I've been following this forum for the last year, and I just now decided to join. I've been trapping for three years now. It's just a hobby, but it's one that I really like, and hope to learn a lot more about from you guys.

My mom just bought a house right on the edge of Plattsmouth. When I was there last I was looking around the area at all the good places I could trap if I lived there.

My friends land where I trap at is only about 10 miles from Branched Oak. There's definitely a lot of wild life in that area.

I am just a couple hours south of you. An hour south of Beatrice, Ne.

I actually googled where Barnes is because I saw how many coyotes you catch. It made me wonder how you can be relatively close to me, and catch all of them, and I can't. :)

If I was a betting man, I would bet you have just as many. There are more trappers around me that have a hard time getting them to step on a pan. It's all about knowing your target my friend. The only difference between me and them is that I have taken the time to study and learn them. That also means a lot of foot steps and learning from my mistakes. I still make plenty of them, but they are getting fewer. :wink:

In the last couple years I think I've read everything there was on the internet about coyotes, and I still don't know enough about them. I can spend hours just walking around outside following coyote tracks trying to figure out just exactly what they were doing. I've also made mistakes that I've learned from. The idea of trying to trap something that makes its living off of hunting other animals is beyond fun for me. Even if I don't catch any.

Been there done that. What I learned on the net is that 99.9% of it is garbage and I steer away from it. It caused me to many headaches.

WAT is by far the best place to go for information about trapping from all that I've seen.
