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.
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.
foxtrapper woman, might i say thank you very much for the very imformative post....wish there were more people out there that would take the time to post like that...... very helpful to us newcomers....
"thanks" foxtrapperwoman very informational and i never heard about that kind of set till now i just got into trapping and i am going to use some of these sets and see if i can get anything with them thanks again for info
I'm willing to die trying to keep them; Are you willing to die trying to take them?
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?
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.
