Good to hear your in action Fish!! Even though you're not into the pix posting thing, how about a thread of your season if you can?? I know your boo-coo busy between the real work and trapping, but would be great to hear some of your stories, the highs and lows of your line, and some of your tricks (because I know you have some :mrgreen: !!).

Did you ever get your Top Lot hat and certificate for the big old nice coon from the spring NAFA sale??

Fish- No, I didn't make it Huron. I've been a bit slow on connecting with SD trappers. I will try to attend next year. I'd like to take and sell enough fur to cover my supplies (still ramping up the various infrastructure of gear and fur put materials), put a little away to buy something nice for the wifey and my 20th annv. in 2+ years, and have enough gas, food, and camping money to head to KS if WAT has a rondy there again next spring. We'll see what happens...

Big fat raccoons make me happy, happy, happy as Phil Robertson would say. Keep after them.

I'm running a bunch of dog proofs, some number 11s in blind sets and a lot of 220 in trails... Haven't started the k9 line yet to early but I have been picking off the coon pretty well...
