What’s the weirdest thing that has showed up at your feeder? I have two. The weird one was a donkey showed up. No one had a donkey. Saw it once and never again. Had a Great Pyrenees show up and hang out for a good while. Strange part was no one around the place owns a Great Pyrenees. It was a slow hunt so watching the dog sniff around gave me a little entertainment.

I had a Dodge flatbed (with driver) show up on a trail camera last week. After a couple of hours with my paranoia going off the charts (and saying to myself "Of course it would be a Dodge,") I put together it was a lost cedar pushing contractor. laugh

I don't think these guys have run across a game camera before.

The weirdest thing for me was an Axis. It apparently got out of the high fence place across the county road from us. It showed up on camera one day and no one ever saw it.

I jumped a emu behind one of my feeders in east Texas once. Pulled up to check it and an emu popped up and ran off. Thought about shooting it for a split second.

The only other thing was we had a feeder that had a short in it, when the wind blew really hard it would move the barrel and it would go off if it touched just right. Had a bad windstorm one night and it must have spun constantly because the next morning there was about 100 lbs of corn laying on the ground.

About 8 am here comes a badger, he waddles up to the pile, goes spread eagle laying on his belly and eats corn for about an hour, then got up and waddled off.

No deer or pig wild come near that badger


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

Bull elk from a local high fence place. I called the owner and he said I may as well shoot it. No way to catch it. Never saw it so, it moved on.

Years ago after emus became popular and the market later crashed, I had two walk up to my stand looking for someone to feed them. Not sure exactly how long they lasted in those East Texas Piney Woods.

I had a gopher find the corn last year, fun watching him pop up out of several differing holes grabbing corn.

Somebody dumped off 3 pot belly pigs. They hung around the cows for some time. Wife taught them to eat Cheetos.
You could holler Cheetos and they would come running.

High fence, low fence, no fence, it really doesn't matter as long as you're hunting!

I thought this one was pretty strange. He actually stayed around for about a month and ate a lot of corn! lol

I've also gotten pics of several rattlesnakes including a couple I ended up killing at the feeder.

northern Burnet county along Mesquite creek, early 2000s, no livestock on the place. early one morning, I start seeing something at the feeder as its breaking daylight that looked like a Charolais calf, as it got lighter, I realized it was some type of exotic as it was way too big for a whitetail in that area. I suspect it was a white fallow but not sure. A few days later across the creek I saw two more mixing in with several grown whitetail does at 3 different feeders but they were 8-10 inches taller than the WT at the shoulders. I knew nothing about free range exotics at the time.

another place northern Burnet county along the south Rocky creek around 2012. Heard something and looked out to see a porcupine waddle within a few feet of the stand. This was the first time I had ever seen one in central TX and I grew up there. Ugly little creature. He waddled on up to my feeder and ate for a bit. Later that same season I saw it up on top of a hill at a different feeder. At this same lease, there were free range Llama that showed up from time to time but no one in the area knew who they belonged to or where they came from.

SW Crockett county 2-3 years ago, late in the day as it was getting dusty dark, something shows up at the feeder pen but it was dark enough I couldn't exactly make out what it was but looked like a small version of a mountain lion. It was very dark in color, slender body, long tail, definitely not a coon and considerably larger than domestic house cat (plus not a house within 10+ miles). The LO and i believe it was a Jaguarundi passing thru from northern Mexico.
