Making Bobcat Cubbies
By Toby Trigger


 

Bobcat trappers will be setting traps on Monday, many of whom will begin at 12:01 am and set all day. The best trappers have already begun making cubbies so that when opening day arrives all they have to do is set the traps and place the fresh bait and go on to the next set location.

Cubbies create interest for the bobcats and also help keep the snow and rain out of the set location to prevent traps from freezing.

Here’s how a good cubbie should look. Make your cubbies in areas away from people and trails and in areas with a lot of bobcat tracks for optimum results.

Natural walk-through cubbies like this one keep traps weather proof through the winter season.

Hanging an attractor like tanned fur strips and wiring fresh beaver meat inside will help bring the cats over your trap.

Good Luck Trappers!
