So on Friday the Nevada season is over (other than water animals that nobody is going to trap, given current prices).

So now what are we going to do with ourselves? I need some ideas. I can only poke fun at old Bucks N Bows so long before he's gonna get mad and pound on me.

Ideas?

Maybe we could do some scouting or fishing or rock hunting or exchange ideas for new trapping ideas??? Or we could get some more people together to talk about the rondy???

Ahhhh, now you're getting somewhere.

Fishing, rock hunting and golf all go in the same category for me. Any time spent doing one of those activities would really find me looking for tracks, scat or sign anyway. It gets embarrassing looking for bobcat toilets in the #9 hole sand trap.

Exchanging ideas sounds interesting. Maybe meet for a day at a given spot, bring tools, tricks, tricked out traps, lure, bait, attractors, gear, etc. to share with others. . . . ? I tried to get this done with a well known, expert cat trapper from northern Nevada last year but he was too bashful to come and play. Maybe this year . . . ? 'Course, now that I've actually met the guy and seen his fur, I doubt he will find anything of value in the exchange.  Crying or Very sad

I have been cleaning up my garage, truck, quad, traps... And getting things ready to go for next year. Cutting up some bait for all my prebaiting. I try to be more and more prepared each year. Time to do some camping and fishing with the family here soon so gotta have most these things wrapped up.

Very excited for the Rondy as well.

Maybe we should do a pre trial on the trapper meeting Cameron2. Just you and I to see if my tips are worth sharing?? All jokes aside we should get some ideas for the rondy. What we will need, where to stay, shirts, stickers etc. ?????

I like Lopes idea but keeping them I think we might have issues with that one? Maybe we could dye the fur and make they look like bobcats?????

I LIKE THIS!

I think its a great idea. A pre-Rondy meeting would be real nice to make sure everything comes off without a hitch and we could sort of wrap it into a trapping round table for those that want to come. I like seeing/hearing how the other guys trap and why, what they look for in locations, etc. Lets pick a place and a time and do it.

I got the raffle tickets today. Let me know if you need some and how many.

I too like the pre rondy meeting. We could use all the help we can get. We have at least 1000 raffle tickets to sale. I'm hoping to make some extra money for the trapper's association to help fight the antis that are probably talking about what they are going to do next during the off season. Does anyone have any thoughts on a location?

Somewhere in the middle would be best?? Not sure where that is? I will donate some shirts to the raffle so we can give back to the association.

How about someplace like Tonopah??? Kind of in the middle. In fact, the little settlement of Belmont . . . about 45 minutes from Tonopah, would give us a real trapping setting, provide lots of outdoor camping and stuff like that.

Guys like Joe are probably used to just staying in 5 star hotels so maybe we could re-think that. Just throwing the idea out there.

I would bring some lure and bait and jars so everyone could take home something smelly.

I'm looking at the picture of the raffle tickets and feeling a little left out...Nevada Residents Only...Are you sure no Idaho boys can play?

The "residents only" refers to the gun raffle. We would love to have nonresidents come and play.

Well I have my trail cameras out. Got to use up my old lure somehow. By the time that's gone the bucks will be growing their new antlers. Always fun to watch.

I have never been lucky enough for the gun raffle, so that is fine by me. I know it would definitely be worth the drive down to meet you guys and ask more of my newbie questions.

The idea of meeting in the middle of Nevada sounds great, hope the invite is out to a new trapper. I would love to help sell raffle tickets and will help however I can for he Rondy.

If anyone wants to come up to Elko this summer I got into some 7 pound wipers last summer, I'd love to talk trapping while throwing crank baits.

Nice one NVSAGE, nothing fights better than a wiper for sure!  I'll post some pics of last years catches, hopefully we get some weather to fill the reservoirs back up.

I think wild horse is done for a while.... Sad! But yes after the dam repairs and dry last couple of years south fork still hasn't been able to catch up. Maybe we will have a wet spring.

Nevada Ag:

Hey, we are just making this up as we go along. There isn't any leadership involved here . . . its pure anarchy. Some of the best ideas ever come along without any administrative oversight, and free from bureaucratic baggage. Think of the Boston Tea Party -- Nobody stood around drawing organizational flow charts; they just started huckin' tea in the harbor. Well, we're just going to throw some tea around is all.

I'm sure someone in authority will come along and make sense of it all when we are all done. After all, imagine if someone had said, "Hey, if we all get together late at night, smear black soot on our faces to hide our identity, sneak aboard some British ships and throw their tea in Boston harbor, that will start a big fight and the most powerful nation on earth will be created from the dudes that threw the tea in the harbor!"  Shocked  Shocked 

Lets pick a place and a time, and get together.

My camp trailer is not far from Tonopah and I would be willing to pull it there, it sleeps three or four, and possibly five if Cameron wants to snuggle up to me, lol That sounds like fun.

I spent today cleaning up trapping supplies, organizing traps and putting up my cats from the last week of the season. Felt weird sleeping in and not checking traps this morning.....
