Re: More Trail/Game Camera pics:

Just curious Jere.... no coyotes in your area. That is a lot of small creatures that would be prey if they were here.

Our yard and the clearing / woods behind is heavily crisscrossed with coyote tracks after every snow.

Re: More Trail/Game Camera pics:

I hike with Scout every day through this hundred acre wood (kind of a Winnie the Pooh of Northern Chester County), and rarely see signs of coyote. When I do, it is as if one is moving through, not settling in. My neighbor shot a deer (one of the few that survived EHD) late in the day near the end of the season. His flashlight batteries died, so he walked home, it was cool so he decided to go back in the morning. The deer was practically stripped bare to the bone. I suspect it was coyote or a couple. We do have plenty foxes, and they will feed on fresh kill, but I can't imagine even several foxes stripping a deer to the bone in one night. Bottom line, I see one coyote about once a year, I've never caught one on my camera that rides a tree in these woods 365 days a year.

Here we have them about every second nite. Apparently they alternate routes as a hunting strategy.

If we get several nites between fresh snowfalls then the view behind us is a patchwork of trails.

I've never come across a bloody kill site so I suspect they live on single bite rodents rather than larger creatures. There are lots of bunnies close by that even come right up on to the back deck during the nite for seeds.

Deer are few and generally only came around when the apples were on the round.

Coyote sitings are rare in the daylight but yesterday we did have one out back where the lawn meets the woods. It stared for several minutes at the picnic table where the Wife feeds the wild birds and squirrels. Many were there eating, but he thought twice about coming any closer. As hungry as he was, just wasn't worth the risk and he/she headed back out into the woods.

Re: More Trail/Game Camera pics:

Had the camera with me this evening and got a few pics of the wildlife in the pasture. 2 pairs of geese and a pair of Black tail Deer.

Re: More Trail/Game Camera pics:

Just catching up on this thread.

Any update from the hillside condo, Jere? I wonder who'd win the battle of groundhog vs fox vs raccoon vs skunk, if it were to happen?

We've had coyotes in the area here. My wife saw one a few days ago, just a few miles from home. I'm not sure whether they'll be back this year, as over 30 acres of woods behind us have been turned into a new neighborhood over the past year or two.

We get lots of deer (they love to destroy one of the yews in front of the house). Also quite a few wild turkeys. And a huge number of rabbits the last couple of years.

Had a Fisher cat here last year for the first time. Wasn't too happy to see that, but I also haven't seen any signs of mice in quite a while.

Re: More Trail/Game Camera pics:

Well the first bear sighting of 2019 was night before last. Not sure if this is same one as it appeared bigger. It hit my neighbors bee hives as well. Bird feeders were removed that morning for safety.

Just pulled down the camera and can report:

This white tail is mighty nervous:


This Raccoon just poking in to check if the groundhog is set to stay:


The Fox is still hopeful, but not cleared for access yet:


And the leader in the club house, is this groundhog just stretching in the sun on the front veranda:


It looks to me like the Groundhog is going to rule this roost this year
