I only get to do this on the weekends. Hope to start setting traps around noon tommorrow. Going back to the first place I set at, well be running 11 legholds & 6 DPS for coon. Might put out the colony traps for rats if I find good sign in the marsh. Will also try to post picks of my sets. Also can someone PM me on different ways of dispatching animals other than a 22. I am active duty navy so I cann't take a weapon on base and the place I will trap the rest of the season is on the way home from work.

Waited 2 hours in my truck for the rain to let up so I could start my walk to where I wanted put my traps out. It's just over a mile and thats along way to go sopping wet. Put out 6 DPs and 2 1.5 CS fingers are crossed. Guess I will have to learn how to rap now.

Got 2 today both males. Both were in the DPs and had something pull out of the legholds and managed eat the bait at both sets. My traps are about 6' apart or so. The legholds I try to set about 6" from a log. Noticed that they like to dig under the logs for grubs.I would upload pictures but photobucket is giving me a hard time. Don't care to much for rapping, so I will go back to what I know works. The place I took them to gave me $4 a piece for them and also told me he would take every rat I bring him for the same price. I figured the price is fair becuase he is skinning and fleshing them and these marsh coons aint that big. I think the marsh boat is going to get loaded up this week and put in the water for some rats. Also caught my thumb today it smarted alittle luckly I had leather gloves on.
