My First Catch

Made a few sets this past week, my first year trapping. This guy was waiting for me the other day. I didn't have a catch pole ,purchased one now however, so I returned home for a heavy blanket. Manage to pin him under the blanket and release him unharmed without getting bitten. He ran a short distance and scampered up a tree. I've seen a couple in the last few years. I think we treed two last year while running coyote hounds.
Caught him in a fully modified #2 Bridger at a dirthole set.
