Is that a commercial bracket setup? Can't wait till you get some pictures!


Its actually a custom one I had a friend make for me. Fully adjustable and comes apart in sections...first time using it.

Here's one of the first spots I set up along this creek...but this set didn't yeild anything great. I tried to gamble and went for a west facing set in hopes of some decent sun set pics...but got 95% false pics

Image

Image

I moved this set off the water and tried a predator set...

Image

Image

Image

Checked the cam today and got these pics...unfortunatley I must have lost a piece of foam from the case that presses the cam up tight to gasket...so I ended up with some flash bleed.

I'd really like to get some better raptor pics this year, and I've been trying to come up with some ideas for attractants and sets...I tweaked this set a bit to intice both ground and air predators....a few cat toys on some wire and Alaskan fish fertilizer!

Now that pretty much every species of waterfowl is now back up here, I decided to do a waterfowl set again. Used a little barley for bait on the shoreline...should get some decent shots with this set if all goes well.

Nice location's & set ups.

I was wondering with your predator set ups do you give any thought/effort to scent control ?
I noticed in the pictures that included you you had some type of leather boot and no rubber gloves.
Maybe I go over the top but I kind of follow the lead of actual trappers and they all seem to use scent control (rubber gloves, rubber boots etc.) when setting up traps for (ground) predators.

In the fall...with deer I'm quite a bit more carefull but this time of year I'm pretty laid back with it all and just out for fun so don't really pay too close attention to it...I often bring the dogs along to get them out for a stroll...around here predators are pretty used to people and not a lot of trapping goes on (just shooting) so they know where the danger comes from. Always seem to do fairly good with the pics either way.
