first time was years ago fox trapping , I had a framers wife call all mad that I didn't check my traps for 3 days , I told her I have check the traps every day , she said no , because there a fox in the traps and it's been there for three days , I told here I was by there already today and got the fox , she said I lied because she is looking at a fox in my traps , luck for me I had talk with her husband , 3 fox 3 days in a row, yesterday I was out early and checking traps ,and got a beaver on the county job , it was about two hours later I get a call, from county guy and tells me I got a beaver, I tell him I already pick it up ,he say that he is looking at it , he say he can see water on road where the beaver cross the road and got in trap in the ditch , laugh

Have received that call a lot but it’s probably because I check most of them before the sun is up.

This year, I had checked traps and had a coyote in a trap and another trap had a coyote in it for a bit but was empty. The rancher called and said I had a couple of coyotes. I told him it was only one but I had picked it up the evening prior. He said they were still there this morning. I thought he was confused on the day and had seen the two coyotes before one took off. I went back out and there they were. Two shiny coyotes. One had a dent on its other foot. It had a bad memory. Lol.

My calls usually go like this " Hey Space you have a fox in a snare back of my field. No need to hurry I finished it off for you with my shotgun". (at 10 feet!!)

Oh my. I hate that. Or, “He was about to get away so I shot him (with a 30-06). You get there and there’s a full pad catch.
