Not sure what Alabama got, but it started raining last night and has basically rained all day and still raining. Tomorrow afternoon will probably be remaking sets for another inch or two on Wednesday. Didnít have a thing on camera all last night and all 10 traps empty this morning. You know itís bad when the beavers didnít even move, lol.

We had about 3/4" in SW Bama last night with some hail and lots of wind/lightening. Did have critter movement though, caught 5 pigs in Pig Brig and a beaver in a snare at a slide. Second beaver at this spot, they clogged a culvert and had two small dams in a ditch. Pretty sure it was a pair of two year olds just setting up shop. Broke the upper dam and will check for activity.

Going to look at this from another angle my son ran intoÖthat head guide is already getting a salary. Heís got enough on his plate as it is besides running traps. He may NOT want the extra unless the owner/manager is willing to pay, lol.
My son told them youíre paying this guy such and such amount of money for 2 weeks of work and Iím not making near that. Now if you want to pay me extra or make it that that is all I do then fine. So thatís what he does now and extra pay.

Wanna Be not much here. Coyote wise is the point. May me feel = Un~needed. I got place bombed with Flat Sets. When about 18 to 24 sets run year round everyday might do the job. 12 might do it.

Junction? Thatís where my Uncles place was. Think he sold it now though.
I think Greys are living up to their feline side, just naturally curious. Guess itís a good thing, I always take it as not a lot of coyotes.

Not that it's particularly important, but that "sticky weed" is indeed a cactus. It's called tasajillo. Or pencil cactus. Or turkey pear. smile
