Put the trail cam on the tree with the white thing on it. And put a branch on the top to angle it down. Better close up for the shots. Also put a 5 gallon bucket there so you can use it for size comparison on a bear there.
the white thing is an old t shirt I wore for a day trying to get the bear used to my sent. The tree with the cam on it is the same distance away from bait and about 4' up the stump is about 5' high and cam is pointing north swamp is on west (left) and a thicket on east (right) I thought about moving cam to a steel post and move it closer, a little nervous about losing cam. Also the cam is about 18' from bait
When hunting whitetails there are many different languages being spoken afield that I key on when outdoors. All these little creatures living around whitetails have something to tell us if we are willing to listen.
My favorite tattletales of the outdoors are a handful of little birds that live in my state of Ohio. Maybe yours too. A tip for the upcoming season.
There are Blue Jays, Cardinals, Chickadees, Killdeer, and Sparrows that all have language...
