Water levels are manipulated to much for there to be numbers like in the past. Iíd say harvesting 500-1000 on entire property would be a great year. I donít see it getting any better in the future. Like the seasons Iím switching gears towards predators and catching a few rats for fun.
Spending more time with my kids deer hunting and taking a few new folks out trapping and introducing them to the sport. Always a fun adventure!!

Most often the bed is so full the catches overflow into passenger side. Can't emphasize enough how much I love the $8/pr Quickfist for attaching poles, axes, drowning rods, etc.

Dang it man you cost me $30 for 4 sets of them quickfist. Got 2 pair that are 1-2.5 inches and a pair that holds 2-9 inches. I think they will be pretty handy on the line this fall.

I use a Polaris ranger but have a aluminium rack that fits in the front receiver. All the bloody dirty catch goes in it and keeps my equipment clean in the back.

I used conduit hangars to fasten em where I wanted on cage tubes and glued a piece of ratchet strap on the inside to protect the finish. I tried the rubber lined hangars from Grainger but didnt like the shearing force the welded nut on those had. Enjoy! Handy little buggars.

I have a 1979 Toyota Straight axle first year 4x4 in USA.
Not much bigger then a side by side, but locked up will go about anywhere.

I sure would like to upgrade to a side by though.. little narrower for those tighter spots. They are handy though. Father in law has one on the Cattle Farm.

I built a rack for the back of mine last year. {Gonna seal all the edges with caulk so blood doesn't drip down. Gonna paint it as well so it'll last longer.} Catch pole, axe, stake puller, etc goes on top up front. Catch goes toward the back. All my other goodies go in the bed to help keep it dry as possible. Plenty of room to pull stuff out the sides or back. When season is over just pull the dowels up out of the standard holes and your good to go.

I built a box to fit in mine. The front row (next to the cab) will hold four 5-gallon buckets - usually peat moss, drags, etc. It has an elevated shelf and has storage under it for extra tools, winch, etc.

The middle is narrow and usually has stakes, drags, chains, dirt hole drill, big hammer, etc.

The back (next to the tailgate) will hold four 5-gallon buckets (set bucket, lure/bait bucket, peat, etc.)

Once traps are set I'm usually down to just a few buckets with some straw in the other holes for non bloody critters like cats and fox.

Mine is a crew cab so on set day I have two kitchen trash cans in the back floor board with traps. A tub goes in the back seat for extra items on set day but has straw in it on check days for the bloody critters.

The picture above was on trap pulling day so there were no buckets.

Dr. Fur, it's a must have after you use it a bit.

Plus you can adjust it to keep stuff tight in the back or let it all the way out on a good day on the line where you need more room = flexibility

If you want to use the good tires, take it from the guys in south Texas and use what we use...
Essex Kevlar
$600 - $800 per set but I wouldn't leave the house without them.

Iíve got the tire thing figured out already. Kawasaki mule makes a ďaĒ arm kit that lifts machine and you can put on a 15Ē truck tire. Friend of mine has done this and it works great.

I'd think theyd have a winch on the front of them.
Then I'd mount vice grips to the front bumper somehow.
Then I'd have a pulley rigged on my cable.
Then... you could pull up to whatever, hook your pulley to it, and have a horizontal skinner with the critter latched in the vice grips.

Andy, you're an animal! I run 8 plys with the slime as well, I just can't remember the name brand. Only issue I ever had was a cedar stob, got lucky it was in the offseason and able to be patched. Locust don't stand a chance vs the 8 ply slimed tires I run smile

Cactus is my main reason for slime. One time I bent a rim and seen the slime running down my side wall. I took out my hammer and beat the rim back into place and when the slime quit oozing out I knew I had it fixed. Kept me from walking a long ways out of the mountains.

My honda bike runs low pressure tires(2.5 lb).I have run on a flat a few times to get out of the bush.Once your rolling the tire comes back up from centrifugal force.

Gradually getting my ride better equipped to do the job. Added a front rack for mainly critters and a side rack with removable yokes to haul 10' drowning rods. The mounts for the yokes are bolted on and do not extend beyond the body work. The only thing welded is the front rack supports on each end of the bumper bar. The rack is held in place with D pins and can be removed without tools.




Still need to add some brackets for misc stuff like a catch pole and tater rake and a gun holder of some kind but I am making progress. Sure going to have a lot more room that the 4 wheeler.
