Since things are going a bit slow, here's a question? How many of you have been surprised to encounter your own lost equipment when on your camera trap rounds? Maybe you didn't even know it was missing. I'll confess this has happened to me several times. Once it was a box wrench, but this spring I found a stiff leather glove on the trail not far from a place I'd set a camera last year. Couldn't find the mate, but I was lucky -- a month later I found it farther up the trail. Both were as stiff as cardboard from winter rain, but just wearing them them broke them in again.

Anyone else?

Once I found two camera of my cameras at a set, one was setup on the tree working as it should, and one I had accidentally left the pelican case opened on the ground. It was open all winter so you can guess how that went! A couple times I found cameras out that I haven't checked for a year because I forgot I put them out at that location and some of my most important photos have come that way. I usually don't carry any tools with me to set cameras besides the cameras themselves so that makes it harder for me to lose things :)

I came across a cam that I didn't even know I had misplaced, boy did that make me laugh and smile. I've come back to a set only to find my knife still sticking out of the tree where I left it. I use my knife stuck in a tree as an object to line my sight up to where I want to place my camera. Finding bolts, washers, batteries, cards is the norm for me Chris. I'm always leaving stuff behind but so far I have never lost a camera forgetting where I left it....touch wood.

I put a Reconyx out in the creek behind my shop a couple years ago. Then forgot about it. Earlier this spring I remembered and went to look for it but can't remember exactly where I put it. I have walked the creek a couple times but it is too thick with vegetation. This fall, after the first freeze it will be a lot easier to find. I hope.
