I was at my up north camp a couple weeks ago and put out 16 fisher/cat cubby boxes. Some were the black plastic newspaper tubes, retrofitted to take a #155 Body grip, some were wooden cubbies sized for a #160 Body Grip and the balance were wooden cubbies sized for a #220. I baited most of them with beaver, left over from last year and frozen solid. I also dug 3 dirt holes and baited them the same. All the cubbies got some skunky call lure and the dirt holes got a milder call lure. I waited 2 days and checked a few of them. Not all were hit, but the bait in a few cubbies was gone and 1 dirt hole was dug out with Coyote tracks in the dirt. I have no idea what took the bait in the cubbies.
I know this is sort of a wasted effort, but it sure is exciting and as the leaves are changing and the nights are getting cooler, it sure help pass the time until opening day.....

It's turning fall here too. Morning temperatures are down in the 40's. I'm sure glad to see it coming. I hate summer weather.
Endeavor to persevere.

The dog water has a skim of ice on it in the mornings, here. I dislike hot weather, too. Give me -20 C' to +20 C. Even better would be -15 to + 15.
