Trail Camera Photos

Please enjoy these photos of wildlife utilizing water developments from trail/game cameras placed at water projects.  Some of our projects have had trail cameras placed at them by project managers to view wildlife usage after construction.  We have also helped fund various research projects looking at the benefits of guzzlers and other water developments through the use of trail cameras placed in the field at these sites.   You can see from the images below that water developments benefit a multitude of wildlife species across the arid West.

Kansas Trail Cameras
#425 Benefits of Water Developments on Wildlife in Western Kansas Research Study (KS) - Trail Cameras

This graduate student research study in Kansas was completed on 4/5/2012. The goals and objectives of this projected included: 1) identifying species use of guzzlers; 2) assessing the benefits of guzzlers on species richness; and 3) assessing the benefits of guzzlers on the probability of occupancy and relative abundance for various wildlife species.

Utah Trail Cameras
#274 Utah Guzzler Study (UT) - Trail Cameras

This research study was completed on 3/15/2004.  Brigham Young University conducted this study to look at the effects of artificial wildlife water catchments (guzzlers) on wildlife population dynamics and habitat usage in Utah.

#323 Larsen's Guzzler Research I (UT) - Trail Cameras

This research study was completed on 7/25/2005. This study looked at the impacts of water developments in Utah on populations of Chukars and other wildlife species in an effort to increase efficiency and effectiveness of water developments across the West.

#331 Larsen Guzzler Research II (UT) - Trail Cameras

This was a continuation of the study started in 2005 and investigations were completed on 8/22/2006.  Part 2 of the study continued to look at the impacts of water developments in Utah on populations of Chukars and other wildlife species in an effort to increase efficiency and effectiveness of water developments across the West.

#366 Utah Guzzlers Study (Larsen) Phase III (UT) - Trail Cameras

This was phase III of the Larsen Guzzler Research study started in 2005 and investigations were completed on 11/27/2007.  Part 3 of the study continued to look at the impacts of water developments in Utah on populations of Chukars and other wildlife species in an effort to increase efficiency and effectiveness of water developments across the West.  Phase III of this research study also involved temporarily removing fencing around some guzzlers to see if the dimensions of the fence perimeter affect mule deer usage of the guzzler.

#395-397 Guidelines for Effective Placement: Years 1-3 (UT) - Trail Cameras

These projects were a continuation of the Larsen Guzzler Research study started in 2005 investigating chukar use of guzzlers.  This 3 year study was completed on 3/30/2010.  This study worked to develop a document of "Guidelines for Effective Placement and Use of Wildlife Water Developments: Identifying Differences by Species, Sex, and Reproductive Status".   These guidelines help managers construct wildlife water developments to provide the largest benefit to wildlife across all species, sex, and reproductive status.
