    this is is the FWCA interpretation of a farmer , just owning land does not make one a farmer and I see that there may be some confusion on this out there .

    I don't think that's how you're supposed to use a live-trap.

    Not sure if the trap gate lands on their tail or what but we cannot catch the bruisers, just the yearlings.
    Basic $99 live traps from home depot.
    Any suggestions ?
    If you're not insistent on live release then a can of soda pop and some fly bait will solve all your problems. Pets won't touch it.

    i had a skunk living under my deck that i trapped this past week. it took a few days to catch him, but here's what i saw.

    1. Skunk would circle the cage and almost recognize what it was.
    2. skunk would then try to take the bait without going inside.
    3. skunk was successful with most baits-- he'd just reach through the bars and grab them. what he couldn't pull through he'd chew on through the bars.
    4. instead of shooting him where there was a chance he'd go under my deck to expire, i took the bigger cage and strapped a can of salmon to the middle where he couldn't move it.

    within 3 hours i had an angry skunk who knew his time was up. sounds like you're playing cat and mouse and he's outsmarting you right now

    Does this mean that a country dweller with twenty hens must hire a trapper to protect his flock?

    No it just means that country dweller can't use body grip traps to do so , cage traps and firearms are still very viable options
    You got one shot at life where are your sights aimed today ?
