Well i went out today to check my first ever line (5 snares) to see if i had anything. Well i checked the first 3 and "as expected" i had absolutely nothing. This is my first time ever trying to trap, so my anticipation is high but my expectations aren't. I found a moose that was dead last weekend and had been dead for at-least a week or so and set 2 snares around it. Well as i approached it i saw my first snare was still there sitting pretty but i couldn't see the other one at all. As i inspected the area i could see where someone had walked down to exactly where i had set the snare and the tree i had attached it to was broken at the point where i had attached it. There was a nice mowed down area where i had somehitng, but with all the moose hair and lack of snow i couldn't tell what i had. So success on my first ever check for someone else... Kinda has to piss you off when you are so excited just to see that kind of evidence left behind.... Maybe next time i guess.
