    I trapped my wife.

    She'll tell you otherwise, (she trapped me)

    I trapped raccoon, musk rat, coyote, beaver, (not to be confused with wife mentioned above), and a few minks, martins, and marmots. Wish I had a couple of the hides now. Looking to get a good beaver cape. Lately I got a few nuisance permits but the hides were spring summer, Not the best, summer.

    Depends on the type of trap, how humane it is. Not those limb crushing claw traps.

    Travis is a responsible trapper I'm sure, and it is a necessity for maintaing irrigation district systems so no complaints from me.
    As long as one lays out the sets responsibly, runs one's trapline frequently to release unwanted by-catch like pet dogs, has all traps with appropriate I.D.s engraved and conforms with all applicable laws it is should be acceptable.
    Occasionally irresponsible stuff happens, like any other activity the individuals can give it a good, or bad name. I had problems one year with a trapper who laid out a trapline and seemingly never came back. He did it on the California side of the border too where all trapping is now illegal. Caught a cougar hunter's dog in a jaw trap for a week while we had 6 feet of snow (that was an interesting rescue using tracking collar after the storm) found 4 beaver sets in the creek next spring, and Betty Boop's foot peg and my booted foot got painfully snagged in his bobcat snare set accross one of my trails. Kind of put me off permitting trapping anywhere near any built up area.
    Personally I like seeing the occasional beaver, mink, bobcat and martin running around wild more than as trim on a women's coat.
    I don't see the old timer cougar hunter anymore. For several years his exhausted dogs would come out of the hills and show up at my place, always coming from the California direction where mountain lion hunting is illegal. I'ld feed and water his hounds then call him to come pick them up. Occasionally he'll come hiking out and show off a puma pelt he always claimed he took on the Nevada side. I never reported him figuring my family and pets were a little safer, it was an ethical compromise.
