Like cooncrazy said, im slowly prepping gear...

Made about 3 gallons of waxed dirt yesterday...after "testing" ive decided it is magical and i need to make more...not too bad to make and i have a bunch of bone dry dirt...

Had a dozen traps i nite latched and cleaned up the dogs..gotta tune them yet..

My other 10 are ready for the pot...taking then and the pot to camp tomorrow..will try to get em dyed and waxed this weekend after archery hunts...

Planning to go back to camp the last few days of archery if i havent.killed a buck and will get the rest dyed and maybe run a few canine sets...if not will goto bear camp early and do it...easier to do at camp over the fire..propane gets expensive...setup at camp works great..

Ive treed plenty of coon since the season started...havent killed any yet...couple more weeks yet...

Silver fox = grinner = Oppossum. ;-)

I've got a few sets out in the neighborhood to clean up the coon and grinner population. Only 1 grinner so far.

Got one red the 1st nite only because i saw him in the fields i trap. I went up there and made one dirthole set. 1 trap,1 nite,1 fox! Pulled the trap and told the boys i was done for the year. Not many can say they batted a 1000 trappin!!! Lol! BUT now i'm waiting for stuff to get alittle nicer and trying to shoot a buck with my bow since its prime time and besides, Hurricane Sandy is on the way and i don't need to dig out all my stuff because the ole hag turned everything into muck. Lots of time and everything gets better with age!!!!
