Dave checked his line today. They have pulled just about everything. He just left a few sets out along side the main road going to the cabin. Picked up 2 mink, 2 weasel and another lynx.

Wolf pack, thanks amak. Yesterday was deer canning day for me, nothing to exciting. The temps now have gone down below 0 and are getting back to winter again. Today I flipped Dave's lynx. Being bored I took a few pics of the one from the week before as well as the fox and this new one. Both lynx are over 40 inches which puts them to XL.

Tomorrow I go to check my snares and otter sets. This warm spell has dumped rain on us so my snares will be most likely useless and all froze up. If that is the case this will be my final check and the end of David and my trapping journal.

Your fur put up is so sweet Wolf! 8) What's the deal with the dowels sticking out the eyes of the lynx? Is it for air flow for the head area?

Thanks Richard, and yes the 1/4 inch dowels are for more air flow to the head area. For many years now when I removed my lynx from the board the head area just in front of the eyes some times was not that dry and would have to put back on the board. By adding 2 belly board dowels that I use for marten in both eyes of the cat has rectified that problem. Wolf is another good one to use that on. You have a keen eye Richard.

Well as expected all snares were froze fox and wolf. 2 wolf bait piles were completely cleaned out with many snares pulled down or knocked to the side. Friggen warm weather in winter just irks me. Would have been a few more timbers today if not for the rain.

On a more positive note I did pick up one otter on the way in

set remade

On the way back out 3 hours latter look what's in the same trap.

Image
another otter, that's a first for me :--D

that's a rap for me. Good luck to you guys still going.

Wow that would be cool, and a good way the end it at the last pull! To bad about the snares though, but at least in the end it was good. Will miss your pics Wolf and thanks for taking us on the line with you. It is quite enjoyable! :wink: :mrgreen:

Thats very neat Wolf! I cant catch one and theyre committing hari kari on your line lol. Do you do anything thru the rest of the winter? I know some northern trappers chase weasels n beaver? Congrats on the otter and the rest of your fur.

We may have to change your handle to King Midas because you seem to have that Golden Touch! That is a great deal to catch two otter in the same trap in a few hours of each other.

Thank you Richard, that was cool to have that happen and I'm sure when George makes the next trip out to check his marten boxes there is a very good chance at another one. Now I can sit back and check out your action and many others.

Thank you. After New Years starts trout season and I do lots of that. I still have some beaver to catch and who knows what else might pop up. Good luck to you and the rest of your season.

Not sure about golden touch as much as lady luck. It was a very pleasant surprise for sure.

It was nice reading and looking at the pictures on your thread Wolf. Some great catches for sure and don't be afraid to post some of the trout picture even though this is a trapping site.

wolf- Don't know if that fresh otter banzai tops the 6 for 6 martins last years but pretty stinking cool!!! I've done that with mrats before but that's not quite in the same league. You paid for all the gas that day :)
