You can't catch anything if traps aren't out.
Set on location.
Go easy with lures/baits.
Be patient.

A Yooper is someone from the U.P. (Upper Peninsula) of Michigan. Commonly referred to as "Dose Yoopers up der, eh." :D (Bagman, I'm a Finlander so I'm qualified to say that. :P )

As far as tips and pointers, just ask. What would you like to catch?

Ya trapperKD you got it. We call ourselves yoopers and people from down state we call them trolls. But any way im mostly looking at trapping fox and coyote because that is what i was started on. A freind of my dads let me use his about 8 years ago and i caught a fox. Iv been doing a lil muskrat trapping in my pond. A few coon on accident at my camp trying for otter in the river. But thats bout it. Any tips on anything i will love to have and use. thanks

On my farm we hav a lot of berms from pushing dirt for fences and such...I have had good luck with making a bank set like for a coon in the side of the berm, and putting fox lure in the back of the hole. I put the trap off to the right side about two inches and about 7 inches from the hole. Every time i have done it it produces a fox or a miss withing two nights. It gave me a miss this year, with no action on the remake. Of course i am using a burdock leaf as a pan cover so there is a lot wrong with that :roll:
