Forest county trappers day was good. Picked up a couple things I didn't know I needed too .:)


Right now I’m having amnesia and déjà vu at the same time. I think I’ve forgotten this before.

Well that's a motley looking crew. Lol
Wish I could have made it, but there seems to always be something pressing, work or family that has to be done just right now.
I'll start dying traps mid October and wax them after they have hung in the woods for a week or so.
I'm still playing with a different pan cover and learning to bed a #3 dsl quickly.
I'm starting day one on 3 properties for just yotes. Pan tension experiment is still on for this season.
I ran 8pound tension on my traps last season and only caught 2 fox and coon besides the yotes that were all deep catches.
This season I switched to all pit pans and heavy screen pan covers. Without screen I have 5+ pounds of tension, with it 71/2 pounds. It's tough screen.
Good luck to all this season.
And stay safe out there

I might have to fire up the dye pot and wax pot again. I like cool temperatures for that job.


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

Loving this weather. I'm always torn between trapping and bowhunting. I consider that a blessing. Best of luck to everyone this season. Bee Safe...

Her first year archery got the cross bow all dialed in. If she tags one in the am will still hopefully get some scouting in. Will skin and hang it in the walk in for a day then cut it up. Like to get out on the gas well roads and gather up some more fresh scat before it's rained on again. Who would of thought a father and daughter cold have so much fun picking up crap lol.

Starting to run out of things to do to prepare for the season. May just end up stripping some traps down to bare metal let a surface rust form and do some dying and waxing just for old time sakes. Miss the smell of a dye pot over a fire on a nice cool fall day. Going to be a pain getting the fmj and paint off of them but wanted some traps to hang up around the shop walls for decorating. Figured nothing looks better than a old dyed and waxed trap hanging on the walls.

I am presently soaking some traps in a walnut hull bath. I tried this a year or two ago and I liked the results. The reason I am doing it this way is because I am not doing many traps and I didn't feel like dragging the pot, the burner, the hose and all the other stuff to boil traps. We have a huge walnut tree in the lawn and the walnuts need picked up to mow anyhow. I am not in a hurry so I will let them soak for a few days. After they take the dye I will wax them.

My two walnut trees are dropping them like bombs. Learned my lesson on parking the buddy under one really fast 2 days ago. I did a little searching on here and going to try the super clean soak to get the paint off a couple dozen traps I selected to dye and wax for wall hangers.

Get it at Wal-Mart in the automotive section. It's a purple bottle. A gallon is 9$. Also can use purple power much cheaper but works the same from what I have been told. I'll be soaking the traps in it tonight I'll post the results of a over the night soak. The traps I'll be soaking were painted and dipped in full metal jacket twice so i will be impressed if this takes them back to bare metal. It does great on stripping old lathe parts down to bare metal. Caution don't soak aluminum in it! It will pit it really bad found out the hard way working on a old four wheeler head. Was only going to soak it for a hour then got caught up working on something else for got about it till the next day and will say all carbon was gone but head was useless from the pitting it caused.
