I'm thinking I've had several closed doors the last few seasons just from stellar jays and gray jays (camp robbers). Got a raven in one trap last year. I would have never figured on catching one of those. He pecked my dad pretty bad when he let him go.  :chuckle:

Looks like I might have some action at a prebait site. Took the last big chunk of meat I have out to hang from the tree and replaced the crappy Tasco camera with a nicer one. I decided to drive around the perimeter of the area and found a lot of cat tracks. Should of taken some pictures but my phone was dead. There were definitely cougar tracks in the area. As well as some smaller tracks. Possibly cougar cubs or a bobcat or both.
It's not the size of the trophy that make's it a trophy.

The rear end on my rig is starting to go out. I don't want to drive it anymore then I have to. The new part is suppose to be here either tomorrow or Monday. Once I get it fixed it's game on.

One thing I haven't run across this year is cougar. I'm sure once the season closes I'll see them weekly again

Well I'm finally back at it. With the limited time I had after work today I was only able to get one set in. But its where I had the prebait working. Hopefully it pays off. Kind of ticked off at my trail camera. I had fresh cat tracks in the snow all around the prebait and no pictures except for when I was setting it. Only thing I can think of was it was to cold for it.

Thanks. Hopefully it does. Always willing to listen to the advice of an experienced cat trapper like you and many others on the forum.

Well haven't had any action in the last couple of days. Got two more sets in this afternoon and tomorrow I'm planning on setting one of my swim through traps for beaver. Getting low on bait so I'm gonna need to replenish my supplies.

Well I pulled all my traps again. Looks like I'm gonna be a busy boy for a little while. So unfortunately I won't have time for running traps, at least till I get all these side jobs taken care of. On a brighter note. I can still live vicariously through all of you. Good luck out there guys and gals.

I never did catch that cat that I had coming in. Have a funny feeling the guys that were out in the area running their hounds for "racoons" may have something to do with that.

Finally done with all the things i had going on. Been way to long since I've run the line. Got two beaver sets in today and planning on setting two more tomorrow. I need to get some cat bait if I'm gonna even try to catch one this year.

I ended up winning one of Bruce's cat traps at the rendezvous this last weekend.  :IBCOOL: The trap I bought in last year's auction did me good so hopefully this new one will as well.
