Great video of their rubbing behavior. Since you've said you don't use an attractant, presumably it's just their own scent, or that of others, that prompted their rubbing.

The lessons of camera trapping! Great find. (I have a bear rubbing tree that's scent-marked by gray foxes. They also s-mark the lion scrape not far away.)

Woody, I suppose, because it's the right height, coyotes and other animals may pee on it. It definitely gets a lot of activity from small animals as well.

I'm finding I'm a lot more successful not using any lures and I really prefer the footage that I'm able to get as I'm capturing what the animals are doing naturally.

David how far is your camera from the stump and what do you have it attached to?

The camera is only 6-7 feet from the stump and it's attached to tree along the road. I wish I had the option of moving the camera back another 4 feet. There is just enough traffic from horse riders and hikers that I don't want to leave the camera unlocked on a camera stake.

Six feet and clearly the lions are not afraid of it. A red fox would take one look at it and get out of there quick smart. That is my observations here.
You must have it well camouflaged? I get really nervous about leaving a camera anywhere I think a human will frequent. I suppose with a population a 1/16 of yours here in Australia this isn't a big problem for me?

Thanks Ghosthunters! I usually don't narrate my videos but there's this kid in Georgia who I sent a trail camera to and he's really into wildlife. He is already capturing some amazing footage and he's only 4 years old!

Gentoo, the infrared light doesn't phase most animals. The only ones I've had spook are wolves and a few coyotes. I've had fox spook from a white flash but not infrared.

I take the risk of setting out cameras where people might walk by. I've been doing this for 14 years and only once had a camera removed from the site and I was able to get that one back.
