Beginning Farmer: Winter Visitors
After closing shop last fall at the Would-Be Farm, we set up a game camera, pointed it at the fire pit at Base Camp, and then betook ourselves South.
The game camera is a little modern marvel: a stout camouflaged plastic box, with motion-detection and infrared flash and a metric butt-load of memory.
How much is a metric butt-load? Over 13,000 images.
Here are a few highlights:
Rather than relieving my curiosity about what comes and goes outside the door, these photos only make me want to set up more game cameras, maybe build an observation blind, possibly get night-vision glasses, and keep my dang eyes open!

Please set up a future game camera over where the black bears are stuffing themselves with fall's fermenting apples !

Ha! Once the deer leave enough apples to ferment, I will set up the black bear cam!
