Set a resort on the Lake for Skunk's, After removing sixteen, It just so happened the family staying in one of the cabins was up early, The daughter asked what I was doing, So I told her trapping nuisance skunk's. The mother chimed in quick, My daughter hates the though of that. First one I ever had come up missing, Told the owner of the resort about the trap, Guess I'll add it to the bill if it don't show up.

Lake George?

Not sure which is worse, coming upon a trap somebody broke trying to open it, or finding one missing.

16 from 1 resort?! Are you bottling up that quill?

I like the lakes up there, George, Saranac, Tupper, Placid, etc. But summers see a lot of city Libs. You shouldn't have used the word "nuisance" to describe an animal. Feminazi vegans find it highly offensive. Only humans are nuisances.

Don't forget to report it to the game warden. There's a thief out there with a trap that has your name on it and you don't know just what they will do with it.

The trap may not have gone far. Have a look in the nearby dumpster(s) before tomorrow's Monday morning pickup. How heavy was the trap, how far could it have been flung into the lake from shore?

sgs is right, a crime has been committed and even if she's a juvie it's worth making official.

If she loves skunks so much, leave her a live one in a cage so she can release it smile. Donít forget to hang a game cam.

. The owner should be expecting that since we usually have it on the contract/agreement he should have signed. ďTrap Damage or theft is the responsibility of customer/landowner ď is how ours was worded.

Funny thing is, After 24 years, This is the first time someone messed with a trap, Thought I was pretty good at keeping them out of sight.

Me too John, but I had my first theft in my 3rd year of biz.
Then was advised from some pro's to lock cages to trees even.
Had many damaged by anti neighbors which upset the customer, but the contract put replacement on them and reparations from neighbor was up to them,

I've been nuisance trapping for 10+ years now and have only had 2 traps lost. While the financial loss did kind of grind on me, the idea that some scumbag had a trap with my name on it bothered me more. I've had no problems concerning those traps but I still wonder.

Bid the cost of the most expensive trap and cover that you like plus shipping and tax as was stated. I do that as needed.
