I got very busy with work this week and didn't have time to do much more than check my traps in the morning. I wanted to pull everything Wed due to rain and impending fridgid temps coming Thurs. Had something come up with work and couldn't take off as planned. I went to check (and pull) two canine sets yesterday to find that they are under 6ft of water! This may sound dumb but I didn't see that coming even though they are on the edge of a lake that gets partially drained in winter for flood control. I just REALLY hope that they are still there when the water receeds.

Last night I wake up at 3:30 to feed our 4month old her nighttime bottle. I look out the windows, as I always do while the bottle is heating up, to see what I can see on our property and...there are two coyotes running across the front yard. I watch them cross the lane, go up the side of our property and about 30 yards from where I found coyote tracks last week. I have two sets in the back at their stall points coming out of the field behind my property. Hopefully I have time to remake my line, or most of it, tomorrow morning. I may have to set my yard a litte harder too lol!

It's amazing isn't it? I set all over the wood and I have fox and coyote tracks right in my back hard at our chicken coop. I'd like to set there but fear catching neighborhood dogs or cats. Maybe rubber jaw traps might work good.
