I have a trap/fence built near a very small lake. It has 6 or 7 pit traps in it. Last night I went to check it and, Lo!, I see a reindeer between the trapline and the lakeshore. I'm hoping that I can stampede it through a trap. It runs faster than I can track it, but, I find another deer, struggling in a pit. When I got closer, Wow!, the next trap down ALSO has a reindeer in it. I check the last two traps and the last one has a dead reindeer next to it AND a wolf trapped within the pit!

I'd love to know the story behind this event! After all the skinning, butchering (had to go back the next day for the last deer), tanning, and smoking, I took too long getting to the wolf pelt and it wound up harsh, but the three deer came out as decent pelts.
