Re: collapsible cubbies

Think they will work? can make one out of sticks and pine boughs. Just thought might be easier and quicker with the collapsible. Might take you up on that.

Re: collapsible cubbies

A big flashy dirthole or trash pile set will take every bobcat that a cubby will take.

Unless you are purposefully trying to discourage red fox and coyotes to your sets, I wouldn't waste any time building cubbys.

Re: collapsible cubbies

Trash Piles are just That, Trash.....Most Farms have a Good Dump on them from years and years of dumping tin cans, old glass jars and bottles and other metal and wood trash. GREAT Places for just about Every Trappable Critter! Trash Piles hold Food to critters, Mice, Rats, Voles, Moles, Rabbits, ect. and the Critters KNOW they will get something to eat out of Trash Piles!


Flashy Dirt Holes to me and how I do them is, rip up a big area where you plan to make your dirt hole, bed trap like you normally would, make a hole so many inches from the trap and place bait and lure, then rip up the area around it in about a 6 foot Circle and make it stick out like a Sore Thumb! You can also use old Bones, Skulls and limbs to make it stick out more!


I've only ever used it for Fox and Coons, but I Bet a Fire Pit Set would work for Bobcats!

Just build a ring of stones in a Circle, build a fire in the middle and let it burn for awhile, when it is out, bed 4 traps at different spots around it and shoot just a little fox pee on a rock here and there!

Re: collapsible cubbies

A trash pile set to me is just piling up a bunch of debris in an area where it will really stand out and draw attention to it. They could be there naturally though. I caught a bobcat on a big pile of brush in the middle of a field that was obviously going to be a bonfire one day. It just happened to be in an area that held cats too, so I set it.

A flashy dirthole is just one that again stands out from the surrounding area. Mound up lots of fresh dirt or scatter it around the area. With cats it's all about eye appeal as they are not afraid to investigate something out of the ordinary. Curiosity kills the cats.

Not in this State you can't.

Bones, skulls, hair, and feathers are illegal to use in this State when they are visible from above. DO NOT scatter them around your set or use them for an attractor.

WHEN Did this come about and WHY is it not listed in the Comic Book?

I and I know of MANY Others who have been using Cattle Skulls & Bones, Jaw Bones, Pig Skulls and Bones all of which are laying near where we make our sets on the Farms we trap for MANY MANY YEARS!

Whats Next?? Old CDs as Attractants not being able to be used?


If we are Not allowed to use Bones and Skulls at a Dirt Hole set as an Attractant, they NEED to Spell those out along with Feathers!!

So, you are going to tell me that If I find a Turkey Kill, Feathers spread all over the field and I take advantage of it by placing either a Dirt Hole set or Scent Post set there at the feathers, even know I did Not put them there, I'd be illegal?

Not many things I disagree with on the Hunting and Trapping Laws, but Seeing you are saying we can not use Skulls or Bones and Feathers, They should SPELL IT ALL OUT!!
