Hello, I am a 14 year old kid from Manitoba and I have decide to try a journal this year. I mainly target marten, fisher, beaver, muskrat, and coyote. I am going run 20 power snares for coyotes and 35 bodygrips for marten and fisher. Last year I caught 51 coyotes in 20 sets,as well as 4 marten and 1 fisher and 3 weasels in five sets. I also caught 111 muskrats, 1 mink, and 1 beaver.

Over the summer I have been haying on our farm and getting ready for this fall. Here are some of the boxes I have been building.





Also I am happy to report that today in the mail these three pretty certificates came from NAFA.

Scent mainly, I prefer wood over screen because of snow, I also wire my bait to the back of the box so the holes are a good place to attach wire.

Impressive numbers for a young guy. When did NAFA start giving out top lot awards for weasels? In the old days they didn't give you anything. I had 5 in the top lot one year at $12 each and got nothing.

Thank you. I have no idea when they started giving out top lot awards for weasels, but I am sure glad they do smile.

I got top lot for weasels this year at $7.00. Saw on the auction list that was REAL top lot, FOR ALL. 51 coyotes is a heck of a haul. You must be doing it right! Good job!

Storytime'
One morning at the Nationals one of the Manitoba NAFA employees was telling a story of some new trappers bringing fur into the NAFA depo. Mel was telling the Wisc boys of how the ages were going down and the fur bags volumes were going up. Powersnare you were the last one in the story.....and he was mighty proud telling the story of YOU.
Looking forward to your journal.
Make sure you get your hat and pin while in the depo in Winnipeg.

We can thank 2poor on this forum and his weasel threads for having TopLots for weasel... that is why they ran out of hats at the National....almost every Minn kid got one. One year they separated out 100 better skins,,,but they sold the same as the 1000 lot...go figure.

Sad part is that it didn't have any effect on the population, and all of them were taken off of three different quarters of land.

This Summer I have been preparing some of the skulls I had saved in my fur freezer (mink, marten, beaver, three wolves, and a fox). Here is a female mink that I prepared.



I will add pictures of my otter and marten skulls tonight, and the rest of the skulls when they are finished.

Try to difuse your flash intensity and the sutures will show better . Did you take any measurements for museum specimens ?

Figured I should show some of my preparation for the upcoming season.

Here are the forming boards I have been building.

Today I opened up my wolf skull buckets and was pleased to see they had cleaned up nicely.
These pictures were taken right after they were washed.

Hey power snarer, I like your hinged lid design! Perhaps the two blocks could be arranged to fit between the jaws to stabilize the trap?

OK, so is your hinge a rod that goes through the sides and top? Can't tell from the picture. The whole idea is a great modification!

No, Just a single nail on each side.
be sure to drill a pilot hole or the lid will split.

On your marten box, we have some BC Trappers that use that hinged lid also. The only difference is they have the lid only over the bait compartment, the rest of the top of the box is solid. The notches to hold the trap in palce are very narrow so the springs hold the trap in place, even on a vertical set box.

Very good idea indeed Power Snarer. smile

The young of the years teeth always fall out due the growth and spacing Polidet on the top holds them in place A soaking in 20 Mule teem laundry soap will clear up the last of the fats.

Well, the first day of regular goose season was here, so my dad, three of his friends, and I went goose and duck hunting.

We had a good morning with twelve geese and thirteen ducks.

I'm a little confused as to why you would put 160 buckets out for skunk? You could catch so many other things Accidentally

Anywhere where that is possible I have placed cages, however this is a location where that is not a risk. This was placed just outside a barn where the only other possible catch is Raccoon and I can assure you I have no problems with dead Raccoons.

Big yellow skunk I got with the shotgun.

Pretty skunk out of a 160 trail set.

no, extracting essence and placing the skunks around possible set locations for marten and fisher. more of ADC than anything, considering i am trapping them around our farm.

Very funny that you say this cause I have placed raccoon traps where there is no chance of catching a fisher or mink and yet I still catch them. Marten an fisher will venture a long ways from trees.

The thing is, when your traps are set with in a couple feet of a livestock door on a barn that is 50 feet from the house with cattle at large. Fisher and Marten do not come into the area. They also do not like the active firearm use that is going on there on a daily basis. Empty .22 and shotgun shells throws up a sign of danger.

Plus after living around something for 14 years you get to know what comes to the house and what doesn't.
Out in the bush, that's another story.

Thank you, That is exactly right, i agree that a 160 set just anywhere is not smart, however there are locations that you know what is there after years
of living right beside it

Skunk #7 today in a 160 Belilse.


Also I got a call yesterday from a lady with a miniature doberman pincher who is being attacked by a large marten. I put a few cages up and if I capture it I will release it in a more marten friendly area.

Skunk number 8 today.


Also yesterday a baler fire got away from a farmer 3/4 of a mile north of some of our properties and made it into the dry bulrush swamps. It was pretty bad with 5 fire departments and a helicopter. We lost a quarter section of pasture land and a quarter of wild hay. Fortunately we were able to get all our cows and bales home yesterday and this morning.

