    Trapping on Finland with "Kanu-loukku"

    I had some spare time on my hands this winter, since we had two feet of snow and I couldn't do much hunting. Well, I could've, but I ain't much of a skier. So I decided to do some arts and craft, and built my own trap. The model is called "Kanu" in Finland.

    I set the trap on the corner of my field, next to the dirt road my kids take when they walk to school. Now I don't have to check it every day myself, my kids do it for me five days a week.

    I started with a dead rooster as a bait and as the spring is warming up, all the little critters are starting to wake up.

    Here's a pic of the first catch, a badger.

    Nice trap and "catch". I hear they're mean little buggers. What was his fate??

    He met his demise with a .22LR hollow point between the eyes. And yes, they sure can be "mean little buggers", but this one had gobbled up a whole rooster and wasn't very active. Growled a lot and showed his fangs when i got closer, but was so stuffed that didn't take many steps.

    After the badger, I've gotten two of these little scallywags. They are called "supikoira" or just "supi" in Finland. I think they are related to raccoons. They are one of the biggest reason for a rapid decrease of field grouse and pheasants around here, so we try to exterminate them when ever we can. There ain't many species we can hunt the whole year around, but they are one of them.
