Warrior, myself and Tom Morelock were trapping beaver one winter and the state fur bearer biologist came down to meet with us to pick up some carcasses for a bobcat study he was doing. That morning he went with us to check traps and I caught a goose in a number 4 longspring, the goose was still very much alive and I wasnt crazy about taking it out so Bruce asked me what I was going to do? I have learned to think on my feet to get out of stuff so I said "im gonna shoot it in the head and pitch it in the weeds and reset the trap", he looked me in the eye and said "thats illegal Travis" so I replied "I aint gonna tell nobody about it!". Before I could say I was joking he rushed over and took it out for me! I love it when a plan comes together. Tom, I have a couple of floating cages but they are set right now, if it can wait a few days you are more than welcome to use them just let me know.
it is not a stupid question if you do not know the answer
