    "Live Traps"...wonder if this type trap is specified for all the critters listed? Approaching a skunk in a live trap could be interesting.

    I tried trapping a very large family of chipmunks, using a live trap; not good, they were able to set off the trap, steal the food and scamper off. Best method was a large rat trap and peanut butter.

    Have other states implemented a similar plan and what were their results? Iowa? North Dakota? Kansas?

    Caught that, did ya? The folks actually behind this idea have likely done very little "live trapping".
    Nor are they probably very skilled at differentiating between "trapped" varmint tails vs. roadkilled..........................

    I have a rope tied to the trap, I put tarp over the opening of the culvert so as I pull the trap out of the culvert the tarp covers the trap.

    Dennis: How does one dispatch the critter? Especially skunks...

    I guess it is a good idea, but knowing human nature there will be a LOT of cheating, like have family or friendsin other states killing varmits and brinh them acrosd state ines for the $10.00 bounty.
