Sets too close together ( 02:56:19 WedDec 11 2013 )

I am new to trapping and I was wondering how close you put marten/ fox sets together on your line? I put a few fox sets within a stones throw away from a marten box but wasn't so sure that is a good idea.

Also we tried putting some rabbit in the marten box and using peanut butter near the base of the tree as an attractant. Is this just confusing them?

Thanks four the help!

Where to place sets really depends on the activity you have.
In some places ( like here) fox generally won't go near a marten set. So placing a set for fox close to a marten set may not work.
In other places fox don't seem to mind and in fact will steal marten that get caught. Then I would say it's a good idea to set a few fox traps around.
You will find out the habits of your critters soon enough.

I would not bother with the peanut butter at your marten sets.
Use a good "skunky" lure like 'Gusto' to bring the marten around.
I take it you are using boxes and body grip traps?
How are you setting these up ?

Good luck!

I figure it never hurts to ask? I will be headed up there in a couple years..it would be an honor to learn from a seasoned trapper. Everything I have read and watched tells me ultimately to find a mentor. Also knowing some locals that trap will hopefully keep me from stepping on someone's toes?? I hear people get pretty upset about territory.
