This is the best time for the boys to learn how to skin and flesh: early, low value coon and a lot of them. Great to see!

I decided to put out a trap yesterday on my land in a coon trail, what I get will feed the eagles or buzzards, it is not coming home with me. I took another red squirrel down for a swimming lesson, and took a 160 conibear with me, 5th red squirrel under the bird feeder, never had them around here growing up.

Had a 3 dog day yesterday with one cat one grinner and 2 coon. Didn't have my catch pole with me so I couldn't release the coon.
The coon were poorly furred but I'll have to skin them. Ill try and get some pics.

I had 4 coyotes the first day, 2 yesterday with 4 coon, 1 skunk and today only 1 coyote and 1 coon. All the coon are in coyote traps. I didn't put any sets out today because I want to see how much snow/rain we get. A lot of the ground I trap is clay so it's gets pretty slippery when wet and I don't want to tear up the fields.


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

I took 2 coons last night down back. I'm going to skin them just to check the leather. 1 is way too small to be marketable the other is a maybe but more than likely I'll tan for crafts.

No steel in as of yet and the 10 day weather forecast is causing some line management changes. Waded a few miles of river yesterday and sign is about normal so the flood impacts are lessening. Could be a lot of the rats are coming from the sloughs and ditches that are drying up.

6" of snow here in the Eau Claire area. That sucks when you have coyote sets out in the clay. LOL. Will make a pretty catch picture if they moved last night.

It's been as dry as a pop corn fart here for weeks. But as soon as you get traps In the ground It starts to rain or snow.

You're right Beav, traps in the ground guarantees rain or snow. HA. I stand corrected from my earlier post, we had 7.9" of snow in Eau Claire.

With very early corn harvest and snow and cold a lot of the YOY coons won't get the protein and calories they need to grow and fur out very well. Probably will be a good year to be trapping the barns later in December.

Got a decent coyote today.
I dragged a straw bale out In a harvested bean field figuring 100 yards out from the edge would cut down on junk catches. I had 2 sets with In 8 feet or so from the bale. Guess what I had 2 grinners in those 2 sets today.So much for that Idea.

One to Two inches of rain expected today with 20 mph winds. This should be fun.

Had 4 grinners today. Snapped off a lot of sets due to the bad conditions. Will have to remake once things dry out.

Picked up some coons on drowning sets. Probably could set a drowning set on dry land today and get them in the puddles!

Good times.

Wades some rivers Tuesday and Wednesday and earlier today. Things looked pretty normal for water level and sign after two years of frequent spring, summer and fall flooding. Rivers are on their way up again. We have had about 1 inch the last couple days and they say quite a bit more to come. Will need to canoe the sloughs as they will be too high to wade and the rivers will take a while. Was tempted to set 4 hot coon trails, but sure glad I did not. Now the corn will stand another week or so and the coons can fur up a bit more.
