Moultrie Game Camera II

With some additional thoughts and suggestions from fellow blogger comments, I decided to move my game camera from a position in front of a cubby set to a position inside the cubby set. The plan was to be able to capture a photo of the animal actually eating / attacking / mauling the bait. My hope was that it would make for a pretty interesting picture IF I could get it to work. After a little manipulation of the cubby set, I was able to get the camera into its new position and after some initial testing (note my photographic example), I felt it was ready to roll.

In the end, it didn't work out quite the way I had envisioned and I need to slightly modify the cameras position to get a better angle. I did however capture this photo which I "believe" is a fisher? Please weigh in with your comments to say that you agree or that I need my eyes checked!

FYI, Camera is currently off the bait site and working to pattern deer on a trail near my treestand . . . with only two weeks of black powder deer hunting remaining I have pulled out all of the stops! To those of you still actively chasing whitetails this week and next good luck!


  1. I have no idea what it is, but at least you know (if you move the camera), you're in the right spot.

  2. After looking at it for quite awhile I am leaning toward it being a fisher but am not 100% though.

  3. Ooooh... now we're cooking. Can't wait to see what other critters stop by. Never heard of a "Fisher" before now... thanks for the nature lesson : )

  4. Thanks all for the comments. Weird happenings on the cubby bait site. Since I switched to the new camera I haven't been successful in having anything visit. Odd that it just suddenly went from hot to cold. Well maybe the chilly weather this week will activate it once more!


Thanks for posting a comment. Your thoughts and suggestions are much appreciated!
