Cleaning New Traps
Got a quick question. It has been years since I trapped. When I did as a kid, I didn't really know what I was doing anyway. Anyhow, this is my situation. My son wants to do some trapping for fox and coyote, so for Christmas he is getting some new traps. How do you clean off the oil and grease from the new traps? Do I need to bother dye and waxing them this year or since we will only use for a couple months, can I wait and do it after the season. The reason I ask is I know that he will be hounding me like crazy to go set traps on Christmas Day. We were planning on doing just a few haysets since it seems pretty simple to do especially with the cold weather.
Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!
