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.


What the h***...? Just leave your hands off...

Where you on private ground when that happened LawDog? Where I am the land owner would have had some words with hunters and the would most likely had to pay the value of a good coyote for shooting it. All my land owners tell anybody with permission to hunt do not mess with any traps or they will not be allowed there again. That makes my job so much easier here. If it was on public ground all the laws that they broke are spelled out in black and white in the hunters hand book. If they do not read the book they are not that ethical hunters and should not be hunting period.

Yep private ground I would guess they won't be invited back again by the landowner he is a guy I did some control work for last summer when he was losing calves. Can you guess where in SD they were from a hint they had plates that started with a (W). LOL

After trapping out East and the difference the way landowner look out for you here it's amazing, going from a place they would rather lose the farm then let you trap to guys that ask you if your trapping for them every year! LOL

ive had the same experience law dog. i lived out by brookings for 8 years and many of the landowners were very touchy about things. now that im back home again my guys call me and ask when im going to start, if i would like them to move cows to different pastures, etc. the last couple years my grandpa trapped we had a landowner put in four or five cattle guards specifically so grandpa wouldnt have to open gates. up to 8 dogs this week btw. but im finding quite a bit more mange than what id really like.

You are spot on. I would turn down a reasonably priced acreage in Minnehaha County (haha ya right) just to not have to tell people what county i live in. People definitely are quick to judge negatively, and based on what sioux falls is like and a lot of the people who live there, i dont blame them.

That was the word I got last year that mange was more common then East River is now but we had our share in the past seasons, the one they shot yesterday was rubbed on the sides it looked fuzzy/flat a young dog. Landowners here sure are the most obliging I have ever come across in my travels trapping, did have a old boy in IL tell some goose hunters that he "needed the trappers and did not need the hunters!" That always makes me laugh but it made sense.

They just happen to live up to the reputation they have if they did not earn that reputation (some not all) they would not be hiding their county number! LOL At lease I know that the 5 guys and the kid will drive by the next coyote they come across and keep on going at least that was the goal.

No need to camo my license plates because I live and trap in that naughty #1 county. But, I do agree that Soo Foo has changed a lot over time. Its not the town I graduated hs from nearly 40 years ago...

The pepes in the corner box in the one pasture are starting to near Law Dog's average but not quite there yet. This one might actually get skiined out and made into an ebay wall hanger + the 3 cleaned up skulls from the overall stinker crew. Maybe I'll clear out the whole family before I'm done there.

Hello fellow SoDakians! Been a member here for a long time, usually don't post. Nice to see a thread with that pertains to our beautiful state! I started my yote line Nov. 1. Been slow but steady. 2 coons, 2 skunks and 11 dogs so far. Hoping things will get cold and stay cold so I can get my snare line going.


LOVE DA BEAV !

Wow, what are all of your top lots in, if you care to share??

"Disastrous season", is it too wet up there...?

I glad to see more SoDakers (does anyone call themselves that anymore or is that just a figment of my mind?) posting on this thread!! Photos, however you can get them on here, are always cool to see. Tomorrow is another day!

Central Muskrat 135222 $4.60
Western Nor. Coon 135551 $63.00
West. Nor. Cent. Coon 135641 $31.00
Western Beaver 134041 $30.00
Western Beaver XL 134101 $19.50 (Didn't even know this was going to be a Top Lot...This was my first year sending in beavers...I'm not sure why they separate tops lots into sizes when it comes to beaver)

The weather (cold and wet) has hit us pretty hard...We just crossed coon #200 (which is low) today and in a typical year we probably would stop trapping by the opener of deer. We are also significantly down on coyotes, beaver, skunks and have caught 0 muskrats. The only thing we are up on is possum.

Actually that is not true. We have our 200th coon to put up but I think were still short like 4 coons until we catch our 200th.
