Yeah, we have a lot of coyote, obviously a couple of fox, and some cats. We have had so little cold weather I don't know whether to try and trap now, or wait and see if we get some winter to put a little more fur on them?.?.

Their fur won't sell or at least the ones I have at NAFA are still there. They do make nice wall hangers once tanned. Good luck on your trapping, I sure like the photo.

We set out 10 sets today, and this was on the cam last night.

I heard the song dogs cutting loose when I was getting down out of the deer stand, hopefully we will connect tonight.

Thanks Swamp, it was a 39lb male. Not sure what pulled out, it might have been a raccoon based on the size of the catch circle. There were a few hairs stuck on the trap, but we could not tell what kind, and because of the ground cover we were not able to find an identifiable track.

Today's catch was a no catch :evil: We had one deer pull out, one rabbit pull out, (I bet he is glad I use offset jaws), and the Gray fox destroyed 3 sets. Maybe tomorrow.

Forgot to mention, that dog is pretty for a Texas dog. 8) Looks like it actually has fur in the pic and not just hair. Maybe migrated from farther north. :lol: :P

Thanks Richard, we were surprised to see how much fur it had on it also considering how warm it has been here.

Had a lil bit of luck last night, caught two male coons, one weighed 13.13lbs and the other weighed 14.7lbs. Also caught a small female bobcat, she wasn't any bigger than a house cat, turned her loose unharmed. The dang gray fox keep digging our sets up before the coyote n cats can get in them.
