We had gone to Trail Cam number two earlier and it had 95 images on it. You can see some of those images on this blog and on my YouTube site. Good things are happening. When you are a dedicated hoaxer, you must work very hard and put in the miles and the time to 'hoax' these things. We are trying so hard on that.

Today Kevin spent a good part of the day assisting Tim Fasano with trail-cam recovery. It was a beautiful day for a hike in the swamp and surrounding woods.
Upon finding one of the trail-cams they were both excited to see that the camera had picked up 93 images!
Please log on to http://www.seminoleproject.com to see these photos when they are uploaded.
During the hike Kevin found a couple of different odd things. The first thing I found was the skull of some small animal. At this time I am not sure what it is but I am sure there is someone out there who can identify it. Please help me as I am not a trained biologist!
The second is the back half of a hog. It was cleanly severed in half with only a small tear near the ribs. There was no blood on the ground and there was no sight of the front half of the pig.
I don't think this was done by a person as who would purposely leave the ham and ribs? It appeared to be twisted in half after its' back was broken. I don't know if a bear would kill like this or not but I am hopping that there might be someone who can shed some insight

What is positive about all this is the hard work is paying off in verifying our tactics as being correct. It is just a matter of staying with a long term project to catch images of animals that just don't belong in Florida. A panther or wild cat would be an amazing discovery, as well.
Tomorrow I will show you how she reacted and why I think that is no matter for concern.

Normally we would get these temperatures in early May. That is a good thing perhaps, for it will keep recreational activity down and the area will be undisturbed. Animals will then move around more and I have a better chance of getting something on the reconyx.

Finding locations for these Reconyx RC60 cameras is harder work then I thought. Unlike regular 'squatching' where you are observing and recording your environment, with this project, you must go deeper then your comfort zone will allow to find a very remote area. We all believe the big guy does the same thing. It is time Bigfoot researchers start going into these areas and get off the trails. The Seminole Project has taught me that concept very well.
Here is a video of me after I found the camera and checked the batteries and hit count. There was a large pig in the area and I had to scare it off. Scat was also found in front of the camera. I was hoping to find something there.

This is not easy. You must go deep and far away from people and civilization. If not, the study won't work. When you are finding animals, the people will not be around.
I have started a new YouTube channel that will be my primary channel now. It is called "Seminole Project." It will be a five year commitment to once and for all find evidence of the skunkape.

|Kevin and I found the trail cam I had deployed in Thursday. We needed to find a better location for it and use the locking mechanism.|
That we found in a water filled swamp. This area also yielded prints leading out of the cypress hammock. This rocks.

Armed with multiple trail cams provided by a private investor, the Seminole Project is on. This is a deep field deployment of stealth cameras to find photographic evidence of the Skunkape.
This is Kevin our technical advisor. He is a professional production guy, and a major asset to this long term project.

|My years of experience led me to an area of major Skunkape interest. All of the agreed upon elements area present -- food, water, thick vegetation for cover and remoteness.|
I put the ReconyxRC60 covert game cam near the only river in Florida were they have a warning sign for canoe paddlers about the alligators and dead fall, and that you enter at your own risk. No hikers can get near it because the brush is so thick.
In the photo above, can you see the trail cam? Move five feet left or right and the camera is gone! That is just the way I like it.
