    Default How long in between checking.....

    Your trap line? I have always wanted to get into trapping but not sure if I have the time to ethically run one.

    Ethically? What do YOU consider "ethically"?

    Some species can be trapped with killer traps, snares, drowning. Plenty of opportunity to run a line and not have animals waiting in traps that are still alive.

    I work a job and can only get out once a week. I generally run a fairly serious line using footholds, snares, and body traps. Works for me.

    Default Once a week....

    If temps stay below freezing, I can go longer as I only use conibears and target marten, mink and weasel. I also carry snares in case I run into canine sign.

    Well in my mind once a week is "ethical", but not sure if that was a realism or not, never done the trapping thing but always wanted to. By the response I've got here and else where I guess I could do this.
