    Very nice!:clap I can water trap, but still haven't figured out the foxes and yotes on land.

    Two questions for you. Were you using the grizz getters like a dirthole set?

    What is a big coon down by you?

    The lil griz doesn't need a dirt hole or anything. The trap itself is a set. You put bait in the trap. The animal reaches down to get the bait and the coon will feel a trigger in there. Thinking its the food he'll grab it which will catch his foot.

    Big coon in my area of the south is 15 pounds plus. I rarely take coon pictures, but I caught 8 coon out of that one lil griz location and every coon was 15 pounds plus. They all got fat from eating feed out of the landowners fish feeder on his lake.

    Last year on my short break from college I caught 34 fox, 11 coyotes, over 100 coon, 2 bobcats, and a ton of beaver. Put those numbers up in about 3 weeks.

    Coyote numbers are low because I caught tons of these properties in previous years. Now they are covered up in fox.

    Enjoyed the pictures

    I've been a life long trapper and always wanted to trap in the south. I get tired of fighting the ice and snow.

    I guess I was asking if you simply used it to replace a dirt hole set.

    That is a heck of a haul! I am throughly jealous. Wish I had 3 weeks to take off from college!

    I dunno I kinda like the ice, atleast when it comes to water trapping!:D
