  2. Michael Hutchins wrote: The pictures were taken from cameras set up in two adjoining fields. Wood ducks flying to nest early in the morning. The hen decided to sit in my blind for over an hour but was called away to be with the Tom which you can see in the background. My cameras have caught flydowns, coyotes stalking, and a hawk attack on a tom. Nature is wonderful.

  12. Phil Hammell wrote: This one came looking for the doe. The other 3 bucks that showed up where no match.
  13. Amy Newport wrote: This trail cam photo was taken by our late great friend and avid outdoorsman Pat Wagner. A couple of winters ago he had two wolverines that came to visit his trail cams often, he affectionately named them Wilma and Wally and figured they were a mating pair. This photo captures one of them coming for a midnight snack.
