    Default What to do with fox carcasses...

    when you trap them? Do you boil them up & feed them to the dogs? Or trash them?

    BAIT... Put all of them in a pail out in the woods and make a bait station.

    Echo swapdonkey's comments. I haul all my carcasses to one location ("The Boneyard") and then use it as a snaring location. Just don't set too close to the bait pile, or you are liable to pick up birds (Ravens and Eagles). I normally back off about 50 - 100 yards and set snares in a circle around the area to catch animals circling the bait checking the wind. Once they establish trails to the bait pile, set those up as well (remembering to keep the distance). Good luck!

    Two options. One is a bait pile.

    The other...a group scene:


    This year's group scene will be them frozen into "active" positions, and made into a dog team. I'll put up a sign that says "I'd rather go n aked than wear fur."
    Know guns. Know peace. Know safety.

    No guns: no peace. No safety!

    I believe a true subsistence hunter/trapper would be having them for dinner, Go!!
    If that isn't palatable................I'd go with the bait pile idea. Maybe across the river at the edge of the brush/willows. Snares set in the willows and a pair of binocs by the front window.
    Can you cross the river yet?
    I can't help being a lazy, dumb, weekend warrior.......I have a JOB!
    I have less friends now!!
