That Pine Marten is in a conibear trap. Where I am from that is highly illegal. A conibear must be submerged. We only used them for beaver. I read the New York laws ans it looks like you can use a conibear on land if it is less than 7.5"...

That is correct. For fisher and marten we almost exclusivley use 220 connibears on a leaning pole set. They must be at least 4' off of the ground.
where do you trap?

I do not like traps that don't kill instantly or trap the animal without hurting it. how often do you check your traps?

depends on the area I'm trapping, but it's either every 24 or 48 hours as required by New York State game law.

And leg traps aren't designed to "hurt" the animal, just hold them. I can stick my hand into any of my traps, and sure, some may sting like the dickens when they slap on, but they will not break any bones. I'm not saying that some animals that try to escape the trap don't injure themselves, it happens, but so do bad shots while hunting.

You can see in most of the pics that the animals don't have broken legs or bloody stumps. Most of the time they struggle for a little bit and when they figure out they can't escape, just lay down and wait.

In the grand scheme of things letting nature take its course is a much crueller fate to any animal, whether it be by disease, starvation or predation.

My Father has taught me to trap, hunt and fish from the day I was born. It's part of my heritage and I am doing the same with my sons.

That had to be a very short trap line. No more than 1-2 miles I would guess.

NY/New England Yotes are MUCH bigger than their western "cousins." They came up over the Great Lakes and interbred with wolves. Packs of Northeastern Coyotes can take down deer - and do it often.

They can also take down most dogs and/or small children. I concur the pix are sad, but those suckers aren't good for us around here.

I got to agree. I'm not against trapping, but the first picture of that yote in the trap kinda tugged at my heartstrings. It's only the pictures of the yotes in the trap that get to me too. Maybe it's just because they look so much like a dog.

Yeah, they do look like dogs and will even bark like dogs when you walk up on them. But man they turn nasty real fast!!

In my area they are seriously overpopulating due to the decrease in people trapping them. I had a couple mangy ones last season that definately would not have made it through the winter, that was really sad! I put them down and buried the carcasses.

We also have a problem with rabid racoons and skunks and you can trace the spread right back to the decline of the fur prices.

I know everyone has been supportive in this thread so far (:thumbsup:) but have also stated that they, themselves couldn't be a trapper. I can appreciate that, but in this day of urban sprawl where the line between rural and suburban is often just a few blocks we need trappers now more than ever.

Again I want to thank all the posters for respecting my way of life as I respect yours. If only all conversations about trapping and hunting could be so civil!!:supergrin:

I've had more than one ex-pet owner call me and ask me to "kill 'em all!!" after 'ol fido was taken out by a pack of yotes!!

My brother lives in Nevada on the edge of town. He has a 5' fence around his yard and 3 large black labs. He still often sees yotes on the other side of his fence. He had a new neighbor (NN) build a house behind him, NN's wife has 2 wiener dogs and no fenced yard. My brother tried telling them that letting the dogs out at night was not a good idea, but NN didn't listen. NN has lost 2 weiner dogs and bought 2 more to replace them. But now NN sits on the back deck with his .30-06 when he lets the dogs out. :rofl:

As far as being civil about trapping, My work schedule doesn't allow me the time to run a trap line and I don't have land nearby to run it on. That's what really prevents me from being a trapper. I also fully support trapping because the majority of people that are against trapping are also against hunting so hunters and trappers need to support each other as much as possible.

Nice photos. Never learned to trap or know much about the subject but find it interesting. How do you dispatch them? I have heard of using a 22 or clubbing them? Esox357.

Killing them is one thing, but letting them suffer is another entirely. When I was a young boy my neighbor called in a state trapper and my collie wound up in one of his traps. He was gone a week before my dad found him still in the trap. His foot was hanging on by only the skin. I can't even begin to imagine the pain he went through. I hate traps. But like you said, "To each their own.":dunno:

Some traps, like the connibear, kill them. But when I have to dispatch them I use my trusty 'ol Jennings J-22. I use 22 lr, but people like my Father-in-law insist on using 22 shorts. Either way one right between the eyes usually does the trick and if they need another the second one right behind the ear does it.

