As usual, I'm running late on getting things done. But, If nothing happens, tomorrow I'm gonna work on my traps. Clean, adjust, and wax.... git them suckers ready to use. Got a pack of coyotes that need thinning or hopefully eliminating, but I doubt that will happen. Always manage to catch a skunk, few possums, fox or two, and several coons (4 legged kind), and usually a bobcat or two.

Come to think of it, I need to work on my box stand, too.

I believe all of my stuff is ready. I even over achieved and made waxed dirt this summer. Our water opener is only a couple weeks away and bobcat, fisher and marten are still over 2 months away.

Waxed dirt.... never heard of that. I'm guessing that's used to prevent the ground from absorbing water and freezing. We dont have that problem here in the far northern reaches of Louisiana.

Dyed and waxed my traps this past weekend. Our trapping season begins this weekend and I am loaded with Fox and Coyotes and coons here. Should be a good season! Been trying hunt the yotes and have shot 2 so far-one with the bow while deer hunting, but too busy with work to go out at all hours of the night after them, so the traps being out 24/7 should be a big benefit!

Our water season opens a week from today and I was all geared up and ready. We got 3-4 inches of snow today and highs this week will be around 35. I guess I may as well put them all back away.
