This is the set of pictures I took while making my set today. Starting from the natural ground cover. I have to lose a second time to get rest in.


Wish I had more time to trap....

And that is it. I shot video of making a few sets and have trail camera on one I feel has most potential. Hoping to put together a cool video with cat he at sets made on camera and hopefully footage of my coyote getting pinched.

That's how my sets usually look the next day too! Don't matter how hard I squint, I can't turn a possum into a fox.


Right now Im having amnesia and dj vu at the same time. I think Ive forgotten this before.

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

How does this set work in sand? I've been thinking about running a few, will the trap pack in tightly in sand?

Tried a couple years ago in sand but never felt like the trap was tight enough...

Maybe some members here might have a solution...


Thought I was a good trapper until I started trapping coyotes......
Thought I was a good bowhunter until I targeted mature bucks....

I have mostly sand here and with it wet like now it tightens right up but when dry it doesn't matter what bedding method you use the trap has to be deep to be solid.


Wish I had more time to trap....

The real test will be when ground is frozen rock sold down several inches and it is zero to sub zero temps.
Then some freeze-thaw action for a few days with sun warming it up to just above freeze during day then dropping to well below freezing at night. Those are the tough conditions here where the minimal trap covering with dry material and not much of trap touching the bed area below will be tested. Whether the trap will remain stable, not be frozen down to the soil like a rock, and still fire appropriately by the set target. The pipe is just a place to put bait or lure instead of trying to hammer drill a dirthole in rock solid frozen ground.

Keep it going bud!


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

Nice one pcr2. I had another victim today. Have some cool video that I have to have my daughter edit so I can post too. I have to say that my normal catch wasn't until day 3 on a dirt bed set and I have caught 2 cats and 2 coyote on first night so I am getting more impressed. [Linked Image]

Taking my 10 year old daughter bout today to check pipe dream progress. She is excited to go because we get the truck muddy. I am excited to have her go because she is right there helping and we have a good time. Hopefully will be posting catch pictures with her in them too. (Not her caught) lol. Good luck to all today.
