Coon. I just didn't have the time to process that day so I let it go. The only freezer space I had would have been in with the food and that move probably would has hastened my divorce...lol

FYI. a catch pole can be deadly for releasing a cat if you don't know what you are doing. Something about the location of their main blood vessels in the neck on the outside of the muscle. If using a noose it works best to get a leg in the loop with the head. 

In our class they suggested carrying a 2x4' plywood "shield" in the truck. V notch on the bottom to go over a leg and they said to have a leather strap on the back to be able to control the plywood during release. 

Kind of like this video

Your video seems way more ethical. I wonder why those texas outfitters use the catch pole on every cat and post videos? Everytime i watch them, the cat flips around and I wonder how the neck doesn't break.

So that's how those V notch boards work. Was trying to figure out how it'd work. Thanks for sharing the video

Just a little suggestion...... you need to have some sort of backing behind the dirt hole. You can clearly see the tracks as it walked behind  your set. Looks like he also took a dump while he was there. If you have access to some wax dirt , it’ll help keep the set operable. If this was a urine post set , the trap wasn’t bedded good enough or it was dirty and the canine started digging it up. Anyway it sure is fun and experience is the best teacher. Hope to see something that you catch before the season ends. Best of luck !

I only have 6 sets out but had to clean them up today after yesterday’s snow. I also had to add some more bait , gland and call lure.      D141E649-1E80-443E-9D9C-6D283B43A82D.thumb.jpeg.62efe3873b1c70cdf384aa2952e19d55.jpeg
