Went to a class mates 40th B-day party a few weeks ago and his mother asked if I were still trapping, I said sure why, she took me to the corner of the garage and pointed to the soffit, about that time kit coons started churping, so I asked her when she wanted me to come out, she said asap. The next morning Hunter and I went out and set up the old live trap baited with cat food, the following morning we had a nice sow, turns out she had 4 pups.

Those and the fish pictures are too cute. It seems Hunter is going to follow in his Dad's hunting boots and be an avid outdoorsman. Keep up the good work in allowing him to be so involved. Sooner or later he'll probably have one of his little chunky fingers in a #11 longspring and then he'll learn they don't CRUSH BONES. :lol:

Welcome aboard Danial, actually the Mrs's does'nt say too much about handling the critters as long as Hunter is wearing gloves. TT I'm thrilled he likes to come along, I figure he'll learn way more out and about rather than sitting in front of the tv playing some worthless video game :wink:, and Swamp he'd wear me out setting traps so's he could set them off :lol: wont be long till he will be doing it on his own!

Nice going IT2. It's always nice to include the little ones in the action. Looks like Hunter will grow up with a healthy respect for the great out of doors.
