I just bought one of these Browning trailcams. My backyard definitely has wildlife visitors: coyotes, mountain lions, bobcats, egrets, etc. For example, recently I found matted-down grass that I think might have been a mountain lion and cub resting there for part of the night. I’ve finally blocked-off deer via fencing*.
I’d like to know what’s out there, if only to know what risks Tigger faces not that he respects properly boundaries. The trick will be locating the camera somewhere near enough to get an interesting image (large yard).
Today only the Browning BTC-5HD-APX-20C Strike Force Apex HD Trail Camera is $100 off and ony $90.
* No hunting in town has meant out of control sickly deer populations. They’ve destroyed everything they could eat in my yard, even toxic plants like California Buckeye, but I finally have them fenced out. Now my fruit trees can grow in peace, and I can have a garden again. But as a curious bonus, the mountain lions have seemingly causes a 90% reduction in the deer population in my neighborhood—hooray!

I’ve used them, 6 at a time. They work great!
I even made a personal "TV show" of three rats coming out at night and investigating one of our rooms. They were a riot. Like a live action Disney.
We rehabbed two coyotes for a year and when we released them we used the cams to follow them that first night and then see if they came back for food. One did.
The cams see color in the day and mono at night. I set for 30 second clips with 3 seconds between in case there was still an animal there after 30 seconds. Fun stuff.
DIGLLOYD: nighttime is infrared and the camera has an infrared flash to illuminate.
