Wonder if the trap is for coyote relocation?, although this is usually carried out by the local animal control agency and not the DFG................locals complaining about cat disapearances?..............DonIt's only about 18" high by 12" wide by 30" deep. Pretty small even for a fawn.
I got a response in my upland game thread that said all traps are registered with DFG and that it was the trappers ID number. The trap is still there untouched and I swept the sandy area leading to it and there are no new foot prints except quail prints.The trap may have a Fish and Game tag on it, but I suspect It may be a private trap that someone got from an auction or sale. Also another agency may have borrowed the trap from CDFG because Fish and Game posts their trap locations with flyers to warn the publicView attachment 68529
I thought the same thing but I checked it out and the is absolutly no way for this trap to be seen from any vantage point in the area. To much brush is surrounding it in all directions. If it stays there for a few more weeks undisturbed I may take down the # and see if I can identify and notify the owner of it's whereabouts, I would hate to see the guy loose his trap.alot of guys make there sets so they can be checked from long distances with bino or spotting scopes. it keeps them from having to walk up on the trap every day and possibly spreading their scent around. however i trap and i know everybody has different tactics, but that trap looks like it might have been one that was forgotten or lost.
I learned at an early age that it's far more rewarding to earn the things you want and have. By the way I was chukar hunting up in your neck of the woods yesterday and those hills kicked my butt!!!!That would be a cool thing to do, i wish i had guys like you around my neck of the woods. people out here come across my traps and decide they like them more than i do and they take them. and i loose about 100 bucks.
