2018 Season Picture

2018 trapping was a challenge with the weather being thewettest that I can remember. (Translation: lots of walking, mud, remakes, washing-fur, wax dirt, etc.). I did hit a personal best with 312 red fox in40 checks. I run 40-65 traps mostly dirt-holeand modified-pipe sets with a few hay & flat sets thrown in for fun. The majority of my sets are lured fromJameson Ultra Blend with “Fox Cream” as my primary food lure and “Red Devil” asmy gland lure. I did catch some of raccoons,skunks and opossums with (happily) no coyotes this year. Hopefully 2019 will be a little dryer.

The southeast part of the state is filthy with foxes.
