    I confess that I used to dread hunting season because it seemed unsafe to walk in the woods. The first thing I did when we bought our house 35 years ago was post "No Hunting" signs. But with each November I became increasingly uncomfortable judging and being wary of my hunter neighbors. Those I...

    Trapping has been relatively successful, although experts warn that unless an entire group-known as a "sounder"-is captured at the same time, any escapees will learn from the experience and likely avoid getting tricked again.
