i wouldnt be able to trap animals. I'd feel bad for the animal being stuck there.

Good One!!! But wheres the hound?!?

Nice fox.

However, you obviously haven't enough Disney movies. That could very well have been a fox some poor old widow turned out to pasture.[]

mike - you should really try it some time. It is as challenging as bowhunting, a lot harder than rifle hunting. Trapping is just an inconvenience to the animal, that grey could have been released without any damage. I started trapping this year and had a blast, traps today are designed to hold the animal without doing damage to it. I caught 2 grey fox that I had to release, the male fought a little but the female was just as docile as can be. They both took off without any signs of damage. The challenge of trapping is to get a target animal tostep in a roughly 3 inch area. If you look at the picture you can see that the fox is not hurting and pulling, it's just stuck. That fox could have been in that trap for 10 min or 10 hrs but it's not chewing it's leg off, like some people would like you to believe. He did a great job and got what he was trapping for. I'm not giving you a hard time just inviting you to try it or go out with someone who is an experienced trapper and see exactly what trapping is all about.

nice one... I've got several traps myself, but don't have the time to run a trapline. I'd have to mount that little booger.

How do you release without being bitten by the critter? I mean you have to open the trap that's attached to the leg right? No wild fox would let you get that near without trying to take your hand off.
Also as another asked.....how do you dispatch the critter and if shooting...what do you use and where do you place the shot?
