woooooohooooo!!

So the day started like most others...empty set after empty set...2 last farms to check...7 footholds and 1 CR on those farms...I can see the treeline the CR is in from my parking spot at another farm...

I looked across and said "man that looks like a coyote sitting in the treeline where the CR is.." I laughed figuring I was seeing things and went around the block and started driving down the treeline...

Stopped and looked out the window at the natural scent post a yote used 4 days ago in the snow...nothing and trap wasn't fired or anything weird...looked out the drivers side window and 3ft away was a yote in my CR!! I couldn't believe it!

My first CR catch!!

When I seen its tracks in the snow 4 days ago, I hung a CR in its tracks and set a foothold in its tracks at the clump of grass it marked..didn't think either would work but boy it did! The snow melted with the rains and got rid of my tracks and all that...



Small female....I was going to have a full body mount done with her in the CR barking like she did when I got out of the truck...but her hind end is rubbed pretty good...really beat myself up back and forth...her size and the rubbing were the reason I opted not to mount her....

I'm on cloud 9...proved all my buddies that CRs DO work...

I thought I took pics of the set but I must not have....pounded a stick into the ground and ran 11ga wire off of it for the support...2 natural pieces of brush made a perfect location to hang it...and its tracks told me it went through there last time....worked perfect!

Now I'm hooked on CRs...snowing now...maybe I'll get to hang a bunch this weekend!
