    Pretty fox. I saw a big grey cross the road into a property I trap last week. Gave me the bug. Gonna try to put a few sets out this weekend.

    I made 6 dirt hole sets yesterday. I had my first successful catch last night, a gray fox. The only problem is the yotes got to him before I did. I am a novice and I've only watched videos to acquire knowledge. I tried a few sets last year but didn't have any luck. I had 3 more thrown today with small amounts of blood and what appeared to be yote fur on them. [​IMG]

    Yotes are opportunistic for sure. Might consider tightening the pan tension on your traps. Should help with fired empty traps.

    I don't know who made it. Some fur company thay makes anything you want from hats to coats.They have an ad in Fur Fish and Game. He had that hat and a beaver hat made for himself. He mailed the hides to them and they mailed the hats back about a year later.

    Set 9 predator sets, 6 coon and 2 mink sets today.....already caught 4 coyotes,1 bobcat and 7 coons off this property a week ago in 2 nights...I pulled traps the day we had that big rain....went in today and almost everyone of my previous hole sets was dug completely out from my bait over a week ago.....so optimistic for the morning!
