Today’s Catch

Trapping-General

Well guys, this is the first catch from my DP traps that I set out several nights ago. The first is a 20lb boar coon that was taken on dog food and fish oil. Possums, I have learned love dog food too and are just as capable of being caught in a DP as that masked bandit of the night. Since I run a short weekend line, I had set out six Duke DP’s plus a Duke #3 and a snare. See I told you I liked leg holds a little! This was late on a Friday night. On Saturday afternoon, I checked the line and found those two possums above. On Sunday morning, I found Mr. Coon. I am not one to throw anything away. I am currently fleshing all three, while looking for someone to take the meat. Incidentally, I found out that coon peckers (sorry ladies) may be worth more than the fur is right now. This guy was definitely packing…….

When I worked my line on Monday morning, I found my snare and leg hold stolen and sets destroyed. I am sure some anti-American found them and threw them in the nearby pond. Such is the life of  a trapper.

What did I learn? Set your traps away from the road. Even on private property. Expect some losses. Put up cameras. Don’t get down on yourself or society. Tomorrows a new trapping day. Peace.

Welcome!
