the heaviest thing i ever caught was myself when setting a trap down by the creek and it went off and clamped to my shoe, hurt my big toe bad, but i got her off, the only day i felt like wearing some easy to move tenni shoes and she went off.

The biggest thing I ever caught was the Irishnikov bear... It's a hybrid bear, very very rare. It is the result of breeding the potatovore Irish Bear with a Russian bear. The result is about a 250 lb. bear with red fur all over, except for the buttcheeks which are uniquely hairless. Some suspect that this may play a role in mating practices, but further research must be done. They have blue eyes, and a unique skin mottling that is sun-sensitive. Though wary of strangers, they are easilly won over with miller light and chicken wings.

Was putting finishing touuches on cubby and had a dumb attack when puttin' pan cover on. Whoever came up with the term "soft catch" obviously has'nt had their fingers in one yet. Glad it was'nt one of my Bridger #3's ! 1 1/2 coil spring soft catches have accounted for a 19# boar 'coon and 2 grinners so far. Put out 6 sets yesterday afternoon for "Wiley" w/ #3 bridgers at the dirthole and 2 stingers on each one so gotta' go foralooksee ! I'll come up w/ some pictures if I get it right ! Plenty of " Lake affect snow" here in NW Indiana and cold enough to bring my brass monkies inside last night ! Git-R-Done!!!

I once caught a mink in a 330, set for beaver. I even had the trigger wires pushed all the way to the side trying to avoid catching an otter. ( no season ) The mink would have made it through easily, if he hadn't been carrying a two foot long sucker. Thats my smallest catch in a 330 anyway :shock: .

the smallest thing that I have ever caught was a ground squirrel. the live in the down spouts so you just take a plastic jar and make a lid out of cardboard so you can slide it shut and it will stay so i would throw rocks down the gutter and those squirrels would come streaken out of there and you close the lid and whala you got a ground squirrel. (use to skin them for practice in the summer) :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
