Wildlife Camera
 
Does anyone want to venture a guess as to what type of creature this is? Date is wrong on the camera; this was taken this year.

Tough to tell, but I'm thinking fox or maybe fisher.

Nope. Note that the picture is fuzzy. It's Bigfoot.

Seriously though, what's the point of a trail camera when more times than not the image comes out blurry making it difficult to identify what set it off in the first place?

I do get pretty decent photos off my trail camera - but that one was so blurry I couldn't ID it. Nightime photos are less clear because of the IR flash, but I don't like the idea of an incandescent flash at night disturbing the wildlife. You can see some of them sticking their nose up at the cameras trying to figure it out.

At first I thought the head looked like a fisher (and that's what I've been hoping to catch on camera) but I'm thinking now fox is more likely. I have some nice photos of turkey, a ton of deer and fawns (I watch them grow up on the trail camera), bear, coyotes, among other things like mice, chipmunks, etc. I got a photo of a really strange woman walking through my property while they were searching for those Dannemora escapees, and I really can't imagine what she was doing out there going through the brush in shorts and sandals no less. I get some of hunters also as my little plot isn't posted, though honestly I'd hate to see one of the deer I watch grow up shot, but I grew up eating venison and I don't like the idea of putting access off limits to people who've lived here their whole lives who want to hunt deer. I've seen fisher here but have as of yet to capture them on camera.

This is my favorite nighttime shot. It's so in your face. http://www.adkforum.com/photos/v/dma..._0004.JPG.html

My gosh! It is my face! :clap:

Very hard to tell. What month was it taken? My wild and ignorant guess is baby cub rooting around.

Buckladd 09-10-2016 05:41 PM

Fox

JerseyHighlander 09-12-2016 10:46 PM

Looks like a nice healthy fox to me.

IndLk_Brett 09-14-2016 02:51 PM

Purposely didn't look at any of the guesses before the photo so as not to be influenced and my immediate thought was also fox.

(Although, while reading through, Trail Boss's photo of a pine martin did make me take pause - I just think the legs look slightly too long and the body a bit too large though)

Pretty sure it was around June. I get a lot of deer, and the occasional bear, turkey and coyote shots. This was my first fox, hoping to get a fisher whose sign I also see around. I think it's a fox. I have heard their crazy screeching at night and found an active den with pups nearby.

"Crazy Screeching" sounds like coyotes.
Foxes yap like puppies.

dmartenvt,
did it sound like the red fox at ~4:00 minutes in the linked video?

Way too heavily bodied for a fox or a coyote, or a wolf for that matter.

I record the animals - I don't have a handy way to upload the fox alarm cries that I've recorded, but this is what I'm talking about. I hear the coyotes much more frequently and their crazy yapping is a different crazy. Fox alarm cries; definitely more zombie apocalypse especially when close and getting closer. Blair witch even.
