Default trapping??

I have been reading up on trapping and considering it, but I am just not sure I have it in my to trap and kill something I am not going to eat. That said I have a question.

I was headed to the deer stand on Saturday morning at 6 and someone had put a trap on our lease and caught a red fox. I saw it on the way in and took pictures and all. On my way out at 10ish was the fox was still in the trap. What is proper procedure on this? I thought if you put it out at night you ran it in the morning. Don't know if I should be pissed or not..

kindly reply guys..

Default trapping

I trapped when I was a teenager and absolutely loved it....many moons ago. I think the frequency you are required to check traps in Indiana (where I lived) was 24 hours; most likely it varies by state. I always ran the traps at day break thinking that a catch would happen overnight so that would minimize the time plus I just couldn't wait to get out. Sometimes I did it in the evening, too. I never felt dry land sets were humane and many animals will chew there legs off to escape. Also, with dry sets you have the risk off trapping a dog or cat. With fox though, it may be necessary to do dry sets. At that time there were traps that killed instantly, too, which I favored (Conibear was the brand name).
