TOPIC: It's Coming !!!

Re:It's Coming !!! 6 months 4 weeks ago #39717

My little plum tree is at the end of the bloom process now and has not been frost bit yet.

We did have a couple of really light frost, but it did not appear to hurt the blooms. The petals are falling off now, and I will soon be able to see if fruit sets. Looking good so far... but ole jack frost could still come out and bite.

I pruned my apple and peach trees this weekend, and by the looks of my peach tree buds they would sure like to open up soon.

Going to put a good dose of gypsum on my seed bed this evening.

Come on spring.. stay away frost.

Chief... hate you got the flu for the nice weather span... I had the day off Monday and had a fishing trip planned, but my son got sick and I had to stay home with him... I did get some work done in the garden though.

That's some serious trapping!! I don't think our mink are that long around these parts. Are those unusually large???

I started trapping and ginseng hunting when I was in high school (late 70's).

The early 80's thru until around 1988 Trapping was very profitable...

110.00 for a nice male bob cat, got as high as 24.00 for a nice silver side bore coon, 5-6 dollars for muskrat, 40.00 for a male mink. We even got 4.00 for a possum, and 1.50 for a house cat hide (think they made glove liners out of them).

Most of the guns I have now were bought with fur and seng money.

Here are a few pics from 1987. We caught 101 coons and 67 muskrats (and lots of other critters) in 3 weekends on the Duck River. Back then you could only trap coon in Tennessee in the month of December. One of our weekends that year the river was up and falling fast... so we could not trap that weekend.

When I think about the good old days.. that is where I go.
