What did you catch today?

16 posts in this topic

Ok boys here is the thread. I just got back from running my small fox line this year and i got three more. something about taking pics of fox in snares that are frozen to a tree just does not appeal to me, so i am not doing much with the camera this year, yet anyway.

I also snared a rabbit that was eaten by a lynx when it was in the snare. I found at least 3 different sets of lynx tracks today that i am going to get set tomorrow, of course when i find lynx tracks i don't have my lynx traps or snares along.

I pulled my beaver line yesterday. Caught one more really nice sized, dark fully prime beaver. Started some bait piles out in the woods, getting ready to snare some fox and coyotes.

caught a few more fox yesterday on the line. the bummer part was the lynx came back and did not hit my sets. Maybe when it warms up.

I am FINALLY going to get out to check tonight. If you want to read about the weather we have been having and what the river was like, go to the anchorage daily news and under the sports section look up the "kuskoswim 300" I was on the trail marking crew for the race, we sank 12 snowmachines, luckily not mine.

Going to be a good weekend though, below 0 and got 1.5 feet of snow yesterday.
