White... do you think you can show me a picture of how you do your vertical and leaning tree coffee can sets?

Thanks in advance,

Jeff

I'm sorry I come across as to mean that you or any one else on this site is making a profit on this trip, thats not what i thought, sorry. I understand the money goes to the project. And that is great.I MEAN NO DISRESPECT TO YOU,OKIE OR ANY ONE ELSE INVOLVED IN THIS PROJECT.Big money is just starting to take over hunting and fishing.It's starting to get bad around my part of the country with fewer and fewer places to hunt and fish for the average guy. I'm scared trapping,one of the most pure of all of our endeavors is next.Thats the reason for my reaction. ONCE AGAIN SORRY AND NOT DISRESPECT DUE.

In the second picture you can see the white wire(upper left) that holds the can to the tree. The trap is a Belisle 120 and the pipe is 1/2" I.D. PVC. The bait is either wired or frozen into the can. Works the same on a leaner.

White,

One last question... what is keeping the trap up? How do you have that attached?

I've only got a minute and then I'm headed out the door.

SO...sorry but no Journal entry tonight.

I dont want to dissapoint or drag this out but, keep in mind there is probably another week plus of journal entry notes I have scribbled down. I'll keep trying to get one journal "day" per evening so as to not drag it out too long, but story writing is not my strong point, and I know I wont be available this weekend to write any.

I promise, Ken and I want to find out how this story ends just as badly as you all do. LOL

Well enough so that they don't stick in your throat. Probably 4 fingers is a good rule of thumb. (how can that be ?)
