How many sets do you normally run at a time ? I try to set at least 30 -50 but I like to run 80-100 for my Christmas line.

So what is your average line?

Most I ran was around 45, and I ran and coon and coyote line with about 45 last spring. Then earlier this year I ran 45 rat traps. If we get good ice, I'll run about 75-100 in huts during my Christmas break.

3-6 laugh

I am trapping my place though and targeting coyotes
If the coons start showing up in every pic at the deer feeder I will work on them a little too and that would add 3-4 DPs to the mix

When I used to run a water line I tried to put in 200 sets a day the first 2 days.


I have nothing clever to put here.

Remove some problem coyotes for a farmer? About the same.

Remove A problem animal? 6-10

Trapping coon in Iowa for fur? 100-150

Trapping coyotes in IL for fur? 20-50

Trapping muskrats in a pond? 6-12

Trapping muskrats in SD before freeze up? 200+

Yes but by water trapping I mean rat sets on a lake out of the boat. That was in my youth and it would kill me trying to pound that many in now.

Been there ,
It was harder fore my wife second tome around, it's funny when we were raising them it was tough but now we can't get enough of them as long as it's not for more than a few days a time lol.
