Should I have pulled the trigger?

Second day after setting my trap, when I went to check them, walked to the end of a fence row and out in the middle of the field about 50 yards was a nice red. Had the .22 and put the cross hairs on him, barked, and he sat down and looked right at me. Cross hairs right on the chest, getting ready to pull the trigger.........put the gun down and told him I will see him in my trap. Just could not pull it. So many times I have hunted them and never shot one, had him in my sights, but couldn't do it.

Every action has a reaction, it is what we do with the reaction that makes our action successful.

nothin wrong with your choice. If you get him in one of your traps, im sure it will be much more rewarding for you

Sounds like you did what was best for you. I may have done the same thing-never know 'till it happens, and might make a different choice on another day.
