Marty Senneker, he wrote the book Mass Production Coyote Snaring.


Why should I apologize for becoming a monster?
Did anyone apologize for making me one?

I never heard of him or his book. But it has been a while since I was running the long line. But I bet I know some of his methods. Coyotes aren't that hard to snare. And there are a few things that will help a person to catch them in numbers.

We can't land snare in IL, we can in water, but I usually just go with a coni for water trapping.
Have you had any luck catching those cats that have been prowling around?

No, the snow left, the deer moved back up into the hills, and the cats followed them. I am sure we will have the occasional one here but not like when all the deer were concentrated right behind the house.

They are good at evading a game came too. Got him just as he turned to swim off.
(yeah I know, I forgot to set the right year and time when I put new batteries in)

Then again, that might just be a cougar that swims underwater..... :hide:

One of your pet's relatives moved into one of our hay meadows. Thinking he won't last long.

Expect nothing in return either!

The state is trying to restock Bear now.
Idiots we eradicated them 75 years ago. Last wolf if I remember correctly we eradicated in the 70’s.

In our state,a beaver causing damage on private property can be killed without a permit from DGIF.

Early morning,late evening,moonlight night and a good deer rifle fixes the problem.

We have beavers here and lots of streams and creeks. For some reason they don’t much like them. They would rather dam up runoff and the smallest springs. I think our creek banks are so steep it’s not conducive to their dam building.

They don't build many dams here in E Texas that look like the traditional beaver dams up north...don't build the same type lodge as their Northern cousins either. If ya don't know what to look for, you'll never know they're there. They tunnel into the steep banks under the water, go upwards to above normal water level, make several compartments, and the tunnels can go out into the side of the bank a long ways, with openings that look like a rabbit hole. I've dug several out with my backhoe..they can be extensive.

My little river would be called a creek most times and it's full of them, without a single dam anywhere, but if you know what to look for or listen close at night, you can hear them. The juveniles like to play and splash around. We get too much torrential rain here for a traditional stick dam to hold in place when the water gets into flood stage. They're happy enough in the river, using the deep pools that usually occur in bends of the channel instead of trying to dam up the flow.

The dams they do build here are almost always mud and grass, and if not torn out soon, will grow over with grass and brush and you'd think it's just a natural buildup of dirt and grass and brush. When they build those, they're like little bulldozers, pushing the aquatic grass and mud along in front of them in their front paws and into the dam base and top. They go out into the grassy areas near their tunneled lodges and gather or cut grass and leaves to line the nursery part of their lodges.

They will clog up drain culverts if they have to tho..had a pair do it several years ago.
Might take a picture of a dam that has been under construction for about 2 months now. Getting wider at the base, longer accross and higher all the time. Wide enough now that cows are walking on it.
