For those of you that trap lynx, how much sign do you like to see in an area before you decide to set traps there? Also, if trapping on foot and thus somewhat limited by range, how far apart would you make sets? I don't want to bother setting too many sets in too small of an area, but I'm also not going to cover 10 miles a day in snowshoes.
I was out calling by moonlight last night and came across a few sets of lynx tracks in about 1/2 mile of walking. There was no obvious signs of an active trapline, though I'd obviously look closely if I set traps there. I've been kicking around the idea of running a few traps for 3 or 4 weeks, but want to focus my efforts as much as possible if I'm going to give it a go. The place is absolutely littered with hare tracks, so that's a positive sign, but I'm not sure what constitutes relatively high lynx activity.
