Do you know the feeling when you start downloading and you see this.
The trap cam was put out for less than 2 weeks, ideal spot :wink: .
This look to me like the male that we had first on the night drive sighting, based on its size.
This was also in the area of the Black Ridges.

AG, it looks like you have chosen some good spots for your cams but, as you say, you are getting some over-exposed (white-out) shot at night. You might want to try changing the "LED Control" setting on your Bushnell to 'low'. It will mean that the flash won't reach as far but the closer animals won't be as over-exposed.
Also, as a general rule, try to aim the cam as parallel to the ground as possible. If its pointing slightly down, or if the ground slopes slightly up, then there is a lot of flash 'bounce' and the shots are often over-exposed. Hope this helps!

@ Trailcam-Jez, will take that into consideration in future.

I have been off-line for a considerate period with regard to e-mail, but I'm up and running again.
The following pics were sent to me by the Conservation Department.
