Wow nice job on the coyotes possum catcher! How do you trap them in deep snow? Do they shy away from your prints? We’ve got about 5 inches here with more on the way

Most of them were before the snow but we got about 5 in right now too. If my sets were in before the snow i leave them sit for a few days. If nothing hits then i clear the snow infront of it and over the set. Im in the process of adding more sets now and i just clear the snow from where im setting. Sometimes if its going to stay cold i will sift the snow over my trap, but i usually dont

Nice cat, all my sets were frozen. It went from 60 pouring down rain to 9 degrees with 6 inches of snow over night. Pulled all of my sets today.

I was looking over and updating my log, and I'm up to 20 canines. 15 reds, 1 grey, and 4 coyote. Not bad considering before this season I had never caught a coyote or fox. I had an original goal of 25 canines. If Im able to really roll and pick up some more properties I'm gonna shoot for 40. I'm gonna have to spend at least a week or so hammering beaver, and coons will start rutting soon and I'll have a bunch of conibears along river banks to keep working so 40 canines may be a bit over confident. But I definitely won't get there if I don't try.

Awesome on the cats possum, I'm still waiting to have one show up at a set. I started setting traps on a really catty looking property yesterday so hopefully I'll have some soon.

Patience is key on they. They make big loops so it is hit and miss. But i know that as soon as you get your first cat youll want another one. They are the most rewarding to catch

I had a good day considering how few traps I have set. Ended up with a good sized yote, a nice red and a juvenile beaver. At least two more beaver in this colony. Got another beaver colony I need to set up tomorrow, and a dozen clean foot holds to get in the ground. Gotta get a few dozen cleaned up and rewaxed.

Nice. Hopefully will be back trapping here in a few days. Was trying to find a land trapping area, but never found one. Back to the muskrat marshes! Hopefully I can bring my total from 20 to 50, but I will have to see.

Haven't had a line out of darn near a month, got a german shorthaired pointer pup, and I haven't had time to mess around with traps. I would still like to get out some k-9 traps before the end of the season. I am going to set some beaver traps for sure, when we either get safe ice or open water.

Yep he was 37lbs, not huge but I knew these beavers weren't going to be. These were the first beavers to move back into this pond for a while, probably only two in there.
