CR's

Canines are running with this cold snap, pairing up & breeding season.

Anyone having success with Cable Restraints?

Yes, couple fox and a couple coyotes so far. And a couple chew outs from from coyotes as we discussed on another site. I put another couple dozen out today. I love seeing the tracks in the snow, and seeing where else I need to set cables. Its a chess game. I just got done setting one farm where I unloaded 18 cables in 200 yards along a hedgerow between fields. I've done cables enough to know that if its a viable game trail, theres no sense not setting it because that will be the one the canines take if you don't set it.

Right now, We are having our first snow on the ground since Nov.
About an inch now and seems to be stopping soon.
Red Fox track came up the driveway and around the side of our house...I saw track before sunup, when I walked down for our newspaper.

CR's- Sometimes with snow cover and/or full moon, I don't have constant success as on bare ground.
I think cable and support is less visible on bare ground.
Your thoughts?

Sort of off topic but do you have to have a special license for snares or is that just cable restraints? I'm a dummy for not knowing this but since they started to SELL they game book we only get one. That one got worn apart and eaten by the dog. Their website stinks IMO.

Because of the deer herd dropping off, the trails through high grass and such vegetation are not defined as well anymore..we've lost that helper. Then with the heavy wet snow we had early on, it flattened a lot of what you look for to hide a cable in. The canines run wherever they want. That happens every year, but it hit us right from the start. Tough year for CRing.

I use Freedom Brand supports from F&T Trading Post.

The season has been a bit slow but I've managed to cable seven yotes so far.

This snow tonight and tomorrow will make it easier to cable more yotes.

I do much better when we have a snow covered ground.

#9 wire fits nicely into the collars on the cables from the Dakota Line. Its the quickest and easiest support system, in my opinion.
