Am about ready but just need to get a few more 160s and build about a dozen more boxes. Should have plenty of time, wont start until at least Nov. 1st. Will be doing a lot of scouting starting mid September when grouse season starts. Me and my son should both draw a cat tag this year and hope to get one trapping.

WW-- Good luck on the cats this year. I know the tags are few and far between in Wisconsin. Let us know how you did and how you caught them.

Now you're talkin my language. I'm almost good for all the gear I'll need, more permission than I can cover, now it's all scouting. I'm anxious for snow to get here so I can get a better idea of what these cats are going to do when the cold hits.

A couple of todays scouting pics...

A draw that heads in a huge rock and sandstone semi-circle.


The other side, to the right;


Unfortunately, somone else has, of had the same idea. Maybe last year, maybe four years ago. Either way, I'll talk to the land owner about this tagless longspring since currently no one else has permission.


The next draw over. Another nice rock ledge with potential;

John was painting conibears yeseterday. The fumes wafted into the house and made me so sick. Tip: While yes, it's important that you be in a well ventilated area to do your painting, close all windows and doors to your home before you start outside, as your house will trap them inside. Bleh.

John doesn't want to start dying until October. I'm okay with that. We waited late last year as well. I would imagine if you speed dip though, you'd want to do it a lot earlier in the year to let the fumes dissapate, eh?
