Had an ok run today.. Coon are holed up with warm weather. They should move with these fronts comin in. I hope.. Cause I need to get back home..Chase some northern critters.. Sucks the coon market tanked.. Talked to a trusted buyer today, the harvest is already high in some parts, and China is sitting on millions of tanned coon right now. If these furs don't move there will be no intrest in our fresh goods..

It's been slow here to with the weather. Got most of mine pulled in befroe the big weather tommorow, left a few of the cross overs, and coon trails that aren't hard to get to. Got 1 otter, mink, rat, coyote, 15 or so coons, and dozen beavers. It hasn't helped with the rain we got before the season. Well it's time for deer hunting, then hope to snag some otters, fisher and maybe a bobcat. Try for some coons if we don't hit the deepfreeze to.

Good Eye Tedl,

That one is the biggest I have ever caught. It weighed 36# and had alot of fat. I think it got fat on ferral cats as I have caught two big toms in the area.

Should have had my hole line out night. Picked up 2 beaver, an otter, and a coon out of 15 traps. Most sets were crossovers. Seems our beavers are moving where they aren't supposed to be at this time of year. Picked up two in 4 days out of a culvert that has no sign of beaver anywhere was hoping for otters, but take what I can get, only trap out right now, as its an easy check, during deerhunting.

    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
