Re: Just got the Package

Here is my logic. Correct me if I am wrong. I will be doing this myself, unfortunately. If I have more than one trap and I catch two bobcats, will have a problem releasing one. Rather take my chances on one trap. Am I wrong thinking this way?

I am new to this. Planning on steam cleaning my chain and trap at the local carwash.

Re: Just got the Package

Multiple, multiple traps. If, and a big if, you happened to catch more than one in a day, it really isn't that big of a deal to release one. You are going to catch more coyotes than cats with that cat lure. Lol. Let alone possum and coon. You never know, you Kay go right out and catch one with just one trap, but I wouldn't bet anything on it, especially during a 3 week season with no experience.

Beware of the man with one trap.

I'm so far behind I think I'm in first place.

Re: Just got the Package

Think of it this way, I have 1 trap. Want a Bobcat. That means I will research, research to make sure I am doing it right. only thing I can't research, due to my work hours is a general area where I might have a good chance to find cats. That is basically all I am asking for. We all started new and fresh. I am 58 yrs old. Retired Army. Just need pointed in the right direction. Will scout the area and accomplish the mission. Thanks to everyone giving me ideas.
