That's quite alright fish,,,,,we value your input and membership just as much as if you were a picture posting type. :wink:

I've got some pics, but none real good. rats, cats, coons, and fox. I get to a point that I hesitate to post because it's hard not to think about the saying "seen one, seen em all". If I had some real interesting shots id post for sure.

I sell them in the round now. If any of you have ever done wolf before you will soon realize the work that is involved. It is not pleasant. One we skinned for a rug mount. My son caught a very nice one this year and that's what he wanted.

I don't know about the wolf "stink" being 10X that of a coyote, but they are pretty rank! :mrgreen: Wolf let me handle a few when I visited him and it is a process to get the hide off those large critters.

Nice pixs Coon C.!!! I think those grays are about one of the cutest furbearers around (maybe someday I'll catch one) and that looks to be a big reddie up on the stump!! Why do you think they liked checking out that stump so much, near the middle of 2 trails coming together? some visual thing different than the rest of the area? micey or voles in the stump??

single logging road ,but a big stand of grape vines behind it! everything in the woods uses that road to travel.i usually have 4-6 sets on that road.it is also on the end of the hill,the saddle so to speak.

Cooncrazy your stump set for the fox reminded me of an old photograph from my 79-80 season. It took awhile but I did locate the picture.

Those are some pretty cool pics posted. Since it's trapping pics everyone wants, here are some from this year and years past.

First muskrat of 2015.

Fox from December 2014.
Image

Beaver: March 2014.
Image

Bottom edge mink caught on the last day of the season, January 2014.
Image

Some fall 2013 catches.
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Going back further.

Image

Image

I almost forgot about this red squirrel that got caught in an MB450....
Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

This is what happens when you start trapping a bit too early in the season. 1 prime coon and 1 blue coon.

For you guys that catch gray fox, are they still considered a long hair?? The sides of that one in Swamp's old pix looks nice and silky but short. Not as puffy as reddies, eh??

I would think they would be around but I am not sure. It would be cool to catch one. I was just wondering what draws them to stumps.

i'm using the stump as backing, i take a metal trap stake and ream out a hole along the stump to put bait in. bacon grease and grape jelly are two of my favorite baits. love restraunts that have those little jelly packs on the table! :roll:

Oh ok so its not actually the stump they are attracted to. I don't know why I was thinking they would be attracted to stumps maybe for look out purposes i don't know.
