Baiting the traps?

    It looks like he is scattering something on the ground. Do you sometimes bait the traps?

    Seems that might make subsequent spatial modeling a bit problematic, but it would let you look at more animals...

    He's actually cutting some grass with one of our hand-held "slashers." We don't bait the traps because we don't want to bias any patterns of habitat use by the animals.
