i will wipe most of it off as best as i can. thanks white and FT. That is a pretty lucky catch on that wolverine i guess he didnt want to bite it he wanted to grab it to go right alaskan. nice catch and wolverine them belisle sure can hold anything by anything foot, head, hand, tail, paw, that would make me a believer as well i just got to wait to order in some new traps. that first picture looks pretty neat.

Here's a couple wolverine sets I put out this week.


This is a remake from last year
Last years result. Snare was a little to low. She walked through and got a hip catch. 1/16" cable with no swivel. I put swivels on all my wolverine snares this year.

AKhowler, what is that conibear stabilized with?

I've been thinking about trying a few set similar to that on beaver houses. Wolverines always seem to like to check them out.

Akhowler and FT nice catches. We made a Wolverine Set on those Beaver houses way out in a lake. We drag in a Tall Narrow Tree and slide it out over the top of the beaver house. Set a box under the pivot point with a coni gaurding it. And put a set on top of the pole. I have no picks though. But you get the idea.
I always wanted to dig out a 5 gallon size hole in a cut bank where a creek and slough merge and keep baiting it and set a coni at the mouth of the hole. A natural Cubby. I have 12 coni's and buckets ready with some snares i made up for a leaning tree. Jus have to get out this weekend and get the trail in.

Kusko, I wired the back leg of each spring to the root wad on both sides. Pretty solid. I plugged up the other holes with big rocks and threw a big chunk of stink bait down the hole. Last year, I had a pole set about 10 yards from this place and the wolverine would pace around the tree time and time again. I hope this satisfies his hunger.

Heading out to the cabin tomorrow for a week again, taking the quad out so that i can get out more farther skidoo is still being fixed. So hopefully i can have some catch pictures and i think this can be like my journal of this year i dont think its a very good journal because i only have had one catch so far. so i dont think it will all be that interesting but who knows maybe ill have some better luck this year. thanks for all the tips on the wolverine sets and tips from everyone and hope every one has some good luck and get some fur

I just got out to my cabin and i couldnt wait to see if i caught that wolverine. so i went and checked the trap and i seen that the trap was sprung but it had snowed so much that i didnt know what i had caught so i went over there and pulled on the trap and this is what i find in the trap. its not a very big one wolverine but its the first one of the year and i am very happy i caught it. this is the trap from the milk crate set.

yup it sure is a dark one. i got him all skinned out and fleshed and on the stretcher heres is a picture.

Here is a picture of any set that i put out today for hopefully the next wolverine will be in this one. first time id be trying this box out i have used these for marten and a wolverine came along and slapped it around til the trap snapped so maybe this one will work and i put it between a few trees so that if the wolverine thought to try and snap it around it couldnt and i still have some to set like the leaning pole set but waiting for my brother to come out.

I don't see why it wouldn't work.

i dont see why either but i am new to trapping with big conibears so i thought i would try it and it would probably work better because of all the glue it has in the board but thats what i would think. so hopefully ill have something in it while im here.
