I got out to a set that I have above the Columbia River, which you can see in the background. Happy to finally get a shot of a bighorn, which have eluded me until now. Funny thing about this country is that nothing seems to show up in the night. Had my cam on iso 200 for the night shots with the offset flash, but it detracts from the day shots. You'd think as hot as it is, there would be more nocturnal activity.

Thanks for looking! Brian.

Those might be the first sheep pics I've ever seen from a trailcam. Some beautiful country as well.

It's really good to see bighorns from a camera trap, don't remember ever seeing any posted before.

I used to live in Hermiston in Oregon for about 5 years (in the middle of 1970's) but didn't know bighorn sheep were any close. I seen them in Idaho several times. Course, never heard a motion Cams in those days either LOL

really need to see these, thanx

You'll have no problem getting daytime shots of bighorns in these temps. With their eyesight I think they probably prefer to be up and about in the daylight hours. Mature rams will be herded up somewhere near also. Are those California sub-species? That's the first Chukar i've ever seen on Trailcam. Nice!

Yeah, they are the California subspecies. Reintroduced some time ago and now well established. I'm trying to figure out where the rams are. Not sure if they go higher as the summer progresses. This set is low enough that the grass is already cured and brown. I'd think they'd go up and get greener grass.
