Last spring I noticed a couple of wooducks feeding under one of our bird feeders. I decided to put out one of my trail cameras out since I was not using it to scout deer at this time of the year. A week later I check the trail camera SD card and was amazed at how many wooducks were at the feeder. The picture seems a little out of focus but it is just that the ducks are in a feeding frenzy and are moving so fast. What a joy to watch.
This piebald deer has been around my hunting stand for the last 3 years. To my knowledge, has never had a fawn. I asked the neighboring hunters not to shoot her in the hopes that she would be able to pass on her genes. The picture was taken on my trail cam in Pine County July 2020.
This is a photo of a fisher in Winona County Minnesota just north of the border with Houston County. A trapping expert I am acquainted with indicates he believes this to be an adult male not yet fully grown given the size of its head in proportion to its body.
Many years of trail cam photos but this has to be my all time favorite. Date stamp has wrong year but right date and time. Wolves are frolicking in one of the first snowfalls of the year near Bemidji, MN.
This was the nuisance bear breaking into houses near the Fort Ripley area. I got this photo Tuesday, June 28th, at 4:52pm looking in my laundry room window on White Pine Drive. I was at work that day when it was snooping around in broad daylight. My dad encountered a bear while sitting on our porch a week earlier and I put a trail camera out to see how often it came around. Turns out, around dinner time.
My girlfriend took this shot as we were driving east on MN 23 just west of Beaver Creek. The two bucks were running one after the other on the left ditch, then crossed the road, and continued running alongside us in the right ditch. Won't happen again!
Wolf pack, an unusual site in our area October 19, 2014
We saw four wolves running through our property just southeast of Alexandria. By the time I grabbed the camera, they were going up the hill and I was shooting right directly into the sun. Got three on camera at one time and a fourth was off to the right.
We just put out our feeder after seeing a Ruby-Throated hummingbird the other day but the range of these little guys isn't even east of the Rockies and somehow he made it to MN. Taken close to nightfall on May 16th.
