The Discovery of David's Creek - Remote Camera Setup



Continuing with my growing feral species obsession I took an afternoon stroll and looked for what I thought might be a decent sort of mountain creek that I had noticed on Google Earth. It is a tributary of the Gibraltar and Billy Billy Creek system and apparently was never worthy of an official name which is interesting because it is an interesting system in itself. So I hereby christen it David's Creek.. the sign is on order.

The most important lesson I learned in my time as a hunter was that everything needs to drink. This place is the third different spot I have hung cameras in the past month or so and the third creek in the same Gibraltar catchment. On the two previous settings I was astonished to capture 4 feral carnivores a few kilometres apart and separated by thick forest. This place is somewhere in the middle. I'm not sure how many days I will leave the cameras there but four days seems to give a fairly good indication on what is regularly about and I'll post any results here.

I took some video..
