Most all the older men in my area trapped a little at some point in their life. They don't any more but they aren't against trapping. Most of they young folks think trspping is bad. I think it is fine and hope it is not outlawed, especially since we now have so many coyotes and need more trappers.

after all that has been said all i can say is that trapping involves much skill and woodsmanship, to learn more about it ffind a experienced trapper and tag along a time or two and i bet if you hunt and like being in the woods you will enjoy youself and learn something in the process even if you decide not to pick it up or arent interested in trapping personally, my guess is your viewpoint would change.

Well first i must say that the guy that ask WHY TRAP? Must be one of those people against trapping because i have trapped for 35 years and never used a poison steak to catch a animal, and believe me it isnt as easy as you might think to out smart a fox or coyote so try it before you knock it.

I tried trapping and it IS harder than it looks. I put 7 traps out. I checked them the next morning and 3 sprund. The coyotes sprung them first and continued on their way. I am going out coyote hunting tonight. I do not have enough time to successfully trap coyotes. I only have a few days a week of free time. I may not be able to check the traps daily. If I do get some more free time, I will trap again.
