I just spent 2 weeks going through old 2x2 transparencies (slides) and digitizing them. Almost 18,000 slides. I scanned and digitized about 1 in every hundred. It was painful throwing the slides away after scanning, but these days, all but impossible to use them if they aren't digital. Anyway, came across some images that I thought some of you may enjoy. These are critters that I've trapped over the years for a variety of projects. Tigers, leopards, and brown bears were caught in foot snares. Cougars and wolves in MB750s. All are immobilized animals to be radio-collared and released or are photos of the animals before anesthesia. Hope you enjoy looking (I sure enjoy the trapping).

Sure has been a lot of fun over the years, but I still really enjoy catching skunks...

Those are awesome pictures. My kids enjoyed them all. Must have been something else walking in and seeing them all. Jon

Pretty sure I would take the leopard's pelt home with me even if it meant getting fired.

Really cool!

I bet trapping yotes and other "normal" critters is boring after what you caught!!

Thanks for sharing.

WISH I HAD MORE TIME TO TRAP!

Just lovely, every one, Jack grin

Love that shot of yourself and "big blue " every time. Cant get over how big he is....his head !

So glad you've been combing through all these .

Every one is part of your life and history ...very worth while in categorizing, in digital form especially.

Thanks for the share wink

Beautiful photo thanks for sharing

I did the same thing and digitized all my slides, negatives and my photos and while I kept some of the photos I threw a lot away

It was almost physically painful to do so because so much of my life was in there but your right that there not very useful if not digital

Thanks to all. It's been one heckuva ride over the past 50 years of chasing the predators. Actually, in complete honesty, I still really like each and every marten, red fox, striped skunk, and yodel-dog. Even the lowly muskrat and weasel still puts a grin on this old face. Don't think I could have asked for a better existence. At least in my mind, too, through nearly 50 years of research and fur-trapping, I am still humbled every day by the things that I don't fully understand. I'm still a babe in the woods, trying to learn more.

white17 - In the second picture is "Garth", a St. Joe River wolf. Anyone else in the picture is unimportant.
