I trap here is SE Nebr and the last few years dry dirt was hard to come by and trapping in Dec was pretty hard with the rain/snow/freezing cycles we were experiencing... least in my area. But it looks like we may have a dry year to trap. We are due anyway. I have waxed dirt and some waxed sand but today I went and got several tubs of dry dirt along the field edge. Easiest I've ever gotten. It was like scooping sand. Which for our heavy gumbol ground is a bit unusual.

Getting mighty dry here in SE SD as well. Great for land trapping, but really going to put a damper on the Rats.

Looks like thunderstorms and at least an inch next week! You might have spoke a little early! I think it was four seasons ago the ground was so dry it didnít freeze. Nearly down to zero.

Come on Catman, I was raised in SE Nebr. and your winters are more like Northern Missouri than 95% of Nebr. LOL (summers too Yuk ! ! !). Come north of the Platte River to experience the Great Plains winters. Oh and go buy a bale of Canadian Sphagnum Peat Moss to compliment your soils for bedding. Its on sale at the various Walmarts and will serve your needs........... Good luck down there........ the mike
