just bait active game trails with salt-brine dipped cambium, ideally at trail intersections and/or near water, when you see a bait being taken more than once, build the "v" of brush, and put more bait inside the V, at the apex. when they still take the bait, add the spring pole with the stakes, but dont tension it, when that doesn't bother the critters, add the trigger-pegs (hooked to nothing). When that doen'st bother them, tension the springpole, but not in a way that will let it be triggered. When that doesn't bother them, set the trap. Each change will have to be left there for 2-3 days. By then, you'll have adequately cold weather to help you preserve a big animal's flesh and you'll have plenty of fish income from the netting. When the traps are not set, you dont have to run your trapline twice a day. Animals are skittish about new things in their world. You want them relaxed when they enter the trap for real and you dont want to have to be wasting your time checking traps when you should be making and setting netting. for fowl and fish.
