Trapping after deer season

Is anyone putting anymore k9 sets out later? Have a few out and I'm having 0 luck. I believe it's with all the food in the woods right now, lost deer, gut piles etc. when will it pick back up?

Re: Trapping after deer season

i got a MONSTER possum the first saturday of the rifle season. neighbor also accidently hit one of my traps with his truck lol so im debating if it was worth it to leave em out or not XD

The early bird gets the worm but the second mouse gets the cheese.

Re: Trapping after deer season

I've let mine soak through deer season with out pulling; I only caught a few grinners during that time & a red fox toe. Managed a nice 20lb Sow coon yesterday in a dirt hole. Found a nice red accompanying a cute grinner today in a double dirt hole set & a wonderful skunk a few hundred yards away.

Sounds like somebody didnt do all that much deer hunting then! haha even as i was skinning my possum i heard a drive comin through had to stop throw my orange on and get back out.

Re: Trapping after deer season

i snap mine off during rifle, then slowly start bringing them back to life. they have full bellies right now, so no big rush to get them working, especially with this warm weather keeping available food all of and the scent for them to find it.

Rollin - correct, no hunting for me. My traps were all in the fields so I was able to check them from a distance and keep out of the woods. That keeps the hunters happy.

I'll be taking the smoke pole for a walk in a couple weeks here though
