losing equipment

What is your furtherest backtrack to get equipment you left behind? I hate those mornings before work and your pressed for time and you get all the way across the field and realize you left it at the last remake.

Re: losing equipment

Only equipment I ever lost was a couple of Conibears when I tipped a canoe in an icy beaver pond. Everything was secured except for those couple of loose coni's.

Eh...wot?

Re: losing equipment

Never had to go to far, but left single shot 22 by a previous remake. Also Hammer and little things that I had to backtrack for.

Re: losing equipment

I never back-tracked. I always picked it up on my next trip.

I trap mink because I don't know any better

Re: losing equipment

I left my 22 I use to dispatch at one farm and had a mink in a set at another farm 13 miles away and when I went for the the gun....... Well you know the story. Needless to say that was a long drive to retrieve it. LOL

Re: losing equipment

Forgot or dropped my Leggets critter getter on last catch this year. Had that thing for 5 years, wife used it when she came with me. Bad part was only 200 yds. BFrom the house , best I can figure I dropped it and a hunter found it.

Re: losing equipment

When I was 16 or 17 me and my cousins were coon hunting and got lost one night. We sat down and tried to figure out where we were and a car went down the road about 1/2 mile away. We then knew where we were and headed right for the road. Got there and I went to grab my dad's .22 from my cousin. Guess what.... He left it where we were sitting. Me and my dad went back the next day with zero hope of figuring out where we were sitting. After a couple of hours he had accepted that he finally had an excuse to get a new .22 and we headed out. Just then I looked aheadand it was leaning against the tree right infront of us. lol. Dad still has the .22, but the rifling is shot out of it. He was happy and disappointed at the same time I think. lol.

Re: losing equipment

I gained permission on several new farms this year as I was trying to extend my line in another direction to make up for low populations of k9s in my area. On the first day I had plans to have 60 sets in. I traveled to the farthest point first thing in the morning with the intent to work my way towards home. As I was putting in the very first set of the day I dug up a rusty catch pole that had been plowed under in a corn field.
