I recently purchased some land in a state that has endless wilderness. My plan is to move to this state within the next 2 years, work in a smaller city but spend the summers building my cabin on this land plot. I'll just go there for the summers. I've done a lot of big/small game hunting but never trapping. My buddy is trying to convince me that I should trap on the land to get more small animals but I've always seen trapping as cruel and painful to the animals. I love hunting but only legally and ethically. I told him that I'm not a fur seller and I have no interest in eating fur bearers so I'd rather not kill them. He's trying g to convince me that it's not as I humane as it sounds and that the animals you trap are good eating. Sort of a stupid question but what's your opinion on trapping?
