TB1, I trap all private ground. All is Deer hunted for sure. But I don't know who's hunting there.
Don't feel right leaving my equipment behind. It's a personal thing, I guess.
If you are trapping on one single property, nothing wrong with leaving them as long as land owner knows about them.
We all have a different agenda. So do what you feel comfortable with. Don't overthink this.
Sometimes my traps are strung out on alot of properties. And I want traps home with me during Deer season. Likely I will be working a different line (different direction) after Deer season anyway.
Personally, the two week break gives me a chance to trap Muskrat, Mink & Coon, catch up on flesh'n & boarding, help the nephews cut up Deer and so on.
I pull. Then regroup, review, recharge, reload and reset.
