Here are a few
photos of jackal activity during a few nights around
a dead rabbit that was killed by a Rooikat. It makes
interesting footage, note the various things the
Here above we have a pretty much young dog, looking at
this photo I would say 4 years max, looking at the
photo he looks like he is going to urinate or has just
finished, hard to tell, but all these photos show
that because this dead animal has so much traffic and
so many dogs visit it – it brings in more and more.
Note his ears are
towards the ground.
This following dog below may be 80% the same dog as
the photo above, however some photo’s shows a much
older dog than the rest.
This looks like the same jackal, the time
2-57 maybe he
came back, this one also looks like a typical
scavenger, these photos reveal that the jackals are
active all throughout the night, and January, a
typical social period of his yearly cycle. Typical of
all the other photos all jackals have noses to the
ground, sniffing other jackals scents and also dead
prey. Also note that their tails are all hanging at 5
o clock, this is a typically relaxed posture.
NOTE his ears are
pointed to the ground!
This dog and the above photo are in my opinion 80% the
same dog. Note how the infra red camera picked up his
eyes, this is how you can pick up eyes with night
vision at over 500m away at night using no red lights
BELOW is a older dog, see how far more determined this
one is in studing the area!
Here above we have another dog - an adult, a big
mother, about an hour later just short an hour, see
how interested this old boy is of the area, chances
are he is new here, seems to also have fight damage to
his tail, but that maybe just some dirt, but looks
pretty coloured to me - seems pretty fat also.
This is why I enjoy setting cameras all over the
place, it reveals so much, a hunter will never get a
true feeling of whats happening on the farm if he does
not use this type of camera, it is vital to use as a
recce and to gather information.
In my years of predator hunting, the purchase of
night vision and trail cameras have been some of the
best purchases I have yet made!
Here above is the next night.;
This photo above shows this dog, it looks a lot older
than the previous first two photos, this was at
8-16 at night,
this is just as it got dark, early evening – in my
opinion this dog has visited this place a few times,
it now shows no interest at all, he just passes
through to get an insight as to who else was here and
what smells he can collect.
FINAL NIGHT PHOTO IN SEQUENCE
Below we have the last picture at night, if you set
the camera in a busy area, have a good bait in a good
position to get jackal dead centre of the lens you
will get footage, it is a bunch of fun!
- ( 4-22)
this dog looks like a pretty old boy to me,
interesting that if you look at my site you will also
see other photos of jackals in the day, and in
daylight they are a pack together, but at night most
photos reveal singles. Note the tails, all at 5 o
clock position, very relaxed body language.
See this jackals attention to the ground, also very
keen on whats happening here, this also looks like a
mature adult, but look at the pictures, the jackals
are active all night, and into past 8 in the morning
at sun up, offering the chance here of an early
morning stand from ground level without a bakkie and
See our site here for the hunt!!!
Check this big adult in the day, early morning at 5-54
in summer, overcast conditions.
WE ARE SORRY WE PASTE OUR NAMES OVER ALL PHOTOS BUT
WE HAVE FOUND THAT SOME PEOPLE STEAL PHOTOS ON THE
INTERNET FOR OWN GAIN
This was taken at 6-53 in the morning in summer, taken
on low resolution, captured from video. Trail camming
is fun! Notice how this jackal’s ears are far apart
and he is sort of slinking in his body language,
telling you that he is very cautious of something,
this is a very cautious dog.
