How much snow is too much snow for you to keep trapping

When my quad won't go, I don't have a sled.

As long as I can bust the drifts I'm good to go, I can always move into the deep draws where the snow is more manageable if needed or set out big baits to limit my travel but still run a good amount of snares.

Couple yrs back I was trapping near waist deep with no snow shoes. Half would melt then another dumping. It wasn't bad after awhile as my trail (game trail) was packed.
The other part of my line was bad with snow as it's full of granite and crushed granite. Snow +crushed granite + cacti + steep incline = sketchy situations. That's when I wished we didn't have daily checks

No amount of snow stops me.Actually wait for snow to be able to get into some good fur pockets.
Snow allows you to drive right up to the beaver.No carrying of heavy animals.

The snow doesn't bother us much (the little that we get). It's the freezing rain that ices up the roads and even locks up the snares that stops me.

Same here... Last night started with freezing rain, changed to sleet, changed to snow...
We got 6 inches of snow which is not that much, but the darned ice underneath it is tough. The gravel roads are an ice rink even with a 4 wheel drive.

I'm getting too old to be digging sleds out but three feet of snow hasn't stopped me yet.
