On Friday I got the word that I would be laid off for a few weeks so I decided to run a small line. I didn't think I would get a chance to trap this year so I didn't get anything ready this summer. Over the weekend I hurried and got a few dozen traps boiled and waxed and was able to throw a few sets in on Monday. I only have 4 sets out yet so far from all the rain and snow melting and now more rain and snow to come these conditions are hard to work with.
I was fortunate enough to pick up this nice male this morning in a hay set!
Showed no signs of rubbing yet.
I sold him today to the local fur buyer and was very surprised to get $40 "on the carcass" or "in the round" whichever you want to call it.
