when are you all starting

with a lot of seasons opening in a little over a week,I was wondering when most of you will start setting.I usually start on opening day for yotes/fox.This year, I'll probably wait a little for better fur.Plus, I'll be in Wy when our season opens hunting mule deer.I'll probably slowly get my land line out starting 1st sunday of Nov.I live by all gamelands and public hunting areas and that's where I trap.Limits me to getting my land line over with before bear and deer seasons start due to theft.But then,I'll probably switch over to mink and any muskrat I can find.Just wondering what your all doing,if any different,due to low fur prices.I can't even really run much of a mink line or I'll be losing to much $$.Just be running lines I can check on my way to work and not much out of the way stuff

Typically start on the first day. I never was good enough to trap for money so prices have no effect on my approach. Only people like Kip, and Hern trap for money.

Re: when are you all starting

My driving force was always time. If I had more of it during the work week, my "line" would be much bigger than the 10-15 sets I'm able to run daily. The fun and unexpected keeps me running one every year. Love it, love it. I'll start the first day with canine sets, then pull around deer season. Reset after deer and stop around Xmas to prepare for beaver. I'd like to get a few cables out after that then usually call it a year by the middle or end of January.

I usually start the first day but since I had heart surgery recently it probably won't be until sometime in late November early December, I hope.

and many others!!
I also trap to spend quality time with my boys. The best we ever did was a few years ago. after calculating the time we had and expenses we each made a tad over $3 an hour.
