I looked in search , found nothing on trail cameras.....

I live on the Oregon Coast , part of a supposed " Bigfoot " hot spot.( look at my other posts to see my belief on this)....Anyway , I just ordered a trail camera with infa red flash ( whatever it is called)....I only bought it because we have Elk , Cougars , Bear , Deer , fox , racoon , etc...And I would like to get some pictures further back in the woods....

I was wondering if there is a section anywhere where people post the pictures they get.I know , not a paranormal thing , but , it is a camera with no one around , in a secluded wooded area.I thought it might be cool to post what people capture ( even if it is not Bigfoot )...Anyway , if this is a bad place or idea , let me know...Or if anyone wants to see what lives in the "Bigfoot area" in the woods , I can start posting in about 2 weeks or so....

Cool deal....I am not sure how many people that will read this have trail cameras , I think it would be cool to post pic's from them....With so many " cryptid" reports out in the woods , wouldn't it be nice to have people across the UM community using these cameras?...

I will post pics , once I get it sent here , and working...

You know what sucks... I had that idea to use trap cameras before Destination Truth popularized it, and to be honest with you I don't believe they even have any pics that show something paranormal from there HIGH END Cameras.

I bought one last year... screwed a hole in the base to attach it to a tripod, and as I was drilling the hole, I went too far and cracked the motherboard chip... :wacko: ... it hasn't worked since... lol

Excellent idea Sakari. I'm looking forward to any pics you post. I would like to have a trail cam as I would certainly use it. How much do they cost on average?

Actually, you could be on to a classic "million dollar idea". While it may take more time/input than you might be able to expend, the concept is most intriguing. Were you to link up with the numerous sporting/hunting organizations (and their memberships) across the nation, you would be deluged with trail cam photos. This technology has become quite prevalent and is in wide application. One could approach the "publication" of such from more than one angle. Just for starters;

1) Unusual animal photos.

2) Mapping of species distribution.

3) "Unseen" animal behavior.

4) And, of course, evidence/non-evidence of purported unknown bipedal primates.

The list could go on. Approached from the perspective of a well planned research design/business plan, there may be the potential for a quite viable web-site, in addition to possible publication. Quite a range of possibilities.

Not at all in jest here. Good luck!

There are websites that have trail cam photo contests....One even had a " best Bigfoot" contest...There are numerous places to see trail cam photos , mainly hunting sites.I could dabble in it , I have a failing website I have tried that has 1000 hits in 7 months , and not even one order or question.....Maybe time to change it :)

Here are just a couple things...Last one I will put link , pretty good stuff there :)

"Believe in Sasquatch/Bigfoot/Yeti? Bushnell is offering a $1,000,000 to the first person who captures a verifiable photo
of the hairy beast on a trail camera."

"Don't believe? Field & Stream is offering a prize for the best attempt to cheat them out of their money."( contest is over , but pics can be seen at link below)

To enter, upload your trail cam photo to the Sasquatch category.   sausquach photo challenge

Sounds fun to me. Even if you only get pics of normal wildlife, I find the wildlife camera to be very interesting and fun. Maybe I'll look into getting one.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Someone needs to do a study on the sounds produced by trail cams in the non human auditory range. If Bigfoot is real, it has to be avoiding the trail cams either because it can smell or hear them imo.

That's a lot of money, but do they offer the prize to anyone who catches a bigfoot on a "normal" camera or is it just trail cam exclusive?.

That is an interesting idea. I had not thought of that before. You do see videos or pics of bears sniffing the things from time to time. But, bigfoot would really need a good nose or sensitive ears to detect a camera just sitting there waiting for something to break a light beam or trigger the shutter.

No study needed.They are silent ( at least the digital ones)....They make no noise at all while sitting idle , only the motion detector is active.Completely silent.

Now the ones with flash , may make noise when the picture is taken , but than it is too late.....The ones with IR flash , make no noise..

Can't wait to get mine set up.....I did find out they eat through c cell batteries pretty fast though.Depends how many pictures are taken...They offer a 12 volt set up.....Arghhhhh

As for bears that you see "sniffing" the camera....A lot of people put these cameras near feeders , and some of the cameras are not "camouflaged".The bear see it on the tree , and being very curious , may come take a look.....

As for "bigfoot" research ( I am not doing that) , they all use expensive camo cameras , and at night they are invisible.( might as well be).They also make it a point to have the camera hidden as well as possible , they are looking for a "creature"( lack of better word) that seems to be camera shy......Mine is camo , but not very expensive.

Anyway , hope that helped.....
