Weeks or months from now you might find a little pimple looking thing and it have a cactus thorn in it. Seems every time I go to south or west Texas it happens to me.

Went deer hunting one year and about a month later noticed a groove in the middle of a fingernail. A few weeks later I dug a 1/8" mesquite thorn out from under my cuticle, how it I got there and me never notice it when it did is a mystery laugh

Good luck on your line today

Not related, but that “smooth” looking part of cactus ain’t exactly smooth. There are little bitty microscopic needles on that blankety blank that will have you heading to town for some tweezers and a magnifying glass!!!

Maybe those coyotes are watching their cholesterol laugh

Around here they eat pigs pretty quick, but in some areas I have heard coyotes will not touch them.

Plus. On a positive note for the owner. Their head guide. Showes me around. He seamed like a good trapper.. He had never set a MJ 600 Sterling. So I let him make a Flat Set. He use # 3 Bridger. So he got out his tarp and set a MJ 600 Sterling. To be honest. I was impressed with his = Flat Set. Looked good to me.

Told owner yesterday. In my opinion he has a capable trapper in his main guide. He makes a good looking Flat Set. Has been trapping a long time. Just doesn’t have time with busy schedule to trap whole place. My honest with the landowner may cost me work thier in future. But Karma is Karma. I love catching coyotes. But slow catching is better than NO catching. LoL! OK off to back side

I like the way you operate. The situational honesty is how I am with landowners also.

You guys are 100% right ! Know need inflating # s. Have heard of a southern guy this back fired on! I know = 7 or 8 traps that sat this = guy is a horses rear. Keeping it kid friendly ! LoL! I dont know him. But a guy I gave lessons to has taken 2 properties from him. Like I said 7 or 8 people have told me this. HE claims average Alabama properties have 12 -14 coyotes per square mile. I have been in West Texas Talked to = 2 biologist 1 game warden and read about the area close to where I trapped = 44 days total and got 226 coyotes. Was told about 5 coyotes per square mile. Could thier be a place with 12-14 coyotes per square mile in Alabama?? Sure. Trapped in North Alabamq yall see the = 10 in 1 day round them chicken farms and pits. Got 33 in 10 days. Nother place only 800 acres. Catfish ponds. Dead fish every where. I got 19 coyotes in 7 days. THOSE are my 2 best places in 35 years of trapping in Alabama. SO I could say = Yes . I have trapped on places with 10 coyotes plus a mile. BUT I dont run round telling every landowner theirs 10 coyotes per square mile on his 7000 acres hunting land ! Thats wrong. And miss leading. SO now someone = That owns land in Alabama thinks thiers 60 plus coyotes on 7000 acres. I think —- be honest. Educate who will listen. Point them to honest studys that have been done. So they can be educated and help educate others on coyotes. In the end. I feel this works better than. —— O the sky is falling and you have coyotes lurking behind every bush. Rant over. Back to trapping. LOL!
