Tim Gearhart from deep in the woods of Colorado was setting up his trail cameras in the backcountry when he lost his sunglasses.
After a few days of letting the cameras take pictures of things that move, he came back to the trail cams to retrieve the images and after he reviewed them he got an idea of what happened to his sunglasses.
Photo images showed a cow elk chewing on the sunglasses in front of the trail cam and we can imagine that the plastic probably isn’t as tasty as chewing cud.
Fortunately, the cow elf was nice enough to not run off with the sunglasses and instead, it left them on the ground in front of the camera.
Tim now has a new souvenir to go along with his images of the cow elk chewing on his shades. The good news is Tim now knows this area is a place where elk may be crossing through so there’s good luck there during hunting season.
Wildlife experts say that trail cameras have become a way of life for many hunters who are looking for a way to scout for activity in their area. The cameras tell hunters when bucks and bulls return and have an understanding of how many animals are in an area.
Hunters like to keep an update on a specific animal they might be chasing and gathering this kind of specific intel saves a lot of time and footwork. Most importantly, it helps to improve the odds of being successful during hunting season.
