    I have been wondering if it would be productive to set traps for just a weekend while I was up north bow hunting. This weekend I had a 3 day weekend and decided to give it a try. The answer was yes. I set 2 traps at 10:00 pm thursday and had this red fox waiting for me on Fri morning.

    I reset the same trap and the next day had another red waiting for me.

    These fox were my first animals taken on a drag setup. I was finally able to set a sand pit that before was off limits because I couldn't get any stakes to hold. I decided to buy some drags and give it a try and it worked. After coming home and reading everyones posts it looks like alot of fox are being taken. Now I just gotta catch one of them yotes.

    Nice! Too bad you didn't have another couple days you would have taken another one in that set!

    That would have a bonus for sure! I guess the lesson is to go with your gut feeling! Fine catches.

    I agree. I will not be able to reset this spot until firearm deer season. I only had two traps set this weekend but plan on setting seven for deer season so we'll see how it goes. On Sunday, I had a bear visit the same set but lucky for me he wasn't too interested. Does anyone know if a bear can even fit in a #3?

    Don't worry about me getting spoiled.I am still a very humble rookie with lots to learn. It's kinda funny, when I first started all I wanted to do was catch something. Now I want to learn as much as I can about each species and what makes them tick. This is the most fun I've had while learning something in my life.
