Nice catches. What are badgers like to catch, they look like they would be hard to hold.

All that I havegot were on 18 in birkshires. They dig and dig circles around the stake, but by the time they get to where the stake would pull out, they are too tired to pull it. Normally by then they just sleep in the hole. They are a pain to fix the digging after you catch one. Had one dig a mound about 3 feet tall about 4 feet wide. Got a purdy red today, only my second ever. My first had mange.

They can also pull all the dirt to the center and dig outwards so they avoid digging the stake. I have had a few do that

I would imagine that it would be a pain to remake those sets. I've never caught anything with mange. I've only ever seen one red around with it and that was a long time ago.

I haven't caught anything with mange either but found a dead red with it this summer in the woods. Had rabies wipe out a lot of coon two years ago. I have to travel on the 4-wheeler (No truck yet) two miles to get to where I can catch stuff.

We are probably just under 50-50 for mangy yotes. Last year was horrible. It was over 50 then. Mange is a bad bad disease...

Yea I am glad we don't have it here. One of the benefits of trapping right there though, gets rid of some those sick critters.

Well I had a bobcat set out with a StealthCam game camera with infrared vision monitoring the set. Well I checked the set today. No catch, not even a track on the dirt pattern but I got this picture:

I guess a bobcat was more interested in my game camera than in the set! Grrrr!

Hello,
I caught this small female bobcat at a cubby set using a bobcat carcass for bait. The trap was a Victor #3 coilspring.

Well, I caught a mange coyote yesterday with a Duke #3 cs with laminated jaws at a charred stump set using MarkJune's "Canine Candy", Dobbin's "K9-03", + coyote scat with Mike Wotjach's "Coyote Gland Lure."

Nice cat want to be. I haven't had any out lately because I've been so busy,but I got a handful set out today and I am going to put some more out tomorrow. Trapre, are you seeing any sign in the snow there? I would probably pull and relocate. The next week or so will be good because it is supposed to stay cold, in fact this is probably the best time of year to catch target critters here. Try breaking out some loud lure and set some more/different locations if you're able. State college gets most of the same weather we do, so you should be in good shape that way.

Went for a walk tracking two reds that ran 10 feet from my trap. All I saw this morning was about 3 different fox tracks and deer. I have been waiting for this snow for a LONG time! We got about an inch and a half the other night.

Set some cables and leg holds today. I took a peak at this set that connected on a coyote earlier this year and I had pulled. He would have been done for lol.
