Trail Cam

I bought a trail cam for the yard. Got me thinking about bringing it next time we go to the Island. Has anyone done this?

Trip Trail Planning

Dufresne's Book is a great planning source. He has put trail maps up on his page. Click on the link and page down to the Trail Guide section.

2018 Winterstudy

The Wolf Moose Winterstudy has bugun. The Crew helicoptered over and did a quick survey on the 16th. I checked the Wolf Moose site, no pics. FB had pics. https://www.facebook.com/Wolves-and-Moose-of-Isle-Royale-153522341415661/?hc_ref=ARSo_K9JSrNfvEV9swGKCdUPsXeRD6ZW9qCYGulpE3GHnn6JYfE4-kfvIQLwakKAJ5s

Shifting Magnetic North Pole

Saw this, thought it was interesting given the magnetic compass issues some have experienced on IR.
