What's everybody gonna be planning? Markets are tough, gas is high, anybody gonna hit fur yet, just set a few around the back 40, hang em for a year maybe more? It's definitely a tough time to get new people involved with everything going on.

I might just trap 30 some coon. They are fast to catch easy to put up. And they are worth about the same as WI coyotes.

I will for sure. Trap all species. And coon is 40 to 60 percent of my total catch for the season. Many land owners ask me to do such. And they ain't a terrible amount of labor, really.

I'll be chasing them about as hard as I can, mainly just to do my part. I plan to try to set some new personal records with the ol thermal.

I am doing some damage work now for a few customers with some cash for expenses and gas. I will trap a few more than in the last few years as farmers are wanting coon numbers down. With higher crop prices damage costs them more and several are willing to chip in for some expense monies. It surprises me that we don't have more diseases yet with the numbers we have had over the last 4-6 years.

Pretty much have to, to keep farmers happy. And they sure fill up coyote and rat sets! But only going to target them where they are pounding the corn I think.

I think so. I'll stick close to home and trap a good sized river bottom. Should be plenty to keep me busy.


Just passin through

I'm going to work and maybe toss some money at bobcats and beavers later in the season.

I think all of you are going to reassess when gas is over $6.00 a gallon in the fall and you are chasing after worthless coons. Only ADC work will make any financial sense.

Yes, I will work on them. We have so many around here, low market is producing a bumper crop.
This was from back of my property couple nights ago at a feeder we have set up for does and fawns.

The coons have become the local bullies, and by my cam pics they always move in and chase off the deer.

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

Those are some nice 'coons, much prettier than some of the pee stain yellow ones I've been catching recently.

I'm the guy who made that blanket. Nothing like a little free advertising!! Those are bleached ND coon nothing else really special about them. It turned out very well and am more than pleased with it. It has a black velveteen backing and a quilt liner in between the layers. I have been sleeping with it. It's awesome!!

I wouldn't say they are worthless,still some mo ey to be made but with high gas prices it definitely cuts into it..
