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.

I'd be willing to trade some of that rock hard frozen ground that stays that way all season for some that is rock hard for a week and then standing water and 8" of thawed mud for next week !!!

Try my hand at trapping some canines hoping for my first fox and coyote. A cat would be a bonus.

As long as one of the records was not on how much money you lost in a single trapping season....

Getting someone new into trapping should be a goal for each of us every year. My newbie this year will be one of my granddaughters.

My first goal is to survive Covid 19. I came down with it on Sept. 13th and it hasn't been much fun. I had a fever 24 hours a day for the first 13 days and finally went fever free yesterday for the first time. Lost 13 pounds and I wasn't big to start. LOL. My energy level is extremely low but that should start to improve.

I hadn't trapped coyote for many years but put out some sets last year and caught 6 in less than a week with less than 20 traps out. My goal this year is to catch 30 and reduce the population in my area if possible. I'm hoping to help out the deer and the red fox. I'll also trap a bunch of coon but don't have any specific goal since most didn't sell last year.


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

After the year I had last year will be a hard task to follow. Goal this is year is 700 Nutria's and 10 Muskrat. Yes Yes Yes I know that is big numbers for people not aware of the situation down here. I'm a small time guy here working 14 days on and 14 days off all year and the weather is a killer. In a weeks time it will go from Fall, Winter, Summer, Winter in a 7 day period. But that being said my biggest goal to beat is 50 rats in a day. Last year I came close with 46 in a 24 hour set.


2019/2020 totals
634 nutria
9 coons
2 muskrat
1 bobcat
1 mink

with nutria what do you typically use them for when you get them / pelts are they worth anything. I know they are a major problem so you would be trapping regardless in order to bring down the population

Its all for the bounty program, I save some meat for the table, some parts for alligator bait and the rest is fertilizer..... No market for the pelts that are worth the trouble.
