I have the same problem, but most of my sets are scent posts.....Will i need to resift on them you think? I am using duke #2 for fox, and they are pretty stout, i imagine they could tear through a little mud.

You should not have to reset the trap unless it is sprung. As for reluring or redoing scent posts, yes, I would and had to because of rain here also. If weather is warm where you are, do not overdo the amount of lure you use. For scent posts, I use a squirt bottle with adjustable nozzel, I put it on stream and give it only 1 pump.
