Just curious if you guys set any goals for next year, mine is to pick up more coyotes and get better at it, and catch more cats than this year, become a more efficient cage trapper for cats and last is to have my shop in order to do more put up

I will have a fourwheeler and be able to get out to areas where I could not go this year. I am setting a goal of at least 25 cats but would like and think its very possible to get around 50 cats. Plan on running around 120 traps total with a bunch of snares thrown in. 50 coyotes, a couple of dozen fox also. Going to try to catch my first marten this coming season also.

I will complete my fur shed , Double the amount of steel set in the ground , i will be effective with my preseason scouting , I will expand my understanding of my target animals ... And I will be a positive roll model for Trapping.

I would like to up my number of coyotes to between 50 and 75, get more cats, get more efficient at putting up and processing my fur and mostly get a better understanding of being able to read the country and animal movement/habitat.

I want to find a woman that will cook, clean the house, skin, flesh and stretch fur for me and it would also be nice if she had a good job with benefits that would support both of us.....lol I guess my goals might be a little over the top and not really obtainable….. A man can still have dreams….

kkoch, are you in the Military? If so, thank you for your sacrafice and service to our country. My son did a year in Iraq back in 2005. While you're over there, keep youself safe and be sure to come back in as good a shape or better than what you went over. If you will let me know your address when you get there, I'll send you a care package.

kkoch, do let us know what your apo is and we will send along some goodies. Let us know what you miss and want the most and we will see what we can do to send it over. Our son missed jelly beans, so we sent off to Jelly Belly to order 20lbs of Jelly Belly Beans and asked them to ship them direct to our son in Iraq. The Jelly Belly Co. doubled the order and sent a letter to our son's unit, thanking them for their service, so needless to say, Jelly Belly is getting our support.

It is nice to see that times have changed for the better since the time when a lot of us served in the military. There is a lot more support for troops now, than there was in the 70’s when I served.

Just a tip the rzr is tight in the cockpit and you sit low. Ranger is a better choice. Easy in and out an much more roomy. Got lots of cargo room too.

They do and i did last year. They only alow 10 people a year to trap there and assign certain areas to each of those 10 people. They do have some diffrent regulations than the state does ie. no legholds out of the water, no leg holds bigger than1.5 no land coni bears. stuff like that I didnt do to bad in the first week then i started haveing some people mess with my traps and tell me i couldnt be there or i couldnt use a rifle in a certain area. and you got checked by a game warden about everyday but i will be trying to get another area when i get back when i have more cage traps I would be able to do much better than i did with just a bunch of cages cained to trees or something.

I had trapped in military land before in Alaska and they had some different rules also. Of course back then none of us knew what a live trap was and we had to get assigned areas to trap also. We all set in one big room and used a map and worked out where everyone would be setting lines. Somehow it all worked out and we didn't have many problems with people messing with our traps. With a military game warden wandering around checking you guys, you would think that he or she would do something about the people that are messing with your traps.
