Right on 17 !!! When one moves or is taken out of a area another moves in. Look at Psb's catches year after year and he traps the same properties and has for 25 plus years. I don't think he releases any back to the wild for "seed" and he still pushes 1,000 reds every season. 1,097 for this season ! I know I don't let them go and don't plan on it.
I can't really tell from the pic if rubbed, but looks like mange on the leg. Looks like there may be some rub at the shoulders, or thinning there. Coon looks good, but it probably has the rub they get on the back of the neck this time of year, just can't see that area in the pic.
hit it right on the head long beard,another one moves in,now catch that female,then catch the next female late in season.there's only so many that can move back in with all the pressure they receive.all those early fox are mostly pups from the year, surplus fox,I've seen it done, taking to many late females from your line.
