I just use a notebook with regular notebook pages. I add the reinforced rings on the sheets of paper so they don't tear out. Have used this system for years.

Thats a pretty darn good question, and something I'm sure I would have asked.
So I guess the log books would be laid out in a way that ensures you have all the correct and pertenant info?
If I were to use the Ole notebook as you guys do......exactly what info should I be writing in there?
Thanks

Whatever is of interest to you, weather, temps, sightings, catches, camp happenings, kills made, camp visitors, seasonal changes in the woods, etc. I log down the weights and sexes of all my kills and catches.

Normally we will mark down what we need for each spot on our coon run. Number of traps, type of trap, kind of set, and whether we can use a drowner or not. We only do it on the coon run though. Other than that all we use the log for is trap inventory at the end of the season. We've talked about doing it for cats so we know how many we have taken out of an area and where they were caught. So far we have found that with catching cats around here, there have been several spots that we have taken several cats out of a pretty close proximity and they haven't repopulated back, so it'd be nice to have records of all that to know if we should go back into an area or not.

Thanks for the feedback Amak, Swamp and bronco.......like to learn all I can and you all are great at helping.
Another reason I had asked about the log is that you are supposed to turn in a fur harvest log at the end of the season (at least where I am) I thought that was what you guys were talking about in the begining here.......
Is that something everyone has to do?......or is it just certain states?

Aha....gotcha. That really stinks man. Im sure its a real PITA.
Sorry I forgot to mention ya cat-man....thanks for your feedback as well.
So I guess I will run a good detailed log to start with so I can remember everything......like your philosophy on things tho Amak, keep it simple. Always been a good motto to follow. And I will do the furharvest thing as well.....pretty sure it is mandatory here. Have to check again.

:? Ambush, don't buy into Jase soundling like he likes things "simple", he is probably the MOST DETAILED person I have ever met. He may not keep a journal because he fears someone would find it and know his SECRETS! :shock: :lol: 8|-

Well, okay, but I hope you like skinnin grinners! At least if you go with swamp, you'll at least catch a few coons :roll: ......
the coons won't be any bigger,,,,,, :twisted: but at least they do have rings on their tails instead of skin. :lol:


And by the way, it's OUR pleasure to have you here! :wink:



Yepper Ambush, I'll agree with Jase once again (I hope this doesn't become a habit), we are glad to have you and the other newer members on board with us here at WAT. The KING OF GRINNERS passed away a few months ago (redrooster) and he taught us all how to enjoy the art of GRINNERS! A person just needs to go back and look at all the costumes he'd have on some of those Grinners. :lol:
