You are getting me fired up. I don't have any leg holds out YET but I put out 40 fresh snares yesterday, and I have an idea how and where I want to use my leg holds. Congrats!

This is wolf #9 in a #9 at an old kill site that has been freshened up from time to time. This trap has been sitting here for a few weeks and was still functional under a soft drift. Wolves hadn't come by this spot for awhile and glad they did before I pulled everything for the year.

Caught by a couple toes, but the 9 was up to the task. Buddy and I miss judged this thing, thinking 80 lber, gained 15 lbs when it went on the scale. Usually it's ground shrinkage, but this one got bigger. Looked small in the trap, but 95 lb male.

Almost looks bluish, what do you guys think? Maybe would have been a true blue in a couple years?

Getting close to wrapping it up for the year. Everything pulled except some wolf gear, might get one more shot before it's over. Would be nice to get to 10 for the year, maybe ol' 3 toes will pay a visit.

Nice work this year Nate. When you get that wolf in the right sun, he'll look like a blue. Send him down to Moyles and when they add that brighter to the tan, wowser. Keep it up and hope to see ya at the Fling in a couple weeks.

I'm thinking guys using footholds do better in low snow years. Thoughts, past years experiences?

Low snow is definitely easier for keeping gear working. You can leave a set for weeks and let it "mature" with no additional disturbance from you. I've spent lots of time digging stuff out and reworking on high snow years. Of course the major drawback is terrible travel conditions, sometimes harder to see new sign, etc. But I would say easier to keep traps working.[Linked Image]
