Made a new thing for the gamecam…

I’m getting interesting results from having relocated the gamecam to the wide bend in the wash, but the target stands is a lousy location for obvious reasons of the incoming fire variety. Particularly since I’m hoping to sight in a rifle later today. So I made a thing.

Last month sometime I sent away for this camera-mounting gadget made to screw into trees, which gives me options that don’t limit me to tying the camera to things with a web belt. Time I used it – I fixed it to an old 4X4 that I mounted upright at the bend of the wash well away from bullet splash, and now I can hope for the benefit without the disadvantages of the location.

Nothing much of any interest going on last night…

…though I wonder where this little guy thinks he’s going. Probably going to try his luck pushing down the metallic target stand, just to get an early start on being a dick to Uncle Joel.

I’m thinking maybe I should preemptively brace that stand like I did the other one. It didn’t take very long…

    Wow! Is that a haunted cow or something? He just appears, then disappears!

    I’ve never been entirely clear on exactly what will or won’t trigger the camera. It follows some things from one side of the frame to the other, and of other things I just get a snapshot or two.

    Yes, I think the bracing would be a good idea.

To the stake with the heretic!
