by the way Bill if you get started, this to me is more addicting then the actual hunt, im as excited as a little kid on xmas morning when i pull my memory cards, as you never know what you are going to get.
some from wyoming
I normally have no trouble trapping a raccoon. Last fall I had one that was springing my live traps, my conibear traps, and my foot holds. So I put the trail cam to work and took some videos of him. After seeing what he was doing, I made a new plan. I put the stake in the creek, buried the chain under the water and actually set the trap in the mud under the water. No part of the set was above the water. Then I put some sardines on the rock and waited. As you can see in the pictures, he came in carefully, and in the second picture he was caught. You can see him mounted now in the Mammal section under the Chillin' Raccoon post. These trail cameras can help in more ways than you can imagine.
That's pretty cool.I haven't used them trapping yet but always wanted to.
You really need to do it. It will show you all kinds of little details that will really increase your catch. You would be surprised at some of the things animals do around the trap site. Good luck!
I just got some wonderful pix of coyotes in CA with my trail cam when I went to visit parents. It is May and they are shedding, but they still look pretty good. I'd love to have some of that wool to spin into yarn! Wish I could convince them to stand still for the brushing!
JimB, it's almost torturous to look at that beautiful bear every other time you post, but please don't stop.
OK Big Sky,this one's for you.
Here are some of a coyote that my crittercam caught while visiting my family in CA. This female was quite inquisitive when we caught a couple of CA ground squirrels in a live trap. Her mate was quite a bit shyer and only shows up in after dark photos.
And here's a closeup of her pretty face!
JimB fantastic picture, but thankfully less painful. My hunting partner, by he way, killed a big chocolate night before last. I was stuck at a church meeting and couldn't go. Just my luck. He took another friend last night and saw six bears including another big chocolate fighting with a big black. They couldn't get to them before the sun went down though. Where was I, attending a jr. high school graduation ceremony for one of my kids. Season's over for now up here, but I have my fingers crossed for spring. So please keep posting away it'll keep me motivated between seasons. That and I just really enjoy photographs of bears, especially colored ones.
I believe the rut's just started.We have 2 weeks left.
