as they are more proactive about getting the proper credit.  Hopefully they will just credit it and go on as I have bought a ton of ancillary equipment to go with it..prop balancer, extra props, extra battery, hard shell case etc.
We shall see.  I really hate all this down time though.  I was really getting to know the GoPro software

Sometimes it helps to hunt with a dog.  Doing that, the quail tend to sit in cover longer than they would if its just you'n'me stumbling around in the bush.  Gambel's never fly far either.  A damned bobwhite will light out for the next county but Gambel's seldom fly more than twenty or thirty yards before getting back on the ground.

Is it my imagination or do your coyotes have a longer neck than most?  I don't remember seeing any with that long of a neck.  But then, outside of a zoo, most people rarely get as good a glimpse at them as your cameras get.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on May 11, 2014, 08:45:00 am
You know I had not noticed it before but you are right the neck does seem bigger....not sure why.  They remind me of German Shepherds they are so big.  The coyotes I occasionally see dart across the road in other parts of town look scrawny.

I like the bobcat pictures too. They remind me of "Queenie" who was a female bobcat who used to frequent the area around my Nana and Granddad's house.  Queenie would bring her kittens in to drink water and eat suet they had set out. She was a good looking girl. I saw her in person several times when I was young.

Those are some healthy looking deer.  Clearly they have no aversion to wandering around in windy conditions.  A lot of deer - especially eastern whitetails seem to prefer bedding down when its very windy as they are less able to react to danger until its right on them.

It was ok.  I drove my friends dog back to Detroit for him which I do every year and he flew me back.  I have a twin sister living in the area so I spent some time with her.  I rented a car the first day and her and I went out to dinner....came outside and someone had backed into the door..caved the whole door in.  I could not even open it.  Enterprise rent a car was certainly proud of me.  Not only did I have to take it back to them..I had to ask them for another one..lol.

Nice herd.  You know, talking about the deer looking a bit lean got me thinking ( usually dangerous but,  it happens :facepalm )  I've never seen what I thought was a lean looking javelina.  I don't know if they are just super efficient foragers or if the coat tends to mask what can easily be seen on other animals. 
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: Guy1az on June 11, 2014, 10:17:21 am
You are right...even the young ones don't look thin.  It may be because they will eat anything.  Then again so will a coyote.  I have seen the javelina eat my cactus that nothing else I know of will eat.....and  there is no shortage of that.

lol they do…..I would hate to try to put a penny on their backs.  I watched as a little tiny one got too far from its mother...…it started squealing and crying….she came charging back..popping her teeth.. busting the brush…... and anything else that was between her and the little one.  I would  not want to be there when she arrived.  Just like any mother animal or human I suppose.

This guy was wandering around the canyon.  Must be a neighbors dog but loose dogs don't last long around here..they get eaten pretty quickly as  wild dog does not like a tame one.  This guy looks like he could defend himself....unless he met up with a multiple coyotes.  Not sure what kind of dog he is..any ideas?

I was thinking that kind of mottled black and brown color/design was indicative of some breed but cannot place it.
Brindle maybe.
Title: Re: Trail Cams
Post by: coelacanth on June 21, 2014, 08:14:30 pm
Markings are definitely brindle.  The dog looks to be a mixed breed though.  Could be part boxer, part Great Dane, part pit bull and part something else. 

Hard to say without getting a better look but from the shape of the muzzle I'd say Great Dane and maybe cattle dog or something smallish like that.

I did speak to the new neighbor lady about her dogs I had not hoped it would go so well.  She promised to keep them on her property and thanked me for not yelling at her. They have made no appearance since but we shall see.  She seems to be very responsible and is a national known figure in the "end of life"
industry so to speak.  Not really sure I am phrasing that correctly.  She is well know as a lecturer/radio guest/author and a recognized expert in her field.  I have not seen or heard her dogs since…lets just hope that hold true through the long haul.  I was able to point out that there were mountain lions about which would surely eat them….that could not have hurt.

Film crew finally left...they were here two hours.  They filmed everywhere and had me talk about trail cams.  I told my wife that I hoped I did not make a jackass out of myself and she replied that that ship had already sailed.
The game and fish did a bit on camera in my little work area in my garage (note to self..clean it up more) about their fledging lend a trail cam program that has just started.  If you suspect you have mountain lions specifically they want to lend you a trail cam to gather more knowledge about their movements.  I am just glad that is mercifully over.

They said the kgun 9 website should be updated in full by tomorrow.  The 5:00 version was longer than the 6:00.
Not sure what the 10:00 will show.  I will post a link as soon as I see it.
The G&F PIO called after the 5:00 news broadcast and was very happy.  Something I has not considered was their not mentioning where I lived other than to say Tucson Mountains.  The PIO said they did that to  not jeprodize my cameras by being stolen.  They even parked a ways down the road to do the live broadcast.

HE DID IT AGAIN !!

Looks like your theory on "hanging around" was spot on.. I can't believe you caught them a second time, well done and congratulations!!

Wow, a second spotting. From the news report your looking like the local celebrity now. Pretty soon you'll start getting snap shots of poperatzy scoping your place, lol.

Not certain, but those look like Bob cats. Blew up the pictures and there are markings on legs and stub of tail indicating bobs.

I am unaware of how much overlap there is in territories of the 2 species.  Somebody else know?

Oh yeah those are bobcats...not sure how they overlap but they obviously do.

Did that bobcat trip a video??? Be cause he sure looks like he is walking very, VERY cautiously...
Kinda interested to see if he was..

Very cool.
Just saw a bobcat walk into my friends yard looking for water from the drip system.
This is in town near Pantano & Speedway!

The Mt. Lions are still on the Kgun ch9 website which is surprising.
I would have thought a man bites dog story would have bumped it by now.

I am getting virtually nothing on the cameras...I mean nothing.  No deer no nothing.  Seems to me that means the lions are still in the area...or they just scared hell out of everything else and they are staying away.

Could the storms, like we've had up here lately with all the wind and rain, disrupt the animals down your way?

If not, the lions must still be in the area or maybe they just marked the trails around your house enough to keep the other animals away for a while.

No I don't think it's the storms.  We have had plenty of storms over the years here and it has never had this effect.
It must be the lions are still here or their brief presence made a lasting impact that will take a while to get over.
A lion takes a deer a week so with two of them even more so.  If that was a mating pair ( which is one of two options acvording to G&f) maybe they are going to stay.

what if you used deer scent in your front yard??? To get rid of the lion scent....Would that bring the wildlife back??? Shit, it even might bring the mountain lions back...lol

That might work either way.  I could ask for volunteers to use a predator call about 4 am and hide in a bush.

Didn't happen to get a rain lately, did ya?
Could have washed away some lion scent.

As a matter of fact you are right...I had not thought of that.

Nor I.  There were about six videos of these guys and I studied them all and perhaps its bugs.   Termites maybe.  They came running
around the corner because I put a new camera there and it scared them.

Yeah, I also thought it might be some kind of insect you couldn't see on the video.
