looks like some nice coons I got two this winter, one with a conibear trap and the other with my .22 at night
best of luck in the future with the trapping, by the way .. I heard that good skins went for $30+ at the sales this winter.
Hinge-cutting serves several purposes in regard to improving both whitetail habitat and your hunting experience. There are two main types of hinge cuts including a cut for screening and funnels and a cut for bedding. Hinge cuts for screening and funnels should be done somewhere between the knee and waist to block a deer's vision as well as block a travel path. Hinge cuts for bedding should be done around chest high so that there is room for a deer to bed underneath.
