Trapping...by Riley








First batch to take to the fur buyer...
8 coons and 3 coyotes.



Combing out blood and dirt.


Second trip to the fur buyer...
15 coons.





This was the worst season in the past 4 years. I was trapping in a promising, new area with plenty of coyote signs, but after a week they disappeared. It took a bunch of gas to run the trapline. I caught plenty of raccoons, but they were selling for only $1 this year. The majority of them were accidental catches in coyote and bobcat sets. Coyotes ranged from $2 to $20. Unfortunately, no big cats!
