A good time to dig yote trap beds not worth keeping the cages baited with the numbers the way they are now. I need to get set up before the weather turns back to cold next week!

I finish mine and send to auction. I got a few more today, including this really light flanked sow. The pix doesn't really do the coloring justice. I don't think she'll go 3x but I'll probably send anyway and see if I get a Sel*, 1-2 color for a grade.

Question. Do you have to Finnish the pelt as in tan it or is salting and drying on a wire frame or board enough?

You may think before you act. The question is did you listen to your own council?

This one is for Law Dog. Of course, its my typical 3 pound pepe instead of his jumbos. Me thinks alternative marketing for this one instead of going to auction. P..S Did I ever mention that my wife really loathes skunks...

A couple of pixs from my short line today.

First coon in a cubbie box. This thing was sort of a beach ball, 25 lbs on the scale. Taken with an old Duke 160 that I was gifted a number of years ago (thanks again Amak!), They still do the job.

Another pepe for Law Dog in the same location as the first. Maybe a litter mate. These smaller skunks get taken by 160s in the middle so tend to spray. Big ones usually get nailed across the shoulders and mostly not spray. This 160 is a Bridger, stouter springs than those old Dukes, in my opinon.

Anyone overrun with badgers this season I have never seen so many holes as I have this year, I run a 40 mile loop that has holes about in every quarter they seem to be everywhere. Guessing the result of staying in the holes for the later part of the season and the catch being way down last year in my area.

I sold some fur this weekend and made room in the freezer!
Groenewold Fur & Wool was at Dakotaline Snares this previous Sunday in Lennox, SD.
Averaged $6.00 a coon. (had a few at $15, quite a few at $10 a few at $5 a few at $3 and a couple small ones at $1.) But averaged out to be $6.00/coon. Coyote(s) only had one, but got $35 for him. $1.00/rat.
All of my coons were skinned, NOT put up. The Coyote was in carcass, and the rats were in carcass.
He will be back December 9th from 1-3. Are any of you from this area of SD and planning on selling that day? If I know there is a need, I will gladly come in and open up shop during those times.

GFW will be stopping at Dakotaline on the following dates:
SUNDAYS, Dec 9, Jan 6 & Feb 17.


Said they will also buy:
Deer Hides and Squirrel tails

The first dink of the year. I see a kiddie sock puppet in its future. Note to self--don't coup de grace a critter with a backing of blue spruce slab. Pass -through ricochets don't sound sexy!

Buyer offer $8 for that 30 pound coon from last week (Good color) in the carcass went to $4 then to $1, I had 2 early badgers he offered a buck a badger. Heck I can get $15 for the feet and skulls just off of the badgers and one will tan OK so why would I sell 6 coon and 2 badgers for almost the same price? LOL

Today is skinning day it looks like no problem they all pull easy I fired up the dye barrel as long as I will be in the shed most of the day today found a bucket of Mj's that need a dye and wax job and will do cat traps time permitting.

Law Dog- Do you still deal with "old" Pete or do you have another buyer...?

Yep just went to see what Petska was paying for coon I have a lot of sets out so I was going to sell what I could in the round when the buyers came around so I did not spend the time putting them up unless I had to.

Sometimes, a coon won't move my wooden cubbies hardly a bit, sometimes they'll bounce them a ways. This wasn't an overly large coon but he moved my box a good 6 feet from under the tree in the upper left. The box was on a slight incline down to a creek so maybe that helped.

I set this farmstead last Saturday with 3 dps on the various trails between the buildings. 4 coons so far, 3 of decent size, 1 dink. Landowner wants as many of them gone as possible. I will oblige...

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow South Dakota Trapperman brothers & sisters. I am just getting started setting a few traps here in the southern Black Hills. Wife had surgery on Monday so I can't get to far from home just yet. Good luck to all and enjoy your days afield.

What a day started out great and then went down hill fast, had a nice yote snared on the lakebed behind the house good looking yote, only picked up 2 mice at the honey hole. Had a coon pull the door screen off of a cage (not the one's I build) and escaped not sure how a coon that strong could fit through a hole so small but he left some hair behind squeezing past the wire.


A couple stops later I see some deer hunters leaving a place I had set for yotes, they said they shot the yote so I asked them nicely to keep their hands off what ain't theirs. I get there the yote it's moved out of the circle and has a rifle hole in it and I don't see the trap so I head back and a second truck is there so I ask where is my trap a, guy said he buried it in the grass. I looked at him and said why? Just a dumb look so from there I was not so nice after cussing them out for a couple minutes I wrote down their plate numbers and told them if I don't find that trap we will be talking again soon. The one guy looked like he wanted to get froggy but decided not to.


The one guy had reset the trap and covered it with grass the yote was rubbed like it was in sunflowers and the one older guy had a Nam Vet plate so I just let it go with the lesson on "if it's not yours don't mess with it." I had a Deputy on the way when I thought the trap was taken but called him off when I found it under the grass.


Near the end of the line I have a sweet Pepe so I just expect to get blasted the way my day was going, I go to pole the guy and he's nuts it grabs the syringe pulling it off of the plunger throwing acetone all over the set, the second time I was a little quicker and got it done no spray. So I set another MJ about 10 feet away and guess who gets bit by that MJ! LOL
