Got some rain and a couple of dirt holes are filled to the top with water. Trap is bedded in waxed dirt so it's fine. What should I do ? try to remove the water and rebait ? Leave as is and risk iceing up ? Relocate set ? -Thanks
I had these listed in another post but I deleted as I had a little time to go through and see exactly what was what. My price is firm and I wont break up the lot at this time, if they don't sell in the next couple days ill just list them in groups on ebay at ebay at the higher prices that they would demand there which is obviously going to be allot higher than the $2.17 per trap that they are now. All these traps are good usable traps that were just dyed and waxed this fall.

I too will pack the snow down to bed the trap and create a disturbed area in front of the trap, dust a little snow on top of the pan. Depending on how I feel I'll make a small mouse hole for bait lure up high. Or elevate the bait (dip a stick in the bait. Once off my favorite fox sets in snow are cubbies especially walk through style. They take time to construct and reconstruct but fox love them in the snow. I will try to dig up some pics of my walk through cubbies.
I drive an hour and fifteen minutes to work one way, an hour on the expressway, I’ve tried 2 different tires and they suck...to me expressway driving is much different as it builds up with ice quickly...
2018 update, the Buskin Lake has cray fish now and lots of them. folks are setting minnow trap lines and getting quite few. tried a few but too much work. now where did these come from???? hearing reports of mink now and they are breeding too????? ermine all over just not ready yet, my target choice this season 9 bears from the road system so far harvested , afew still up in town and being pest , they are about done with them if they don t hole up. halloween pretty much a no show as kids afraid to bump into one pine apple express here this fall ,warm rain deer population doing some what better but still can be a workout report of a silver salmon caught at buoy 4 last weekend????[some kings too] picked up a.17 WSM just sighted in now. looking forward to see how it performs
Rain and snow brought water levels up at least a foot over night. I got soak to the skin, but managed to retrieve what I had left out. just no rats. Got 5 so, looks like a slim short season.. It about had my body done in by the time, Better lick next year, more rain expected in couple day.
I feel the opposite. My english setter became diabetic 4 years ago. 10 mL of Novolin N anywhere is well over $100. Walmart carries Novolin N for $25 and no prescription needed. Unreal. Walmart's pharmacy saves me over $1,000 every year on insulin. Now multiply that by 4 years.... that's more than $4,000 still in my pocket thanks to Walmart's pharmacy. I don't know how they can do it, but they do.
LOL I was born in 1963 so young no. But I have been shooting rifles of every kind since I was 6 . Take pride in my ability to shoot. For decades I would get calls from farmers to get rid of their ground hog problems. (yotes are doing that now) We used to drive around EVERY week end during the summer in a 1978 jeep C-J 5 Golden eagle and shoot whistle pigs. Since then I try to keep in practice. I also sight in rifles each year for people around my town and even some out of state. As for shooting off handed do it every year . Don't need or want shooting rail on my ladder stands. Have killed deer out to 250 before but never over 300. The one and only secret to shooting off handed is to take your time and time your trigger pull to happen as you pass over the animals vitals. TRUST ME ALL PEOPLE will wobble off handed with any rifle. Practice and timing are the key. With that said did I get lucky ? Maybe. But seem to find a way to get lucky every year.................
