Just pale, but had some snow on it.
We get the slivery ones mostly.

Was a short season for us with access limited due to snow.

I thought trapping catches were suppose to show live animal in trap, unless water sets. Leave no doubt as to showing roadkill.

Not sure what you're implying but I've posted the catches in traps and made clear the one coyote was an ambush with a rifle on the way home. You may pick up road kill but we do not and post it as trapping catches.
Can't get a pic of every animal in the trap alive.
If I posted as a trapping catch it was caught in a trap.

Live coyote in a trap, look for the drag chain

Live coyote in a trap, look closely and you can see it.

Dead bobcat in a snare because I have yet to find one that holds bobcats alive until I check them. Snare support visible in the pic.

wytex, in the future please only post videos of animals in traps so we can be sure that you are not using taxidermy mounts of roadkill.

Also, if you ever post any pictures of dead water trapped animals please include an autopsy report from a board certified vet showing that the animal was in fact trapped and not, you know, road kill.

And while you are at it, from now on, please only make sets where you can get an internationally recognizable landmark in the video or picture so we can be sure you are really in Wyoming. But make sure that none of the landmarks are roads so we don't mistakenly think that the animal was, you know, roadkill.

This will help prevent any confusion that these are truly Wyoming sets and catches. crazy

Great pics and thread.
Have you ever run into making a catch on drags and then a snowfall comes and covers the marks of the drag or are all yours ďpre hookedĒ?

No I donít have to deal with snow and have a couple traps out now with drags. Sorta nervous because Iíve never used them, but wanted a set in these spots and itís about impossible to drive and pull an anchor in those spots unless I wait until a real good rain.

Looked up Dixie and he/she has never started a thread. But they did post a pic of a fox in a trap. Thatís the only thing Iíve found. And Iíve never heard of picking up road kill to post pics of unless itís a huge buck, then I wouldnít claim it as my own unless my F150 took it out, lol.

We do prehook most drags and yes snow can cover it's trail. Snow also can allow the drag to slide over it and leave very faint marks.
Had a bobcat hide in the willows on a drag that left virtually no marks, just very faint little skips on the surface of the snow.

We are liking the drags from Chris Morgan, Strained Chains . They seems to hook up well and are sharp.

Same here, lots of snow made accessing most of my locations an adventure. We went to visit family for Christmas and I set off all my traps before we left and tucked them under brush or hung in trees intending to reset when we got back. Haven't been able to get to those locations since and I won't be able to for at least a week. Hope we get lots of grass out of it. Happy trapping

You forgot to tell him to keep making two trips to his traps. The first trip to dispatch the critter. The second trip to go back and get his phone, because he forgot to take a pic before he dispatched it.

OK, here is some of my pics. Sorry if the donít rotate right. OK, I remember now why I havenít shown pics. Iím use to to all other forums being user friendly. That is, click on picture icon above, select from photo library, and done. I donít know how to do this archaic posting. But if someone posts an easy link, Iíll post some of my trapping catches. And theyíre all alive, in trap. No roadkill.

I take all the pics and getting them while still alive sometimes is not feasible.
We run our line together, both setting and the spouse dispatches.

ttzt we have some buried under snow too. We dug out enough getting stuck this past winter, we'll let them uncover themselves.

Going to send our bobcats to FHA this year looks like - coyotes too, unless the FHA agent offers enough when we meet him.
