Title: Camera Trapping
Post by: Bailey on August 13, 2013, 05:45:28 pm
Thought it would be interesting to start this thread and share some of the photos my camera has taken lately and update over time.
I encourage any landowners to get into it, can be quite rewarding to see some of the animals you know are around but don't get to see often. The main goal for me was to get a photo of a cape leopard.

We had the camera up for a few weeks, got a few pictures of some porcupine

Then, only 5 days later, we got the shot  ;D

Scott, our resident male in the area. He got collared 2 weeks earlier at Koeelbay.

Wow that is a great photo....from the site....
Cape mountain leopards are extremely elusive and
shy, not to mention occurring in very low densities.
When telling people that part of our research entails
the capture of leopards to fit them with satellite GPS
collars, the response is often loaded with envy about
this exciting job. Capturing a leopard is certainly a
thrilling prospect, but most people dont realise the
amount of behind the scenes time, effort, resources
and sheer determination that go into catching such a
ghost-like animal.

FANTASTIC man.........  great to see the Leopard - but also the Porcupine.  We often had them visiting in Oranjezicht.... got stacks of pics somewhere...

Pray tell where about do you stay.. and which camera is being used (your rig setup?)  - would love to do similar once back in SA

Thanks guys  :thumleft:

We are in the Kleinmond/Betty's Bay area. We have a Cuddeback Attack Flash Model camera. Opted for the flash model so we could
get colour night photos.

The camera isn't the fanciest ever, but good value for money. Got the lock box as an extra, baboons can do serious damage to the cameras. Bought ours through www.cameratrap.co.za (http://www.cameratrap.co.za). They offer lots of advice and have a good variety of cameras.

And an even rarer site, my father on his old XL. I know he rides it, but I have never seen him riding   :toothy12:

Would the flash not scare them away from that specific spot in future.

The flash on most models is infrared and undetectable to the naked eye.

We had to shoot a few of these as they were overpopulated and were wiping out every new season's wildebeest  arrivals. The photos were used in the motivation for the Cites permits.

I see the latest cameras (sniper) send the photos instantly to your phone or email address. They cost around R3800 and I am thinking of it. I can put one on the inlaws farm and watch what game go by in just about real time. They also shoot videos depending on how they are set up.

Here's a link for more info - http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=139226.0 (http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=139226.0)

Will check it out.

Howzit Bailey

Thanks for pointing me to this thread.

You have some super lekker pics. I would have been stoked to get some of them.

Lekker man.

With regard that Rooikat - I reckon that one was not lekker. Last legs if you asked me.

Its been pretty quiet up at the camera lately.

Thought it would be interesting for you guys to see a size comparison.

This is us checking the camera with our dog

And you'll see the grys bokkie is in the same position, can see how small it actually is, same for the rooikat

Where and what kind of camera do you use?  Where can you buy them?  Are they expensive?  Soooo many questions  :)

It can be started as an hobby as my house is next to a bush and I often see buck in my garden.

We have a Cuddeback Attack Flash Model camera. Opted for the flash model so we could
get colour night photos.

The camera isn't the fanciest ever, but good value for money. Got the lock box as an extra, baboons can do serious damage to the cameras. Bought ours through www.cameratrap.co.za (http://www.cameratrap.co.za). They offer lots of advice and have a good variety of cameras.  :thumleft:

Looks like a 'spear' over his shoulder.

Willing to bet you will find wire snares over the animal paths in the area. My guess is he is trapping for meat. The spear is to kill the animals when he catches them in the snares.

Just my guess.

 :laughing4: As hy 'n Nagfoto neem is daar nie 'n Flash nie wat mense of Diere kan sien nie.
Game cameras are smaller and more feature-packed than ever, and the hottest new models now include black-flash technology at a price that wont destroy most hunting budgets. Using low- or no-glow infrared flash, these cams can capture nighttime images without the burst of visible light or the glowing red blob of white-flash and standard infrared models, allowing you to get more pictures of ultrawary bucks (as well as spy on trespassers undetected).

