Love this post.  For those of you new to the business, get in close with your local trappers.  I have had a ton of referrals from the trappers in my county!

Walnut Hollow that guy looks bloated, run your traps EVERY day! jk  ;)

thanks muscle20 - I called my trapping buddy and I think that is what he is thinking.  He said "growth" although he also said it could be an old injury full of puss too.  I've seen pics of deer having these type things just never a coyote.

Dougtman - I check my traps everyday this one came on a constraint snare and was very much alive with pics on page 17  ;)

Will last week I posted a pic of my first bobcat a 11 lbs. female. And thin yesterday I got my 2nd bobcat a 14 lbs. female. So now I am up to 4 possums, 3 coons, & 2 bobcats. I am sure getting hooked on this trapping. I guess it is beginners luck.

Dougs smile face shows hes kidding with you of course...but Ive seen many snared fox and coyotes with that enlargement. Its just part of snaring, even when you check them everyday on time like Walnut Hollow does.

What Bill said about the coyote. Assuming the coyote was caught in a snare, it cuts off the saliva and return of fluids past the snare and it pools up. When you skin it it will be all "jellied" up under the skin. That is what is causing it to look swollen.

 Our season ended yesterday here in Pennsylvania. For my first year I ended up with 21 raccoon, 1 red fox, 1 skunk and 1 possum. I dont think I did too bad considering I got my traps for Christmas and only trapped mainly on weekends. It was fun and im looking forward to next year. Im planning a trip next year with a friend of mine for 6 days of trapping The Elk State forest here in Pa. He runs a 10 mile line, all on foot and does very well each year. I better start getting into shape. LOL

I was happy with my season.   Other than for muskrats, I never had out more than six sets.   My main goal was to pick up a grey fox to mount with my red from last season.   I also had a goal to catch ten muskrats out of the only pond I trap for them.   I wanted to catch a bobcat and fisher, but never did connect with either.   I didn't target raccoon this season due to the prices and lack of time, but picked up two.   Had an interesting episode at the muskrat pond.   I had to release a very large Great Blue Heron.   Thankfully there was no harm done to the bird, can't say the same for me, lol.   After about five minutes, and three hits from the heron, we both emerged from the pond, one of us dry and flying, the other wet, cold and wore out.   My totals ended up being 10 muskrats, 3 opossums that I kept, 2 raccoons and 1 grey fox.   I would have liked to do a little better, but would have still been happy with only the grey fox.

I say it at the end of every season and haven't done it yet.   "Next year I'm going to run a long line."   Well maybe next season!   Will be looking forward to this thread next year.

Very good. That means you probably have a good location. Good location is probably the single most important thing in trapping.

Both of these were female so I am hoping there is a male or two around also. I set 2 more snares in the same spot as I caught these and 2 more on a couple of other yote trails close by. I can tell that the yotes are using these trails by all the fur caught in the barbed wire where they go under. I hope to catch a couple more before our season goes out on the 29th.
