FOX SETS, SNOW AND WATER—Kindly tell me how the snow set and the water set are made for foxes.
There are dozens of snow sets and dozens of water sets. One snow set is a black feather near a fox runway. The trap is set on a hummock from which the feather is easily seen. The fox climbs the hummock—if care is taken to hide the trap—and is caught. A water set is a trap under water; one fox set is to put moss on the pan forming an island large enough for the fox to step on. A rabbit, hen, musk rat or other bait floating on the water two or three feet beyond the trap, which is eighteen or twenty inches from the bank draws the fox, You would better read “Fox Trapping,” price sixty cents, which we publish, it gives countless details about snow and water sets.
