How do you guys keep trapsworking in 6" of snow? Do you scrape the snow away from your set, or set the trap in the snow? I have a short yote line out.
Thanks for the info.

There are two ways I deal with the snow. Carry a small wisk broom with you and maybe a plastic feed scoop to clear an area around your sets. I also put my traps in plastic vegetable bags, the kind you can get at the grocery store to put vegetables in. They are on a roll. They are big enough for any 2, 3 or 4 size trap and thin enough that they do not get brittle. They are working great for me. I caught a coyote in a #3 that was in a bag this morning. I put a clean trap in a new bag, (the catch trap had too much ice on it to reset) rebedded it in the snow and covered with a thin layer of snow and wala, you off to the next set. By the way, if you post these questions in the trapping forum, you will get more and faster responses from all over the country. Not many of us use the state forums for questions. Good Luck :P

Yes, just put the trap in the bag, poke a small hole for the chain if your traps are centered swiveled or put the trap in the bag where the chain hangs out the end if the chain is attached to one side, get the air out and fold up the excess. Bed and anchor the trap as normal.
