I am new to trapping and was wondering if setting traps on rainy days was worthwhile? I am out of dry dirt to sprinkle over traps and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions on what to do? thanks in advance
I like raniny nights. I set before a rain for one reason, too help remove my sent. I use good lures that will last for weeks and the way I set traps they will stay working. After setting traps and a day or two of rain I will start catching fox/yote with out doing anthing to the sets.
Just drove 2 major highways here ...79 and 80 full of fresh fresh roadkills....and its raining...been raining all day..flat sets are fully functional in rain if trapping canines..dp for coon or any other non water set...critters are in full force to night..
..sitting in a tent over decoys ain't turkey hunting...
THanks for the advice guys, going ot set today while there are some breaks in the rain before this evening. Didn't have any pete moss at home to cover traps etc... any tips on fox bait? heard vanilla extract works or honey?
All animals move before a storm and after a storm.If your animal does get muddy just hose it off,dry with a towel and hang in front of a fan for awhile they will dry nice. if you don't have any bait don't worry about it. all you need is a good lure in the hole.
