DISTANCE APART—How far apart should traps be set on an average trap-line?
Traps should not be set at regular intervals, and the distance apart would depend entirely on the signs of furbearers and the natural conditions, such as streams and lakes, ravines, swamps, etc. I have often made two sets within a few rods of each other, and again would go a mile or two before setting another trap. In heavy forests where “marten lines” are set the usual distance is something like twenty rods or about fifteen traps to the mile.
