Sampling comments: "We used Moultrie M40 Digital Trail Cameras with 12v solar power panels... We installed 29 camera stations (approximately 0.5–1 km apart, approximately 100 m to both sides of the main trail (13.6 km). Each camera station was baited with a piece of meat which was hung from a tree branch unavailable to the fox and commercial lures... In addition, we hung an aluminum plate above the station as a visual attractant, and applied a catnip spray to the vegetation... Cameras were continuously active between October 2008 and May 2009, and were checked approximately every 15 days"