Great that you have a leopard hanging around in your area, whereabouts in the western cape are you?

A suggestion, maybe try and move the camera to a lower, level position, aimed at the same gap in the rocks.

Awesome, look forward to seeing more of your photos.

Just a quick update. Been very quiet up at the camera the last 2 months. Very little of interest except for the usuals, but did get a pic of a Smith's Red Rock Rabbit.

Is that your khat the blighter was harvesting, Offshore. Bloody cheek :biggrin: I take it this is the mountain cabbage/omkyk twak variety

When I was in Djibouti last year, I found out the Prez's wife was the biggest importer and seller of khat (obviously legal). Locals get very grumpy if they don't have their daily supply. Some blokes chew almost their whole salary away on the stuff

Here in the Ogaden, Ethiopia, the 2 Antonovs bringing khat from the highlands to the Somali border have stopped flying because the 2 ladies dominating the industry are engaged in a mini war. It must be pretty lucrative as the one owns a string of aircraft supplying Kenya and south. She also provides to the UK and the States
Title: Re: Camera Trapping

 :laughing4: I have chewed the stuff but it does nothing to me. You are so right, it is a booming Industry even in SA. I Googled Khat the other day and saw that it is illegal in many Western Countries but in SA it is Protected. :lol8: I think they are feeding all the Somalies and Kenyans in SA from my Wild Crop. >:(

Verskoon as ek nou dof klink, maar hoe meen jy nou? 

Het jy die gat gegrawe, en indien wel, hoekom.  Of is dit diere wat die gat gegrawe het en jy wil agterkom hoekom dit gegrawe is?

Dis 'n baie interresante thread.

Ek glo dit was 'n aardvark wat die gat gegrou het - maar ek is nie seker nie. Dis die eerste keer dat ek op so 'n vars gat afgekom het, so ek wou ondersoek instel.

Not a "camera trap" in the true sense of the word but thought I'd share it with you guys anyways. After almost a week of trying I was finally able to capture some elephants drinking at one of the windpumps using my GoPro. I made use of my head strap mount attached to a brick. After placing my setup right at the pump's outlet I set the GoPro to shoot at a 5 second interval and then waited for the elephants to arrive. This was the outcome...

On Sunday I noticed that something is screwing with my Camera and after looking at the Pictures I saw a little Monkey chewing my Camera. No Fodies this Week, when I arrived on the Farm my Computer would not work.  >:(

Taken from the Cape Leopard Trust Website:

"All leopards have a unique pattern of spots, which we can use to identify different individuals from camera trap photographs. Unfortunately, the two flanks of the leopard are not symmetrical, meaning that we need to get two simultaneous photographs of both sides of the leopard to be able to confidently identify it from either side in future. We use the photographs to develop an identikit for each leopard, allowing us to get a basic idea of their movements by plotting the locations where they are photographed on a map."

They come from far and wide to harvest Khat which grows in our Area. We border the Baviaans Nature Reserve and there is little control by the Authorities. Fortunately they only pick the leaves which they carry in those bags seen on the Photo. We do not have Poachers. Touch Wood.

Found this on my Download the past Weekend. What a nauseating Experience. A little further I rigged another Camera on a Raft to see what was eating the Crabs, when I got there the Camera was gone, broken off. Then the red Mist really descended on me. My Farm falls under the Derestriction of Haenertsburg but my Gut told me that these Fuckers were from the Mathabatha side as they are only about 20 km from us and could come in undetected. So on Monday Morning I travelled from Pietersburg to Mathabatha which is about 10 km after you take the Mafefe Turnoff. There I went to the Maliepsdrift Police Station and laid a charge of Theft and Poaching. Imust tell you that it is the cleanest and most Professional Facility I have seen in my Life. I handed the Fodies in with a Picture of the Camera and they took a Statement. Thereafter I met the Investigating Officer who in turn introduced me to the Station Commander. I coul see that they were very curious about me having a Farm in the Bewaarkloof and I think I was the only White Man that laid a charge there ever. After chatting for about 2 Hrs we parted ways with a Promise that they would do their best.  Funny, the Commander told me that they would probably get them by identifying there Dogs as they were real Specimen.
Last Night, 30 Hrs after we laid a Charge WO Thobeyane phoned me to inform me that he retrieved my Camera and that the Guy in Green gas been arrested and that two more Suspects were to be taken in Today. I am impressed. :biggrin:

