Springing the trap

Though the aim of our trapping efforts is to catch fishers, we sometimes find non-target species in the traps.  Striped and spotted skunks, ringtails, grey fox, and squirrels are the usual suspects.  Some of them even seem to find the wooden cubby of the trap comfortable!  Last time I caught a ringtail, I opened the back door of the trap and left to do other work.  Upon returning 4 hours later, it was still resting in the box!
