This image of a young black bear is from the Chimineas Ranch, taken at set 551.2 last November.
Craig checked the camera in mid-March. The cams are often inaccessible in the winter, so its a long haul. But we've gotten over 4 months of battery life using 2 external D cells.
Twelve days after the camera was set the bear climbed the outcrop to reach the bait and eyed the camera.
Craig still has a few cameras to check in the back country at Chimineas, and soon I'll also be checking the cameras in Humbolt County, as well.
