Now is the time to buy a deer cam, all kinds of specials. Some of the cheap ones are just that, low pixels, regular flash, smaller picture coverage area. Look for one with infrared flash and at least 3 megapixels. I have a Tasco and a Wildgame I use for the deer, both are 5 MP. The ones around the house and rabbit pens are Primos 3 MP.
I'm late to the party but all your windbreak and 15 pound rocks aside the wind down in cheyenne whips like a bastard. It will blow semi's completely off the road in the blink of an eye. I think 60mph gusts would topple a hive regardless of a pallet fence. Maybe I'm wrong but **** that Wyoming wind!!!

I dusted flour around the hives, 4 feet around in every direction. Went to the yard this morning, and my little nuc was knocked over, with nothing but rabbit tracks in the dust. We just had pretty high winds, so I'll assume it was that, but I still would like to get a game cam. There was no damage to the nuc; I had it tightly rachet-strapped together, and the bees seem to be fine.
Ben, what kind of rabbits do you have out there?
Ha ha ha! Just cottontails, but I do follow your train of thought.
