cdr,
we have huge cedar thickets here in eastern kansas. these are prime locations for cat sets...

i use cedar branches to make wire cubbies and to cover my cages

if you find a large cedar, go right at the base of the trunk on the south side and dig down a couple inches you will find dry dirt and needles... this is an excellent bedding for late season.. the needles allow the moisture to run down through them and they are not as likely to freeze...

tbn,
no.... i don't do enough trapping that anyone like bob wendt would even notice my presence...hehe

Yes, cedar duff makes good trap bedding/cover. Always dry in the dead of winter.Those cedars make natural places to set footholds because you can keep them working in heavy snow by getting up under a large tree sheltering the set from the elements. Our cats always smell like cedars. I imagine it is from where they live,hunt and or rub to mask themselves.Don't overlook high,rocky banks. Where in Oklahoma do you reside? Once fishing a tournament at Skiatook Lake outside of Tulsa, we watched a nice bobcat walk down to the water and walked along the bank working its' way up into the timber/thickets going up a fairly steep hillside.The thing could care less that we were 50 yds. away.

Well, it looks like I'm going to buy som Duke #2's, because they are really the only thing I can afford. Will these need to be 4-coiled?

No choke down????,
I 'd think you'd want to save the skulls or no blood on the fur...
'Cats are easy to choke down with a good pole. They go pretty quickly....about 30-60 seconds of Rodeo though.... smile

.......i dont choke them down seems easyer and quicker to me to whip out the pistol ...only time i use my pole is to release them ......last year released a few females .........nope just a quick shot...i can wash blood out ..just my prefrence......had a few rodeos last year one releasing a few
