Nice catches HFT.
You're piling up the cats eh?
Too bad about the lice on the coyote,see it here on wolves every few years.
Good to get rid of those animals just the same,maybe help prevent it spread a bit.

Thanks guys! smile

bronco they are sweet traps, the only thing I wish I would have done was get the offsets.

Boco we are on a high cycle and I am trying to take advantage of it smile Normally I only get 1-3 a year.

After talking with Tony Hollis on the ATA forum, he is a bio in FBX, that yote had lice and not mange. Either way feel bad for any critter that gets that junk and happy it is out of the game especially with mating season coming.

Still pretty warm here, the snow has glazed over and got a pretty good crust going, Calling for cooler temps this next week so hopefully critters will get moving. Cut some kitty track working around my gear he just gotta find it.

I pulled mink gear because I only got a few of them and figured it would be best to let the ones out there do there thing for next year. And of course little miss mink had to jump right on the pan of a #3 at a kitty set.

Until next check you guys be safe out there!

Well sure enough we got a little snow Saturday night and last night the temps dropped to the mid teens. Wasn't expecting to much out on the short line today, figured I'd drop some bait and dig some gear out. To my surprise I had these 2 beauties' waiting for me smile

This one was circling a bait station....

This one ran the wrong bunny trail...........

Kinda funny, I spoke to Brian from the SCATA on Friday about sending fur in for their online auction, he had asked if I had any cross smile I know where this one is going smile

Be safe out there!

Good deal! One of these days I will get a cross. Actually kinda hope my wife gets one before me, but she is not trapping this year. Either way I want one for the wall.

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 smile

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 smile

Picked up this nice otter in a set that I will call the Bronco set from now on smile 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 smile 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 smile

[Linked Image]

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 smile

[Linked Image]

After catching that lynx last run I remade the hayset with a pee post, that SVS struck again smile This guy was far from photogenic.

[Linked Image]

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 smile

[Linked Image]

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 frown 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 smile Hopefully next check smile

Until next check be safe out there guys!

That's cool that the otter set connected. Have you ever made a hole like that on purpose and set it?

Thanks guys smile
AV nothing to hard to handle smile
bfisch, yep do it every year, If I can hear water running I chip a hole and try to keep it open. There is one spot between 2 old lodges that I really like, last year I took 3 off of it, It is always just a matter of those jokers moving, out of all critters I find them the most unpredictable.

Bronco - that's all you got for him? I'd let him have it a little harder!

John is always dishing out orders and giving everybody else the business, see, but there is more than one way to skin a cat. haha

I enjoyed the otter story John :-)

Well not a whole bunch happening out on the line, It finally got cold and we got a little snow so it seems the critters are all hunkered down, A few fox track about it.

Been seeing plenty of these guys though smile

Shoot I can't get a fox or coyote to come into a bait station, just lynx, ermine and birds. Nice red John!

How is the fur holding up on the foxes? They start to go down hill here towards the end of the month.
