Ive been thinking about getting a live trap,almost bought one on E-bay, I have an occasional hen or roo that gets gone every so often, at night or early morning . I free range all of mine they roost in the trees, I know I cant catch an owl with one, but I don't think that's what it is Im finding them and all is gone is the head, I think its a raccoon or a cat their all around where I live. maybe walking up my 2x4 walk to the nearest limb like my chickens ,any way back to the subject. I also have skunks or pole cats around where I live, I use to hunt raccoons when I was younger and some times our dogs would tree a pole cat in a hole and I couldnt get within 100 yards of them, so how do you get a pole cat out of a live trap. with out him spraying.
