Sampling comments: "Research was conducted from 30 July 2009 through 17 September 2009... Remote camera-trap setups (i.e., camera) consisted of a [digital] Reconyx silent image RM45 rapid-fire passive sensor camera... All trap set-ups were baited with a sprinkle of Shake Away (a commercial animal scent consisting of bobcat and coyote urine granules) and a 2 cm cube of beef liver, which was placed in the center of the scent station area... Each study site contained six randomly placed trapping stations ≥ 100 m apart" of which two included camera traps, which "were switched between trapping stations" nightly
