Got to the camp a couple hours ago..about 6:00 pm....4 hour drive from home. Unloaded 1.5 weeks worth of food and clothes. Mapping my line now, then a hot shower and bedtime.

Same pay job properties as last few years. Start tommorrow setting mostly for coyotes and cats. Will set a few Z-traps for coon at deer feeders and a few Belisles for otter and beaver at the easy to get to spots. Will post a few pics daily over next 12 days.

Stay tuned and enjoy the ride!!!!

That is some sure fire fart food there. Guess it's best you are working alone. Had partner years back in doing some big beaver control jobs that had a ventilation problem due to his boots.

He was eating too much deer jerky and Vienna sausage daily. Being he was wearing chest waders most of the time he had a chimney draft effect when he passed gas.

He was forbidden to ride in the drivers seat of our ATV and have me catch the back draft all day riding on the back. sick

Will find out how prescribed fire affect predator movement. Landowner lit about 100 acres today...only one trap so far ran over with atv..about an hour after I set it.

Good sized bcat track....

Got about 50 set today. All dirt sets except 4 DPs.

First check tomorrow...then setting more properties. Was frosty this morning. Temps are forecast to warm up..lows in 50s...and good rain chance for several days.


Thank God For Your Blessings!

No rocks, I wouldn't know how to act. to get 50 land sets in here you would need and excavator to move the rocks. Waiting for the next posting........jk

Bad juju there. Bad Medicine. Deal breaker for me. I would have gone home for the day until I found the antidote.
I did have a can one time which all of them had helmet heads. I don't know what that indicates, but it sure was weird.
Then just today, I pulled out the 6 pack of Vienna sausages, that's right six cans, only to find out that they were barbecue flavor! More like dirty ashtray flavor. I am going to use them around the foundation of the house to run off all forms of life, probably kill the azalea bushes too. Nasty!

The highlight of the first check. Very slow movement last night. Low temp jumped from 28 yesterday to 48 this morning. Also had 16 college students helping landowner burn and they were riding ATVs all over the property last night until midnight watching the fire lines. Glad I'm being paid to trap,or this would be aggravating, but the burn crew is leaving tommorrow and all should quieten down. Predators should explore the burns...

Set most of another property today about 10 miles away. No human activity there...except me.

Looks like a lotta rain is on the way... just great...!!!


Thank God For Your Blessings!
