Buckwheat Cover Hulls

i am heading north this coming weekend, and with rain in the forecast just wandering if any one else uses cover hulls, or do you prefer peat moss? How do you guys bed your traps solid without using dirt as the hulls and peat moss don't pack?

Re: Buckwheat Cover Hulls

it is very hard to get a good bed in both moss and hulls. I am still a newbie so I can't offer too much advice. Goodluck though and tight chains.

Re: Buckwheat Cover Hulls

I like 'em, they hold up to rain real well. No, you don't bed a trap in hulls, you bed the trap in dirt, then put hulls over it. If expecting a deep freeze, you can shape the bed to the trap, then toss a handful of hulls under it, just enough to keep it out of contact with the ground before covering. In most cases, a thin layer of dirt or duff over top the hulls will blend things in better and keep them from blowing away.

I generally don't bother with any freeze proofing till around Thanksgiving.The overnite tempature has to get down to aroung twenty five degrees or so before the soil will freeze enough to bother your traps.
