my buddy, who is kinda training me has had 4 traps taken from the same area all within 100 yrds over 10 days.
we had a little snow out there and the area was a mess of tracks but no people tracks. and a bloody drag trail.
we followed it about 1/2 mile and found one trap on the trail, it had a yote leg in it. tracking along we found the reamaining traps with grapple drags all with animal parts in them a yote, fox and two bobcat feet!. we caught up with the theif tonight.
well you guessed it it a nice tom mnt lion! he'd go about 6 foot! and since neither of us drew a lion tag this year we got to watch him run off.
i guess he thought the trapline was a free buffet!.
i've already made a few calls to freinds with tags and this weekend i suspect they will have him treed and skinned by lunch!

i'll post pics if they get him!
anyone else have any similar stories?
