This is my second year trapping and so far it's been disastrous. The rain but the brakes on me early and this week it's been cold and I set up a small line of first holes. Just wondering if the fox are still moving in these single digit nights. I have had my line out since Sunday and I am in prime untrapped area and haven't caught a fox yet. I think I need to read a book on trap location also cuz I think everywhere looks good lol. How long should I let my sets sit until I start resenting them
Unless they have a meal stashed or can feed on a kill of some kind they will run every night. The last one I caught was caught on a -12 degree night with 3 in of blowing snow.
Made for a pretty picture too. It had just stopped snowing.
You get out of your dog what you put in to your dog!
cabled three off of one farm yesterday and cabled another one today. Seems to be a lot of sign on these cold nights. I think they travel more and further when it is frigid because they need more food when the weather gets colder and food is a lot harder to come by than in the fall.
Not trying to hijack the thread but Ive had a pretty dry spell lately too. Do you guys use more baits in dirt holes when its this cold out? I was doing good the last few weeks with gland lure and urine, but not gettig any activity except a big boar coon yesterday!
