My hike the other day I was following an animal trail through the forest. Eventually I lost track of the trail. I must have missed where they turned at some point. At any rate there is was with only my compass to go by in finding my way out. After a mile or so I came across this. It was solid underneath with a couple of wing nuts holding what must have been a removable bottom in place. There was open space between the louvers. No wires or electronics. In fact it looked as if no one had been around in the area for a very long time as no trail, path or tracks were leading to it.
Nearby a couple small trees had these tags.
And the entire area was staked off with three of these forming a triangle shaped plot.
The white thingy is in the background just to the left of the tree.
I have found the strangest things just by accident wandering aimlessly through the forests of Annadel.
I am still looking for my first Bobcat and Mountain Lion.
