I still use leg holds as drowning sets as it is still legal here untill 2007 then the traps have to be of an approved type. I have made some submarine traps for muskrat/mink and am going to make one for beaver/otter. I am going to use some snares for coyotes/cats this fall and use the leg hold snare for bear, and I do use some body gripping/connibear traps for beaver and muskrat.
Build memories, take a kid out doors and teach them about nature by interacting with it, hunting and fishing.
Learn from the past, don't dwell on it.
