Re: hay set- how to make

I don't really want to stop for fox, but if they are not going to come in, then I'll target what will come in!

If it keeps up with no fox and just coon, my Trappers Coat is gonna look really funny with 1 gray and a bunch of Coons stitched to it!

Re: hay set- how to make

Don't you guys get discouraged yet. We've had horrible weather for trapping, so that's not helping. Especially since there hasn't been any harvest. Once things dry up a little and the farmers start cutting corn again. fox will start to disperse from family groups and things will pick up! Stay the course.

Oh, yeah, you just need one of those cold nights with a sprinkling of snow and those fox go nuts for sets that have been there all along.

Re: hay set- how to make

nothing this morningat all. but at least no grinners to mess things up. the hay set we made had the hay blown or thrown away at the center. pretty high winds though.

Now your diggin' where the 'tators are!

Re: hay set- how to make

The wind has died down my way,assuming it has for you too, so you can try again. Yeah wind is the biggest problem working with hay. But it was only the worst winds last year that gave me problems, the normal winter winds and gusts were ok.

Re: hay set- how to make

Sorry I have a question:
I was thinking of putting one out but I have pheasnat grass and fox tail growing in the field I want to put one. My question is I am guessing that the hay on green grass, snow or mud is eye appeal, would this set work in an over grown field where the grass is the sam color as the straw or hay?

Re: hay set- how to make

Does it matter if I use Hay or Straw?
Also are they effective in areas which are not farmed? I was thinking about setting a few at our cabin in Lycoming county, but the area is mostly wooded with a few fields that are not mowed.
Thanks for the great info.
