Re: BILL INTRODUCED TO BAN PURSUIT OF BEAR AND BOBCAT IN CA

Someone was saying that before Brown got the bill it had been amended to read all mammals not just bear and bobcat. Does anyone know if this is true? If so does this mean we are done with running everything here?

Cage trapping Mink and Weasel.

How many of you guys and gals out there cage trap mink and or weasel? Due to the state rules cage trapping them is my only option, I do think using wooden boxes with rat traps is ok also. I have been trapping for a few yrs now but when I lived down in the valley mink and weasel were to far away to g...

Re: Washing Fur

As for tanning are you looking to do some pelts for your own use? If so you can try some of that do it yourself tan but it really dont cost that much to send in some pelts and have them done right. If your wanting to put up pelts to sell you dont want to tan them. Skin, flesh and put up, then sell. ...

Re: Washing Fur

ALEX, I make sure all burs are removed before and thing else, if not you can rip the pelt when skinning and fleshing. Same as said before some animals are brushed others I remove by hand, get some of the cheap kids hair detangler from Walmart and spray it on to help it works great. As for Fleas and ...

Re: Coon activity in the Summer

We run them all summer long (training season) and tree just as many in the summer as in the winter its a little more work for the dogs with the heat but just as much fun. The only thing we do different with summer hunting from winter is we start later going out after 9 or 10pm.

Re: I.D. tags

They do work and turn out ok but nothing like the ones you can buy from Customcollars, Nitelite and so one. On a side note the stamps they sell will hold up very well I have used my set 100's of times at work and they are still going strong.
