Time to start this years Journal. It’s a little earlier for me to start, but I had a nephew come to town the beginning of the week and he has always wanted to check traps so I took my boys out on Saturday to make a dozen coyote sets so we would have something to check with my nephew. We lucked out because the first trap we checked had a coyote. It was a small coyote from this years litter caught in a Bridger #3 on a drag. The other 11 were empty but it was nice to have something for my nephew to see. It’s the time of year that the big spiders start migrating and we were able to play with one. We are pulling them all this Saturday then waiting for the cat season to start on November 14th.

Pulled our one week coyote line and caught coyote number 2. Had a couple sets with a coyote trap within an inch of the pan. Most likely missed because of the trap wobbling. Also missed a couple kit fox, and one grey fox. The grey fox would have been released because the season doesn’t start till November 14th but the kit fox would have made it home to the stretchers.

They are soft but really thin skinned. They don’t use them for garments. They are used as a novelty item so the price stays pretty consistent at $15 a piece. Sometimes a taxidermist will pay you $50 for one.

Neat, they do look to be thin skinned.
