Default Who else is ready





Got 200 boxes for my conibear sets out of storage today. finished making my own dog proof traps (10 doz.). Cleaned out the boat, bait is ready and in freezer. Now just waiting. Feels good to be ahead of schedule for once.

Used to go with my Dad as a kid. But never could get into it enough to do it on my own.

i used to trap quite a bit but then damn gas got expensive in the truck to be running back and forth everyday, just couldnt get ahead, i still have alot of traps laying around, maybe invest in a beater truck in the future and start doing it again as my kid gets older.

Thats the main reason I'm doing it. Dain is 12 now. Watching him get pumped up about trapping reminds me of myself at that age. Its kind of nice to have someone helping out.

Hey Bull, any chance you would shoot me a pic or post one up here on how you dog proof them? I'd be curious to learn your technique.

Here ya go Garrett. http://www.trapperman.com/forum/ubbt...al#Post1030897

I'm kind of a tight ass and couldn't see paying what they want for dog proof traps. I found this link a few years back. I try to make a couple doz. every year. You'll screw up the first few but after that they are pretty easy.

The traps are ready just hoping to find some more rats to trap. I told the oldest boy we could invest in a rifle if trapping goes well and now he's all about getting more ground.

If ya hit me up in the spring I could build you some just don't have the time right now, when we build them we usually set up an assembly line.
