Squirrel trapping tips

In trapping squirrels, set a steel trap on the upper rail of a fence near where they frequent; set a pole with an ear of corn, or some other squirrel food fastened to the end of it, up against the side of the fence, leaning in such a position as to spring the bait over the trap at a height of six or nine inches; when the squirrel reaches to get the bait he will get into the trap.
