Just need to vent a little. I wasn't going to trap this year but a neighbor asked me to get rid of the muskrats in his pond. Since I was setting his pond, I decided to set a small section of stream nearby that I usually trap. When I went to set the stream, I noticed a trap on one end of the bridge where I enter the stream and noticed boot tracks heading upstream. I decided to make one set at the opposite end / opposite side of the brige and set down-stream since there were no tracks there. Yesterday, as I was walking back upstream after checking my sets, I came to the bridge and saw a kid (15-16 years old) with my trap in his hand. When confronted, he began to studder and said, "I have a set over there." I went on to "explain" that I saw his set but had enough respect to not go near it and went on to describe what I should do to him for attempting to steal my trap. He handed over my trap, without appologizing and said he would remove his trap. I told him that that was not necessary, as he was there first. However, I must have made an impression because I turned around for a few seconds to make my set over, heard a snap, and he and his trap were no where to be seen.
