snow and frozen ground dog sets

Recommended Posts

Does anyone have pics of how to set in snow and/or frozen ground? I have a spot that coyotes and fox have been beeing spotted frequently for the last 2 or 3 weeks.

There has to be people that are still trapping dogs out there.

I havn't been on in a while, fighting open water, then 4 feet of powder snow and overflow. I am pulling my set and calling it a tough season this year. How much snow do you have? i have some good sets for deep snow.

Well right now we have lost a lot of snow. In the fields, the hills are showing black dirt, but there are still areas with over a foot of snow where it isn't exposed to as much sun. I have considered snaring, but the area that I have in mine I haven't found much for consistent trails that. They are frequenting a pig gut pile that is on the corner of a field. There are 2 sloughs nearby with very scarce, patchy cattails and 2 tree lines, one running N&S and one running E&W. They do have trails along the fence lines, but I don't know if they are constricted enough to get them to walk through the snare, but I don't have much experience with dogs or snares for that matter. Most of the critters I trap are coons, beavers, and mink.

I would start simple and put a few snares if you have any along the fence line and you might be surprised. Just a thought

One thing to consider is if your going to snare on a fence crossing is what value do you want to get out of the pelt? If you anchor the snare right near the fence the yote can rub up against it and will wreck some of the fur.

One thing i would suggest is to put your snare on a drowner cable like you would for beaver. This way when the yote gets caught it will take the snare down the drowner wire to the anchor which is away from the fence. Works really well and i have done it with fox alot.

      Hey Joshua, May be post back in the morning when the owner of this site is awake and see if he likes the Free bait, buy later your selling. May be you can work out the sponsor-vendor deal with him.  I'll have to say posting late at night when site owners and most of the Mods are asleep is a good way to get some site and product views in before it's deleted. Good luck with the sales!

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
