Wow Yaz,, way 2 go,, i like that pic of the lone female beside the fence post!
I dont think you`ll ever run out of yotes to catch but you may make them think twice for awhile coming around your area!

I really thought I'd catch 5 or 6 and that would be it. I never dreamed there were that many around. What is unusual, I have seen very few this year. I normally see one or two a week out feeding, etc. No wonder we have very few deer, foxes, and small game around......

Well.....its been two weeks since I've caught one. There is a pair still running around, but they have not caused us any trouble. They will NOT go through a snare. One of them is a smart one, and has been digging and uncovering my traps. Might be because one got their toes pinched earlier in the week! :mrgreen: I'll give myself the rest of this week, and if I can't catch them, Ill let them be....as long as they stay out of the cattle.

Here is a picture of thier "handy work". Almost surgical the way they dug it up without throwing the trap. Reminds me of an 'ole Wiley red.
BTW- Notice the "deposit" she left me to the lower left hand side of the trap. If it wasn't for that, I'd pulled my trap and just let them go......its personal now!!!!!! :rotf

Yaz,
Thats a site i have seen b4, :( sometimes its best to just let them win,, but a second trap well concealed behind the first trap mite fool him! leave a little of the original trap exposed to catch his attention and you mite catch him off gaurd! :nana
GOOD LUCK!

You HAVE been down this road before, haven't ya? :mrgreen: Thats exactly what i did. We'll see if it works.....I don't have much faith. Once you have one knowing you are after them....they are a different critter.

Well.....Today was the day i picked to pull all my traps, and snares. To my surprise, I pulled out in the field and seen a "lump" where my set was and got a big 'ole grin on my face.. I had not been on this set to do anything, including putting in bait, scent, or urine since I made it Feb 26. I did not want to risk them smelling or suspecting anything. I don't know for sure it was the "digger", but by the tracks after she got caught, indicated she came in from the back side, and got caught by the second trap by the hind foot. She did step in the trap she kept uncovering also. A GOOD way to end it.
