Hello, I am from Washington State. We got over run with liberal bunnie huggers over the years and they stopped trapping with leg hold or coni bare or snares years past. The only trap available now are cages. I do real well with them for the cats.
My question is as follows. Since the ban most trappers here just gave up. It has been good for me due to the fact that I never run into another person on the line and the area I trap critters are booming in populations. Over the past couple seaons the Marten population has exploded. Their tracks are every where I look while seaching out new ground. I have built some cages specific for the Marten. What do I use for a bait? I trap my cats using home made bait with beaver meat tainted and Nelson Formula solution plus some extras. Skunky stuff basically. Will this work or should I use something else?
