I snapped my line tonight just before deer season. It's where I hunt and it what the land owner likes. My question is it's only 7 sets. I would like to leave them there until after deer season and remake the set. Will that throw up any red flags to any animals with a trap sprung sitting in the bed .

NO, when I was still trapping I use to do it over the firearm season every year. I didn't want to deal with running traps during gun season, nor did I want to take the time away from my own deer hunting. When I remade the sets, it wasn't uncommon for us to catch critters the very next night. If it was where I was deer hunting, I'd still bait and lure some (maybe not everyday). kind of like pre-baiting for when you set again.

In Alabama if you trap, you trap thru hunting season..
Animals can be caught it heavy hunted areas..

Won't hurt a thing, animals don't know what a trap is or does. Deer hunters will make them disappear though.

I am leaving traps out through deer season. I will check on the dark before I go to my deer stand and again on my way out... I know I stand a chance to loose some fur to trigger happy hunters but if my sets are not in then I am sure I won't get any...
