Adventures On My Trail Cam

We’ve lived on our beautiful country lot since 2004, and in all those years have been treated to an abundance of wildlife. In my yard, I’ve seen bears, wolves, coyotes, even a bull moose (highly unusual since we’re too far south for most). Our property is around ten acres, with forest and field on just about every side, so I mentioned to my wife about setting up a trail cam in our backwoods, to see what it would capture.

Well, the wonderful woman went out and bought me two! I set them to ‘video’ and set them up. It didn’t take long for me to get some spectacular clips of our local wildlife, and I wanted to share them with you.

First up, we have Mr. Wile E Coyote. He was most curious and wary of the strange one eyed creature in the tree.

Randolph was another mystified denizen of the local flora.

Here, we can see that Randolph is contemplating the possible truth behind Orwell’s 1987!

Has the Loch Ness Monster become a land dwelling beast?

Born and raised on a farm near Brockville, Ontario, Mark Bierman's childhood consisted of chores, riding horses, snowmobile races across open fields, fishing trips to a local lake, and many other outdoor adventures. He was also an avid reader of both fiction and non. Transitioning towards adulthood also meant moving from the farm and into large urban areas that introduced this country boy to life in the big cities. After a short stint as a private investigator, he moved into the role of Correctional Officer, working at both Millhaven Institution and Kingston Penitentiary, until it closed.

  1. I love trail cams and wildlife cams!
    A family member was out doing yard work a few days ago in New Mexico, and, about ten feet away, a mountain lion that had been resting in the shade of a tree popped up and leaped over the fence and ran away…

  2. You’re lucky to live on that land, Mark. I’m a bit green. 🙂 Great videos! We see deer around our neighborhood all the time, which is nice. I hope you’ll share more videos, too.

  3. These were great! I live in town now, so the best I get is my neighbors’ dogs, the birds that won’t leave my car alone, and the occasional rabbit in my landscaping. Loved these.

  4. What fun, Mark!! Thanks for sharing these! You know, you might even pick up some paranormal activity on the cameras. Orbs show up great on camera when you cannot see them with the naked eye. 🙂

  5. Nice videos Mark. We have a deer and a fawn around our house, most of the times I meet them at the hill nearby. They stand and watch me as I do. These are quite friendly as compared to the ones I meet near the creek, whenever I visit my grandkids. There, the peacocks and turkeys visit us everyday. We watch the majestic birds from our windows quietly.

  6. A beautiful spot and some wonderful wildlife catches, Mark! We’ve put ours out on the Magical Trail last fall but only captured a squirrel. You remind me I need to recharge it and get it back out there. I’d like to see who is doing all the digging. Thanks for sharing all the amazing videoes 🙂

  7. Love them. How do you survive knowing that you live next door to these critters, especially that last wooly mammoth? Lol
