I had to give my fisher back to the state, I live too far west of their natural range. Theyre plentiful further east.

That Mt Lion video is pretty neat!  Here is a Yote caught this past weekend on my property.

Here is a picture of the snares I make.. Nothing more than 12-14 ga wire, 1/16" cable, a ferrule, a double ferrule, and a cam..

I go with a roughly 9" loop, fox are a bit bigger up here and I catch coyotes from time to time.. if I am on a coyote set, I use a 11' loop with 3.32 cable.., Same 12 or 14 ga support wire..

I open the loop, come in form the side, position the snare where I want it, then 2 wraps around the tree and 1 time over itself, twist back on the tree and thats it.. I just bend the wire up and down to give me the proper height.. 8-9" for fox   or 10-12" for coyote and Lynx

yep good info, I can't use cam locks here and I haven't tried the 1/16 cable, I'm just as likely to catch a yote as a red or gray where I trap, not sure how 1/16 with out a cam lock, would hold up to a yote.?  thanks

this was my first mink i ever caught and i was stoked this was my 3rd year and only caught coon.


this today is still my most ive caught i only hade 3doz traps out not very good percent but still my best.


hides hangin to dry out i dont strech my own i just take them to my buyer dry and brushed out.


and this beaver is my one of my most memoroble catch. 59lbs caught in a 1 1/2 double coil duke by the back foot the day my son was born. And the day before to take wife into hospital because she was have contractions i told her wait I have to run my trap line first. boy was she pissed. wen i was done then we went in. i even left later that night to come back home to skin she was even more mad.



this time i skun it right and since it wasnt prime early nov beav think i got 30bucks


then this was my last year i trapped catch.

Hey Patrick,

In one of Bob Wendt's trapping videos, he releases a badger by hand with no catch pole or tools.  Why didn't you just talk nice to the Cougar and try that???    ;D ;D ;D

Seriously though, excellent video and pictures, thanks for sharing.
