While hunting bear this weekend in Escanaba Mi, I was doing some scouting. On my way out of the woods about 10 feet from the road I came across a bait pile of corn. I looked around and found the brand new cuddeback up on a tree NOT locked up. So I peaked around and noticed a sticker on it the camera. "It said Missouri Departmenet of Conservation." I was kinda puzzled, so I peaked around the other corner of the tree and a note had been nailed to the tree saying this was from the MIDNR and that they were using this camera as a study for preditors. I thought that was kind of funny.. Anyway it had a phone number to call if I wanted to find out more info about these. I called it, and one can volenteer to do these studys for the DNR. I thought that was kinda cool to.. Itd be a neat way to see whats in your area with out having to buy a camera. Pretty neat stuff!
