Decided to check some of the post and came across your 's . That skunk on the left is a money skunk . The more white the better ..Looks like you have a truck load of coons .My best day on coons was 8 and the following day was 6 . That's some of the ones that went top lot .. A couple mild days in late Dec
That beaver with the 330 on it's butt was on a steep slide along the side of a dam beside the river . He must have came running down the slide and tried to jump over the tarp and the rest is history The trap was in the water ..Redrider ,That beaver you got in the snare is pertty cool The only way I ever snared them was through the ice . I've sat and thought just how I could set up a snare on the runs and drowned them on a slide wire in deep water . We can't set 330's on the runs anymore . In the water or over the water for us in NS
Here's pic of Mark's bear and my bear for 2008. I hope I didn't already post them Sorry for the duplicate ifen I did
WOW! That bear looks huge
Snares on the runs and slides work very well. I don't set them up to drown, but I do make sure it is staked very well. Usually a tree that is bigger than they can gnaw through in one day. Do you have to drown yours?
Can't say I've ever seen a beaver caught by the tail
Our 330's have to be set in water here.
Out here in Colorado, and in the units that I haunt, it is a tricky game to figure out how far to pack in on a rifle hunt. You want to get away from the masses that have moved game away from the roads but might want to stay close enough that you are taking advantage of the animals forced movements. There is no universal distance but I like the 1.5 to 4 mile range for day hunts where I am not planning on bivying out. This keeps you in that productive buffer zone where the animals are really...
