The little pumpkins are my youngest babes. They rattled in a little spike that is so familiar to us weve debated in naming him.

Good lookin kids Back, glad to see they are taking a interest in hunting. Maybe you could give lessons looks like your a deer slayer not a deer hunter.

Back, that's a lot of venison laying around in those pixs!! I guess I've never seen a spike with his antlers laid flat (your culled buck). Pretty goofy. He'd probably would have been taken as an anterless WT with our rifle season up here--wouldn't be the first one shot only to be found with a nut sack and some bone on his head...

Our antlerless season they cant have antlers over 3". Most of our counties closed the winter "doe" season. From most of the camps i talk to there were too many button bucks and bucks that had shed already taken. I always pick out button bucks when a herd comes thru. Then i take does. DNR wants to protect bucks for the $500 non resident combo tags. We get/see some goofy racks in that farm. Im going to post pics of some odd balls. Lots of hermaphrodite (i think in saying that right?)/dual sex deer in that area. I took a big typical in the 90's that really looks odd. He had a small head and large body, huge rack(190's)and damaged testicals.

Lox you may be closer to the truth then you think. Indiatrial waste is common. We have a nuclear power plant 60 miles NE. Several hog/beef plants. The chute that goes into 'Dosh bay use to get choked off with dead hogs that the slaughter plants dumped. We have some crazy racks but we have alot of wild non typical s. I'll post one i took in the 90's.

We did Duke no.2's. we've done many over the years but not lately. You can buy the mink pan kits but theyre easy to make too.

Thanks for the reply, Back. Haven't trapped in a few years and don't have mink here, but I do like to modify traps. May try to make one just for fun.

They should work for coons, fox, possums and skunks. You've peobably only got 3 of the 4 there? I imagine theyd work good on ringtails too if they fight the trap?

Ringtails (up north) and fox, I like a #3 on fox seems the heavier the trap the less leg/foot damage on the bouncy Greys around here.

Yes to the offsets, #3 Bridger or a 450 MB much easier than a lighter trap on our
greys.

I knew some southwestern trappers that used no.3 offsets for fox. I always figured it was for the car or yote that may come along.

I've caught Greys in Duke #1, Bridger #1.65 and Bridger # 3's. The way they bounce around and twist (to me) makes the leg damage much worse. In the lighter traps they can do a lot more leg damage. And by lighter, I mean by weight, not strength. I never ran MB 450's, but did run Bridger #3's and not that I would, but I COULD have released a fox out of a #3 and I saw a few Greys caught in other peoples MB 450 traps that COULD have been released. The lighter (by weight) traps just allow them to twist and break bones that I find unacceptible.

That's very interesting. And.. An eye opener. Few years back we were releasing all our greys that we. could. In the 1.5 coils there was some damage but in the 1 1/2SLS they were fine. The strength of the bigger traps would scare me but i never thought about the weight. Im setting more traps in the AM. The new house isnt in a good grey area but im thinking of coming up with something. Our reds fight a trap hard too so even if no greys are caught i can experiment. Thank you.. Good idea an theory. I like a heavy trap for mink. rats and beaver for the same reason plus it takes'em to the bottom quicker.
