Deadfall

Published by at 2:07 pm under Expeditions and Experiences

Today I have been building a new log deadfall for marten. I suspect that my previous lack of success with them is due to malconstruction and lack of preparation. So this year I am preparing early so the suspicious sap smell will wither away in time. The plan is also to “feed” the traps every time I pass by to make them get used to finding food there.

I will build one more deadfall today, which brings me up to a total of 5 marten, about 10 stoat, 1 mink and 1 multispecies deadfalls in this area. I need to at least double that before next winter.

I’ll inform you of any success of course!

The picture of a sausagelike thing is of a rinsing beaver-stommach.
