Re: setting CRs? snow?
To me it seems your over thinking this to much!?
Just get out there and Set on Trails...
My First year, Took the Course, listened to what Ralph Wagner and Mike Spittle told us in the Class. I then went to a guy I know who sets 100s of CRs each year and talked to him...he told me exactly what Ralph and Mike had told us in the class...
I went and walked my 2 Buddies Farms....set on every deer trail I knew was in there... 1 farm, 250 acres, 17 red fox in 1.5 weeks, other farm, 70 acres, 14 red fox in 3 weeks!
All I set was the Deer trails...
Today was the first I could get out to set my CRs...had a buddy tell me about many coyotes and fox he was seeing on a certain property I could get in on...when I walked in, I started looking for nothing but Deer Trails..found 1 and started setting it where it lead in from the field into the woods...about 200 yards in, I found where someone put a RKD and the fox and coyotes were ripping it up pretty good..I set all the trails in around that thing with in 100 yards of it..found plenty of fox tracks and a few coyote tracks...I happened to walk down about 300 yards below that RKD and found where the fox (tracks) were going from the woods to the field and crossing a creek on a Deer Trail...I set CRs on both sides of the creek and on a little dirt mound that was in the middle of the creek plus right at the fields edge..
Don't Over think it, it is supposed to be easy, just find trails and start setting!
