Good luck if you are going out and setting some traps today. I know it is way too early but might set some just to scratch the itch.

Good luck - always more enjoyable for the kids when the temps are above freezing.
Stay safe

Went from powder dry to way wet here.. Can't even get excited about setting traps. I did clean,, pressure wash some coyote traps the other day I'm going to boil and dye one day this week. Plan to head out first part of November unless we're up to our butts in snow??
Hard to get motivated this year, but I always scratch the itch a little it seems...

I retired in August, always thought I would be running long lines when I was able to spend the time to do it in daylight. Instead I put some traps on craigslist yesterday, I have plenty for what I plan to do.

Took my boy and his buddy out today set six dps and two weasel boxes. Raining now so we will see but they both want a skin for the wall and I just got my background check done for becoming a trappers ed instructor. I help with the first class on the 28th and it would be nice to have a few animals for the students to skin.





My boy is in the orange hat and his friend is in the hoodie. His buddy's little brother is going to check with us tomorrow it will be his first time out.
The boys have been trapping three years and were showing me different tracks and identifiying them as well.

My kids are older now and have lost interest. Not as much fun for me anymore now.

Iíll get after some coons mid to late November. Gonna save the rats for a January thaw or later in February.

Love the pictures Trap Setter. The season opener is a great time to get the young trappers out and even some of the old folks who used to trap when they were young. They enjoy it more when the weather is nice.

I got in 13 sets today, planned on putting in Yote/fox sets all day. Got a call to track a deer and with all the rain coming in tonight, I loaded up the Hound and went and recovered a hunters first deer with the bow..

I did some handi work for my daughter. Trimmed out some new doors and laid a new kitchen floor.
New kitchen cabins are the next project. Then she wants a new barn wood wall Installed. But first I have to tear the boards off the barn. lOL

Looks like with all this rain I'll have to wait till things dry out a bit before I start running my coyote line.
I'm going to pre stake the marsh on Monday or Tuesday.
