    Beautiful animals! All three on my hit list this year What kind of sets did you get the otter in? I grew up trapping ID and WA, the running water never got solid down there. Still trying to figure out how to catch them when it freezes up. Congrats again!

    I shot the otters, they weren't caught in a trap. I will take them how I can get them. I also haven't totally figured out how to trap otters very well yet. I do like shooting them though, its more exciting.

    How do you fasten that flower pot set to the tree? How do you fasten the trap to the pot?

    Yeah I am out in the sound.

    I nail the flowerpot to the tree with the head of the nail sticking out so I can remove it later. The trap is held in place by the flowerpot, there is a groove on the inside that the jaws fit in inside.

    Nice start either way. I have not had any luck yet a few rabbits and a few squirrels so far but this is a learning year for me i guess, it has been many years since i trapped last and that was in NM. Lure has been an issure for me do to the cold so far and the heavey traffic from the area over the years. Its still nice to hear someone is getting somewhere on there lines.

    Congrats on the catches, and thanks for the pics. Looks like you had some pretty good winds based on all the spruce needles in the snow. Hard to tell from pic, but are wolverine smaller down your way than here in the interior? That looks like a fat one.

    Kinda funny to see deer legs in the one pic.

    The wolverine is a pretty big female. I haven't weighed it yet but it is above average for this area. I spotted the deer on the beach while I was checking traps and I was able to put the stalk on it.

    That looks like on well fed lynx. Nice work. I'd be curious to know what weight that lynx was if you get the chance to put it on the scale.

    Default Rumble from the Jungle

    HI folks my name is Collin Guy Duncan and I am Born and bread in Africa I grew up Hunting and fishing in the bush veld region of South Africa.

    I have recently Joined this forum as I am fascinated by trapping and its legacy and you guys seem to be top of your game In my country we have vast numbers of Vermin and other Trappable game however it is not practiced
    on any significant scale whatsoever...a pity as we have a huge under utilized resource.

    Most of our hunting is walk and stalk and we are fortunate to have large populations of huntable game
    and it is rare indeed to go on a hunt and return empty handed' as it is warm to hot year round with July being our coldest month (15 to 25 degrees Celsius) the climate is perfectly comfortable to hunt in.

    Why the interest in trapping Captain Jungleman ,you may be asking ,well I hope to visit your country and experience
    living off the land,for a bit however It looks real cold and the skills and knowledge needed I do not have, hence the interest in what you guys are actiualy up to....thanks for your pics Lads ..Warmest Greetings from me Collin Guy Duncan(Im on Facebook)
