Just don't get this post taken down for childish reasoning. When you post things on the internet you have to realize there are always going to be people that will not believe you, people who will be envious, people will try and do their level best to critic, some will down right lie about you. Others have motives to help or protect you from those who would take advantage of you as well. I believe that is where this is. I have had so many say they were going to come here and trap and take all my fur away and some are very good trappers. This was when you could make money doing it. They never came and if they had it would not have mattered to me. We have ROW and it belongs to anyone who has a permit. Let haters hate. I have no desire to fight over fur. I have no time for it. I have too much fur work to do. Besides being on this site as long as I have and hearing it all has gave me a pretty thick hide. LOL, LLL

Larry speaks the truth on this. My best friend who happens to be a deputy in Larry and I's county loves trapping coon. I'm not much into it in the current market but he's got a big block of time off, and thinks together we can knock down 2000 in a month....Hes been getting permission from one end of the county to the other. I think a few days would be exciting, but I don't know about a whole month. I'm a coyote trapper, not a coon guy. It takes a ton of time, effort, and dedication to put up numbers like that. We'll see what happens

Very few people around can get that much trapping but are a very few that do, must be better trapping in that area of state, I can't imagine anyone around here catching even close to that in row, although this part of state is better than some areas to west, there must be more streams an field tiles an water down that way, there are more coon an mink around than lot people think I believe, especially coon

Are those drying shelves or storing shelves? Figured in that climate they would be frozen waiting to be thawed.

If they are for drying do you drill holes in the shelves for air flow? I'd think expanded metal to be better?

Very impressive, good job. Anyone who puts up that kind of numbers, of any critter is a hard worker and a good trapper.

No money in long lining coyotes around here. To many factors such as mange, having to line up private land, cannot roll the numbers needed to make it work, quality of yotes here. Besides I hate skinning coyotes and people cannot leave a coyote alone if they see it in your trap. I do trap a few in early January when the first really nasty weather moves in and the coon lay up for a bit before the rut. LLL

For me the math is not there. if I went and trapped 100 coyotes at a 25.00 average and take out the beat up, mange ones it would be a 20.00 average. I can catch that much coon and mink at a ten dollar average in four days. I live in coon country. It is the bread and butter here and mink and rats are the gravy. LLL
