The incident above happened some years back. I'd check the trap, it would be tripped with hog sign in it, but no hogs.
He finally left a smear of mud on the top board as he went over, and I realized what was going on. This trap is only about 6'x8' with 4' wooden sides, so he was doing this flat footed, with no running start.
Note the grown over bullet hole in his skull. Glad I didn't meet him the next day, I'll bet he had a headache and was even more bad tempered than usual.
