When you say "guest cabin" are you going to be doing some guiding in the future or do you do some already?

Thanks for the updates.

I've been doing guided trapping trips since they brought out the guided trapping permits. The Yukon is one of the few places in Canada where a none resident can get a license to set traps with a guide. It's actually a great system, I'm not sure why other provinces haven't adopted it.

Probably few on the Fire that read Rutstrum. I met him in my youth and have
most of his books.

Hello all. Wanted to show you guys a couple of the lynx sets I'm using.

The first is a cubby, set with a no 3 soft catch. I don't use any waxed paper or anything over the trap, I just lightly sprinkle snow over the pan. For bait I use a chunk of beaver. This set works good when the lynx are hungry. If there are a lot of snowshoe hare around they will sometimes turn their nose up at the bait.

The second set is a walk through snare set. I simply wall off a section of my snow machine trail that lynx like to walk on and hang a snare in the opening. This set is extremely reliable as it takes advantage of the lynx's travel paterns and doesn't rely on bait. The downside is you have to move and reset every time you use the trail.

YBR, what size cable do you use for the snare? Relaxing or non-relaxing locks? Anchors or drags? Deer stops?

On your snare set, is that pole your drag? Thanks for sharing your adventure and methods.

I like 1/16 cable with a modified camlock for a super fast lock up. Lynx die quick in snares so I will often use a pole style drag like the one in the picture. When snareing wolves and wolverine I always anchor solid. I don't use any type of stops on my snares as I don't have deer in this part of the world. One does have to be careful about catching moose in wolf snares however. I avoid catching them with careful snare placement.

Wow, thanks for sharing with us. I never realized how much a wolverine looked like a mini bear stretched out in the snow. I enjoy chainsaw milling, I collect big chainsaws, this is a fold up table I milled from a big White Pine that went down in a storm. Inlaid the hinges and maid it so it would fold flat to the wall. My buddy puts his bunk under it at night. Thanks again for sharing.

Great thread. Thanks for sharing with us lower 48ers. I'm wondering how high off the snow do you set the bottom of your lynx snare? Thanks.
