You ended up in the wrong chicken coop!!

 :chuckle:

Lost three hens this week.  Set up the trail camera to see who were the culprit(s)!  Set up a couple of traps to catch the pair.  Second photo, the door is about to drop.  When the door dropped it scared number 2 away.  Should be back tonight.

I had some possums last year.  I ended up getting one with 40 and catching a couple more.  Nothing since though.  Looks like the trash pandas are pretty cooperative!

I used a little dogfood, a little peanut butter on bread and a sardine.

It didn't, I have been struggling all of last year with two really painful knees.  I have been on a diet since Dec and dropped about 35 pounds so far, which is helping quite a bit.  But I have a bit to go and then hopefully in early summer I get both knees replaced.  I just could not walk very far or for very long without an awful lot of pain.  Really sucked missing the whole trapping season.  This is actually the first and only critter I caught this year.

Yes, Dr said that both knees need to be replaced, but won't do it until I drop some serious weight.  He's worried I would have some bad complications.  For about 4 months last year it was so bad it hurt even when sitting or laying in bed.  But I got both knees ablation (SP?) and it has made it bearable, but that is beginning to wear off and I may have to do it one more time.  Was hoping to not go through that again as it is probably the most painful thing I have experienced.  But it did make things much better.

The second one came back last night but just stood there and stared at the cage trap.  I think I could see him look at the camera and extend his middle finger.  :)

I'll be setting a couple of DPs for him tonight.

That sucks man! Joint pain takes all the fun out of trapping. I had to stop because of a bad knee. Caught one cat before I couldn't take it anymore.

Hope you are able by next year!

Machias, might check out Roger Raglin. He came up with a weight loss plan that is helping lots of folks.  It was free for quite a while as he just wanted help people.  he lost 80 pounds or more with no additional exercise and did not starve himself.  He has a very long running hunting show too.

Sorry to thread jack
May that for which I prepare never come to pass.
