My son is busy researching new gear this morning. I have eight sets going so far and have caught five fox so far. Missed a couple easy shots at lynx too. Like so close Ray Charles could've hit them. Looking forward to another good season and hoping everyone enjoys the journal this year...

More to come...

One things for sure Ryan, he looks like one happy little fella who can be a hand full. I agree it looks like he is telling you which gun he wants. I also am looking forward to your journal.

Foxes are piling up again. Picked up one lynx in a fox set and to secure some quality bait I set a couple beaver traps.

My kids watching me skin my first under ice beaver last night. I usually try to shoot some before freeze up but I didn't get the chance this fall. I'll be running the beaver traps until I get enough bait then it's long line time which I can't wait for. My trap order is on it's way too. Mostly Martin and wolf gear and little stuff like aluminum tacks and some bulk havalon blades. Stay safe and good luck on the line.

Long fur is looking good saskamusher. It's really improved noticeably this past week. First cold spell hit last night so the fox should be looking great before long. A question for you beaver guys, do conibear traps always leave a visible mark on the beaver hides? Almost looks freeze dried where the trap struck. Just heading out to tend the town traps, hoping for the best!

Congrats on the fox! That is a pretty silver! As for the mark, was it fully submerged? I've had critters with that mark when it is really cold and they are exposed.

It's fairly common to get a conibear mark, seems to be more prevalent with magnum traps IMHO.

Not sure about that but I was able to geturdone!! And threw in a little adjustment to the fox as well.
Cool to see all three color phases there. Is that common? Almost like Kodiak.

hope it stays cold for u ryan and fur gets heavy . as others said the big magnum traps leave a mark it seams to squeeze all blood and fluids out of the spot where trap hit leaveing just white leather and see as the heart is no longer pumping it isn't replaced when trap is taken off so it stays white . I never heard of it being a down grade unless buyers are looking for excuse to down grade ur fur to buy it cheep .

Nope. Missing a Samson fox. smile

The first fox I ever caught was a Samson. I've not caught one since, and it's been 35+ years.

I've caught Samson fox before. Are they worth anything? Muskrat- I caught it in a 330 about 2-3 feet from the lodge entrance with sticks placed to funnel him into the trap. The silver and the red in the picture were a double. The cross was first to be picked up that night.
