Nice one Jeff!

We just got good news that the FBI arrested a suspect for the double homicide at the CG COMSTA that occurred last year. The guy worked in the same shop as the victims.

Jeff, had a cat last week that came to a yj set, stopped 4" short of the trap. It was elevated just slightly, he just didn't step up there. I rearranged a bit, hopefully he comes back.

ST you said it stopped 4" from the trap, did you only make a trail up to your trap? If you did its not a YJ set. Look at Jeff's pic again. You can see his trail goes atleast 10 feet past the trap from the angle it don't look far but it is. When the cat makes it there and isn't interested, gonna keep going down the nice packed trail, usually doesn't make it, snap right on top of the mound. I use to make the same mistake cost me a few, not anymore. Can't be lazy to go the extra 10-15 feet past the trap.

My set was pretty open, he told me not to fence it too much. The wing was hanging with a trap underneath on a small mound, only subtle guiding. I see the walk through style, I will adjust next time out there. I like trying new things. That set looks good, yj! I see your catch pole in operation there too.

I love the efficiency of snares on lynx, not much disturbance here, just a few sticks out of place.

akas,I like the Bridger 3's for cats too, I've got a bunch of them. Here's one in a rebuilt #3. Keep hanging out with yj, you might be able to teach him a thing or two.

Oh no I have nothing to teach Jeff, all I do when I trap is what he taught me. 100% of my lynx knowledge for foot traps I got from him. I'm but a simple student that listened carefully, most of the time, trapping my self was one part I didn't hear, but pain will make you remember it all. Lol.

You know I was wondering what is to close for each others lines? Reason I ask I got a guy who knows I got a few lynx, and by mistake he came across my sets and just my luck there was a lynx in it. Now for that sight he saw he has sets above and below me 3-4 miles in both ways of the tree line. What would you guys do? It's been pretty productive for him the last few days, but not for me. In a way by fishing standards he "corked me".
This is the cat he saw wish he didn't.

Mine, he was coming from the village down river trying to find a smooth trail home and saw a trail goin up the bank, stopped and walked up, there she was. After that he made many sets around me.

You could try and talk to him, but that might not make a difference. One thing you could do is just be smarter than him and catch the cats before they get to his sets.....

Best bet is talk to him and let him know your workin the area. By the looks of him so far he's not so reasonable. Good luck with straighting it out.

Had an awesome trip home today from Sand Point. Barely made it out due to weather.
Had to land in King Salmon on the way home to get fuel.
Thought I would show you that neck of the woods from 10-15,000 feet.
Here is a number of photos in a story form. Not too thrilled about how it came out.

Coming into Bristol Bay.



Photo was take some where above where UgashikBob lives.
Braided river outside King Salmon

Exit of Lake Iliamna


Thought this photo was cool. Looks like a fish on this lake.



Upper end of Iliamna Lake
Looking towards Nehalen. Where trees come down to the lake.



Okay. Otterman what is this. Upper end of the lake. The next few photos show something I can't explain.



Looks like Mars. Frost heaving of some kind?






This looks to be in front of Pedro Bay on the upper end of the lake







Looking towards Port Alsworth.



Some rough country


Ronaround!!!
I found you your own little slice of heaven. Might even have some hot springs as the river was open.



West side of cook inlet



Cook inlet. If you look close you will see oil platforms out there in the ocean.



Almost to Anchorage.
Mt McKindly in the background.

Nice Len ! I really like those odd shapes in those specific pix. Nature rarely does things in lines that are that straight. Fault lines immediately come to mind.
