K9 season so far

Recommended Posts


How has everyones K9 season gone so far?

This is my first season trapping, bought 1 dozen MB 550's and started setting traps on opening morning and have had iron in the ground for 12 nights now anywhere from 3 traps to 11 traps on 4 different farms.

So far I have caught 6 yotes and 2 badgers. I have my eye on a few fox that I will set heavy for tomorrow since I have pulled my coyote sets tonight for the deer season.

Will try to post a few pictures

no one catching any yotes? 3 traps in the ground for coyotes and pulled another one last night, up to seven now. No fox yet but caught a coon in one of my fox sets

Hey walleye, i have caught 5 coyotes so far this year but ended up pulling my traps before the snow hit.. what do you use to keep traps from freezing and continuing your season???I bought some peat moss and will try that and maybe pick up some salt as well..Im thinkin about resetting this weekend with the warmer temps on the way.

I have only caught two fox but haven't had sets out since Halloween do to deer hunting and then snow. Plan on resetting Friday. I heard some good things about wheat hulls. I just bought a bag so we will see how it works

Buy or make yourself some waxed dirt, its really easy and not very expensive to buy, its the only thing that I would use

      Heard some people were out fishing at McKinley Park today.  HotL Bay is still open, so now I think it will be about November 29 before Vermilion ices-over.  I am hoping to make it out December 2.  Looked back at previous forum reports and came up with the ice-over dates below:

      If you think about it. With all the hunters, trappers, guides and people just living off the land up in Canada and Alaska. You have to wonder how many Ski-Doo Skandic's even make it down to the lower 48? I would even bet being so close to the boarder a lot more Arctic cat Bearcat's and Polaris Wide tracks head that way north then down here. Not trying to discourage you but it's kind of the hot time of year for sleds. You may do better picking up a used one at the end of the season this spring or very early next fall.  Good Luck. 😉

      Happy Thanksgiving FM friends! Just remember the 10 person maximum get together. That is unless you are having a funeral for the turkey, then it's 25 people maximum 🤣

      Looks like NOAA national weather has modified their colder than normal winter with December being quite a bit warmer. May be a struggle to get good ice by Christmas especially Southern two thirds of the state. Getting above average snow (as forecasted) will also hamper ice build. Hope they are wrong.

      Cheers to all! Hopefully Christmas celebrations can be a little more encompassing! If not at least we may have enough ice for fishing!

      You 2 ta boot!   Since we have a small audience this year I’m trying my hand at my first smoked brisket to add to the customary turkey.   No real big risk of failure! 😆
