When the ranchers contract you to come and get the coyotes and bobcats that are predators of their animals, the first thing you do in south Texas is look at the temps. The second thing you do is grab plenty of H2O! It was almost 100 today and tomorrow it'll be 104 degrees, but the first full check of the line was productive. This is not fur trapping. This is sniper fire. Find the sign. Set it. Get 'em.

Hunter Stinger, a past attendee from our Trapping Academy has joined me. He started day one check with a nice female coyote!

I bet you hate to take a nice cat like that this time of the year.


I want to grow my own food but I can't find bacon seeds.

I hear ya, I try to start early running everything. Stay hydrated, and not just water. You need the electrolytes also. Take care.

Adam,

Yessir. This 104 on the radar for tomorrow is rugged, rugged. I have a ranch slotted in this same area from June 20th for two weeks.
I may be getting too soft for all this.
Might take up checkers.

Not too sure about the famous TV preacher avenue, but the stories are real life drama. "These are the days of our trapping lives." smile cool

You must have to check your traps quite often under those conditions?That heat must be hard on animals out in the open like that for any length of time.
I know beaver held alive in summer heat will expire in just a couple hours from hyperthermia if they cant get to water..

I would bet that Mark runs & resets in the mornings. Even with high temps during the day the animals (shade up) just like we do. Being he's trapping nocturnal predators
that hunt in the cool hours of the night; they probably aren't in the traps long before he's back.

If a guy was to
Look at his trap much after about 11:00 you wouldn't need a fancy death ray, just a scoop shovel and a trashbag, if you wanted to clean up the mess.

Mark & Donna. HEB has some knock off Gatorades called Power Ade. I drink a lot of water but getting around in the heat takes a lot of the salts out of you and replacing them quickly works good for me.


Well (This word is unacceptable on Trapperman) yes I can ride, I was riding when I fell off grin
