The young trapper in PA had a coyote in a leg trap last fall, it wasn't pretty. The animal suffered for many many hours. We actually thought about shooting it with an arrow, but considered the law possibility so we didn't hunt those two stands that were close to the trap. Seems like a snare or something else might be better. I'm not against trapping in fact its a necessary conservation tool, it just caused us some ill feelings for the animal in that situation.
