I got 10 Fisher traps out in an area we caught them the last two years. Didnt get a chance to get out and scout when there was snow on the ground but I'm still confident. Just wait and see what happens.
Tried to set Sunday , every tree root hole was a pond, going to be a rough season for me.
Yes going to be a rough season for me also. We have some of the toughest trapping conditions to start in NE but this years weather is a killer. Like a second job keeping my sets baited and working. Even my water sets are reaking havoc on me with constant changing water levels. Thursday starts my yearly couple week trapping vac were I can finally get a decent K9 line out instead jumping in convienant places on my way to work. Guess what heavy rain in forecast for Thurs and Friday 😤 so there already goes 2 check days on my line cause I'm not going to set until Sat!!
Never needed hip boots for land trapping b4!! Digging out the cubby boxes and 160's if its gonna keep raining every 3 days!!!. My partner has to cross a little wet area normally for a couple sets but the swamp got some depth to it since all the rain and an underwater limb grabbed his foot-face first into the muck Not a good day!!!
