Thanks fellas. I live in Southeast Texas, and do almost 100% of my trapping and predator hunting in Sabine County, Texas, that is 95 miles north of me. I target coyotes, but get occasional bycatch of fox, cats and coons. Also managed to catch a couple feral pigs and a crow, this year. haha.

It was a funny year, this year. We noticed early on, that the feral hogs were kind of thin. After deer season, it rained every time I was off, and is not good for dry land trapping and dirt holes. I finally made it up, and immediately knew things were different. Hardly any coyote dung on the roads, and the little bit I found was void of hog hair. Where ever the hogs went, the coyotes went with them. I managed to put 2 - 5 day trapping trips together, and only managed to hook up with 3 coyotes, 2 cats, 1 coon, 2 feral pigs, a crow and a buzzard. I released the buzzard. I had one trap circle and empty trap. Figure it was a yote. One of the pigs I caught, only had a hoof left in my #3 Fully modified Bridger, with a gut pile 10 ft away. Wily Coyote had a pork dinner before I got back out there after daybreak. I plan to put a few more sets in, when I go back up for spring turkey season.

OK Chick, I give up, where are you located? Seems most everyone down here traps some place other than where they reside. :roll:

:? I got that part, but I was hoping for some town, not just a general direction. :roll: :lol: Sabine county is two counties over from where I am located, but south of there is where I do some trapping.

I know a guy named Chick...not sure if that is his given name or a nickname. We just moved a mobile home from Hemphill to Lufkin for rental purposes. I am familiar with Orange, I finished school in Silsbee in '63 and at that time we were football rivals.

Yeah, We played Silsbee. I went to West Orange ( not west orange-stark). My brother graduated in 63, and started as tight end. They won district that year. Not sure if you played Stark or WO. I graduated in 76, and we played Silsbee, too.

We lost to the Orange Tigers, the only loss we had that season.

Stark was 4A back then, and West Orange was 3A. They were undefeated that year, until they got past district. Stark was called Orange. Later it was Orange-Stark. It was actually Lutcher Stark High School.
