Trail Camera Setup and Pickup: Hidden Mountain Pool (Arizona Wildlife)
This pool was a nice surprise to find while hiking in the middle of our drought here in Arizona. It led to some of my best ever mountain lion trail camera footage and by far the coolest bear video I've gotten so far. This pool is mostly hidden by the grass and steep terrain around it, which is good for trying to get footage of wildlife. Drop a comment below if you enjoyed the video and tell me which Arizona wildlife you'd like to see more of. Thanks for watching.
Fun facts: Waterholes are classic ambush sites for predators. Look how nervous the deer is at 08:55.
Skunks will stomp to warn other animals they're about to be sprayed if they don't back off. That's what the skunk is doing at 09:40.
Listen closely at 12:54. The younger mountain lion lets out a little purr.
Species shown: Mountain Lion, Turkey Vulture, Black Bear, Coues Deer, Hognosed Skunk, Ringtailed Cat, Mexican Jay, Gray Fox, Blue Grosbeak, and some sort of bat (please tell me if you know the species).
