Recommended Posts

yeah I was looking a some wolf traps today I think I'd prefer to get a 220 on the arm than one of them.

I agree the 220 would be less painful.

 

Best of luck on your fox trapping I think I'm gonna set a couple of traps for coons tomorrow if the snow is sitting light still

We have black walnut trees here and an old trapper trick is to put a bunch of walnut hulls in a bucket with water to die your traps in. Wax can hold sent sometimes for whiley critters. Dead winter is tough trapping any time. Coons breed in January here and as soon as it warms up a bit their out and about.

You pretty much have to set your trap in their hole runway. You can tell an active hole by lots of air bubbles froze in the clear ice. A round trap made from chicken wire with a cone shaped throat like a fish trap can take more then one at a time.

Yes Greene point the cone end towards the hole and lay it right in the run way into the hole.

that was a complete waste of time and money yesterday. I made those boxes out of exterior grade plywood which was about $30 and it took me 4 hours to build them.
