People get offended at nothing at all. So, speak your mind and be unapologetic.

Does temperature effect onset of primeness? Not really, Primeness is brought on by the amount of sunlight, so shorter days  are what brings prime fur. Cloudy weather  and the subsequent lack of sunlight can advance the onset of primeness by up to 10 days. Conversely bright sunny weather can delay it.
Nothing s fully prime on Nov 1 but than again we can't harvest everything on that one day a year when everything is at maximum primness but has not started to deteriorate so it will always be a judgment call on the part of the trapper.
Good luck out there. I'm waiting until Thanksgiving.

I would wait, always do for kitties until Christmas when I was purely calling.... buttttt I got 3 camtrip cages Iíve been staring at since September and itís been snowy since September where Iíve seen a cat a couple times. So Iím gonna go set some traps on Sunday and hopefully get my first ever trapped cat! Unfortunately I donít have anything to trap beaver but I found a few good spots with new sign daily. Might go buy a trap to get some bait
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Amen
