Stunning Wildlife In The Woods Of South Carolina

Hey Friends,

Our trail cam has captured footage of many bears, deer, coyotes, raccoons, and ravens this month. The bears have been bold and stopped by a few times at our front door…yikes! Sometimes it gets a little too close for comfort. Black bears can smell food 2 miles away.

Anyhoo, I decided to do something different with the trail cam videos. I have spliced together 20 short wildlife videos into one entire video for your enjoyment. Hopefully, this will make viewing the trail cam videos easier than clicking back and forth. Enjoy!

Kind Regards,
Debra Roinestad

Spring Wildlife on Trail Cam

Hey Everyone! 

April is an exciting time to see wildlife in the woods. All the animals are active this month. Black bears are emerging from their dens and showing up around the neighborhood. I spotted a black bear and her cubs a few miles from my home and captured a short video. 

Read more about the black bears here

Plus, the coyotes are roaming around at night, and the raccoons are busy socailizing and searching for food.

As always, enjoy the trail cam videos!

Warm Wishes,

Sly Fox On Trail Cam

Watercolor Artist: Unknown, Image In The Public Domain.

Hey Everyone!

There are two species of foxes here in South Carolina, the red fox and the grey fox. The trail cam captured videos of a sly red fox! Red foxes are not native to South Carolina, they were introduced by houndsmen during the late 1600s from New England and Europe. The houndsmen loved using the red fox for hunting because of their crafty and elusive nature.

Foxes have been found in folklore fables for several hundred years as cunning, wise, and adaptable. According to the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources, red foxes are declining in Southeastern states with the invasion of the coyote. 

The muzzle of the red fox is longer than the grey fox. Overall, the red fox favors open areas with lots of hedgerows. In South Carolina Lowcountry foxes begin to pair up for breeding in the late fall and early winter.

To learn more about the gray fox listen to South Carolina Public Radio, β€˜Nature Notes’ by Rudy Mancke click here.  β€œSo, what does the fox say?” click here. 🦊

Warm Regards,

7 Super Cute ‘Unicorn’ DeerΒ on Trail Cam

Hi Friends,

After viewing 198 trail cam videos, I collected the best to share. As of now, there has been a deer family hanging out in the back of the woods. You will notice that there is a deer on the trail cam that has one horn. I  believe that is how the unicorn myth got started.

I have been checking the web and found out that β€˜unicorn’ deer are rare in the wild and that they are called piebald fawns, a form of a genetic mutation. Here is a news segment about these adorable deer, click here.

Also, on the trail cam video one deer has a slight eye condition. One of the eyes is smaller than the other…I believe that is also a genetic mutation.

Plus, I recently learned that deer can smell humans about 1/4 mile away! They have 297 olfactory receptors (nerve cells inside the nose) that make their sense of smell extra sensitive. 

Enjoy the trail cam videos!

Lots of Love,

Debra Roinestad

5 Super Cool Raccoon Trail Cam Videos

A family of raccoons live in the back of the woods behind the cabin. Raccoons are extremely intelligent and resilient in the wild. The raccoons have been active since the black bears began their hibernation phase for the winter. Raccoons need to stay safe from bears because they eat raccoons. To read more click here.

Here are a variety of trail cams of the raccoons. Enjoy the trail cam videos!

Cha-cha-chunk…there’s a whole lot of chonky bears going around. Their tummies are filled with many goodies as they sneak around looking for something yummy to eat, or they just simply feast on ants and bugs on days when they are feeling lazy. 

Enjoy the trail cam, friends!
