Game/Trail Cameras
« on: August 28, 2015, 02:52:06 PM »
Do you worry about being caught on game/trail cameras?
I've thought about it in the past & have kind of kept an eye out for them while I walk thru the woods. As far as I know, I haven't been caught on one yet, but you really never know. They can be well hidden & we would never know unless someone revealed what they found when they checked their camera.

What just brought this back to mind for me was that I have a couple cameras set up on my property & checked one today. Guess what? I had not even given it a thought the other day when I was out working my field.





There were several more revealing pic's too, but I figured these were good for now.

That thought crossed my mind the other day as I hiked through some hunting areas set aside by the state. I really don't know if the cameras are more of a private reserve thing as much as a public hunting area. My feeling is that others would know the places to set up cameras so they could be ripped off on a public setting.

I had a game trail camera for a couple of years.  I set it up on my land to see if anyone else was about.  I got some photos of myself on my summer walks, and some deer, but that's about it except for lots of tree pictures on windy days.

I would not be surprised to learn that hunters or wardens, etc., have set up cameras on other trails.  Doesn't matter though.

The forest service is not interested in anything more than keeping the place intact for generations. The nudity issue is just extra work, issues and controversy that they could do without. If they are monitoring game, then it might be good for them to see lots of naked hikers, have a few laughs at the office and relax about nudity on the public lands. Maybe they would feel a bit guilty about intruding on peoples privacy and take that attitude the next time restrictions came up.

Busted your self on your own land!  :D I gather that you have a relatively private abode, to be engaging in nude tractor riding. Nice.

I don't have a large piece, but behind the house it's completely surrounded by woods. It used to be thick brush, but as the years passed it has become more open woods. I'm starting to be able to see thru the woods to a nearby power line that get's used by atv'rs, dirt bikers & hunters. I've taken the attitude that if someone sees me back there, they are intruding on my privacy & I don't really care if they see me. I am not aware of anyone ever seeing me out there, but it could have happened.

My free ranging is usually urban rather than rural, and increasingly one has to be aware of domestic CCTV. However, having recently installed a camera myself after my van was broken into I've realised that this sort of recording is probably never played back unless there is a known incident - such as a van break-in - to be looked for. My system starts recording when it detects movement; when I first installed it I looked at a few of the results and got only neighbourhood cats! In truth I prefer the camera acts as a deterrent rather than to catch someone after the event.

Regarding road, or even dirt track, users seeing you in passing, my urban exploits have shown that drivers are too fixated on their road ahead to look either side, and when travelling at speed they have time to register the details of what's there if they do look. Try it yourself from the driving seat sometime.

I can thoroughly endorse Peter's comments about drivers and other car occupants, often standing where I am shown in this picture when unexpected fast moving vehicles pass. The gate posts provide perfectly adequate cover.



As far as cameras are concerned,I am sure I have been regularly recorded in urban settings such as by the camera between the first two lamp posts in this picture.

with huntin club leasing a couple thousand acres next to us,   gettin caught on a game camera is a possibility.  I did find one out there once on other land way over the other side of the canyon,  but was clothed at the time.     I figured I could live with the slight risk.   It'd be the huntin guys looking at the pictures,  and if they found me passing naked on foot or on a horse it wouldn't matter anyway.   I figure if anything ever comes back to me I'd treat it as no big deal.   "yah?  so what!   not the kind of buck you were hoping to see."

Yes, we who get naked in towns and cities are likely to be caught on video equipment that now is ubiquitous.   I often doff my clothes in a parking lot before getting into my car to drive home naked.  BINGO!  I'm on video surveillance.  But NOBODY gives a rat's behind if some old guy gets naked.  If anything it gives some low paid functionary a chuckle, and perhaps permission to try it next time. 

bottom line:  Nobody cares if they see a photo of a human being.   Everyone enjoys the photo.  Nobody gets uptight about it.

Why is that Peter - and I assume that's at night?

I used to walk around my neighbourhood naked on warm nights. There is a sense of empowerment in getting away with it without being seen, but I haven't done it for a long time now. It no longer seems worth the risk. I much prefer daytime rural.

when travelling at speed they have time to register the details of what's there if they do look.

I think you mean "no time to register..."  :)

Now that I have retired and to be honest don't care if I'm seen or even if it's known that there are naturist tendencies there is little or no fear of cameras. There is no reason to broadcast my personal beliefs to the world but there will be no denying them. That being said I fear the greater danger for those who have something to lose by being found out need to fear drones more than the stationary cameras. The types of cameras in the city proper are only looked at if they might help solve a crime, as for the game cameras I agree with Bob. Someone might get a kick out of seeing a naked person but that is as far as it would go.

It's funny, really, coming across this just now. I'm currently living in Saskatchewan, right in the middle of the southern part of this Canadian province, and I've done some freehiking this year. Among other things, I came across a hunter's "tree blind"--basically, a ladder to a perch in the tree, for those wanting to shoot a deer.

I couldn't resist snapping a quick photo of me on the ladder in the altogether -- but now I'm wondering... Was I captured by another camera?
I feel my best when naked in the world, especially in wide, open spaces, wherever and whenever possible.

I try to remember to watch for trail cams, but I've never found one other than my own (it broke).  Some of the new ones i see on TV shows are small and easy to hide, unlike the bulky ones from ten years ago.  We may walk right past them and never know.

I still haven't noticed any cameras in the areas I visit nor has there been any evidence of anyone using tree stands. Not being familiar with the rules maybe those things are outlawed until hunting season officially begins? I have seen postings on Facebook pages where guys got photos on their own land but nothing I recognize from my favorite places. It's beginning to become that time of the year as the local police issued their yearly warnings about deer-vehicle collisions.

It is nearly inconceivable to me that there are so many deer as to create problems. I have always thought of people coming out here in the west to hunt from other states. I have had no idea.

So, why do they issue warning at this time of year? Deer on the move? Plentiful, as the spring young have grown? Migration because of weather?
