That top left pic is awesome!Happy New Years!!!!! Took this day off to check the sets I put out on Saturday and get the rest of the line out. Connected on a beautiful Tom!!!!! When I set on Saturday, I didn’t find much sign, but today I was able to find a few washes with a lot of sign so I got out pretty much all the traps I have. Also connected on 2 kit fox. Not a bad way to start the year!
Yep, the cotton is to get their attention. Can’t use feathers in Nevada. It’s considered bait and you can’t have exposed bait. For lure, there’s not one brand and name of lure that I prefer. I just like to have a call lure, curiosity lure, and a skunky call lure at each set.enjoying the read, you are doing some serious trapping, wow that's some animals.
What kind of lure are you using for the cats? if you don't mind me askin....
I assume the cotton or whatever that is by your sets is an attention getter for them?
My smallest is 44” and the longest is 52” (the one i just caught.) My biggest ever was a 58” yote I trapped while going to school in Idaho. I was too long for the wire stretcher (it was before I switched to wood stretchers). 48 is a very good sized yote.What is the ave. length of the 'yotes on the stretcher? I shot a big male a few weeks back that stretched 48" nose to base of tail, from online search it appears that would be an 3X?
Would love to see a pic of all your fur tied up on the barn wall right before you sell, that's got to be impressive!
Where do you buy your stretchers? I need to order some for coyotes I've gotten back into coyote hunting this year and am absolutely addicted. Also plan on putting out some bobcat sets next December..... Lately my cats have been around 36” on the stretcher (from the nose to the base of the tail). This female was 42-1/2”. Very big for a female. Now I just need her boyfriend.
