For the kids forum members, post what you catch!!! See how you're faring compared to other young trappers. Obviously no
non-target animals.

So far I got two Possums in the 5 days I've had set traps in the ground. One was the size of my fist so we let him go. The other one we kept so that he wouldn't bother us again. We also caught a groundhog (I still have no idea where his den was!).

I'd like to say I trapped these but I helped a dairy farmer remove these guys from a manure pit. We rigged my snare pole up to a long wooden shaft and cranked them out. I can tell you after fishing for them for 3 hours my arms were Jello last night and are stiff and sore today! There were 8 coon, 4 possum, and 5 cats(which they were going to remove with a leaning board so we didn't hurt them trying to pull them up with the snare pole. The farmer used to trap when he was a kid so we let two coon in to call in other coons.


Does it work that way? Will the still trapped coons call in other coons?

Our season opened on the 25th, I am dyeing traps today. I can't wait to set some but I normally wait until some time around Dec 15th.

I wish we had some greys around here! Looks like your making some great catches guys. Iíve still got a week of waiting! Zach, Do you prefer the pipe dream set with only grass, or dirt and grass to cover the trap? Iíve seen guys do it both ways. Thanks

Hey looks like your doing good this season! Thanks for the pictures! Itís a coyote/fox set that involves a piece of plastic/electrical pipe around 10 inches long. The pipe is pounded into the ground, usually in front of your backing. The pipe should have a hole drilled into it, so it doesnít fill with rain. Bait and lure goes in the pipe, and the trap is bedded in front of it. Usually, grass clippings are put over the trap. Itís supposed to be rain and snow proof. Mark Zagger is the inventor , and thereís a really long thread on the strictly trapping forum if you want to look into it further.

I prefer just grass, my dad likes both peat and grass. As far as being the most weather proof grass is probably best.(That's how Zagger does it) Both of us dig a deep bed, line the bottom with peat, then wedge the trap in. I really like this set for being rain resistant, I have yet to find out to first hand how freeze proof it is.(Should be good) I just set up a new farm with all pipe sets tonight, tomorrow's check should be good.

I had a huge boar coon this morning 20+ pounds. I had trouble weighing him on a bathroom scale, but I had try to weighgh him he was so big. Other than that nothing much here. I'm going to throw a few more foot holds out tomorrow if it isn't raining.

Thanks, I would definitely try it. The terrible weather is why I started putting in more pipe sets. I was planning on trying it this year, but the rain didn't slow down and all of my dirt holes kept filling up with water. Although the dirt holes still produced, the pipe sets are out producing them so far.
