I dont enjoy spring trapping

Postby Lefty » 04 20, 2018 •  [Post 1]

Neighbors have been loosing chickens and ducks. The one fellow has 8 milk goats that are ready to drop, and the fox den is only 80 yards from the pen.
He has been trail cam the den for weeks hoping they would leave.
We should have some good catch pics

Cute little guys , meaner than snot,. and all teeth.

Mostly in farm ground or where the wolves are thick and the coyotes thin.
Locally mange had been rampant the past 15 years, more in the fox population. the Snake river plain has a fair population in ag country.

I trapped a mink for the neighbor last week. He killed 14 hens in two nights.
