“Great Blue Heron With Great Big Bluegill”

Photo submitted by danno1400


User Description: This is the Blue Heron that taunts me weekly by parading in front of my camera to show me all of my fish that he catches. I think it’s payback time when he swallows this huge bluegill.

“Captured the Yes”

Photo submitted by rzwanziger



User Description: On a brisk Saturday morning in April my girlfriend and I hit the woods for some turkeys. We had longbeards gobbling off the roost and headed our way but they caught a glimpse of our movement and turned around. We didn’t end up bagging a gobbler that morning but I was able to capture the moment I proposed and she said YES!

“Nice Buck by Anyone’s Standards!”

Photo submitted by tmiller075


User Description:_ My father and I have been hunting on some private property in LaSalle County Illinois for a few years. We hung trail cameras to find deer travel patterns throughout the area. This impressive and curious buck showed up within a week of hanging the camera. The buck was spotted by my dad during the bow season that followed but he never came within shooting range.

“That’s a Spicey Crayfish”

Photo submitted by skyhunter44


User Description:_ This trail cam picture was captured on a creek near my home in Middletown, NY. Looks like the dripping wet owl went into the water and grabbed the crayfish. Considering the look on the owls face and the flaming red eye, the crayfish likely went down fighting, and as a result the owl got a very hot meal.

“Facing a Bear”

Photo submitted by Gary Devine


User Description:_ In all the years that I have used trail cameras, I have never seen a raccoon come face to face with a black bear.

“Bobcat Close-Up”

Photo submitted by danno1400


User Description: My wife bought a purse with some gaudy fake tails hanging from it that she removed. I took one of those tails and hung it from a tree next to my trailcam. Sure enough this bobcat came in to investigate and I got this nice close-up.

“You Can’t Get Me”

Photo submitted by Turkeyhunter1_1


User Description: Before the season started I was getting many buck pictures during the day. Then just before bow season started I was only getting pictures of bucks during the night. I got this picture during the season which put it all in perspective! It was like the deer was taunting me. I never got a buck, but did get a nice doe during bow season.

“Painted Turtle Vs. Otter”

Photo submitted by jmg05005


User Description: I got this photo in a wetland using my Bushnell trail camera. The painted turtle was basking on this piece of floating vegetation when the otter popped up next to him! The turtle had dove into the water by the next shot and the otter was left staring into the camera.

“Piebald Buck and Buddy”

“Does a Bear Make Love in the Woods?”

Photo submitted by hobiecatrc


User Description: While hunting property outside of Dobbins,Ca We knew there was a bear in the area. We set up 2 tree stands and the trail cam to determine how and when the bear was coming through. Over a week or so we got this picture and many others of 2 bears coming into the orchard. Alas we were never able to get a shot as they never came in while we were on stand only on the day before or after.
