There are a lot of great methods for trapping out there and the conibear is one of the best because it usually kills the animal quickly and humanly. Like all traps though there are times it doesn't. I'm sure all the experienced trappers on here will agree that trapping is something that requires some experience to get good at. So if you're thinking about using trapping as a survival method and don't have any experience then getting some experience with it is just as important as getting the traps.

And don't forget about my favorite trap - see my avatar.

Depends on the state. Some also make exceptions for using the off the ground or in box traps that reduce pet catches.

Also, some states do restrict them to water use or specific species.

The original post was with regard to survival. But when practicing trapping it is best to know your state laws.
