Today while checking my line with my trapping partner, i noticed my trap with a drag missing. There was a lot of torn up area from the drag. As we walked down the road to checkl the rest of the traps, there was two cats skinned out and left in the road right where we wold see them. I dont understand you took my fur why take my trap too.

No matter what you do in life there is always going to be the bad guys!! Don't join them and it will pay off for you one day. One day you will hear about the cats they took! Then Settle up!

I wish we could use some old fashion law and order to deal with these type and their behavior. If I were king, things would be different. I've always said I was born 100 years too late. I once found a beaver trap set on private property where only I had permission to trap. The trap held a beaver in it at the time I found it. I pulled the trap and put the trap and beaver in the back of my pickup. An hour later, I ran into the the old man who had set the trap. He appoligized to me about the encroachment, and I gave him his trap and beaver. As time progressed, we later became good friends and one year partnered up and caught a lot of fur. This isn't always how these things turn out, but in this instance it did. Live by the "Golden Rule" and life will be much happier for you. I'm not a real big believer in Karma, but sometimes I am, and I've had a lot of good things happen to me compared to the few bad things in my live, so I figure I'm still way ahead at this point in life.

Had a couple of those stick catches this year. And had something stolen as well don't know what but definately something was in that set. Caught a yote in that set a check before.... man does that piss me off.




Was also on my families ranch... which is all marked Private Property. Not that it matters though.

You would think that on private property, you would not have this sort of problem. Were there tracks in the snow so you could see where they entered the property?

They had to of done it before the snow because on my last check I had no snow and it didn't snow until the night before this check. NO Tracks!! Wish I could have caught him. Next year I will trap there again and have trail cams set up to catch them.... they will be back.

I just picked up two trail cams as they are on sale. great price and easy to use. next year will be interesting. I may just set them out now until the end of the season just to see what i may catch. Thanks NVSage, it always sucks to have that happen, especially when you have fur also taken

sad thing around here(as well as everywhere else), it is other trappers, i know for a fact that one guy got caught by the trapper carrying a coyote and his trap out of the area he was trapping, then tried to tell him he was bringing it to him, bad day for him, bet he was sore for a couple days
