Nope nothing yet but I'm trapping a new area and to get away from the local strays I had to move the line 400 yards into some really hilly terrain

I trap in the woods by my house and let's just say my neighborhood is a dumping ground for strays

My neighbors get animals and just let them run loose till they get killed by cars or the coyotes

So I set my cage traps out where they roam and I set my leg holds further away to minimize the non target catch

Lol the cats were relocated to a local animal shelter after I kept catching the same cats night after night

 

Trapping season is the time of the year when I miss my wetterlings belt hatchet

just found a well used trail behind my house coming from the lake. Will have to set up a camera to make sure it isn't a dog. If not it will be great for a 220 blind set

Conibears make decent trap I got a 120 but I have never used it

That would be great for a blind set. I like using double spring conibears for that because you can stake them down better

I agree I pulled my traps already I just don't have time to invest in trapping anymore
