Thanks Hal, thats about what I figured.I'll work on a semi correct email to them.
(That's the kind of crap you get when non-trappers try to publish trapping articles) - I forgot to mention that the fellow writting the article stated this was his first attempt at coyote trapping. Deeply disturbing that it would be published, I'd have probably believed it a year ago. So once again, thanks to you and everyone here.
