Cave

Yesterday I took two of my little brothers with me to check traps on some land near our house, the first set yielded a small possum. While I was re-setting the trap, one of my brothers looked up at a big cliff ( I guess you could call it ) and saw a cave part way up it. So today me and my brother Greg checked it out. We found some bobcat tracks leading in. I was too chicken to go all the way in.

Trapper,
I been readin yer posts...you been doin right good!
My folks are from Tazewell VA...which is in the mountains here...and you can go cavin just bout anywheres. I used to go down 5 or 6 times a year...mostly durin the summer ghog huntin and I always went cavin as we call it. They are fun...but dangerous. We went in one...was climbin all over the steep jagged edges....and the 30 or so foot drop snuck up on us.

Nobody fell....but we knew to move slow and always keep the lights shining ahead. Enjoy but be careful...and by the way...missouri is right perty country too.

Do you guy think this set will catch a bobcat?
Any advice?
