A few years ago we had a trail cam on a very popular tank south of the valley in early December. We had quite a few cameras out that year and had been watching a family of lions (mom, 2 older youngins) frequent different tanks in the area. It was the first and only lions we have gotten on camera and we ended up with a lot of pictures from multiple different locations. We pulled our cards and reviewed the pictures. Sure enough the lion and her cubs were on film again, but here's where it gets interesting. We have pictures showing the lions at the tank and seconds later we show an archery hunter on film. He retrieves his arrow and starts combing the ground (appears he's looking for blood). Next thing you know our camera is being messed with (all on film). it was very obvious they were trying to tamper with or steal our camera. Then the two hunters put on face masks and combed the area for about 45 minutes. All of this might have been pretty fun to watch on a trail camera, but the problem is the kittens still had spots. I had spoken with the G&F officer down in the that unit on multiple other occasions so I forwarded him all the pictures. I know the G&F officer came down to review the area because we also got him on camera, but I never heard what happened after that. This is probably one of the most interesting things we have caught on camera. How very tempting it is to post the pictures, but I'm not sure of the legality of it because we are all innocent until proven guilty in a court of law. I would've thought he missed, but he spent too much time in the area after the shot and I also was able to identify a spot on the ground after the shot that appears to be blood. This is a picture of the lions. Down below in a reply I posted more pictures.
I was lucky enough to spend a great deal of time in the woods of Southern Arizona this year, and thought I would share some of it with you. I had several trail cameras deployed, and captured over 44 differnt bears on camera this year. One bear that looked like a Honey Badger, another bear with a yellow G&F tag in his ear, lots of cinnamon bears, a few bears taking a bath, and several Boars chasing Sows during the mating season. Here are a few of them, Hope you enjoy.
