So last week I put out a couple of gallons of chicken guts and blood. I buried them under some willow and put a trail camera on it to see what was in the area. I went out today to check on it, my batteries were dead and then when I got home I discovered I forgot to put the memory card in the camera... So sad...
Anyhow, there was a bunch of small tracks all around the bait and parts of it scattered here and there. My question is: could that be squirrels, do they eat meat? Or have I in fact finally found an ermine? The tracks were side by side and spaced 8-10 inches apart.
I set 3 traps around the area of the bait pile, I baited them with moose trimmings that were fairly rank.
Thanks in advance!
