    Question Unidentified Flying Object, WTH Is This On My Trail Cam?????

    I apologize for the quality of the pictures. They are night shots and when I resize them to make them forum friendly they lose clarity.

    I saw this on a pic (by left leg of feeder) and thought maybe it was a snake. It is straight but has wavy stuff fluttering at the sides. Sort of like some sea creature.



    8 days later I see it again but now I can see it is flying, not on the ground. It appears to spook the doe in the picture too.




    What the heck is this? What am I out there in the night with? Creepy! Bat?

    It's just a bug. Wings captured fluttering as it flies.

    I'm really thinking it is a bat. It looks like mouse ears on the top. I guess a bug could fly that straight but I think it is something moving faster. I also don't think a bug would trigger the camera like in the first photo?

    What camera and what trigger speed do you have that will make a difference.

    Bushnell Trophy Cam 5 MP IR is all I know. I was surprised that it took video at night!

    Edit: It says 1 second trigger speed.

    Nice cam, I have a slow shutter speed so it doesn't pick up stuff like that. I believe you have a faster speed and it will show things like that. But you go a nice camera.

    Mark, 1 second trigger speed is why you see night moths that look that long.

    This is the one I want but he doesn't show up often and is probably dead now. I think I will take a doe first to get some of the buck fever out of my system.

    If I were you I'd wear a bib for all the drooling you will do if that walked up in front of you.
