Any bigger and you could have made a one piece sleeping bag out of that. You might want to consider a hoist beam in the back of the truck just to save on your arms. :) Nice hog Richard.

Well a lot of mud to deal with after all of the rain we have had lately. Hopefully it will dry up for a few days. Been hanging a few snare while it been raining though. Was blessed with a nice female yote for Christmas Eve. A nice silver back and white belly.

That's the same yote in both pics. Actually she was not over 25lbs. Did not weigh her, but she was not very heavy. I agree that first pic she does look like a brute, very deceiving. :shock: :wink:

Pretty darn cold this morning. -15 windchill, but did not get the snow that was forcasted. Got 1 small coon a couple of days ago and got 1 yote today. A big male, but his color is off, very dark and the alphas did a number on him to. Half of the hair on his tail was pulled out and some on his flank. Am sure there will be plenty of bite holes to sew up after fleshing. :evil: I think you can notice the tuffs of hair in the catch circle. That last female had plenty of holes in her also. Both of them were caught at this same set. Mafia set scores agian.

I know about all the the rain y'all have been getting. We have been very wet here for a week now. What you are seeing is not dry dirt, it is wet dirt frozen solid. :evil: For bedding I have to get my dry or moist dirt off of steep erosion slips that are close by. I prefer slightly moist dirt for bedding. It does a better job for me to get everything solid and with calcium chloride for antifreeze the traps stay in good working order as long as I keep the inside of the jaws free of most dirt. It was -15 windchill yesturday and the night this yote was caught. So with this system my traps in the harsh temps keep on working even useing moist dirt to bed with. The screen cover I use keeps the dirt out of the inside of my jaws for the most part. :wink:

We've always had great luck with that method too Rich. It's what I still use when I make sets specific for yotes or red fox. For cats I would rather just cover direct with dry peat moss and no pan protection over or under. The peat wont get under the pan enough to bother it a bit. I've used peat like that for yotes/fox( to cover, NEVER to bed), but in order to blend it better i always dust the top with dirt and little grass chaff. Im like you....I much prefer bedding to have a touch of moisture. Really dry seems to scoot right out from under the trap and it never truely gets solid. Almost like sand but not as bad.

Yep I agree with both of you, dry dirt is nice to trap in but a little moisture sure helps anchor a trap in place. I am having trouble this week. With all the rain we had and then this very low temperature. I set in mud a week ago and am now paying for it. I am using CC too, but obviously not enough. Woes-Me

Unfortunately, too wet then cold puts the screws to us all. Im not looking forward to the freezing rain then snow forecasted for fri night into sat. Remake city on the footholds. I dont think there is a thing we can do when its too wet/cold out but remake as needed, and or shift to snares. The more im using the snares the more im liking them. Low maintenance, and as mohawk pointed out to me, less non targets. Besides, when some dope steals them it dont hurt as bad! (Happened this last week. Idiot took two 1/16" cat snares! What will they do with them? Lol! )

Yes they did. It happens often in my area. Alpha's want the yote to move on with them and they can't. They will bite, pull and sometimes kill the trapped yote. I think when one gets killed it may not be a pack member though. I think it may be a transient yote or from another pack.

Been a little slow for the last couple of weeks. Have had some hard times this last week to. My wife's dad just passed on this week, heart attack. Melissa was very close to him. :cry: Funeral was yesturday. My old truck was broke down for a few days also, but all fixed now. Caught a skunk about a week ago and a female yote today. Fur still looking purty good so far. Flat sets from here on out to the end. Breeding time. :wink:
