2 stupid questions

1. When skinning my coon this morning, his tail broke off at the base. I tried to skin it the rest of the way out until I could get my tailstripper on it. Well long story short, I pulled and about 3 inches of the end of the tail ripped off! How badly will this affect the price on him?

2. I have never used many conibears, but I'm gonna get a couple 330's for some beaver spots I found along the river. I found a couple of active entrances to a lodge underwater. How do you use those new conibear stands they have out? I've looked on youtube and don't see any videos on them. I plan to set them outside the 15 foot area.

Re: 2 stupid questions

1. Won't affect the price a bit.

2. Are you talking about the tall stands that have eyes at the top? If so, push the eyes together and wire them. That locks the trap inside the stand. You can then wire from the eyes to an anchor rather than using the chain on the 330. I use a bunch of them and love them. Great for deep runs under a dive pole. I actually wrap a trap tag around the stand, in the eye. for the above-water tag also.

Re: 2 stupid questions

It just looks alot better. A well put up hide will go a long way with your buyer. They tend not to nit pick as much when your fur is put up nice.
