Why would anybody be trapping rats now in southern Wisconsin (10-26-2016) ? Stopped by a lake around West Bend and someone had flags everywhere. not even close to prime?

Getting ready, I should be thinking about bowhunting but all I keep thinking about is trapping.  I went to the convention last weekend and got some new baits/lures and lots of new ideas that I cant wait to try out.  I even got the 1st round of traps dyed already.

Sure am! Didn't make it to Marshfield, but about to place a good order through F&T here. Drew a cat tag this year for southern zone so will get to try my hand at trapping cats this year. Looking forward to it!

Well looked over some new gear tonight that I picked up at Marshfield last week.   Getting excited to be back out there chasing yotes, sloshing thru water to feed beds and catching a few late season coon

Anyone else getting ready?

Fellow trappers and outdoorsmen in general, please attend tonight's public input meetings and vote no to question #24 on a common dry land opening date. This cuts 2 weeks out of the trapping season which hurts all sportsman by lowering the harvest of coon, fox, coyotes, skunks and possum. Those extra critters will still be eating all winter and spring so bye, bye more deer, waterfowl in spring and game birds. IMO it was a bad proposal to start with and needs to be defeated. Wisconsin Trappers Association agrees and voted not to support this change.

Thank you for reading this.

Alex

well I took my girls with me to pull my 6 sets I had in the area. knowing I still had to old hag to get out for the farmer, but was running out for time to check this week. well she didn't disappoint. the girls were more that happy help and carried across three creeks and a river. well my shoulders weren't. man was I tired and sore the next day. she weights 61#s after drying out. they wanted to talk a pic on the hut as they were queens of the hut now. with the season ending today I want to thank you all for the help through the year and for reading. happy off season and

Nice work nabbing that bad boy part-timer! Love your pics man, very cool. I finally snagged my otter in a castor mound set on Saturday! We ended up pulling on Saturday. We had 26 sets out for exactly 14 days. Ended up with 23 beaver, 23 rats, and an otter. I had my biggest beaver to date aslo (a legit 60 pounder, previous best was 52)
