Just like throwing fish over the dam of an over stocked pond.
Not even a close analogy. A fish for a fish. An opossum for a turkey.
Chime in other posters in this thread. Green or finished?
I sold mine whole animals. That is the way mcCormick said he wanted them.
A fish to improve the health of the fishery population.
A coon or opossum to improve the health of the wildlife population.
Weeds is weeds. There are people that eat dandelion greens. I still kill dandelions without eating them.
Did he buy the coons and opossums ?
I heard one report where a guy couldn't sell his.
Coyotes mine brought $10
1 grinner this morning
My hopes were up for nothing.
No catches and only 1 marshmallow gone.
15 coons 14 opossums.
Brings me to 29 for the year. Substantially less than last year's 83 with similar trapping efforts both years.
I started earlier this year but we had more cold days to stifle activity , so I would say effort is about the same.
I did go ahead and call it a season. I would possibly have run them one more night. With the rain and snow forecast for here I would expect slow enough activity it's not worth the effort to pull them before work in the morning.
Another good adventure this winter. Not nearly the carnage of last year , but will hopefully hold nest predator numbers down and we will have another good turkey hatch year in 2018.
I've caught 4 coyotes, 4 coons and 6 possums this week and I'm headed out now to run traps so hopefully I'll have some more.
Good job Henry.
Another big boar coon, 3 possum, 3 coyotes, 9 coons, 1 Armadillo, 2 squirrels.
One possum, one coon and had a coyote in a cr but he pulled the stake and was gone before U got there.
I finish everything... last year I sold to groeny but am shipping to nafa this year in march... my local buyer doesn't want to look at a coon as he is already sitting on thousands.......
I pulled all my DP's this morning.
Caught two more coyotes this morning. I will keep my CR's and three live traps I have set for cats out until Wednesday.
First I ever heard of someone catching a diller.
Not a trapper but yes, first I've heard.
@Steelman what kind of set did you catch that armadillo on?
A walk through set for a coyote, imagine my surprise when I walked up on that one. MB-550
Caught 5 more coyotes today but one of them chewed the cable in half so only 4 of them got to ride home in the truck with me.
