Nothing like setting yote sets in tee shirt weather in December to make for a nice day. Got some sets out for the 4H class this Saturday the class will be making sets in my garden, Iíll have a bunch of sample sets to go by. I only put 14 sets in today. With the warm weather comes more activity in the fields and the cattle stay out longer no need to bring them in in good weather.

Drove a drainage edge that was clear of corn stubble and flushed out darker yote he was heading towards my sets no reason to pop at him and spook him even worse the I did. Found a great location where 5 fields have gates leading to one water tank it just screams K-9 to me.

Will see what it brings.

The plan this year will be set heavy but trap less overall time but that is subject to change depending how the badgers/yotes look this year. Seen several yotes hit on the road thatís a indicator of a good crop in most years.

I hear you law dog. Been running coyote sets and not wearing more than a light sweatshirt. Weird.
But so far catches have been decent and coyotes have worked sets well.
Tbones and dirtholes mostly. Even have two from remakes.
If nothing else I haven't had to reach for the waxed dirt yet. Warm and dry here, and the powdery dirt sifts and performs well each night. grin

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Did you score?


I got myself a seniors' GPS.
Not only does it tell me how to get to my destination,
it tells me why I wanted to go there.

I'm at four badgers this week. Usually its freezing at night and we don't see them much here in December. Weather has been incredibly mild though.
Good job sir!
