    This is going to be mounted on a tree tomorrow about 20ft up. I am trying to attract any raptors, such as hawks, owls, or other birds of prey. I hot glued the mouse to the perch and added some feathers for movement. The perch is 3ft long and I will mount one of my homebrew cams at the base of the perch. We'll see how this works out.

    Uh don't think I wasn't feeling kind of stupid when I was doing it. But like any camera addict, I will do almost anything for a good or unusual pic.

    Get good photo's then put your "Raptor Photo Kit" with instructions up for sale. Make a few quick bucks.
