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.

    • i think you have to put it over the limb and shimmy to the trunk by looping it through itself with  the help of the pole. but your right scoot I am confused too. I normally attch my to the trunk.
    • If the economy heats up, it gets down to a choice between rampant inflation or high interest rates.  The solution for the inflation of the 1970s  was to jack interest rates up into the teens.     What would interest payments be on $20+ trillion at 8 or 10 percent?  Or 12 or 14 percent?          
    • Which will lead to hyperinflation.   What will that look like? Well, we can try to print money like Del suggests but the evidence is that printing more money can actually make more problems.   http://www.foxnews.com/world/2017/01/18/hyperinflation-renders-venezuela-nation-broke-millionaires.html    
    • Since Bulleit was mentioned so much, I thought I'd check for it tonight when I went to get my standards.  With all the positive reviews I went to scanning the top shelf right away.  I didn't find it till I got a little lower.  I can say I was a little surprised to see it priced at $24.   What is it that everyone likes about it?  I'm curious now.  I wasn't curious enough to add it to the tab though.   By the way, Johnnie Walker Platinum and Blue Label took top honors in the price category at $99 and $209 per bottle respectively.
    • Debt to GDP at the current levels is not much of a problem if you assume interest rates will remain low and static, but there is no reason to believe they will, considering they are presently considerably lower than average historical levels.   You fail to account for any rise in interest rates in your calculations, and that is the primary reason 100 percent debt to GDP is not prudent financial policy.    
    • T   Me too.  They get the papers all soggy and hard to light.
