    I'm gonna get my bobcat trap up and running soon, i just have to wait for the weather to get colder so the pelts get thicker for better quality.

    The pelts here are already pretty good. Well I can't say for bobcats because I haven't caught one of them yet.. Lol but fox and coyote have great fur already.

    Bobcat starts in Dec. in Idaho, Can't wait! It's been about 3 years since I run a line, but all the kids are in school this year, so it's going to happen!!!

    Bobcat just opened here on the 15th. I'm excited to have my line put out already. My kids love going with me to check them!

    Oklahoma season opens Dec. 1st. I usually trap my coons first (cause they are easy). We are allowed 40 coons & 20 bobcats. I start making my cat sets after the 15th of January when deer archery ends. The month of Febuary is always the best for cats here. I use the duke dp coontraps they are awesome. For bobcats I use a #1 3/4 & #2 coil-spring offset duke. For coyotes I use a #3 coil-spring offset duke.

    I meant to hit the cats this year, but drawing a sheep and elk tag (and deer of course) put a strain on my plan. I didn't multi-task very well.
    Maybe I can come from behind and get a few sets out now that the hunt is over.

    I trap here in Australia but it is the off season as it is Summer, and the lambs have already dropped.

    Fox, pigs and Dingo.

    You have to use live traps here in the Capitol Territory as the odds are you will catch something that is considered to be native wildlife and can not be killed.

    I had 3 live traps on a farm near my house trying to help out the farmer, who's sheep were getting slaughtered by foxes (foxes in Australia are the 30 pound English variety not the 10 pound American kind). The 3 traps ended up getting stolen about a month into the winter, and all I ever caught was wallabys and brushy tailed possums.

    Next season ( our last one in Australia), I am going to see if I can find a place to snare in the New South Whales as they have more unrestrictive rules.

    Jen do you snare? It's awesome, I used to snare a lot as a kid in Wyoming.

    Eberle- do you like your duke traps? That's what I was using and I was having troubles with them. I switched over to fully modified offset #3 Bridgers this year. They are mean little things!

    Wycoyote- I don't blame you! I wish I had those tags! Lol

    Edelweiss- what all can you trap down in Australia?!!!
