Junior is cleaning up on them and he found some more in the freezer!

Mitch and I went back out tonight and checked the traps and we pulled in another 24 pockets and 2 stripes. We left out 24 traps and we'll check them tomorrow. When he got home he was double checking the tails and he found another 2 bags in the freezer. The new total is 170 pockets and 5 stripes. Hope you guys aren't getting tired of the posts but I think after this week we're going to take a little breather until the next crop gets cut and start getting our stands up for bowhunting and get back to fishing.

mrklean, Mitch took in the gophers today and ended up with 182 pocket gophers and that'll get him $546 dollars. Not bad for a 13 year old in 2 weeks. July 28th he got $209 dollars for his pockets and stripe gophers. So to date thats $755. He can'tdecide if he's getting another rifle for predator hunting or a gun cabinet. He's bought 3 guns since he was 10 with his trapping money. Pretty proud of him.

that is awesome. what does he currently use for predator hunting right now? Not sure if the prices on AR's has dropped much, but he could get into a Olympic Arms K16 for just about what he has right now.

He's been using his TC Encore(one of the rifles he bought) in .223 but is thinking of going to a bolt action for a little extra fire power. I think he'd like a AR as well. Maybe he could let his dad use it. Some of you may have seen these but here's some of his kills.

    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
    • We had no problems but only brought 10 extra gallons over.  We fished 5 days, pretty much running wherever we wanted and ended with 7 gallons remaining in the boat.  So, we burned 30 gallons of fuel in a 1785 Lund with 90 hp Mercury 4 stroke.   I thought that was pretty good!
    • Seems to me that we are missing an entire page from this thread that was here yesterday.... what gives?