It is a set I use when the bank is too steep to set crawl-outs and the water is too deep (or the bottom too soft)to set channels. it works best on a vertical bank. sometimes you find a spot naturally as was the case this time, but more often than not I make one using a shovel. (in which case leave a patch of mud/sod istead of placing a log).
The arrows show the route a beaver uses to check out the lure.

Try drilling a little hole on the top and fill with water.... a little hydro-static pressure sure build's up.

It will only take one shot then.

But I like emptying the 870, one shot is ideal on live animals, but pumpkins are best when you empty the magazine into them! LOL

Ran the line today and had this little female in a 120 box under a bridge. she had a few porcupine quills stuck in her paws and chest. I will add pictures of it later today.

Then I had a weasel in a 160 marten and fisher set with beaver for bait. One benefit I find to coni-pans is I am picking up more weasels.

Ran a few sets today and had a weasel in a 120 mink box. Then on to a few marten/fisher sets where I had the red squirrel. catching squirrels is the one thing I dislike about the panned 160s


Will probably run the 18 power snares I set yesterday for coyotes this afternoon and if i get something I will add pics.

I'm surprised the weasels and squirrels trip the pan. I wouldn't consider a weasel or squirrel a good alternative to a 100 dollar marten.
You should be able to affix the pans closer to the coni and reduce the radius of the applied weight. That would make the triggers harder to trip for lighter animals while still allowing the marten to trip the trigger.

yeah, I don't mind the weasels as much,but IO hate when red squirrels are hanging beside the set, even worse when they are half eaten. will definitely try that

Weather has been very warm here so I ran the Coyote line again today. had this coyote pup wrapped up in a Ram. This pup has had a pretty bad fall with a missing leg and a bullet hole in the hind end.

Well a run of the 10 trap marten line produced a nice little marten in a vertical set.


Also yesterday after dark I found wolf tracks within feet of a marten box. didn't think much of it because we have a few wolves running around. Today however, had 2 horizontal boxes knocked down and the strips of summer beaver fur I had hung as an attractant were ripped off of most of my sets. Seriously considering investing in a few 750's.

Well I got the rest of my marten and fisher sets out today because I had the day off. Was nice to get out on the line today. saw probably 20 squirrels a coyote and a wolf pup. Ended up getting 13 traps out in a 6 mile stretch of jack pines and spruce.

Loaded up and ready to go


dad putting up a leaning pole.


lunch break


One of my leaning poles.


This set was made at 1 pm on my way out to the line and had a marten in the set on the way home at five. talk about a fast turn around.


Nice dark marten.

The school I went to would let us take the last 2 periods off at the end of the day to hunt and give you physical education credits for it, can't hurt to ask. Really fun to see young men hammer some fur, and some real ice fur at that, thanks for posting.

I noticed from your pics, you use the plastic corregated board. Do you just bend your triggers at a upward angle and slide board onto triggers?

I like the idea IA/INTrapper!

And RdFx, not my journal but I believe he does the same as me, just bend trigger wires over and slide the corrugated plastic (election sign) up onto it through the holes on one side.

Exactly right. The real question is whether your marten are conservative or liberal. Mine seem to be a big fan of our local conservative member of Parliament.

As well as making round submarine muskrat traps for the youth. Make sure there is room in your ride home vehicle for all the goodies, Should be a good Open House again this year, Pete from BC is coming for one of the talks, should be good to hear how to get diamond backs with out getting bit...seeing that Manitoba has only one record should be interesting

Well the line produced well today, picked up a weasel where we unload the four wheelers and a juvenile male at the first set. Then the one remaining set I have on my north line snagged this huge male. From the truck it looked like a fisher hunched up in the snow.

Well checked the coyote snares after dark and actually watched these 2 coyotes run away from me up the trail and get smoked. flashlight died before I could get a picture of the second coyote at the set.

Figured I would show you how fat some of the coyotes I catch are. the result of more food than they can eat all year long.


This is a chunk of fat ripped off the hide. it is at least a half inch thick.

once the lake fishermen start to leave their fish on the ice the coyotes will thin out considerably.
You should check with Powerview School because they have a trapping course in their school cirriculium, offered through the Model Forest program.

Pretty cool to see one get whacked. I bet those rams are pretty lethal. Have fun fleshing!

How do you flesh that grease pig in 5 minutes? Maybe I need to sharpen my knife smile

post fleshing knife. dull side cleans it right down to the leather and the sharp side cleans up the gristle on the head.

You are getting after it. Is this just you trapping or your Dad too?

My father is mostly my chauffeur. He will help with sets sometimes but mainly he drives me out to sets.

Another marten and squirrel today off my east line. Hadn't been out since Sunday and was expecting more but cannot complain. Really impressed with the colour on the marten as I have never caught one that pale.

Looks like you are doing good. You are bringing those specimens into the NAFA Open House on Saturday?
Sign up early for the muskrat sub-marine trap building, limited to the first 15 youth coming.
