Hey guys, I checked my game camera this morning and this is what I found. I set it on 8/29/11 at 9:45. The first image occurred one hour and 11 minutes later. Whatever it was, then punctured the motion sensor and caused an overexposed picture in which you can see fur of some sort. Eight minutes later the camera took another similar picture and then the final photo that shows the dark shape. I have looked at the pics over and over and tried to bring out as much as I could on the over exposed shots, but to no avail. An odd thing to me, is that after the puncture, 2 shots occurred that were overexposed yet the very next picture came out very clear. How can that be? The camera was set four feet off the ground, strapped to a good sized tree at the Atchalafaya Delta WMA. At first I thought it was a big hog, but the ones I have taken at the Delta seem to have a much coarser type of fur. So that leads me to think it is a bear. Several years ago, a bear was sighted by multiple hunters on the Delta, but that was a very rare occurrence. So what do you guys think it is? Have you had a similar game cam experience? This is a first for me and I am very interested to hear your opinions. I will be going back with another camera to see if I can get a better photo.
