Sampling comments: "Ten remotely-triggered digital cameras (Game Spy 200...) were deployed from May 2007 to May 2008... cameras were placed ≥1.5 km apart to minimize the possibility of double sampling" of coyotes and "We attached cameras... approximately 40 cm above the ground... we employed the use of a scent attractant... From 9 May 2007 to 14 May 2008, a total of 3234 camera-trap nights were accumulated"
counts are of photographs, not events
