Well started to trap for the frist time this past weekend. It has been slow due to the weather conditions. But I have got an Raccoon and a Muskrat so far, the raccoon i got in an otter set. Got five other traps out for the otter right now, they are hard on my trout (I'm a fish farmer). Have also got afew coyotes traps out too. The coon the very first one that I have ever skin in four years of trapping as I never targeted them because I always heard how hard they were to do.

Nice!! I like the otters. I never realized that they could get so big. I'd love to see one in the wild.

Wow! I'd LOVE to catch an otter but, unfortunately, that won't happen in PA. We really don't have many, and in fact, I've never even SEEN an otter!

They are VERY cool looking animals though!

We've only got a handful of traps out right now. No more k9 activity as of late and we have only got a single coon in the last few weeks.

After rifle season ends (Saturday) we'll get out a lot more sets I hope.

Well got another coyote from the same spot. That makes four so far for the season with lots of time left yet. All have been females so far so it got to help the coyote population in the area come spring. Will post some picture once they are downloaded.