When I hear story like this, I shed a single tear ( maybe ) , but also have to ask how did you let your dog get in a trap in the 1st place? Most places have dog leash laws or you should have a fence to keep your dog out of other person lands and to avoid any uncessary harm to come to your animals. That's what a caring "pet owner" does.

In all of the connibear photos of the Yot and fisher looking animals, none where serious hurt or dead or dying.

That's the media protraying bad things on us trappers. Most connibear or victor leg holds only does that, leg hold the animal. Others do not and are govern by most state laws as to when and where you can deploy them.

For me depending on what I do, I perfer a neutral non-discriminative non-killing traps like a single or double falling door style. These don't harm a animal in any way ( they might harm themselves from being trapped, but the trap will not cause injury ). They are great for this, but R bulky, can't readily carry alot to the field and not design for mass deployment. These are really design for smaller areas where numerous type of animals are in the area and your targeting just one type.

They are fine when your trying to trap this

http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d200/kenfelix/skunkintrap.png

And not your adjacent property owner that fails to keep his dog secured, that happens to travel on your property and doing with a dog does

http://i35.photobucket.com/albums/d200/kenfelix/doginatrap.jpg


On the latter, I could have just as easily killed that dog as what I did to the skunk. And considered it a nuisance animal, and be protected by the law. In some areas, a property owner would kill it for just being on his property and all because a crying dog owner did not do what he suppose to do, as in securing his animals.


Just things to think about when you start posting stories of my dog was trap in a trap sob stories ;)

Right now 'm using a Havaheart medium sized trap to capture a cute little cottontail that is enjoying my 1,000 plus square feet in my suburban area.

He we be relocated.

I also respect trapping as population control and public saftey requires such.

A groundhog was getting into our garden and eating all of my wife's lettuce. It was my husbandly duty to capture and relocate the offenders.

All went well for the first few 'hogs.

The other day wifey comes in and tells me that I had something in my trap. I could tell by the tone in her voice that it wasn't another groundhog.....:shocked:

I would love to learn to trap, but it's illegal in WA. The Havahart style traps are legal, but as has been posted, they're not at all practical for traditional trapping.

For those of you who've trapped skunks in your cage traps, how'd you deal with it without getting sprayed?

One of the easiest ways is to put a tarp over the trap. The darkness calms them and if you move slowly and quietly they seldom spray. If they do spray, the tarp keeps it from hitting you.

I usually just talk in low, calm tones ( much the same way you'd talk to your pet) and watch thier body language.

Skunks just don't spray willy nilly, it's thier last line of defense. A skunk will posture, raise it's tail, stomp the ground with its two front paws and make chattering noises. Only when they "aim" at you are they ready to nail you.

Most of the time they calm right down if you move slowly and don't jerk the cage around.

That was the way I released this one. He was getting a little antsy with me, even started to turn around once, but eventually calmed down enough that I was able to just open the door and let him go.

I could not be a trapper because it is too much hard work! I knew a couple of AZ trappers, and those guys had their shyte together. Just preparing a trap was an art, you had to boil it to get all human scent off it, and then handle it with gloves. The placement had to be perfect, took many years of experience to get it right, not just place a trap on the ground and come back every so often to check it.

Beaver and muskrat are indeed edible and taste great. There is a market here for the meat. Otters are not edible.

At the time my pics were taken I was selling the otter furs for $100-$220 each. Beavers were getting about $25-35 avg. The muskrats I get are incidental catches, I give the muskrats to a friend who eats them. The fur was only worth about $7 each. The fur market has big fluctuations to it.

Cage traps and snares are all thats allowed in FL. The trapper I kno used them with decent success. I've got a few as well that I'm going to use this year. Just have to put them where the animals comethrough or near a den and then bait them. There's a few other tricks, but thats the basics.

cowardly act ,oh brother........pleeze :wow:

Trapping has been on the books for years. In fact it's effective at reducing numbers of many nusiance animals, requires less time and quite effective & lower cost than other means of control or elimination, reduce wildlife damage by the elimination of unwanted game animals or pests, effective at collection of animals for monitoring for diseases without killing them ( non-killing traps ), used to rid or reduce sick or otherwise dying animals ( thinning or culling the herd per se ), trapping is allowed to some degree by law in every state of the great country of America.


