Question for trappers

Recommended Posts

Question. I'm not a trapper, but am going to be doing some coyote hunting this winter. I am going to skin one out(if i get one) to have a coyote pelt on the deer camp wall. I know to scrape it etc, but what do you guys treat the hide with? Thanks

Best advice to you take it right to taxidermist. He will skin it leave feet and claws on it will look cooler. And it needs to be tanned at a tannery. You better know how to flesh it if you do it your way cause if you dont get all the fat of the pelt can't be tanned the hair will slip.

Good Luck...

Hey protrapper. Where are you from? I am assuming by your handle that you trap. I just started trapping this year and the animals are kicking my butt!! If you are close to me, was wondering if you would be willing to take a ride along for a day...need some serious help on this trapping thing. Please get back to me. Thanks.

Lunker, If you just want a deer camp wall hanger, there might be a cheaper way.
Carefully skin it out, right down to the toes and nose. Slit the tail to skin that too.
Scrape all the fat and flesh off the entire hide.
Stretch it out and tack it onto a board frame or plywood panel, flesh side out.
After it dries out hard, start working Neatsfoot oil into the flesh side, work it hard and keep putting it on until its worked through the hide to the hair side.
Had a friend who did this with a buffalo hide and it turned out okay, but it is a whole lot of work. You might want to experiment with a hide that you you don't mind losing before you try it on a good one. Good luck. The last time I skinned a coyote, I decided that I didn't want to do any more. He didn't give up his hide easily.

Actually, I was looking for someone who I could ride with on their line. That way I could actually see proper sets, locations, and how and what type of baits and lures to use for coon and canines. I understand about different types of sets but would like to see somebody that has been trapping for awhile actually doing them. I learn better by seeing then reading. Coon trapping for me has been very frustrating. I have caught one this year as well as 1 possum and 1 rat. Might have to hang it up for coon now that it is going to be getting cold. Still have hopes of getting a fox line set out.

    • This evening I will reset the live trap.   So far my peanut dough blocks from Menards have only been lasting a day or two, thanks to midnight ramblers....   Score so far is two racoons and a possum.   I wonder what morning will bring... if it stops raining.   
    • I fish a big reservoir that goes as deep as 140 I believe and we do a bit of trolling over the deep parts of the lake.  In fact at night you can troll and your graph will be littered with fish in the 20-50ft range starting over 70ft of water but if you go to 60ft depth range your graph will be empty. Once the deep darkness of night falls those same fish will show 30-70ft deep on the graph suspending over 140ft of water.   We seem to mostly catch walleyes out of this group of fish and rarely catch anything else.
    • These feeders are only partially blackbird proof, as they can still poke their heads in and peck at the food a little bit. I don’t use the suet one much, because only downy woodpeckers can fit in there. 
    • This feeder is blackbird proof for the sole purpose that only woodpeckers and nuthatches can eat upside down. I purposely angle it this way so it’s easier for the pileated woodpeckers to hang on.
    • It only takes about 5 Mb/s to stream a HD movie.   I'm guessing you have some sort of interference going on.   Inadequate BW shows up as buffering....   Or the Roku is going bad.   I have had a couple of them do that, including a roku stick.      My money is on roku device being bad.   If you have a chromecast, does that work better?   
    • Milwaukee Fishing Eezy Peezy! By Milwaukee Wisconsin fishing charter Capt. Jim Hirt Lake Michigan Salmon Fishing Report 6/24/2019 Hello all, thank you for reading my reports. Joe, Laura and Jonathan Wolf from Mansfield Texas had fair weather and a multi species catch on a beautiful day on Lake Michigan. I enjoyed the opportunity to fish with them. Join us in Milwaukee! To get my fish reports and how to videos first go to http://www.jimhirt.com By subscribing you will keep ahead of the other anglers. When I post you will get it fast! Action is steady and all species are active. The water is still 50 degrees on top. This has made for easy presentation to fish. As long as this continues anglers will have success don’t miss out. Good weather and lake conditions will fill the cooler in the future. The water is warming up near shore and that area is slow. There are pods of forage from 70 feet and out to 200. The recent changes has brought many Chinooks and Coho in. Most of the fish came from the top to the bottom. Our best presentations are Church Walleye planer boards with 150 and 225 copper running 40 to 65 down and downriggers 80 to 120 feet down. Flasher and Bull Frog flies or 100 foot leads on Reaper magnum spoons on downriggers have been the best producers. Reaper magnum spoons are sold at http://www.badgertackle.com with free shipping. Our best boat speed was 2.0 mph. Wire Divers are producing very well set to #2 with 130 feet of line out. Have a great fishing season. Let's go fishing!!

    • Well, after two and a half hours on the phone with Netgear and Comcast I have no resolution.  Comcast is coming out to the house on Wednesday to see what the problem is.  I am on the 150 mbs plan and I still only get around 30 on a speed test.  Even when I wire directly to the router the performance is the same.  I may upgrade to the Roku Ultra as well.
    • The speeds that you show are enough for streaming, the roku stick is not their best streaming device. I use Roku 3 and used to have your bandwidth with no problem.
