Great Job. Looks like the weather was cooperating with you. I trapped PWS one year, was a learning experience for sure!!!! That's when I discovered mink could climb trees and get into my marten sets. Lots of mink out there. Never could an otter though.

Congrats on the Gulo!!!

Would be interesting to know where you are in PWS and what form of transpo you are using.
Good luck on the next check.

Let us know how long skinning the wolverine takes you. I have it down now, but my first one...well, lets just say that being new at a wolverine, and it being my first....I didn't want to mess it up. Was a LOOOOOOOOOOONG process. smile Way to go though!!!!

My boss has caught a few wolverine himself and he is going to give me a hand skinning it so I don't screw it up.

It skins just like everything else...just slower. smile Think otter on time frame and skinning ease...

Just got these 2 otters a bit ago. A medium female and a good sized male.



I think I like shooting them more than getting them in traps, way more exciting!!!!

Picked up another marten in the same set as the first.



Nothing else on the line. I did have another wolverine come right up to one of my cubbies. Another 6" and it would have been caught. It circled around the back of the bucket but wouldn't commit. Any ideas?? I am hoping it comes back.

Put a snare pointing straight off the back side, that way it protects it from anything circling. Well thats what i do with my cat sets anyway and it seams to work for them might work for you too.
