Weasel, I have heard they can smell the film and eat 35mm cameras more often.

Tracks were heading toward one of my baits. Don't mind the rain makes clean a slate. Blackberries getting past peak. Chokecherries getting close to ripe. Have not checked acorn status. So far so good snack logs still getting cleaned out.

Cool snack logs, weasel. Sounds like things are shaping up pretty well for you there. 8-)

She is standing up and something must have made a sound in the back ground. One wouldn't think such a critter would chose to sniff the camera first with three snack logs in the background full of tastee treats.

This was previous to other pic. The tops of her ears must have tripped the camera. I just picked up/put out a new Bushnell Bone Collector, so hope to have more soon.

My most recent photos are BMP so I have to figure out how to change that to get them in here. But this is a night hit from last week. I am getting some daylight hits. So I got that going for me, Which is nice. Would these be second year cubs? I put a small hollow log with plugged ends out with a small amount of bait. I figured they would sniff it out when the rest is gone. :idea: But, Wrong!, she seems to want it right in the here and now.

I just took inventory: 22 55 gallon barrels of sugar cones-10 55 gallon barrels of mixed cookies. 57 Gallons of Vanilla. 400lbs of chocolate frosting. 4000lbs of pie filling (Peach Danish, Black Raspberry, But-R-Cookie, Cherry, Raspberry, blueberry). 2000lbs Cake Mix (Devils Creme Cake mix & Brownie Mix). Popcorn. Anise & Bacon Gel and Spray from Bear Scents LLC. By the 4th of July I should have another 5000lbs of Pie filling and another 15 barrels of sugar cones, and what ever I can get my hands on. I will be very cautious with the amount of Chocolate & Brownie cake mix I use. That should do it :)
