got my metal out about a month ago and they were abused from last season to say the leastlol......



took turns soaking what i have built up and was using in 3 gallons of distilled vinegar and got them back to normal with some manhandling and a wire brush........



then set the turkey cooker to fire and it was on....soaked everything several times as i would do them one night leave them it would rain and get some more rust dust working to get the dye to cling.....



they came out like a dream after a few soakings and we had BLACKOUT........ thumbup











after that i dipped them all twice in FULL METAL JACKET and they a ready to DO BINESS......GET READY......PERIOD!!!!!!! thumbup1

dropped three sets in across the lake yesterday for some quick and easy lets get started trapping before i left to go calling.....two flat sets and one walk thru set......ALL THREE were trampled this morning when i got back from calling....i think i best learn to set a trap again without a pan cover as they tapped danced on all three sets like it was a FULL BLOWN PARTY.....hahahahahha......two of the three had the slightest bit of sand under them and i have the triggers so close to get above pad catches they just didnt fire...so careless didnt pay off this time....lesson learned.......

1st walk thru set trampled and the bait stick dug up...hahahha.



kick back with some SUPER SCAT about 10 feet south of the above walk thru set......




third set remade after the catch....






you can see in the pic his front paw on the top leg was caught above the pad......with the #2 Bridger double laminated top and bottom and the stock jaws edges softened up they leave a mark but dont cut the animal...his foot was not broke either...





i am right next to a mining operation and a landfill and i can barely hear myself with the belts and conveyors running but i kept hearing a dog barking and howling and thought u r just back from calling all night u got COYOTE FEVER settle down your just tired.....well it kept on and kept on some more and finally i pinpoint and can hear the caught coyotes partner standing over in this tree line and barking and howling for a solid hour while i adjust the triggers a bit so NO MORE TRAMPLING and remade all three sets...



i also put in another yote set behind the tree line at the base of the hill.....BINESS!!!!!





should have had a DOUBLE first day but BLEW IT........try try again...........WATCH!!!!!!!!!! thumbup1

Looks good! I have set another trap around 8-10" back from the first trap when I had a digger. I think they have a habit of moving around the set, just like they come in circling.

Yeah, that's no good. An Opossum will ruin a fox set. I always boiled my traps and stopped using the set where the Opossum was caught. It's funny, but catching a skunk in a fox set actually can help. You can even stick the skunk tail in the dirt hole.
