Yes they are the only thing that I can drive through my rocky ground. lol Every other style I tried either bent or I had a heck of a time driving them in. I never had any trouble with the duckbills breaking, but you have to clean the dirt out of them before you put your driver in. If you don't sometimes acts like a wedge and splits them. Only ever had that happen like once though.

Nothing much happening around here. Couple coon since my last post on here. Caught our first female on Saturday. Out of 15 coon this year only one of them has been a female! Strange?! \

Friend of ours picked up a roadkill mink. I land trap only so that was a new experience! Do they usually stink like cat urine? Whew was that nasty! I'd druther skin a coon!

They stink a little but not that bad. You might have nicked a gland when you were skinning, or when it got hit, it could have released musk.

Well this one was awful! He was flat as a pancake but his hide was fine. I was just curious if they had a smell since I don't have any experience with skinning water critters.

Things have been slow here. Every once in a while Iíll pick up a couple coons or rats, but nothing other than that. The ground isnít frozen so a coyote line is impossible to set out. Beaver season starts in four days so it wonít be long until I post some pics lol.

Beaver season and cable season come in on the 26th here. I will probably wait to set for beavers, I am still playing around with fisher and cat sets. Looking at getting out a coyote line today too.

Author, if you are having rats set off your coils, you need to up your pan tension a little. It will also help on your toe catches.

I was finally able to catch some bobcats last week. Caught a big tom Bobcat at a Dirt Hole Set using TDHP's Predator Bait. He weighed about 30#. Caught a female at the same set 2 days later but she was only about 20# - 25#.
