Like'm or hate'm, foot hold traps are a necessary part of wildlife management.  The foot hold traps of today are quite a bit more humane than the traps of the past.  The majority have padded jaws and are off-set or have a cut-away area in the center to allow for some slack.  Biologists routinely use foot hold traps to catch different critters to do studies on.  The animal can be held in a trap, radio collared or whatever needs to be done to them, and then released unharmed.

Granted, the "image" of a critter that's been caught in one isn't the best in the world, but they are necessary.

As hunters, everyone should realize that they have their uses, and should support their use by those who choose to engage in the activity.  The animal rights activists are nut-cases that no one really listens to anymore.  It's when other hunters start bashing a certain activity that we've got problems.  You may not like it, but don't talk bad about just because you don't do it or understand it.  O0

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.

Oh no!  you got me wrong, i know they have a place and they do a good job of getting the job done, i trapped all of my young teen life from about 12-18, i spent all my days trappin and i had a truck load of foot hold traps, snares, cages, stuck-it's and got plenty of animals in them...  Just a personal opinion of mine, i wasn't downin anyhthing or anyone that uses them, heck i still have probably 45 or the little buggers out in my shed right now.

No problem man.  O0  Just wanting to make sure that we're all on the same page on stuff.  :wink:

All too often on some other boards I go to, I hear people downing gun hunters, crossbows, coon hunters, etc.  People like this do more damage to the sport than any anti-hunter ever will.  >:(

Oh yeah i know what you mean completly, My original post had nothing to do with any kind of inhumane treatment, more just the humanity i have placed on it. 

Half of my family is Archery elitists and the other half is gun elitists....  kinda hard getting them around each other, it does a lot more bad for the sport than good, i thought my step dad was gonna disown me for steppin into the woods with a bow, but my uncle was so excited about my intrest he gave me a free bow...  no i got people on both sides pissed at me.  i am half way in between!

Utah is anti-Crossbow for some reason, i believe the only legal hunting with a crossbow can only be done by people that qualify for a disabled hunter permit...  It would make a great dynamic at the family christmas party if i told em all i was slingin a crossbow.
