The comment. I buy MB traps for a reason. I went over to a farm to reset (I unset before the holiday due to not a good schedule to check each morning) one of my 550s was run over several times by snowmobiles and the trap was fine. My question is I have 5 sets on about 35 acres and they haven't been checked or resented for over two weeks but each set has fox tracks in the snow and urine on each of the dirt holes. I reset and disturbed a lot of snow and dirt. Will they still work the set?
yeah it shouldnt be a problem. did you put the trap back in the same spot or did you move just the trap alil to accomidate for where the fox walked? it also wouldnt hurt to sift alil snow over your set also just give it a dusting.
Snow machines are a lot easier on traps than wheeled vehicles. I had a couple of # 2 Bridgers run over after Saturday's snow and they were undamaged.
Good news is that canines like to follow snow machine tracks, especially in deeper snow. Could lead them right to your sets. Hopefully they haven't been taken out-of-commission again before the fox get there.
I wouldn't blend for fox. Like Fish nitro mentioned above, that dirt pattern contrasting against the snow is great eye appeal.
