That's the same one I have, the ARM one. I have mine mounted on a board so it's portable though.

My wife got me one last year for Christmas . It came with the swagger, cable cutter, and bolt cutter heads. Itís nice!! Way easier than using the handheld cutter and two handed swagger. I whipped out 100 snares pretty quick

Get 'em steeltraps! No quarter given.
And you'll need more fossil fuels to keep yourself comfy.
We're gonna be in the Valley soon where temps are more to our liking.
This last job in the Panhandle was chillllllly on a buggie.
But the 41# bobcat was the prize catch of the 14 days (they thought they had a smaller lion) and so we're in like Flynn with another ranch.

I've never used James' lures but know many who do well with them.

Blessings,
Mark

Sneaky. I check the weather. And HOPEFULLY when I get there round the 28 th it will be = as they are predicting on AccuWeather. Starting 29 th will be like High of 60 and 30s low. BUT it gets colder every day toward new years. I will be on some grounds that have been trap aready. But hope for = 30 days = 100 plus coyotes? Last year daily average was 5.5 coyotes aday. So Im figuring - 3 to 4 coyotes a day puts me at or over 100 plus

Cutting a few pipes. 5 gallon buckets full. 110 in a 5 gallon bucket. With a little room. MAY try = for cold weather. A muskrat based bait. I have talked to James Lucero about = Mixing = Winter Wolf = because of the skunk essance and 2 other ingredients and making a bait? This would be for cold and used in pipes? SO may give it a good test. Along with = NightTrain in West Texas.
