I must give a special Thank You to "Bobcat" for teaching me and giving me a lot of trapping pointers!!!

CD,

Congrats to another 3Der. Any dtails like what type of set.....was the trap waxed / dyed. It looks like a woods set were using a urine or call lure?

What kind of mount are you having done?

Basic dirt hole set. #2 traps were dyed and then waxed in Oct.
I used a homemade meat bait down the hole, with a shot of Fox Urine down the hole and touch of Fox Gland Lure on small stick above the hole.
Nothing really special with the set just took me a quite a while to trap a Fox.

As for the Taxidermist Mount, I don't know yet. Looking at photos for some ideas and for who I'm going to take it to, to do the work.
I'm thinking of something up off the my floor and on the wall on a rock or log. maybe with a Red Squirrel in the scene too.
