Any trappers?

Postby 204 ruger » Sun Feb 07, 2010 7:23 pm

Set out some footholds this weekend and some cages. Had 1 possum so far.

I have a terrible yote and bobcat problem and man those guys are strickly nocturnal during deer season. They put a BIG dent in the rabbit population and the evidence is in the scat. Hoping to thin the herd a little piddling in a new sport.

Any Trapping 101 tips? :W: (Besides the 8000 pages of websites I've researched)

I used to trap on our dairy farm in Olive Branch.. I caught coons, foxes, possums, owls, muskrat, dogs, cats.... Never caught a coyote or bobcat though.

Can't do much to help ya on tips though.. I wasn't much good at it :P I would bet that "blaine" on mdwpf forum would be glad to give ya some tips.. He seems to be great at trapping!
