Love is the feeling you get when you like something as much as your motorcycle.

Awesome thread, Bailey! Thanks for sharing.

Do you take part in the Virtual Museum (MammalMap project by the ADU)?
If not, please upload these pics - the ADU does great work and these pics will be worth gold.
Here's a link for more info - http://www.wilddog.za.net/forum/index.php?topic=139226.0

"HORSEPOWER" is how fast you hit the fence.
"TORQUE" is how far you take the fence with you.

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. They offer lots of advice and have a good variety of cameras.  :thumleft:

My first attempt. The Camera is a Sniper Model with a Black Flash, so the Pics at Night are in Black and White

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.

Awesome shots. Love the change in quality, did you change the setting on the cam?

Pity about the poacher guy, luckily you've got the infra red cam, else he would've probably destroyed it along with the evidence.

Love the zebra shots
