Default Who is or isnt trapping this year...

As title says ,who is still at it and what are you targeting ? I'm still snaring coyotes but only for a month or so..trying remove some of the local population before the eagle migration get here to eat my catch .

I am still trapping, focusing more on under ice beaver and wolves. Have a few baits out for coyotes more or less to help out the other critters and I do just enjoy the process. Noticing a lot more coyotes than usual as well. Curious to hear what others are up to?

Thanks

Running the trapline for mainly marten and fisher. Baiting only around 50 traps and increasing time between trap checks to lower diesel and gas costs. No coyotes just some beaver for bait.

For the first time in over 15 years, Iím not snaring coyotes. I really miss it, but with the cost of fuel, and the price was of coyotes, Iím going to wait and hope fur prices go back up. Still shooting a few with the varmint call though.

I still some dogs left from last year but ave$. 45 on the ones sold so I consider myself fortunate there . I dont have to travel far either ,caught the last 2 within 400 yds of the house ...rest of my snares are within 20 mins drive.

I’m not

I thought about setting some Fisher and Lynx sets but really didn’t think that hard. Coyotes have been the thing I truly liked snaring.

yes great looking wolverines, the one animal i think should always be mounted
life size, just tanned is pretty cool to. Hate to see some of those northern ones just cut up for parka trim.
That skull will be a cool addition as well when cleaned up.
