I was just wondering what your best trapping product other than something homemade was? I would have to say my most recent would be my loring pack basket. It made it alot easier last year carring all my stuff at once in there. Big help on my first big woods trapping attempt in Elk County for bobcat. Thats kinda what got me thinking about this. Gonna get ready to head back to Elk County for bobcat in a few weeks. So basically what else is a good buy out there?
Just got a trappers cap....i dont know how i set for 2 seasons without one...a trappers cap and waxed dirt i feel much more confident in my sets working....before i.was using polyfil under the pan....blasted my thumbs all the time...and dont know how many misses i had due to dirt under the pan etc...
I love my 3-1 ground hog tool as well...hammer to drive my anchor...use the other end to chop beds in tough ground..use the shovel end to punch dirt holes...i use a small garden trowel to dig beds most the time...i dont understand why land trappers use longer handed trowels to dig beds...to each his own...i try to keep gear as small and light as i can.... i need a pack basket or something as im on foot most the time...5 gallon buckets gets rough!
Here's how much I liked my 3-1 groundhog tool LOL:
Usually when a tool does more than 1 thing....it does none of them well. This is no exception. It was awkward and unbalanced in every aspect so I turned it into a dirthole punch that I can whale on with a real hammer.
