As it is, I have half a dozen white buckets in my kitchen right now. I'll go slap on the cammo base colour in a minute

Actually, that primer holds it quite well. I'm now busy overlaying it with vinyl silk emulsions. I've done my share of cammo jobs before so have a clue what I'm up to, though that was some years ago. I need some more paints though as my old stock's either nearly used up or else completely dried up!
Sorth that out when I next go into town. I have the colours custom blended, of course. Round here, " Juncas Green " and " Dead Juncas 'Brown' " will be the final colours of choice.

Thanks very much for the kind and generous, mate. But the fact is, I've painted the ones I have and whilst it's undoubtedly not as good as the tape, it's f***ishly cheaper! I priced up even the 'cheap as chips' stuff, on the Bay. Still worked out it'd cost me an arm and a leg to cover X buckets of Y size. I mean, we are talking stupid money.
So, I don't want to torture myself. If I got hold of a couple of reels. Did a bucket or two. I'd never again be content or satisfied with any of my others. I'd favour the gold plated ones so much, it'd cripple my freedom, if ye see what I mean.
Anyway, much of what I talk about on here is just for the craic. I hope to inspire others and provoke thought. I'm always thinking and trying out things. I'm already starting to break away from " Buckets ", per se. Looking more into " Blind Sets " ~ as I think they're called? ~ now. Just dig a hole in a natural bank and call that a 'Bucket'. Don't have to carry it with ye. Never run out of them. Don't cost jack to cammo
Thought; Isn't it?

Anyway, truth to tell, the assignment I wanted the buckets for has gone tits up on me. An abysmal failure I've jacked in with that whole idea now.
Today though I set too and have made myself a whole load of 'Coni Stands'. I'm now into a new groove and shall be trying just the traps, set out on the runs. (Suitably covered, as required by law and ethic, of course!) At least my traps have now been exposed to the elements enough to have taken on some lovely rusting. Complimenting my own cammo paint jobs brilliantly! They do look the business now!
Look even better with the right thing stone dead between their bloody arms, mind!
We'll see .....
Or, rather, I will! :whistle:

I wouldnt bother with the buckets, the 'blind sets' work just as good, if not BETTER...of course, i have used them in conjuction with Duke leg holds etc for fox and other critters in the desert...never failed, and when i run my trap line this season, they will all be blind setts mate...give them a go!

With this in mind, by the way, I have a bag in my freezer. It's always being added to. Mice!
