    Siding

    I thought Tyvek was Alaska's favorite siding, guess I was wrong.

    Where was that picture taken.

      No fair, mud. I seen that 2nd pic before. That is Marty (can't remember his last name) from southern Alberta. He is a TRAPPER, actually a snareman, who goes after coyotes seriously. I know the guy in the photo has a gun, but those are trapped or snared yotes.
      I can't help being a lazy, dumb, weekend warrior.......I have a JOB!
      I have less friends now!!

        I got both of the pics off of www.predatormasters.com and they mentioned that the barn dogs were a combination of trapped/hunted. Someone guessed that there were about 350 covering the barn. Pretty good photos though.

          AKmud,

          Shouldn't this be moved to the trapping forum?

            Which half? The half that we're trapped or the half that we're shot?

              Hey Allen,

              I don't see any blood at all on those animals from gunshot wounds. I've seen these pics before too. I'm pretty sure those coyotes and fox in the first pic were trapped/snared.
              'Twas just a suggestion anyway.

              -27 here this morn. River starting to close up finally. Going through the wood pile.
              Best, Mark

                Mark for Political Correctness purposes the gun shot entrance holes were placed down so as not to offend the sensitive. Any good pelt hunter that shoots fur bearers will use a bullet that does not exit but explodes inside the animal to do minimal pelt damage.

                Glad you have winter up that way. We are still waiting for things to start freezing up here.

                    Kinda my thought too... It was just a pic of some dead predators. Makes me anxious to get out and do some calling (hunting).

                          As I stated before, which of those coyotes and fox in the picture get moved too the trapping forum, the half that were trapped or the half that were shot.

                            I thought I'd let that first suggestion slide, but since people are still talking about this I thought I'd weigh in...

                            I am one who usually moves things to the correct forum. I don't do it because of the "rules", but because people usually get better responses, both in quantity and quality, when they are in the correct forum. This is especially true for firearms questions.

                            So, why didn't I move this one? AKmud is obviously itching to go predator hunting. He hasn't run a trapline before (that I'm aware of), but he loves to hunt the critters. Yes, the pictures he posted may include some animals that were trapped. That is not the point of his post, however, so it seems like talking about it here is fair game. It's no different than posting a picture of a moose that I saw while hiking when we're talking about judging antler width. The topic is hunting, even if the origin of the picture may not be.

                            Awfully early for people to be getting cabin fever....maybe once the lakes freeze over we'll have other things to consume our minds with!

                              If you look close enough at the guy in the top photo you will see a call lanyard around his neck. How many trappers use calls to snare critters.
