Trapping Adventures with Prune Part II

Thread starter #31
Yesterday was a bust but we did alright today. We had another gray where we had the double earlier in the week and a skinny female cat where we caught the yote. This cat was plenty long but it looked like she has been on a super model diet. Oh and we had her by a single toe.

Seems like we are on an every other day cycle. Nothing yesterday and 2 coons today. The first was a dink so we released it. Man it sure is fun trying to get a catch pole on a coon. If you've never done it, give it a try sometime. Their dang hands are too grabby and once you get the loop past the hands you can't keep the loop around the neck. Just when I thought I had him good Prune stepped on the dp. So then the dang coon wasn't in the trap AND he wasn't actually in the catch pole loop. We were just glad he wasn't in a scrapping mood and just jumped in the creek to swim away.

The second coon was a back foot catch in a foothold. At least it was a nice sized boar, It was also a sandy location so we didn't have a mudball with eyes.

Haha sounds like a ride. Have y’all noticed that fox are pretty relaxed with the catch pole. The one we had practically lowered his head to put the loop around it

Seems like the reds want to run away and the grays are feisty. Hard to get the loop around them because they want to bite it and If they get ahold of it, well there goes another five minutes of fighting to get it back.

Gotcha. I only caught one so far and it was a red. After I got the trap off him, he kept laying there cuz he didn’t understand so I had to yell at him so he’d go back to the woods