The previous Month I rigged a Camera to the Raft to see what eats the Crabs on the Raft as the was a lot of Crab Shells Lying on it. Something came on klapped it (probably an Otter) and the Camera was upside down holding on with one Cabletie. I rerigged it higher on the Gantry but that was a mistake as the Poachers saw it and took it

Title: Re: Camera Trapping
Post by: immigrant on May 31, 2016, 08:21:21 am
It wasn't, but it is becoming a problem. My friend who lives in town had his minivan stolen, after they loaded it up with all his tools and some electronics in his home, while they were sleeping. No, he had never locked his house before and the keys were in it. But still unheard of around here. The last week I noticed lights coming down my road at night ( i live down a dead end road and i am the last house). So there is no reason for them to come here at night or during the day unless they are invited.They would then turn around and go back. I thought I would put the cameras up and sure as shit they were trying something.
It's not the Canada of 10 years ago...

If my life or that of my family is in immediate danger, I may try to protect them. But here is the catch. To legally store my guns they have to be locked up in a safe or with a trigger lock and the ammuntion stored separately. So if I had time to retrieve my firearm, unlock it, go find my ammo and load it, I technically had time to get away from the threat by running out the back door for instance. So in my situation with the stranger snooping around my yard, I have to lock my house and call 911. Or politely, unarmed, ask them to leave.

Hmmm...

Thanks. I forget the term they use here. Something about no-retreat... you are threatened, you protect yourself. Your home is your castle.

Oh well. At least if you call the cops they WILL respond. not like most places back in SA.

Guys, I am looking for some advice. I wanted to do this a long time ago, but think it is time now.

I dont know much about these trapping/trophy cameras, but I have very specific requirements

Mostly night time shooting, at a water hole or feeding spot. I assume that the flash will be very important as a normal flash will chase away whatever there is?
Is it possible to get a colour pic with IR?
The camera can be reached on a daily basis, so battery life is not that important, but will be convenient


I will really appreciate any feedback or even a recommended camera

The park is well known for the animals being very tame, so not due to the current drought.

its just difficult to find places to put the cam, I don,t own ground besides my yard and cats and dogs are boring.
I have friends with farms and the are some other areas I can use, but the chances of a cam being stolen are there.

I walk paths where I see animal activity and no things with toes.
But to get nice photo,s is luck and placement of the cam

I am urgently looking for a cheap camera like you guys are using. Where and how can I get a R700 NOW in CT or before the 14th in JHB? My lift is returning on the 15th

Please help!

Oooh a bosvark, I so want to get one of those.
Been hunting for them 3 times. Only heard grunts and moans in the bushes and once a fleeting dash between cover.
The only time I saw one that I could get sights on, all I had with me a .22 with Sub sonics and a 9mmP pistol.
I thought of winging him with the .22 and getting him to chase me so I could finish the job with the pistol. But... I still have some ethics.

that nice and big.

On EC hunt to shoot a kudu , i used to watch them every evening and was well positioned, they got very close, but the kudu did not appear, after 3 days i asked andries if i could shoot one, he looked at me in amusement, why have you not?
Well the next day was raining and i then had to leave, so no bushbuck

The last Photo was when I heard Hooves on Stones and shone my Torch at the Place,350 Meters from the Camera. That thing is so bright it chased that Spook right out of the Grass.
