trapping

Mark was kinda gagged . We caught all our cats before the end of Jan. We still had a little better than a month to snare cats . Job done ahead of schedual .....LOL . We still have seed for next season . Saw quite a few tracks after we pulled the cat snares

A few more for now . There is a pic of the snares that the 2 bears were in that are in the back of my truck . They sure made a mess of them . They were the 2 most savage bears that I have ever caught . 2 big feamales . Feamales are very hard to snare . Talk about a cranky woman !!!!!!! ....... LMAO........

Hiker ,How are ya doin ?? .I've busy the past few days gathering up some coon bait . The river not far from the house is full of shad now and I've been hitting there every day . I got 20 or maybe a couple more than that in the freezer . I was wating for the water to drop so I could use the fly . That's not going to happen too soon .We have 10 to 20 mils of rain for tomorrow and then some more on Monday . June will be good for the fly fishing ,hopefully . I managed to get a 30 inch striper Monday . Got 3 shad and the bass that day .

I'm doing pretty good overall. I figured you were busy fishing or something. Congrats on the Striper. Looks like your trapping season turned out good for you this year? Market seems to be holding steady on most fur. Are you going to do any bear hunting this spring?

Not into hunting bears . I love to snare them though . Too much work involved to hunt bears . Lugging bait forever ! .With the snares the bear is there waiting for me to make the rounds . Where we set the snares .It's only a few miles from Mark so he does most of the looking . We just bait once unless something springs the snare and robs the bait . That don't happen very often .

We have some more furs on the next sale, which starts on the 22nd of May. to the 27th .I can get into my account and watch the lot #s and listen to waht is going on at the sale . That's pretty cool .. I know what we got for each fur as soon as the lot # sells .I copy down all my lot #s and watch for them to come up

We don't have a spring bear hunt in Nova Scotia . They used to have one in New Brumswick . Not sure if the still do or not . There was a lot of cryers complaining abot the spring hunting of bears . So I 'm not sure where they spring hunt bears ...
