Pictures #001 - #007 are from the very same location. One cam is aimed West and the other is aimed North. All I'm wanting to do is broaden my FOV and to be able to get recordings of animals coming past from different angles. Example, the Bear was recorded on one cam but not the other and the visa versa with the Cougar as well.

-LOOKING WEST SET-
You may recall last year that I posted a pic of a Wolf pack, the day before we arrived.....................................................................................Pic. #001
Notice how much the landscape has changed from this picture to the following pictures.
The large tree in the background used to be standing further up the river and was the one that I almost bolted my cam to...............................Pics. #002 - #004

-LOOKING NORTH SET-
This is the very reason why I have two cams set up at this set. I want to be able to document activity in a 120 degree sweep of ........................Pics. #005 - #007
The Cougar has always taken this same route and only at night thus far while filming in this area.

And various pics from other nearby sets...................................................................................................................................Pics. # 008 - #010

Outstanding batch of photos. I've often been tempted to put two cameras aimed in different directions as you've done here, but I've always been leery of losing two cameras at one time. This year, for the first time, one of mine was taken -- my own fault in part since it was within sight of a very lightly used dead-end trail (but well camouflaged) and I figured nobody would either go past or, if they did, not see it -- WRONG!

Supurb images and as always l am amzed at the number and diversity of game, we certainly missed out here when mother nature was distributing game species.
My usual question what cameras?

Sorry to hear about the loss as it's my exact same feelings about doing this as well. In fact I'm going back up here in a day or two to alter this set a bit but I'm not quite sure how. I may end up removing the North facing cam and draw it back quite a bit and aim it North West. That will increase my FOV considerably as well. The added bonus is that I will see if anybody go nears the other cam.

Plain and simple, this set makes me too nervous as is.

UPDATE:
I have since gone back and separated the two cams and camouflaged the heck out of them now. That puts my mind at ease for sure. I also closed down the sets responsible for pics #005 - #010 and relocated them to other locals. The sandbar set now has a sweeping view and is now in direct line for that Cougar's preferred path.
