Re: Rain and trapping
When wet weather, find high and drive locations and use post, flat and hay sets. Peat moss is a great cover with a lot of rain, especially if it is cold.
I rarely relure. I do freshen sets up with my 1-shot, pro-mix or some type of urine mix if it's rained daily for a while, especially if they haven't found your set yet. If they know where it is, reluring or baiting isn't a priority. Just look at your set in January and how they did them up to understand. Your lure is there for a while.
Dry furs quickly. A wet fur will pull if it is damp for a length of time. Especially if it is warm. I like a wet fur to be dry within 24 hours with a lot of warm air blowing on it. Usually, I will dry the fur, fur side out, before putting on the stretcher. Then continue with a good air flow until dry. Animal
