It has been such a problem with shipping them this year I pulled my sets. I have caught something around the mid forties. I might put some more sets out. I'm missing trapping them. No big days on them this year. This was probably my high point.

Good to see them making a comeback.  I used to see them along the Tanawax Creek in Pierce County in the 70's. There was a blowdown of cedars in the gulch left over by the Columbus Day Storm that was a real nest of porcupines. Those hollow cedars made great winter habitat for them, and the fishers were fond of porcupines.
You'll never get Bigun's if you keep shooting Littleun's.

Last year spotted one about a mile from there between tanawax and ohop, they are still in the area. No porky's around that I have seen though, wish there was they are some tasty!
