Been enjoying the journey. 

Why don't you join f4wm and trap wolves by Priest Lake.  $1,000 bounty each.  I could possibly be helpful if you're interested.

All about time... Iím actually pretty good at wolf trapping too it just requires very specific gear that I donít have have with me in the lower 48. All my wolf gear is at my place in AK.
If you shoot the first one you will never get that true trophy.

A few pics from the weekend of one of the spots I set. I added a smaller box trap 10x12x30 (coon box really) to see if I can get the marten that is taking my bait. I've got gray squirrels in them before so figured its worth a shot... Who knows maybe an over zealous cat will try to get the bait in it  :chuckle:

Up in the NE corner of WA near the Idaho and Canadian boarders. Still in trapping from 12Ē to 4í of snow but itís been in mid 30s so not making for fun conditions.

Iíve always wondered if a cougar would try to go into one of our bobcat boxes. My dad and I were out checking the line today we had this guy stick his nose into one of the boxes last night. I think his foot was 1/2 as wide as the opening on the box  :chuckle: It warmed up last night/today so thereís a little melt in this track but it is a HUGE CAT. Iím a really big guy and the tracks make my hand look small.

Wait 'till you are stumbling around in the dark looking for a trap you know a bear has made off with and all you have is that .22.

Really common to have cougars steal the bait out of my cat cages, ho hum.

That is a monster track though.

I see tracks all the time but this track was huge! Iíve had bears in AK destroy my line. I know we will be checking the line now with more than a 22.

Looking at the WDFW cougar quota's appears 113 could still be open.

The line has been really slow lately with the weather. Moving things around a bit to see if a new area might help. :P
