We have a very enjoyable trapping this season! We had about 12 miles of line out which we all had our sets in different places along the lines. So some traps were my son's, Bob, my wife, Jennifer and Chrissy who works for us and of course my sets. Really made for a fun winter to see which of us could catch the most critters! We ended up with a total of 23 marten and 11 fox! We had about 25 traps out over the 12 miles. Well, tally is in and Bob was able to outsmart more critters than us! He picked up 10 martin and 4 fox. I picked up 7 martin and 4 fox, Jen picked up 6 martin and 2 fox. Chrissy picked up a nice fox! Not bad, since she only had 2 sets out! Only 4 of the martin and one of the fox were females, which really surprised me. We will be keeping one fox set out for awhile longer and then I'm going to try to pick up some spring beaver.
We pulled the line last week. Now our attention is turning to predator calling, snow machining, and then spring bear, then fly fishing... then hunting.... then more hunting... fall bear... then the line goes out again! I could do this stuff forever, and plan to! Hope I can find time for the guests! heh heh!
Hope everyone else's season went great!
