How about a story to go with the picture...and I want to hear a thousand words worth, lol.
Coyotes have never bothered me. Cats have me being more cautious, they just look at you like they want to rip your throat out.

To catch a badger. I have never set for one but we are allowed 1 per season so figure why not. Will be trapping usual predator line also.


Wish I had more time to trap....

Last year was my first year trapping. I do it exclusively for wildlife management. I set goals as follows:

5 coyotes
30 coons/possums
1 beaver
1 bobcat

I caught:
6 coyotes
38 coons/possums
2 beavers
1 bobcat
2 otters
2 grey fox

This year I would love:
10 coyotes
60 coons/possums
5 beavers
2 bobcats

All animals caught were rewarding, but the coyotes really did it for me. I guess second place would be the beavers. Otters and cat were stumbled onto by mistake.

My goal is to trap every day of season (minus Christmas day). Starting October 15th with yotes and switching over to beaver sometime in November thru March 15. Last season I stopped mix bag trapping. I focus on one critter at a time and stay steady after them. Pretty amazing the numbers you can put up when you focus on one thing

Im retiring today, so the big goal just got accomplished.

75 coyotes
200 coons put up

Enjoy an entire fall trapping with my best friend, and finally get a chance to stop and smell the roses. Cannot wait to get started.


Life is short, tomorrow is promised to none of us. Make the best of every day you have

If I can hook up a red fox, a gray fox and maybe a ringtail cat Iíd be thrilled. There arenít many of them around but weíve seen a den of reds and have trail cam vids of the grays. Every now and then someone will catch a ringtail but I think weíre kind of on the far northern end of their range so they arenít common.

I quess = Going to another state to do another trapping job would be my goal for now. I got to Texas this year to work on 18 day coyote contract. I am HOPING to get to go to New Mexico to trap this year BUT with New Mexico's travel restrictions I am still waiting to see.Also breaking the 400 mark a year on coyotes would be great as well!

200 rats 30 coyotes. I have a market for my rats. I'm going to try and catch a few skunks and put them up. Never did that before. If I could still trap the ROW I'd have 50 skunks In a weeks time. LOL

I don't plan on targeting coon but will skin any ones I do catch.

My goals for the upcoming season:
1) Bobby Ryan will set his own snares and catch his first lynx
2) Morgan Sophia will catch 10 lynx and get comfortable setting 1.5s
3) Charlotte will tag along and not get cold

Not sure of goals for myself yet.
