    Keep in mind the problem may be extremely complicated, though the "Fix" is often simple...

    Default CAST CALL-New Survival TV Show

    WANTED: OUTDOOR ENTHUSIASTS WHO REALLY KNOW HOW TO SURVIVE
    Do you have the skills to take on Mother Nature in all her fury and survive? Can you start a fire without a match, find water in the wilderness, hunt for food and brave the elements? A new television series is calling all wilderness junkies in the greater Los Angeles area to demonstrate your survival skills. Maybe you are a wilderness guide, hunting/fishing/trek hand, or a backcountry camper with extraordinary skills. Maybe you've found yourself stranded, snowed-in or castaway - and survived. If you've got the will, the ingenuity and the wilderness sense to face the elements, now is the chance to prove it to the world.

    Email us with a short explanation for what makes you an extreme survivor, or any stories that exemplify your outdoor survival skills, as well as a PICTURE, and preferably a video of you in action.

    Looks like spam to me...
    Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. Helen Keller

    He's been banned. His posts were left up as a reminder to the next one that stops by - lets them know they are venturing into dangerous territory. His email addy was removed, so now it's just entertainment.

    Default Design issue with the Haverhart larger box trap

    It happens, we set a trap and come back the next day and the trap is on its side and the bait is gone, with no animal caught. I remembered that one could attach the trap to a larger board to keep it from tipping. Turns out Raccoons and other animals see the bait from the side and swat the trap over - keeping the trigger from popping. Attaching a board with bail wire allows you to use a pair of pliers to seperate the board witout releasing the animal. On the other hand the board keeps the vehical clean while transporting. This prevents the animal swatting the box over and gaining entry... I even add a few inches at the front and back to allow two people to pick up a loaded trap.

    Does anyone else use this idea?

    Thats a good idea!
    I never had that sort of problem though. I made my box trap,and it's pretty heavy!
    If killing neighborhood critters isn't an issue, nothing beats a 220 conibear, cubby set! IMO

    Very nice post and very informative.And on those coons putting the trigger side of the trap against something also helps keepthe little bears from tripping the live traps.

    Just got my first set of traps last year, and four more traps this year. Still haven't used them yet as I'm trying to read as much as I can through this year before getting out there, but starting next year it's game on. It's funny, I've been hunting for over 25 years and in the woods a lot longer than that, but just now getting into trapping. I wonder what took so long...

    As for me, it is different. But maybe I will try to use traps too.

    You guys keep waiting a year or two between posts and all the critters will get away from you!
    If you didn't bring jerky what did I just eat?
