Check #2 photos and remake photos for foothold in snow instruction

11 posts in this topic

Was a nice morning on the line, wish i could have spent all day out but the wife had plans today so i had to be home early. On the way out this morning i came across a nice moose, sorry for the poor photo.

Checked a bunch of sets, and only found a few new sets of lynx tracks, set a few more traps and shot some ptarmigan. In one of my lynx traps i did manage to get an ermine, a nice bonus critter.

Second to last set of the morning to check i had a kitty waiting for me again.

Ok I remade this cubby and took a few photos before the battery on the camera froze. Under the trap is wax paper and because this set is for cats i use alot of guide/stepping sticks, more than i would use with K9's.

Covering the pan is just a kleenex.

Are you using a greenwing? I don't trap but that is really cool.

Are you in Canada or Alaska?

that duck there looks like a widgeon, but i save all my ducks i shoot that i don't pluck. The ones i do pluck i save all the feathers to spread around at a set. THe ones i breast out I freeze in ziplocks to hang as bait.

I am in Alaska. The cool thing about trapping is trappers utilize more parts of the animals than most people do. Most people would breast out a duck and throw the carcass away. Not I. THe carcass has just as much value as the breast meat. The feathers and wings have just as much if not MORE value than the meat as well.

(Side note, nothing is wrong with NOT utilizing anything more than the law requires, I have no problem with someone just taking the breast meat)

I also utilize my carcasses. Takes longer for the mice to chew it up before the target animal gets it. Need to do some ice fishing for some late winter coon bait.

    • 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.