FWIW: If your going to come onto a hunting forum and make silly statements about things you have no clue about, do use all a favor, save you time and opinions, and do some research and knowledge gathering or :zipmouth:

Not to mention the data collected from trapped animals that helps with studying of different species that would NEVER be known otherwise.

Using my skills as a trapper I have live trapped otter for the state to be reintroduced to thier historical ranges where pollution had killed off all of their food sources. When the State wanted specimens for reintroduction they went to the people with the skill sets to help them, trappers!

They have done the same with MANY different species in Many different states.

ditto


State of FLA uses trapped animal statistics in so many way. Also when "so called" rabies epidemics occurs, we use these animals to confirm or dis-confirm these epidemics and to determine the next steps to deploy.


I also 2nd ditto that relocations efforts from trapper does a lot of good. A lot of animals that have "zero" ability to sustains them selfs due to the localization conditions, are most benefit with being trapping in a non life-threatening trap and relocated to another environment that would increases there odds of surviviability .


So I guess us cowardly trappers are doing a lot to help out and for benefit wildlife management

I never trapped but I enjoyed the pics and even if I didn't agree (which I do), I would spare you the bleeding heart BS. Glad to see the old school outdoorsman tradition is still alive.

OP, I may not be able to do that, but i do respect and appreciate you sharing pics with us. I love GT pics. Have you ever used 550 cord to make a snare? If so which one would you recommend? I haven't had much luck with that.

WOW, the Coyotes near you are very light and real pretty. Ours are much darker in color. What did those coyotes weigh in at?

NY/New England Yotes are MUCH bigger than their western "cousins." They came up over the Great Lakes and interbred with wolves. Packs of Northeastern Coyotes can take down deer - and do it often.

They can also take down most dogs and/or small children. I concur the pix are sad, but those suckers aren't good for us around here.

Well you have some good points. Coyotes did come to us from Canada, with out a doubt. Coyotes interbreed with the Gray Wolf and now are a hybrid. North East Coyotes are more wolf like where the westerns are just coyotes. North Easterns are more "pack" like but are not pack animals like the Wolves. Coyotes work in family groups, not packs. Hunting them around here is different than out west. Yes, the same basic foundation is the same but we need to tweek it and put alot more effort into it. We are dealing with a different animal than in A.Z. or Texas.

I don't weigh many of my 'yotes, most weigh between 30-40 lbs. they look bigger because they are very heavily furred.

We can't snare in NY, so I've never tried.

I appreciate the fact that even though you couldn't trap (hey, not everyone can) you respect my right to do so and offered no snide comments!

noway, that's a very handsome looking opossum. What size cage trap are you using? It looks huge!

Noway, I'm also interested in what size trap that rabbit is in. Looks to be a standard coon trap. Also what did you bait it with or did you just set it up on a run?

noway

Correct

Those are coon size cages ( I think listed at mid-size ). I know when I gathered mine their's a smaller and bigger sized and that's in the middle.

The cages are typically baited with chicken parts or sardines. I 'm trying to trap skunks at my parents place and some how a rabbit got into this one.

The opossum was kinda small insize and when compared to the cage. I rather to see a coon or skunk, but some time you'll never know what comes in, I caught everything that has 4 legs from, cat, feral-cat, skunk, coons, possum, small dog and once a big rat :wow The rabbit is a first and I do believe it was exploring.

Rabbits are incredibly curious animals. I catch my fair share at dirthole sets baited with venison, lured with coyote gland and fox urine! You'd think an animal that is constantly hunted by predators would shy away from thier scents!

Looks like you are stacking them up. I do alot of trapping in Ks. I get alot of calls from beef ranchers to get rid of coyotes that are killing cows. I also do some nuisance trapping for coons, skunks, and opposums. I am a fur trapper. Most of the trapping I do is because I enjoy doing it. The fur check is a nice bonus.

I trap Southern and Northern Oneida county and Hamilton County for the most part. All my fisher and a lot of my yotes are caught in the Adirondacks.

Used to hunt in Fulton County, Town of Stratford. Saw my first coyote up there in 1989.
