finally got some sets in the ground

Recommended Posts

Finally got a few sets in today, hung a few snares and set a few footholds. Did not get alot of ground covered. Have to start hitting it hard this week. SOFT snow that is 2+ feet deep in many spots is making it tough. snow was more than waste deep in a few spots I went to check out before driving into them, glad i checked first.

Hey leechman lookout, this is going to be the "year of the snowhole" grin.gif

I hope the snow hole works on the main land, like it did on the island. Time will tell. I was going to get out tomorrow and set a new line out, but an over time work detail came along. Can't wait to hear how you did. Good luck!

I have not yet checked my sets today, but it has been freezing rain since last night, I don't have a whole lot of hope. First sets in the ground last night and I had dreams all night of animals in traps, isn't the first set of the year always the best, even if it is freezing rain.

Hey Fishermann, started snowing here about an hour ago. Got about an inch on the ground, 20 feet of visibility. That's more snow than we had in January last year. I may get to try the snow hole too.

newbie question. Stolen as in by person, or stolen as in by yote, wolf or something?

Person stole it. They shot it on sight, appeared as though they used a shotgun, real nice of the. At least they left me the trap.

Hey Fish, look at the bright side. At least you know your snowhole set is going to work at your new place. What did the other one look like? Do you think your going to have trouble with the fur stealer later? Do you think someone is telling you that your in his area? How's the fur look on the one you got?

      Thanks all. FYI I'm located on Frazer Bay on Vermilion. Give a shout out if/when you may be on the water up there. I may give the Pike River Flowage a try tomorrow or Saturday. I'll provide a report if I go. Thanks again.

      @Rick G, it's about the questionable link they left. Either something hard is going to popup. Or someone may end up with a virus. Or both!

      MrPike, you using the 6" or 8" k-drill?

      I sure would like to see your video Curt, but can't seem to get past the error code myself. Hope it was a good one, and always look forward to seeing them..

      Thanks Rick G that will be this springs project one thin spray on the top and bottom should be just right. Seems they all have this issue you’d think they’d do somthing about it.

      I've got a 9 ah battery ordered in addition to my 5 ah batteries.   I'm thinking I should be in better shape.  But with the ice getting pretty thick I'll be switching to my gas auger soon.

      Thanks for the replies I will be getting one today. Poseidon one thing to check is your blade sharpness Last year I thought my drill was getting weak I put new blades on and away I went.  With this open winter they tend to dull faster just an idea. I'm getting about 15 -18 holes per battery in 20 inches of ice also with same set up.

      Teach them up in the way they should go. And they will never part from it! Great video!   Mom probably loved the day off too!
