  1. I sat opening weekend. Not a lot of shots and very little movement. Rubs are just starting to show up in my area. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. For me I don’t trap for the money. With coon, I usually trap a few then use them for my Trapper Ed classes. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. In very general terms: Furbearer’s trapped in foothold traps are dispatched usually by a .22. Body gripping traps kill the Furbearer. To properly process a Furbearer they are fleshed which is removing fat and sometimes membranes from the skin. Then they are dried on a board or wire. Once dry they can be sold to a fur buyer or tanned by a tannery. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Me too. Had a nice pond in Sterling Forest but I’m letting it recoup what I took. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I had five out for a couple of days. I use the marshmallows and fish oil for a trailing scent. I pulled them with last weekends rain. Hitting some beavers on Thursday. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. I’m giving a European Mount a try. I boiled the skull to remove the meat. That went good. Looking for suggestions on the next two steps. 1) To degrease the left over remnants can I use dish soap bringing it to a soft boil? 2) To whiten the skull. Any recommended bleaching product or method. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Yes. It’s currently drying on the board. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Haven’t done much trapping this year but I put out some DP’s. Got this one before the round of tropical rains came through. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I stress looking for good bull frog spots. How accessible from an access point is this pond. I don’t know this area very well. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Ok. Found it. Thanks. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Is there a Category for Trapping? I couldn't see one and thought there was one under Small Game.
  12. With the Fisher season closing on the 10th. The permit needs to be returned to your local DEC office by Dec 20th. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. From what I saw. You can only hunt small game before Nov. 1 in areas North of 17A and East of Doris Duke. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. Thanks for the update. I hunt that property and I couldn’t make it this past weekend. Be up Friday. Hope the 2nd rut kicks in.
  15. This article is haunting me. Everywhere I go online I see it. Lol. Such BS.
