cathryn's thread with Jerry's trapping was awesome, thank you for sharing cathryn !

Lets see some more Wyoming sets and catches.
We started our line this past weekend.
No catches for 3 days of great weather then front rolled in and the spouse took a nice female coyote out of the hay meadows. Next morning with 3 inches of snow we had 2 more coyotes, nice males.
Catches were trail sets or over an old beef calf carcass that was put down. Carcass sets were mainly poop and a pee set away from the carcass pile on drags. The new Strained Chains drags worked great.

Good luck and lets see your Wyoming sets and catches.

Yes, bobcat trapping starts very soon. We had a couple of sets out to see how fur looks but no catches.

The whole ranch is ridges with singular trees, we don't have enough traps ,lol.

We took a 39 lb bobcat last year. Price looks better this year too on cats, according to FHA anyway.

We are not experienced in snares but trying to learn.
Hoping to get a few out next week.

The loss of our trapping mentor was a big blow to our beaver and snare education. He knew his stuff.
RIP Forrest.

Got those drags from Strained Chains Trapline Mod., Chris Morgan. They are sturdy and sharp.
The pic shows where the drag was anchored, the bush in the muddle, and he made it about 30 yds to the draw and rock that he got hung up on.
We like the drags quite a bit but only have limited use right now, more going out after Christmas.
About $10 each I think he charged.

Finally an update.
Deep snow and drifts have us pulling some sets.
Got a couple of snares out and caught my 1str bobcat via snare.
Big thanks to Forrest, RIP sir, for the snares. He was our mentor here in Wyoming for trapping.

25 lb tom and he has nice spots.

Way to Go!! Glad too see You have set out some snares. Snares are a Great tool to use when conditions are right. I have been wondering how your trapping season was going?
Thanks for the pictures. I like snare's also!!

Had some deer go through the next morning and resetting a snare takes much less time than a trap and no chance of catching one either on a trail set like this.
We have some bobcat specific sized snares our mentor gave us he made before he passed and this is their first use. Pretty happy to have a catch.

We're going to take a little break and then re set in about a couple of weeks or so, when the snow settles a little more or maybe melts a bit.
We'll relocate most of our traps then.

It's been rough for us. Last week of deep snow has us needing a break.

Going to check and then spring traps in the morning, We'll reset in 2 weeks I think.
Looking for our other snares now, we put them in storage somewhere, lol.

Pulled our sets today.

Husband had another miss at one cubby, different sized track so we're pretty sure diff. bobcat.

Had a cat walk by a set and down the creek to another cubby and make the fatal mistake.
Not a big cat but decent, belly looks to be a little cast but we'll see what is offered.
Female, but in this area we don't release them unless young, she had big paws and teeth look mature.
Caught her in a K9 extreme and it looks huge on her foot.

Second year in a row to catch at this cubby site.

Husband also ambushed a coyote on the way home.
Nice little break for us, until some snow melts. [Linked Image]

Is that coyote super pale or is that snow on the fur? Congrats on a great season!
