Well, my Bro and I went and checked the line yesterday. We pulled up to our set on the mountain and here is what we found, a pack came by and set off the trap but didnt get caught. grrrr The lure I used was the unmarked bottle I found in my Dads stash.
This set here the pack came by and ate the remaining kill. We had a toe catch on a blackie, but he got away!
I had a urine post about 30 yards away, the pack [Please excuse my language... I'm an idiot] all over the urine, but the thawing and freezing of the snow just made the snow covering my trap solid, so the trap didn't set off. I reset the urine post and pulled the trap on the kill.
In this pic I used the Daileys No. 2 lure and the pack came by, but once again the thawing and freezing of the snow due to the spring conditions just froze the snow solid, I reset the trap and Im leaving this set for another week. Grrr
The pack came by my bait pile set and just walked all over this trap, darn the spring conditions! The story of my season. Its pretty exciting though when the animals do come around your sets, weather they go off or not, I know we're setting them right. I left this set out for another week. I ran out of paper towel, so I found some moss to fill in the voids in the trap, you want to keep the moss away from the hinges and jaws as a pull out is very likely, I just sprinkle snow over the trap to conceal it. Another set up I like to use.
