Caught another small cat today. Catch and release trapping. I have a bit better access to these areas lately so I am more mindful of managing the harvest.
Ran into a couple hound guys the other day and had a nice BS session with them. Their dogs sure opened up on some LDC lure I made up and am using lately. Hope the cats are equally interested.

Caught two cats today, last years kitten and a female. Decided to turn them both loose. Forgot my camera today so no pictures. Were'd the toms go? :dunno:
Had a cougar pull one trap off a bit and steal the bait. Set a few civit traps at sets where they came in and stole the bait.
I think I am about ready to pull the pin. No bait left anyway and at the rate I am losing sets to bait stealers there won't be much left by the end of the week. Kind of feel like I have caught enough cats for the year anyway. I would like to get to 70 civits though. I have a couple more to go. I did pick one civit today.
That female raked me a little when I was turning her loose. No gratitude. :(
Gave me a wake up call to not be so casual. Hands are scratched up enough as is. :chuckle:
Just like summer out there today. Lot of people out the last few days. Had one of my traps sprung by someone but they didn't take it so I felt pretty good about it.
Things winding down, I'll likely be all done by the rendezvous.

Bruce,
I have a beaver in the freezer if you need some bait.
