Not good, not good. I'll be interested to hear the prognosis next year.

do any of you guys use baited 160 size traps with the hagz clips on glass poles? if so, do you have many problems with snapped traps? just curious. thanks.

When I use the baited 160 I use it on a lath stake so I cant say about how the hagz bracket would affect the deal I have some snapped but usually not many

Took advantage of nice weather on Saturday to get some steel out and picked up these three today: 2 targeted and 1 incidental in a yote set. That is a 20” setter for reference.

When does our coon rut start in central WI?


50 years trapping and hopefully another 50 still to come. OK, let's hope for 15 more.

Well this won't be special for many but I set 3 CR's for the first time on Sat 1/4/20 and caught my first coyote this morning!

The location before hanging and after picture:

How it looked this morning!

Forecast is for 13" of snow here in Manitowoc County so will be hanging more CR's in the future!

Good catch Alex. A land owner called and has an otter issue. I was going to prospect Thursday but with the forecast as it is I will wait. It may be better also with snow the fresh sign will be helpful. Some sizable toilets so they are cycling through, now one has to find the best method(s) to catch one.

Finally got around to a little beaver trapping this week. It was a nice close pond so my 6 month old trapping partner was able to join me. I let him pick out the sets from the comfort of his seat but i had to make the sets. We set on Sunday and checked last night after work.
