been trying for them the last few years and nothing yet. had one on a #4 this winter.(know it's small but that was all i had at the time) chewed on everything around it, heart pumping tracking it into thick willows only to find the drag and the trap... no wolf. the drag got caught, wrapped around a few trees until the chain and the wire was tight and pulled out. from there everything got frustrating so i pulled whatever i had and was done for the winter. been working on some snares so i'll use more of those next winter. good pics, like the sets.

Mogie,

Using adequate gear (that will HOLD as well as catch them) is a lesson I learned the hard way!

Unfortunately I educated several wolves before that one sank into my hard head....!

That's one of the downfalls of being an adult beverage spokesman and "Most interesting man in the world"

Haven't heard of a #6, but to save you some issues, just buy some #9's. Expensive but well worth the price.

Seems to me years ago when I was buying Livestock Protections, their 6 3/8 double long spring was known as a 6. The 7 and the 8 came along, successfully bigger and now it seems as though the 6 is known as a 4...my memory is kind of going though and I could be making this up. Of course I canned all the pans that came on them so no way to substantiate my claim.

The aircraft is made by Found out of Canada and it is a Bushawk XP that is one of four owned by Fish & Wildlife.

Oh Yeah I did see a Found here once a couple years ago. The feds had it here for just a couple of days. Looked like a cross between a 185, Beaver and a Cub. No strut now that I remember seeing it.
