It’s finally autumn in South Carolina and the wildlife have been enjoying the cooler weather. The mature bucks are filling their bellies with as much food as possible. On the trail cam video you will see a buck shedding the velvet from his antlers. This happens every season when the antlers have reached their mature size (see picture below). You can read more here from Realtree blog.

In addition, the black bears are now in their hyperphagia phase and are filling their bellies to the max!

Magical Coyotes & Other Wildlife Captured on Trail Cam

Within the woods is where the magic happens! That’s especially true when you capture a coyote on the trail camera. I compiled some recent trail cam videos of coyotes along with bears, ravens and deer. I hope you enjoy.

“Coyotes have the gift of seldom being seen; they keep to the edge of vision and beyond, loping in and out of cover on the plains and in highlands. —N. Scott Momday

So, what’s so special about the coyote? What makes them so magical?

 Here are three great reasons that make a coyote special.


First, coyotes are efficient hunters because of their sharp senses. They use mostly their sense of hearing and sense of smell to capture their prey. Whenever prey is not available, they will eat large quantities of berries and fruits.

Second, coyotes are extremely fast and can run as fast as 64 km (40 miles) per hour.

Third, coyotes are nocturnal and have nightly serenades of yaps and howls. Plus, their howls are a code for other coyotes. Coyotes have a pecking order (Alpha, beta, etc). Their howls let each coyote know who is in charge! You can read more on Decoding Coyotes Yips, Barks, and Howls.
