And here's a remake pic. Didn't have enough water to drown one here so I had my trap anchored off.

Drowners don't discriminate! Once whatever gets hooked up it's going down.

Good job Hank. You are back with a vengance on the beavers. Congrats on the scuba coon too. That was funny. I think I would have a better chance trapping a gobbler right now vs. call one.

I've snagged one more coon for 5 total......They're definitely not in here as thick as last year.

Another beaver today! Pretty good run. I had 7 sets out and caught 7 beaver and a coon in 8 nights. Pulled traps today so that's it until next week.

My coon/possum sets have been cold now for over a week. I have to believe that last years trapping effort is still paying off. Last year I took out around 23 in a couple week time period and this year I’ve trapped 5…..big difference.

While checking my coon sets this morning, I had a yote come slipping up the creek bottom on me. I was standing still and he never saw me. Went back to the house and got a couple 550’s. Got something for him if he comes back. thumbup

Caught a giant possum in one of my footholds………by far the biggest possum I’ve ever trapped.

[Linked Image]

Whatever he’s been eating, he’s been eating good……….He’s about the same shape as a wild pig.

[Linked Image]

Check out the claws……Glad that he’s no longer roaming around my nesting area.

My other set…….

Coyotes, coons, or possums........There's a couple big tree blown downs next to each other that were uprooted in a storm a few years ago. That's the very top end of one I made my set in.... I was checking my coon traps the other morning and watched a yote come through and hunt the little holes and such before moving on. That hole in the log was already created for me. I put some bait in the back of the hole with a little lure on top, I'm hoping that yote comes back through. If he wants to stick his nose in the back of that hole then he should have to step down on my pan that's sitting right in front of the hole.....we'll see. I was just trying to work with the terrain and the situation.

Caught another giant male possum in one of my dirt hole sets this morning. The critters are thin around here but I'm sitting on a major drainage so there's always a chance of catching some travelers. No sign of the yote coming back yet.

Going to run them until Saturday.

Snagged another young adolescent coon last night…..another little female. I have to believe at this point that no adult coons (or very, very few) have their home ranges overlapping my trapping efforts. I also haven't caught any female possums yet. I caught numerous ones last year that were all full of babies.

One more young coon last night…..That makes our total for this season 7 coons and 2 possums.

Those young coons are some bait robbing little jokers. They’ve been just picking the mini-marshmallows out of the trap without triggering it. I bought some big marshmallows and placed one under the trigger and I’ll be danged if they didn’t somehow manage to get it out too. My “treasure hunt” technique worked like a charm though on the last two. I place 6 or 7 mini-marshmallows under the trigger and then poured corn meal over them until it was filled up to the trigger. I then tossed a couple mini-mallows on top just to entice them on in. The corn meal causes them to have to dig around in the trap to get the bait out and in the process they trigger it.

I've been folding leaves, and placing under the trigger on top of the bait.

Have to pull the leaves out, which trip the trigger.

Pulled traps this am, and caught 2 more coons, for a total of 11 in 4 days.
