Hey guys on my winter walk this Sunday I came across some snowshoe hare tracks on my property which thirlls me to death that this particular peice of dirt proves to be habitat for yet another critter. Anyway, after following the tracks for a little while, it looks to me like he is staying in the one area and especially around a big aspen deadfall.
To try to salvage some enjoyment out of this way too long winter i decided I want to set up a trail cam this weekend and try to get pics of him. So my question is..
Should I just set the cam up in the deadfall near the tracks hoping to get him there or is there a food I can set out (under the safety of cover of course) to get him to be where i want him to be, but in good light for a pic.
I once tried the the trail cam approach on a grouse I kept flushing off the same drumming log one spring. Set the cam in his thicket there but never got a pic of him although it triggered a few times. Going to try that again this spring too....
Just a cabin fever reducer... , lets see if we can get a pic of the snowshoe via some suggestions here.
He seems to be frequenting two deadfalls in particular in a creek bottom of hemlock and whitepine. ANd the first one that says carrots is banned..LOL (JK they may be what works)
