    Default Trail hunting camera found on Whittier ramp dock

    While taking out last night I found a trail hunting camera on the dock. Nobody knew who it belonged to. I would like this to get back to its owner. PM me to ID. Thanks.

    Default Strange

    Last summer I found a digital camera on the street. I flipped through the pics to see if I could find anything out. The first pic on the camera was out the window of a hotel room. I was able to figure out which hotel based on the view. Later that day I called the hotel to see if anyone had reported their camera missing. The guy was still staying at the hotel and was more than happy to have his camera back.

    Turns out the guy was a writer, he used to write scripts to the TV show ER. Now he was working on a book about the WWII rescue boats out in the Aleutians. neat guy.

    I guess what I'm saying is look at the pics, maybe the guy tested the camera in front of his house or boat and there are some helpful pics.

    Default Trail camera

    I should have been more specific. This is a game trail camera. You mount it on a tree, and it will take pictures of game that walk by and trigger a sensor.

    Default Camera on cruise ship

    Wife and I went on a cruise in April. One night I was in the casino and came across a camera on a seat. I looked around but no one came. After some 20 minutes of gambling with no one returning I took the camera to the customer service desk and asked if any one reported misplacing a camera. So far no one. So, I left my name and room number. The next day I got a call. He identified it and we met up. He sure was glad to get it back. Never occured to me to look at pictures. That is a great idea. Hope you find the owner.

    Perhaps it was left to document the whittier launch circus.

    Default Thats funny!

    I agree Spoiled One. Truth be told, I wouldn't mind thinning some of that herd either. There was a permit with it for a bait station in PWS, but no name or info. Maybe they are still out there.

    I take a picture of my name address and phone number with every camera i own, incuding my game camera. Its a good idea to in order to help aid in getting them back if something like this happens to me. Hope you get it back to the owner and good on you for trying so hard.
