I had just cut him loose from the Ketch-All, pole and he thought he was still caught in the 550 for a few minutes.

He slinked under the Polaris and took refuge for a few seconds, then took off like he was shot out of a cannon.

I heard about a show on amazon prime called Trapper Jake. I watched a little bit last nite and it seems like it's gonna be a pretty cool show. Thought all you trappers might be interested in it. My bad if someone has already posted about it.

If you'll set on cat or coyote sign it'll eliminate a lot of the coons, problem is them old mean arse boar coons run out there where the cats and coyotes do.

Had a new one today. Curiosity does kill the cat lol or greed gets you nowhere lol. Walk up to a trap set it's a Walk thru for cats in an old 2 rut road that is very overgrown. Well I walked up an there was a dead packrat there an my set looked disturbed but not trashed like it usually is. so I started to look where I had the cable tied to a tree an the cable went the other way lol an there was a bobcat lol. I'm guessing she caught that rat then dropped it to check my bait out an received a free rode home to my for shed hahaahah

Eric, be sure to keep an eye out for other mysterious dead rats, good many years ago we got to finding them around our traps, then they started to randomly show up everywhere, next thing you know a couple of guys around Odessa came up with the plague. Not really an issue unless you handle them and pick up a flea or two.

I haven't sold anything yet but prices don't sound great. Nice cats will be worth keeping I would say. I sent all my cats to a Canadian auction last year and did ok. I still have four up there that haven't sold yet though.

Lol sounds like we are almost running the same tracks. I work for the NRCS in Sterling.

Any tips on trapping in rocky ground where putting a leg hold trap would be just about impossible without the use of a jackhammer?

What is the consensus on the best type of snare on a yote hole?

We only set our snares on coyote holes going under our HF, and just tie the snare off the net wire. I need to order a few dozen, and there are a ton of options online.

I've had to make more than one fence repair doing this, a poorly caught coyote will make a mess out of net wire fence. I use extensions and tangle stakes if no brush is close by.

Look at Dakota line snares. Get them to make you some of their death blow snares man they are good. Then look at a video of setting snares using standouts ill see if I can find it if you do this they won't even tear the ground up if do e correctly

That's a tough job, if you have some lower country with dirt try to set there. In my experience they like to hunt the creeks and low land and live in the thick higher areas.
