Wow, there was a lot of activity on the trail camera this month! Here’s a unique assortment of wildlife that our trail camera captured. It seems that mid to late November was the busiest yet. On the trail cam, you will see a one-horn buck, a wild sow and much more! Plus, the bears have not gone to sleep and are still looking for food.
On these trail cam videos, you will find a mix of adorable deer with 3 sets of strange and mysterious eyes in the background.
What do you think these strange and mysterious eyes are in the background?

P.S. Back by popular demand. ❤️ 👍 I added more bear trail cam videos! An old bear hangs around the back of the woods. He loves looking for bugs as a midnight snack. He has large butt as he stands right in front of the camera on the last two videos.
Our trail cam captured footage of this coyote searching for food at night and exploring the back of the woods. Coyotes first appeared in South Carolina 30 years ago and continue to expand in numbers. In Autumn young pups leave their mother and search for food and territory. Coyotes prey on small animals such as rodents and rabbits. Their diet usually consists of small insects, berries, and fruit.

A misunderstood animal that is harmless and quite interesting is the opossum. Opossums are not aggressive and will run away if they encounter a threat or play dead. Opossums are resistant to venom and prey on snakes such as copperheads and rattlesnakes. They can benefit your garden by consuming small insects such as beetles, slugs, and snails that damage gardens.
The trail camera has been extremely active capturing coyotes, squirrels, bears, ravens, turkeys, and deer as autumn is quickly approaching. It’s time to gather food and build a cozy home for all the wildlife in the woods. Hibernation for the bears is in October. The hummingbirds are getting to ready migrate soon for warmer weather as they gather around looking for nectar in the woods. The deer and coyotes do not hibernate and remain active throughout the year.
It’s so rare to capture a hawk on a trail camera. We feel very lucky to have captured footage of this guy (on the right) that landed at the back of our cabin. I love the attitude and entitled stare at the camera. 🥰 To read more about hawks in South Carolina visit Wild Bird World.
Here are videos of a cool coyote that showed up at the back of our cabin. This guy is fearless and hunting for prey. Coyotes don’t hibernate and remain active in the winter and throughout the year! To read more about coyotes visit Wildlife Boss.
Which do you like better, coyote or raven? Please let us know. Both have the same instincts of survival and behavioral patterns. Read more from fellow blogger Jane Kessler, on Coyote Yipps website click here.
“Except for feather, fur, size, beak, teeth—well, almost everything important—there are similarities between these two very disparate critters.” —Jane Kessler
