For those of you who do your own butchering, try taking your game cameras and putting one on the remains. Here are some samples. Some of these are sheep butchering remains and some are deer. The results are the same.

It's a fisher. Fishers have had a remarkable range expansion helped in some part by people. WV introduced them to help control porcupine I think Martins are limited to only the Dacks. There is probably good habitat in the Catskills. Does anyone know if there are martin in the southern forest preserve?

My dog had a run in with a porky last year, glad I didn't shoot  the Fisher.attachicon.gif0601131919.jpg

He let me pull everyone out within a half hr, no infection or any problems after.

 

My springer got into a porkie. That dog would let me do anything to him EXCEPT pull out the spines. He put his teeth on my arm and squeezed - no pain, just a warning. We had to knock him out.

 

The Barred Owls will spend time scavenging. This one only spent a moment. It may have been getting mice - which have been triggering the camera a lot. The Great-horned Owls seem to not scavenge. The come in and leave. I assume they are getting mice and shrews, and the occasional flying squirrel.
