Questions about haysets in the snow

When setting haysets in the snow should you shovel out the snow or should you set on top of the snow I have about a foot of snow here

Re: Questions about haysets in the snow

I am still learning but i put the hey right on top of the snow because its a atracter that being said i find that dirt hole sets produce more catches i have not had much luck with hay sets

Re: Questions about haysets in the snow

what ive done where there is snow is stomp and kick the snow out of the hay sets on the snow look like a bomb went off...

i dont worry about completely removing the snow...but i want my traps on the ground...

when i "bed" my traps in a hayset i chip out the sod in a rough bed..again throwing the sod and dirt all over the snow for eye appeal..i then stake the trap..then i line the bed with some fine hay/straw..i dont worry if its not solid..but i dont want it loose and floppy and sliding rough bed holds it fairly well in place..light dusting of hay/straw over the trap finishes it off...

Re: Questions about haysets in the snow

keep it as simple as possible- the terrain is what you need to pay attention to- make it visible- could mean piling up some snow if you couldn't carry in a big armful of hay or could mean kicking out a spot- where you place the traps is most important- not how they are bedded etc- again pay attention to the terrain and how your target will approach- and keep it quiet cause we are supposed to "just say no to haysets"
