i was thinking about doing just that bruce but i was thinking about using a fencing staple to hold the trap to the brach.. i tried this last year but did a poor job with my cone and all 15 traps had the bait taken and no critters.. i think if i did a better job with my cone it would work really good..
thanks for the advice

i was going to buy them this year.. but i made a order like this and another one half as big.. so maybe next year i will.... i can only spend so much per year... but i do like the idea of traveling light into the bush.. traps, bait and axe.

It sure comes in handy not having to carry bulky boxes and such around.

i have been having bad luck with the lure i am using and would rather not say what kind it is just because so many guys love it and it works for them.. but i changed to marten magic now and will see how it works.. it worked good for me last year..

and yes i am married for over 8 years.. i work hard and have a good job so my wife is fine with what i do.. it ticks me off when people say i should be lucky with what my wife "lets" me do.. i dont own her and she does not own me.. but she is the greatest person in my life.

i made that order for MTP and made another not as big from MTP and few orders for Ram Connection in Canada.. to anyone who knows me it is no surprise.. i go all out and have fun... the trick is you just need to work a tiny bit harder then you play.. and that starts to suck when you play hard because then you have to work hard..

Your boy is splitting image of you. Great to see someone with passion who involves the whole family. Sure there will be a lot of memories made.

Country,
I agree completely about working just a bit harder than you play. Too many overtime hours at work leaves a person broken and empty. Out of curiosity, what is it that you do? You have a nice ATV/gun collection.

I do a few things.. i enjoy having many different ways to bring income in... it makes life fun
I am a full time carpenter.. part time gunsmith.. part time animal control officer and i teach firearm classes in my spare time grin

in past years i have collected more guns then i have right now. my rack holds 350ish and they have been full in past years... but after a while people start calling you at midnight about guns and things start getting to busy so i slow down for a few years.. the gunsmith thing i wanted to be a hobby and it turned into a full time job. so i bring it back to a hobby

and the atv's i love.. i broke my leg when i was about 14 and i was in a wheelchair or on crutches for 2 years so i spent a ton of time on a quad to get around. i want to get a old honda 3 wheeler yet and i would love another 1995ish honda 300 4x4.. you can get them cheap and it is nice when friends come over if you can all go for a ride.. i have always wanted to get into riding a bike but i freak out with them.. a close friend of mines brother was paralyzed this last weekend on a bike he is 24.. i know it can happen on a quad also but i think a bike is worse.
