Here at work I've been selling black walnut kernels. Friend of mine, he's 80 years old, he and his wife cracked and picked out over 100 pounds of nuts last season. Not sure what they're up to this fall? Nice, big, clean kernels too. Not a bunch o

Brian, you have to see which ones are on a sale price. Usually the unshelled ones are cheaper, but sometimes not by very much. I enjoy carrying a snack sized baggie of shelled ones along when I snowshoe to check traps, or in the deer blind. And, Mr.

Frank, I hope you get trapping soon, so you have more to do than weigh empty peanut shells. Maybe you could count stars---or count how many leaves are falling on your lawn today. Ron

I remember reading somewhere that after you make a set for predators , your scent lingers in the area long after you've left. I try to be scent free as much as possible when I make my sets. I wear rubber boots , gloves and scent free clothing. I was

I know this has nothing to do with trapping but I thought I'd share this with you anyway. I'm a pistachio nut freak. I can purchase either the ones in the shells, or the ones without shells. I figured I'd purchase the cheaper ones that are still in t

I am no longer mandated to use Padded Jaw traps, so I don't. When I did, I dismantled the traps (pads), boiled the traps and pads clean, waxed the metal, and reassembled the traps. I do not use "dip" on land traps. (You need to modify your

I hose mine off with a power washer, let them dry, and dip them in speed dip. I have been doing it for years. All is still good. I do the same with standard traps, too.

Has anyone used these in a beaver marsh where rats also resided? I was wondering if a beaver might go for a parsnip with rat lure. I was thinking of slapping a few of these in when beaver trapping. Looks like a neat way to trap rats on the YouTube ad
