After almost 2,400 pictures of deer, it's exciting to get a couple bears. I'm sure there are lots of smaller creatures roaming the woods. If they would stand on their tippy toes, the camera might catch them. Here's how the trail cam works. The men in the family put some minerals like salt on the soil in front of the camera. Then when a deer wanders by for a lick, the movement triggers a picture. Maybe a tub of honey would attract more bears! We're disapointed that we didn't catch any coyotes. We sure hear them when we're camping. But I didn't hear them from the Holiday Inn Express!
