A bit of a quandary..."Shall I go find date....but there is a butt load of snow out there....maybe I will just hibernate for another week.  Note to self: Go find that damn groundhog and kick his ass."

Trapping is basically the same for any animal. Small adjustments on trap placement improves your chances. Here I place the trap perpendicular to the wall so the mouse can come at it from either direction. Mice love to travel along the wall. There is a picture leaning against the wall so I figure the mouse will go behind it to keep out of sight so I place the trap at the end of the picture.These new traps made by the Miller Mfg. Co. called the better mouse trap "little giant" work great.

Your right Swede. It's all about trap placement. No matter how good your set is you won't catch anything if there aren't any animals around.

I see they trap in deep snow in Alaska but in the lower states winter is NOT trapping season. I made some good money years back when I found  small stream fed by a big spring that didnt freeze over in winter. I caught at least one coon a night in that water every night. The coons walked up and down it all winter looking for food.

Yeah i dont understand that. I love trapping in snow. it's so much easier to find animal sign. Snow is only a problem when it gets really deep.

U may be far enough north that the animals are still active enough to be  trapped

How much land have you got Greene?

about 600 acres. I have a huge field with a low thick spot that the coyotes and deer love.
