One finally hit a snare..

9 posts in this topic

I finally got one today! This is my first year of snaring so I thought would experiment with only 6 snares set in and around a slough just north of town. It finally paid off!

Since our local fur buyer is almost done accepting fur, it looks like this may be my one and only fo this year. However, next year...look out as I am planning to step it up a notch! I am already pumped! Anyways, here are a few pics...

Next year I plan to skin the ones I catch. The critters in the back ground are the ones my buddy caught in the last week. Since he doesn't have a good place to skin them, he just drops them off at the fur buyer.

I'm sure you are fine Rost, to everyone please be carefull where you set your snares. We have a guy here that sets snares without permission, and has killed one very good hunting dog, and my cousin had his snared twice in one day while he was hunting Pheasant. If he hadn't been very close to his dog, he would have lost him too. I have no problem wih trapping or snares but a little common sense goes a long way. CJ

I understand your concern CAJ. I can assure you that I have permission and am well aware that I need to set my snares carefully with domestic animals in mind.

Thanks!

Rost Glad to hear you are careful with the snares. The ones set here were out very early in the hunting season. The furs wern't prime yet anyway. The guy that set them thinks it was funny when we asked him about them. He nolonger has the privelage to trap and hunt on a lot of ground after the little confrontation we had with him. He wishes he had been a little more polite with the land owners in the area. CAJ

Well, if I recall correctly, snares are illegal in MN before Dec 1 unless they are set underwater. If you were in MN, maybe call the local CO.

Rost, that is only for the farmland zone not the whole state.

      4-6" of snow this weekend on top of our new ice hopefully the cold snap early next week will keep making ice through it and we don't end up with the slushy mess of last year.

      There is a lot of my fishing friends and captains talking about this new app called fishangler. The app is giving away$$$$ for 2016 cool fish pics. Has anyone heard of it and what do you think?

      I was thinking the same thing.  Given the forecast, it should get locked up sooner rather than later.    Of course, it *was* nice to get out fishing last week in the boat.  First time I can honestly say I've fished the lake in a boat in December.  And if the quality of the fishing last week has anything to say for it, it's going to be another amazing year on the lake. There'll be plenty of fish caught, that's for sure.
