what is this ?

my guess is Bear or porcupine ? it was so close it whited out the first photo. i moved the camera back a little in the hopes that it comes by again, hopefully get a better photo. there are no branches that close to the camera.

If I had to guess, I would say bear. I've never had a porc messing with my cams, but I get regular shots like this of bear giving it the sniff and ruffle.

I get a lot of pics like that. I also get a lot of pics of raccoons...

Bigfoot saw me but nobody believes him!

It's most definitely a raccoon! I have one spot that every night I have tons of pics with raccoons and every night I have a couple pics like this. I believe they are trying to get to the slugs/bugs in the bottom of the security box.

weird, just WEIRD. that fuzzy thing has not been back until yesterday AND....trail cameras are stationary...RIGHT ? they dont change angles or take photos in the other direction unless we move them...Right ?

this is what i got when i checked the camera today. (the dates are wrong, this was the 14th and 15th not 11 and 12)

then the fuzzy critter shows up again, that camera doesnt have video capabilities. its not suppose to move and those photos are seconds apart. i moved the camera after the last time it showed up in the hopes of getting a better photo of it when it walks past or climbs the other tree. but NOOOO

it walks right past the camera again. i think i need to put the two cameras i have facing each other, and borrow one that takes video and place that in a high spot looking down. what the heck is going on ?
