Seven Coolest Bear Trail Cam Videos

Black Bear: Trail Cam (c) The Comfy Cabin, 2022

Hey Everyone!

The bears here are ‘hangry’ during their hyperphagia state. Read more here.  And oh boy, did they enter that stage of angry-hunger! They have been wandering around the neighborhood eating my neighbors’ grapes off the vine and smelling the delicious food from the camper’s trailers that are about 1 mile away. 

During hyperphagia, bears need to eat ten times the calories they would normally consume which is about 20,000 calories a day.

Bears can smell over 20 miles away for any delicious food or carcass on the side of the road. Our trail cams captured the black bears sniffing behind our home in the woods for anything yummy to eat.

Read more about the bear’s sense of smell from the Section Hiker here.

Enjoy the trail cam videos! πŸ™‚

Bucket Thief: Trail Camera, (c) The Comfy Cabin, 2022

Hello Friends,

A black bear stopped by my front porch and took an empty bucket with her.Β It was 5:12 am and she was extremely hungry. The bear has been looking for food and became desperate and stole the bucket from my front porch. Fortunately, one of our neighbor’s grapevines has ripened and the bear has been enjoying the delicious muscat grapes. (Note: The trail camera time was set wrong on the trail cam it’s 5:12 am not 5:12 pm)

Hello Friends, 

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. Read more about coyotes here. And here.

The Fascinating OpossumΒ on Trail Camera

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.

Kind Regards,

Hello Friends,

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.

Have fun with the assortment of videos!

Best Wishes,

Debra & Kurt
