Postby swamprat27 » Tue Jan 20, 2009 10:30 pm

Can anyone tell me a tips for trapping in deep snow, such as 2 feet or more. I try to scout for new sign, But never see any. Am i in the wrong location? or do the smaller furbearing animals not like deep snow?

Thanks for the help

:huh: More info is needed. What are you trying to trap? What are you using for traps? If there are no tracks then there are no critters. Are you after fox, coyote, coon, cats, beaver, mink, marten? These are things folks need to know if they are going to try and help you.
Build memories, take a kid out doors and teach them about nature by interacting with it, hunting and fishing.

Learn from the past, don't dwell on it.
