Getting the line out

14 posts in this topic

Well I figured I would check in with you guys and let you know how things are coming along. Been out one day so far and I have out 12 cubbies so far and a dozen or so snares all for lynx.

Heading out tomorrow to build another dozen cubbies or so, and then on the weekend hoping to double up again so i have close to 48 cubbies built and set by Sunday.

We had a nice meltdown last week and everything turned to ice, now it is very hard to read the sign, lynx are walking right on top of the snow, and the bunnies are not breaking through either. Anyway, I hope to have some pics for you guys tomorrow if everything goes well.

what kind of cubbies are you building? are you just using small logs? Never really looked into getting a lynx, (Kind of a bad thing to catch in MN right now.) Also are you just running snares in trails or do you drop one in front of a cubbie?

there is a snare behind every cubby on a walk around trail. Then the dozen snares i talked about having set are on trails. So really i have two dozen out, but 12 of those are with cubby sets.

Cubbies are just small branches stacked up to form a teepee of sorts, i will take some pics today

Ok i ran the line today and did not get out as many new sets as i wanted, i just ran out of time. But i did connect on one lynx, which is what all my sets are for right now.

I am 6ft tall. I did not weigh it, but it was a female, not a monster by any means.

I'd like to see some pics of a "monster" when you get one. How big do those things get?

Lynx last year sold well, upwards of 400 bucks, this year there is not much interest on the taxi market for some reason, and the prices are going to be down at the auction houses for all fur this year because of the economy.

I am hoping for 150 average on all my cats and i will be happy.

Baby is doing great, 4 months old now, beautiful baby girl. Sure is harder to get away to set and run the line with a little one around.

How is your baby doing picks? How old now?

I hear that I have a 3 yo and 6 mo and only trapped a week this year, but being with the kids is more fun.

When She is 3 I will have a fur parka and boots, mitts and pants so she can join me on the line smile Then thats the best of both worlds.

    • It the particular case of the poor integration of immigrants in Sweden and the EU in general, that information is publicly available and has been for some time, so probably isn't something the Intelligence folks are making a point of.   Likewise, the mainstream media doesn't seem to be making much of it.      On the other hand, we have the reports in the media that the Intelligence folks have allegedly stopped telling Trump stuff.   What are they allegedly not telling him?   Are they deliberately trying to make him fail?          
    • This has probably been beaten to death on here but....after the recent trip to Winnipeg and driving on rough ice all weekend, I'm reconsidering the auger mount on my ATV.  I have one of the Kolpin ones right now that is 2 thinner pieces of metal that stand up off the front rack.  The only way to hold the auger in is with bungees and the metal is thin and wears on the auger at the contact points.   I'm thinking I could work some 2x6's or something into a decent mount for fairly cheap.     Anybody have pics of a homemade one?   Or anybody recommend the Digger mount?  
    • So how did you get the livewell overflow out? We've had some problems with ours & have toyed with the idea of replacing it. We don't really want to tear all the floor up though. 
    •   Yeah., just not the same as Frankie. Try typing in all CAP'S!
    • Not last year but the year before that we had one that followed us all through deer season.  He would hop up on our knee while we were sitting there, and the little bastard would grab my glove and try to run off with it.  He was almost dinner many nights.
    • Saw this topic and the link to Rock Auto. I ordered up left and right headlight assembly's for my 04 Suburban. They fit right in and even included bulbs. $58.00 to the door delivered for the pair. Cannot beat the price and quality looks fine- better than the old dump I replaced.  Now do I replace the daytime running lens assembly's and fog lamps? Ordered on Thursday and delivered on Saturday 2 days early.
    • They have the 20% off sale(some exclusions) going on this week at Gander. Just need the code from the page, though Rogers just uses one at the counter, so I didn't need it. They got more fishing stuff out now, so I loaded up on some Missle Destroyers!
    • I got the TYC Fog light installed last week. Worked good and looks better than the busted out one! I would of done it months ago if I knew it was that cheap and easy to do.
    •     Oh stop it. How was I to know? You'll just get Dell all fluffed up again and we'll turn THIS into another sillytown.
    • There are a few places to stay that are not too far from the lake.  Hamilton House in Winnipeg Beach is good, a lot of guys stay at the Casino on the East side,  there is a new hotel in Selkirk that is pretty nice and has lots of rooms and breakfast.     Nobody plows roads.  We always watch the weather and snow depth before we go.  We have been lucky to only have to bring ATVs with wheels up there.  Eventually we will have to deal with some deep snow though and bring sleds or tracks up.     There are a few guides that run around on the lake.  Lee Nolden and Blackwater Cats are the 2 I know of.  From what I hear they are pretty accomadating and have all the necessary gear.
