Grandpa died in 1981 but I can still see him shaking his head about trapping before the fur is prime.But we did string together 5 days with highs only in the 60s.Gotta love it.

Good luck! I'll wait until next weekend when muskrat opens. A little more prep and scouting until then.
Once again look forward to trapping season and following this thread. Enjoy your time in the woods,fields, streams and marshes as you venture out!

I'm waiting till Sunday to start trapping coyotes. They won't be worth any more by this time next week.Or the week after that.

I get paid to trap rats so I'll get after them once I'm done trapping some coyotes.

Do you prefer cable restraints over footholds Beav?

Good luck, seasons open! Time to put our skills to the test against the animals we love to chase, hopefully everyone has a safe and productive season and finds their traps full and their hip boots dry.


Life sure is tough when you don't learn from the mistakes of others.

And the ones you don't catch this week won't be worth anything. Go get em.

I would like to use CRs on private land when the coyote season opens. But so far they haven't passed that law. I have some land where there are coyote trails. Some are natural and some are man made and I have to wait till Dec 1st to set them. CRs shine once we have some tracking snow.

I'm waiting for muskrat and mink to open though I won't target mink on purpose until November.

Welcome to tMan

I don't think I will target mink at all this year due to the low prices.

Most of my ground still has standing crops In the feilds.
Burnt a tank of gas today just making contact with my land owners. I always put It off to the last thing I just hate knocking on doors.

Used to live near a mink ranch in Northern WI back in the 70's. Fox were pelted in mid Nov. Mink were always pelted at Thanksgiving. Catching fur before that becomes a waste of the resource.

The argument there is, in todayís market, the extra effort put into harvest as conditions deteriorate outweighs the slight premium received.

I too advocate the harvest of prime skins but will submit to those who choose T shirt trapping and ez pickins. There isnít enough of us left to get worked up over it.
