Re: Bobcat trapping advice
Trappin4reds it was A blind set using Asa lennon's snow spoon that I built myself. I had plenty of sets out using everything I could think of, Cubbies, walk through cubbies, flatsets and rubsets but a blind walk through set was the tag filling set. After looking back at the whole deal it seems I was over thinking the process. See a track in the snow and it's a matter of time until that cat comes through that area again. The cat I caught was on a 3 day turn. Trust me I seen a TON of coyote sign and I would of loved to set for them but bobcat was my target and I focussed on that. I was in a area of the ANF where I was on 5 different cats running. This one was the most predictable and she was 20 lbs. I was hoping for another one that I guessed was 40 lbs plus. It's pad was as big as my palm. I just could never put the pinch on him. This year is a new season and my brother say's he's still there, just bigger. I hope to meet this guy this year. I bet he's pushing 50 lbs.
Honesty is my only excuse.
