checkn traps

Hey fellas, I set out my first trap this afternoon. I have a bunch of critters around the house and thought why not. I used some cat food from the hose with a dirt hole set up. Plus I got some bobcat lure and put it where I want him to put his nose. Now that the trap is set, how long do I give it before I check it? Thanks.

Dug a hole under a rock right off our main four wheeler trail. Threw two boneless pork ribs out of my dad freezer in the hole. Offset my foot trap about 8 inches in front of the hole. It was my first night to have my traps out. Got real lucky, haven't caught anything else. I will sure keep trying. Pretty new to this but I'm hooked now.

PERFECT set! Congrats on the Cat, I'm sure it wont be your last! Once you get bit by the steel bug, its all downhill from there!:wink:

Congrats. Caught my first bobcat this winter as well. Caught him in a snare on a varmint trail. Had seen some cat tracks around and just got lucky I guess. We are going to have a trapping article in the fall issue of the Arkansas Bear and Buck Journal.
