A letter from a loyal customer...
We hunt on a ranch is West Texas in Robert Lee. We have 5000 acres that we hunt that was hit by a wildfire that to my understanding was started by a lightening strike. I wasn't there so I can't tell you if there is any truth to that or not but nonetheless myself and several other leasers were effected by the fire. We did lose several blinds, feeders, cameras, and other accessories to boot.
We made a trip to the lease on April 16 after we had heard about the fires on the lease, not sure what I was to expect when I got down there. After I did, I couldn't believe the destruction that could be caused by mother nature in just a matter of minutes. If you look at the time and date stamp on the game cam you can see that at 2:13 skies were clear as far as you could see but at 6:32 it took some pics of smoke and then at 6:33 everything was on fire. As quick as it goes up in flames, it would appear that it moves on.
If you look at the last sequence of photos that the game cam takes you can see that the camera starts to lean with every pic. The best I can determine is that the tree that the game cam was in was on fire and as it burned the camera fell to the ground, only to burn the lens of the camera. The outter case was burnt but the SD card seem to be fine (wish I could say the same for my cameras). I had 4 cameras up and this is the only one that did not burn up completely. In the aftermath pics you get just some of the idea of damage that was caused on our property. I know this is not much of a story but I all I have to go off of is the pics just like you. But as in many cases, these pictures say a thousand words.
