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

Was a great night. Hiked up to a set to find a cat and little did i know it was my best cat yet. Nice big tom with good spots. Cat #4 for the year and i have now broke my records


And the set... a walkthrough where i followed his tracks. I made a rub set with andys lure and my friends caster lure.
