Re: Trap prep don'ts

don't let your old lady find out you used the dishwasher for your steel...

I've always been crazy, but it keeps me from going insane.

Re: Trap prep don'ts

Don't leave your chains hang free on the dishwasher. They can make quite a racket and the wife would hear it. On the other hand, if your wife is out shopping and your traps make all kinds of noises while in the dishwasher, did they ever make a noise in the first place?

Re: Trap prep don'ts

Dont put a set trap in hot wax unless you have it zip tied or wired open unless you want a face full of hot wax. Not that i'd know! LOL

If you plant it, they will come!
