CLICK THE LINK TO SEE FOUR MINUTES OF AMAZING CLIPS OF MULTIPLE ANIMALS AND A SNOW STORM (VIMEO)
These videos were taken by Gosia Pisowicz Stewart, who lives in east Estes Park. She said that the lions are much more active since fires. She saw the most activity between February 26 and 28. The clips were recorded between 7-8 a.m. and 5-7 p.m. She uses six Browning trail cameras.
Browning Trail Cameras are designed and manufactured by an avid group of hunters and outdoor enthusiasts. Overall, they offer excellent high-resolution photographs day and night, along with 1080p full HD video and sound. Some researchers report that they only found one American manufacturer that is leading the way in game camera production: Reconyx.
Sarah Lakeland has a fenced in dog space. “We always had chain link with chain link roof so nothing can get in. We had this set up for 16 years in Allenspark, and for eight years here in Estes Park. The dogs and cats had their pet doors going out into secure fenced in yard, so I did not have to worry about anything getting them when they went out for their last bathroom break at 10 p.m. I was able to love the wildlife and keep my beloved pets safe. I also had heavy pavers on the outside of the fence so the husky would not dig out. I hiked all the time with them so they did not feel as though they were confined in a fenced in area. Also had gates with locks.”
Gosia was asked about her video camera, as some said they have a trail cam and every breath of air and piece of grass moving sets it off, and, therefore, they have hundreds of clips to go through. She responded: “This camera with winter clip had exactly that – cabers filled up with snow falling, wind blowing, branches moving. Had three animal clips, but worth the three. Best to have cameras in spots with less vegetation. The mountain lions activity is in the area where I don’t have much empty clips since there are no branches close. Trimming as much as possible at front of camera is a key. I know the pain, but check often so you don’t get too much at each time to go through.”
