    Default Trapping in your back yard

    I just finished reading "Live from your yard" in the August issue. I don't see any mention on how to dispatch a critter in a live trap if you want to eat it. Just curious as I wouldn't eat a Squirrel from this hood...................Daniel
    It's not the mountain ahead that wears you out, it's the grain of sand in yer shoe.

    In most suburban areas squirrels survive off of peoples bird feeders and peanuts that people put out for them. Makes them fat and tasty. Another thing the article didn't mention is to make sure you don't leave your trap open at night, unless you don't mind dealing with a skunk in the morning.
    Focus on integrity and eventually your name will be its own currency.

    A squirrel committed suicide in my rain barrel.

    Yes I had to deal with a Skunk trapped in the daylight.

    UGH! Skunks are such a PITA! The one animal you don't want in your live trap is probably the easiest animal to trap.
