Seems like a good season :up:

Actually for me just the opposite.  Last year I had over 70 reds but this year with all the rain I only got about half.  My rat catch is down a little and my mink catch is about the same but I had to run more traps and cover a lot more land to catch them.

How many traps do you normally check daily? And how much walking do you do each day?

Tough to say for fox I run 40 to 50 sometimes more, rats and mink 50 plus but at the end of fox when I start beaver mink and rats also all at the same time I could be checking well over 100 sets a day. I walk miles every day and usually takes me 4 hours a day.

The reward is in just doing it. There is no real money to be made. The market crashed a few years ago due to Russia, China, and Turkey's economies tanking. They are the big three in the buyers world. I only ran a fraction of what I normally do because of a change in work schedule but for what I had out I had a decent season. I have ten loops out around a bait pile for the last night.
