ok this has happend 3 times in the past 3 days!
i made some sets for muskrat in a swamp im trapping. I just made feeder hut sets wired to a stick so they jump in and drown..
well it seems a smart fox has figured this out! the past three days, at the exact same set, a fox has dug up the hut and stolen my rats! thats three rats now! im getting really annoyed! and he is smart too! he likes to leave a muskrat foot in my trap and take the rest! well i guess i have no choice but to set for this fox!
my only issue is i dont know how to do it! i would like to make a set right near the hut so i can get this little bugger but i have nothing to stake to because its all ice for 200 yards all around me. has anyone ever tried a system for stakeing leg hold trapps in ice? im thinking mebey in ice screw??
