LOL There are actually two spiders one is visible just under the top broken branch on the right hand tree.  The other pops out at 9 seconds in the video and climbs up to the other one.

I feel your pain, as Bill used to say.  This year I caught NO cats on the West-side (6 cats on the east side) but I had several cats go as far as to actually leave footprints inside the cages. It left me wondering what else I could have done.  I heard from several other trappers that had our same problem at the Rendezvous.  Did anyone use a bait, lure, attractor or other technique that they think got half-committed West-side cats to fully commit this year?

Oh, and I had other set backs, LOL.  For example, a big tree that fell on one of my cages.  I'll have to use a shovel or chainsaw to get this crushed cage back ... or leave it for the archaeologists.

Pretty cool, neighbor.
