The trail cam shows how in mid-summer the area filled in with water. You still see deer moving around. Now, wading birds have moved into area. Lots of food for a Sasquatch to live off. Reconyx corporation says "See what you've been missing. Getting these images that time of year would be impossible without those cameras. That is why I believe this type of technology will lead to a Bigfoot discovery..
We headed out yesterday on the first real cold day of the year in Florida to retrieve two Reconyx RC60 covert trail cams. We had deployed them in areas where we knew there was an abundance of wildlife. We were not disappointed. The cameras had been in field for six months (May 13, 2013). Today was November 13, 2012 and we were very glad to find the cameras and that they had functioned properly.
There was one sequence of interest where something seemed to be stalking a flock of birds. The area did fill up with water, and became a total swamp. This was good for the presence of wildlife was massive. Anyway, here is one of the deer and one of many herds of deer that were photographed.
In the above image you see its clear in front of the camera. Suddenly, something moves in front of the camera mounted 5 feet off the ground (look below). Something now blocks the screen. It was gone in the next frame.
This is trail cam number one and it has been up for one month. I visited the site Sunday and I am glad I did because some strange things have been going on, as you can see above.
First, the cheap batteries are down to 61%. There is no way that will keep the camera charge through storm season. Second, there were 301 images on the Reconyx conferming my belief that this was a nature rich area.
After downloading the media card, there were images of hogs, deer, turkeys, racoons and something Kevin and I cannot explain.
In a one second interval, something moved in front of the viewfinder completely obstructing the lense on a dark, cold night (the same night we were camping in another area).
These images above are from a two interval set when the camera fired for 24 seconds.
The image does appear white, but keep in mind that animals close to the Reconyx RC60 will cause the camera to flare giving it a bleached out look. I don't know what kind of animal could obscure the lense at over five feet. Kevin does not know either.
We do not represent this as anything Skunkape related. It is what it is.
We have found a permanent home for the ReconyxRC60 covert trail cam in an abundant wildlife area. My plan is to use this area for the next five years and see what we get. Everything is out here and I don't want to waste any time getting it set up for the next six months until November.
I was out there the other day and replaced the lame batteries that were in it and switched the media card. I was up for only a week but it captured a lot of animals. That is what is getting us so excited. (Click images for large size)
The test deployment of the trail cams shows we have hit the mother load. Tons of deer showed up everyday on the camera. I have never seen an area do that. Often you can go a week for something to move. Look at this mother with her baby...How cute! (NOTE: the mother is on the far left with baby following circled in red)

On two occasions I have had a doe walk right in front of the Reconyx RC60 game cam and then look direrctly into the camera. They seem to know its there. Other animals don't respond, pigs, coyotes and large deer pay it no attention. Does Bigfoot?
You can see her looking just before she took off running.
There is a theory that they can hear high frequency sound. The Reconyx puts out a very high, but faint, high frequency that is inaudible to human ears. It is so faint that its surprising the doe can hear it. The bucks never seem concerned. This is something I need to do more research on.
The Buck seems unconcerned. They always do.
She is getting ready to take off. This happens a lot. Not all the time, however.
Piebaldpigs are fairly rare according to the hunting websites. The reason is they are easy to see and fall to predators. This is the second Piebald pig our Reconyx RC60 trail cams have photographed (that's right Phil Polling, the media card can hold 14,000 images). We did not get Bigfoot on this outing, but cool stuff anyway. The cam just caught the top of two of them. We have the cameras aimed high to catch Bigfoot. If we just wanted wildlife, we would aim them lower.
This is Kevin from one month ago as we put up the trail cam in the famous west track of the Green Swamp.
This area is where the latest reports of Bigfoot have come in from hunters. That is why we were in there. The BFRO has an amazing data base and it can be a good tool for researchers to use to determine the areas to work.
Kevin is seen walking in front of the the Reconyx RC60 camera to make sure it is working properly before we leave it up for long tern assingment. This is me just looking at it and not really sure why. Notice the dazed look on my face.
Anyway, it has been a good month and I bet we got some good stuff on it already. Can't wait to get back out there.
