Not intending any ill-will towards trappers. I like reading your stories and find it pretty fascinating.
Went to Cravasse Moraine and saw the Active Trapping sign. Always a little worried about my dog, who is often but not always on a leash. (Always on a leash when required by law, of course!) So a couple of questions to help me co-exist.
When people are trapping in a busy area, are they predominantly using snares?
From what I can tell of conibears, they are for den entrances and may be used in buckets, but are they ever just floating around?
What other types of traps are common?
I suppose trappers don't want to advertise their traps to thieves, but are they usually marked?
What else should I be asking or watching for?
I think an ermine killed a couple of my chickens, what should I use to get that ermine, but not trap my dog or chickens? (It may have also been a fox.)
