Try a sheet of cardboard on floor to catch the drips

The only thing that bothers me in those photos is somebody opened the bag of OL' Roy dog food from the bottom. Why would somebody do that? We are trying to keep things in order here....

Your garage looked fine until I saw the two possums and thought now that just looks trashy.

Maybe Jurassic Park was having an upside down day when he opened the bag.

Way to go Rendezvous the place just looks like you could enjoy doing some trapping chores in there. Those other photos a guy could get hurt moving around in the mess.

I guess everyone on here can see why I start asking you around the first of February if you will have a place big enough cleaned out by the last of March to get my boat in there when your mother and I come down for two weeks crappie fishing.. grin

I'm betting no one sits in that lawn chair without a hazmat suit on. Then again I hear some people get excited wearing those.

The only fur I had put up was rats and beaver, my fur buyer preferred to buy fur green. Getting up in age and limited by health issues, I wanted to take care of a few goals on my "Bucket List". I finally put up Raccoon, possum, fox and mink. I also caught and put up coyote, ermine and fisher that were on that "Bucket list". This season my truck wasn't able to pass inspection and not considered road worthy. I wound up waiting over a month for a cap for the new truck. I didn't trap this year due to lack of truck and then cap, I am not comfortable leaving some gear in the truck while making sets, I have been ripped off before. I did managed to catch a skunk in the yard, on purpose. I did the whole process; defunking, skinning, fleshing, boarding and removing the essence. That was way up on the "Bucket List"! If God willing and able, I will might try for Marten, Bobcat and Otter this upcoming season.
The boards are still pretty clean, due to... I don't set many traps due to health reasons, I also wash most of my fur before fleshing. The PVC fleshing beams might help also, I wipe them down regularly with clorox wipes and degrease as needed.


The Beaver Table skinning top is all seal and gets wiped down regularly also.

Swa dust/shavings and cardboard helps keep thing clean, that and my OCD too.

I have been avoiding coon, work and little value, concentrated on other goals.




In short do I trap? Yes, but for enjoyment! wink
