    Mountain Lion trapping

    What’s up guys it’s been a while since I’ve posted in here, I moved to Utah recently and they have changed the regs to where cougar/mountain lion hunting is open all year no quota. You also can trap them. Me and my wife were shed hunting and on one small hill and found about 30-40 mule deer and elk carcasses(most being tiny bucks) The next week we were shed hunting again and saw a lion about 300 yards away. It’s in a pretty rocky steep section. We were planning on calling for lions, but recently I’ve wondered about trapping for them instead. My thoughts are maybe looking around for a fresh kill and placing a couple traps nearby. I know it would take tons of luck, but just wondered if anyone has had experience with it? Arizonas trapping is so limited I never even thought about doing it, but now it’s basically free range year round here I want to try. Thanks a ton.
  2. As much as I hate to part with these items it only makes sense at this point. I have 2 young kids and another one on the way and trapping will likely be put on the backburner for a few years until my kids are a little older and I can take them out. I'll still do a fair share of pred calling in the meantime. Need room in the garage as well. Everything you see in these pics were used about 6 weeks only before my dad got terminally ill and I literally had to abandon my new hobby. It is all basically brand new and the traps work perfectly and still have the paint on them. Again, only used for a few weeks. Save yourself some money if you are planning on getting into trapping as this is a great package deal. Mercer traps are about the best there is out there. So up for sale: Set of 4 Mercer Traps (new are $390) Ausable brand bobcat urine from pcs website x 2 (new $30) Approx 7 different lures, some of it used mostly or half full bottles (new approx $50) 60" briarpatch catchpole (new $45) One Eyed danglers for back of cage (set of 12 $55 new from briarpatch) Bucket/tools/repair wire/wrench for tightening tension/pre cut black plastic/mini shovel rake, misc items (about $50 in gear or more) + Shipping if all this was bought online Basically this is the perfect start up Kit for a new trapper or someone that wants to add cages/equipment to their arsenal. There is literally nothing you need to buy that I can think of. It's all ready to go. If you add up the value of everything new it is around $620 or likely more. I am asking $475 Obo for everything. Trapping season is upon us so now is a good time to get prepared. Was going to post on CL as well but will wait and see if a CWT member is interested. In Prescott Valley ---Nate
  3. I used to go trapping with my awesome Father when I was very young, but this was the First year trapping for our Family! We didn't get to trap as much this year as we had hoped because we were busy hunting. But that's OK, it was a great year and a great trapping season! In the time we trapped we were blessed to catch 19 cats. We kept and took 12 of them to the ATA fur sale in Globe along with 9 fox and a couple coyotes. Prices were low but for that sale we did much better than average so we were happy. This was a fantastic Family experience! Can't wait tell next season!!!
  4. Hey guys, I'm extremely interested in trapping, I'm 20 years old, a full time college student, I'm majoring Forestry with a wildlife management cert in hopes of working for the AZGFD. I just finished the trappers education course, and just have to buy my trappers license. I was wondering if anyone would be up for taking me on a couple trapping check lines and running me through it? I mainly just want to see what it's like, and if it's something I want to invest in, as well as learn and get some first hand experience. I live in the Gilbert/Mesa area off of Higley/Guadalupe, would prefer to drive to someone in the east valley, but am open for any opportunity I can get. I'm definitely willing to help in any way possible in exchange for first hand experience and knowledge. - Seth S.
