Well pretty good run today, The temps have finally dropped were they should be, right around zero and the critters are finally on the move
Started my morning off pulling out of the parking lot headed to my trailhead and someone had smacked a moose. Whoever salvaged it left everything right on the side of the road, I did my civic duty and removed it out of site of the roadway to my bait stations
Picked up this nice otter in a set that I will call the Bronco set from now on
When broncoformuddy ran with me a few weeks ago, as we were checking traps along the creek, I asked him to stay in my track, well........ someone didnt listen and punched through up to his knee
Now I am an opportunist and with a open hole I knew the otters if they passed through they would find it. So I have been keeping it open just waiting and today it paid off
Further down the line there is a trail that come off a ridge line that the critters run from time to time, This little guy ran it
After catching that lynx last run I remade the hayset with a pee post, that SVS struck again
This guy was far from photogenic.
At one cat cubby I had my bait raided big time! Could see were Mr Ermine decided to make a home there. Dropped a #1 jump in front of his hole and he got caught
Had a kitty walk up to a set, and if he would have just taken that one step he would have been in the trap, The voles had wiped that bait out as well
Further down the line I could see a snare missing, walked over and had a bunny but a kitty found it first, I know he is in the area and have gear above and below him on the section of creek
Hopefully next check
Until next check be safe out there guys!
