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.

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?

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.
    • +1 on striker ice love mine    
    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
    • I go to Petty Bro's in Annandale and have with about the last 8-9 Deer. They usually get it back in about 3 weeks.
