I need to buy a trail camera. I have friends that have trail cameras that i may get on board with me to set one up here.I have sometimes seen deer clear the leaves and needles to make beds to lie in. Put a trail camera up there. We will find this mysterious digger.
Did you ever see that show that used to be on Discovery channel, where the guy was in NC (I think) and he had a pet bear who could find him a couple of thousand dollars worth of truffles in a few hours?Pigs are used to hunt truffles but the big problem with pigs is that they will eat the truffles if your not on top of em to snatch it away from them.Dogs are trained as well to hunt them and the dogs will not eat them but they are not near as good at it as the pigs are.
habitat looked like this. very open canpopy area. probably a peraglacial dune. seems natural except for one fence post I found. very large area.
I would say in that area I found 15 digs like this ranging form these ones that look like big scrapes, to deep digs going more strait down. I've never seen so much mammal activity in one place before. Any suggestions of what mammal this was? grey fox or Coyote? what would they be looking for?
