    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.

    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?!!!

    Good choice Jen, can't go wrong with #3 Bridgers, thats my favorite cat trap! Does Wyoming require offset jaws?
