    Just been making a few sets with our 4 year old. The 1 year old is too big already to fit in the backpack, so he'll be walking along next year!

    Got a few of everything so far. Kicking myself for not having pics of a beautiful Red we caught.

    I'll be starting my 'trap line' tomorrow, and I can't wait! I only trap in the winter (and water trapping at that) after grouse season is done and trout fishing slows down. In the meantime here are a couple photos from last year. This year I will attempt at trapping mink which I've never done before, but believe I have some creeks nearby where I'll be successful. The pictures below is my favorite area to trap. I don't even have enough traps to set the entire area, along with other areas I like to trap. If there's anyone in the Hale area who would like to run around trapping / need a partner let me know...

    Ugly, but effective. Made the set at 530 pm last night. Have had high activity in the swamp but anchoring and bedding is an issue. I cut a piece of plywood into a 1 foot square and piled the hay set on top. Had to use some sticks to prevent trap rocking, but it was solid enough. I think the fox probably was peeing on it, hence the back foot. Drag worked great.

    Location, location, location.

    Landowner wanted a pic with the Coyote I shot Monday night. Might have been 2 if not for a wind shift. 20210104_202001.jpg 20210104_195956.jpg

    The end is very near for me to stop when they start breaking like this one. I caught an absolute beauty two days ago and now this one. No guard hairs on flanks/sides just matted underfur. When in the trap I thought it as just wet and matted from the snow but not so. Neck underfur was also matted badly. The only decent fur was the grotzen and the strip down the center of the back.

    This messy male went almost 50 lbs on my scale this am. He was the meanest critter I've ever caught.
