^^^^^^ this trap setting here so long reminds me of something else I heard on here. Someone was talking about = A defeated set? I thought to myself = This defeated set crap is nonsense! Defeated trap???? Did the coyote come by with a pair of bolt cutters and leave with the trap???

Thanks for taking time to post your job pics and info. Not very many trappers running like you are.

Thanks SW. My back feels totally different today. Little bourbon and went to bed at 9 pm. Fixed it right up. 1 coyote so far. Should be back to bunkhouse by 10 am. Get hair cut. Finish washing cloths and get blood pressure washed off a few traps. And I will be done. And have some off time

I caught a coyote last year on a set that had been out for 4 months, buried under snow for a good chunk of it, before it melted off and connected

KS it would. Because I have 50 lbs in each tire. But. Pros and Cons. I have some places with bad misquote then places that are just sandy. So airing up and down would be alot.

Thanks. Still picking up MJ 600 Sterlings. May take 3 or 4 days off and do some = Texas. Sight seeing. Then again may not

Do you "re-treat" (dip, etc.) all those traps, or just set them as is?
