Been a long time coming, tomorrow setting 2 baits hopefully. This last big storm should put the grizz to bed I'm hoping . I had 3 big baits last year and gave up one if them this year because of bears . The other 2 I can see from the top of the river bank and twll if they were ok to enter
This third one was a walk in that wasnt visible til you were in it ...I caught 20 coyotes there last year ,lost 1 to an eagle ,9 had mange and left with 10 mediocre dogs for an extra 40 mile round trip .. not worth the effort and expense. I will ask for permission to come and call the area once in awhile .
You may think what's the worry about bears in dead of winter..blacks no problem .. grizz are a different beast ..
I've seen tracks in December thru February while pred calling, some of the big boars never truly hibernate and can come out for a stroll anytime ...I'm carrying an air horn on a pressure can this year while snaring and hope I never need it . Pepper spray is great as long as the wind is in your favor, if not ?? Well at least you will be a seasoned meal .
Will take some pics as I go and hope you will follow along , last year is gonna be hard to beat 1f380266de629e9dd7aec3e9285f735c.jpg

You're bang on about the grizz., I use to go an hour early to get set up out at the farm, after cutting tracks I've changed my ways, tough to get away with no trees.

Yup, at least I hope to see if anything is at the site .. coyotes rarely get it all cleaned up so if it is I know I've had unwanted company .

Got my seat ready for the show.  Don't kill yourself trying to set another milestone.  Everyone only has one best year.

Never kick a dead coyote, especially one that ain't dead when your gun is still in the kitchen. Just ask your favorite Yooper what will happen. But if its a bobcat in a 330 coni and you think he's dead,,,,,Think again.. And we know you were wearing less than your PJ's on the last one you shot !

                                                       

                                                         

20 years ago we had Johnny Cash, Bob Hope and Steve Jobs. Now we have no Cash, no Hope and no Jobs. Please God, don't take Kevin Bacon !

A couple things Cam,

1.) Did you cut yourself ? How many stitches ?

2.) Never tell anyone you ate a tube steak, those two words have a very differnt meaning to some.

Got out and set 9 at one bait and 17 at the other . Not alot of sign but enough to set on . I put the others in past known travel locations
2 bags of deer scraps and bones at one and a road kill button buck at the other . I wore a set of heavy rain pants today to keep dry and I think it may help with scent control...heres a couple sets from today . I wont be real surprised if I draw a blank on first check Wednesday ,but am hopeful . Idk know I will have more trails to set tho and if they clean up the bait it will be perfect cause I know they will be back .
One big concern this year is the hi number of eagles around , them and ravens are bad news on caught dogs.
Tomorrow I will help my son Jordan set one of his baits ,gonna need his big quad to get in .b0dd75aec155a41c932197a9aaf06cd0.jpg35ca6184727397e84e8dcd4c702d5bec.jpg1b61a8d11885d174e5965d6c59950484.jpg

First check this morning and wouldn't you know it ,I forgot my camera ..first of the year stone cold dead and no catch photo..very disturbance so reset was easy . Golden eagle on the bones and bait pile ,hope he minds his manners . A few tracks into the bait but just random ,no trails to set so.may have to move a little downstream . Rebaited with a fresh road killed bambi.
Second site I had a porcupine, should make the rancher happy .. a couple snares knocked down by deer but that all . Set another 6 snares on past catch spots .
Wind has changed to the north and temp dropping fast after a beautiful warm day so hopeful for skiff of snow . Check Jordan's tomorrow. Also picked up another piece of ground to snare so best check it out as well .eb8f3cfabff192a6be2790f4f95b91fa.jpg07c0725da281f6b291eea5e1fd63bab6.jpg7951bb6a5cd887094ee4157a72a9f8f7.jpg
