There are a lot of variables. You can reduce the population to a point. They are like wild hogs. You would have to kill such a high percentage to make any kind of difference. It is more about land protection than total eradication. The land loss is getting better every year but participation is a different story. There are very few true trappers that still run traps every day. Most people are just riding around shooting them. The land I trap is better suited for trapping and not just riding around. Days that I catch 20-30 a day I may only see 1 or 2 that I can actually shoot, but every section of land is different. The weather is the biggest factor. The perfect weather is 30-50 degrees with 1-5 MPH north wind. If it gets any colder or hotter the numbers drop off drastically or if the wind gets to 10-15 at night it will effect them.

Just out of curiosity what is the bounty on one of them? You turn in the tails to claim it?

Trying to catch my first Lynx. After that, the more the better. Will also trap whatever is around, but lynx is it. It hasn't been open on the KP in years.

That and catch a coyote in a Pipe Dream Set?

Got my start at Mark Junes predator academy way back in 2017. Lots of hands in that photo, yours, RJ, Tom Krause, Wayne Derrick, Gary Jepson, Andy Weiser, Mitchell Simpson. I have been blessed to ride with some great teachers. I am thankful for them all grin
