I have done a very little bit of trapping but was really interested in looking through the trap line pics.  I have caught a few coons and some mink in some foot hold traps and had to wack them with a bar.  Not he most enjoyable thing to do on my end. 

Is there a better way of finished off the trapped anyimal than wacking it on the head.  Is it ok to shoot it with a .22 or some other trick other than hitting them on the head? 

If that is the most common method, maybe trapping won't be for me. 

thanks

There was a thread up not too long ago about dispatch.   It got a little heated, but you might try searching for that.   I don't know if it is still around or not.   To answer your question though, Yes, you can dispatch with a .22.

I shoot everything with a .22 LR except bobcats & skunks. For bobcats I use a catch pole & skunks I inject them with Nite-nite juice so they don't spray because I collect the essence.

I used to have the same problem until I saw how Bob Wendt does it. It is really easy, I remove the glands with a scalpel or razor blade then use a syringe. That way you know if you got it all. Bob shows it on his fox video, which has a lot of good info in it.

Water animals I use body grips or drowning rods. Land trapping is a .22

If your destined to shoot them i would not suggest using a .22 lr bullets. I would use the .22 cb shorts or similar ammo. It will do the job fine and make less of a mess of things.

X2 on the .22 shorts!!!  few steps back for the animal rib shot on coyotes and fox and most of the time it does not exit!!! you can also do head shots too! less mess i think in the ribs, just behind the shoulder. skunks, really far and up wind!!!  ;D

I catch a lot of skunks and someone on trapperman said you can superglue a 'certain spot' shut so that nothing can leak out. Works like a charm. Kinda strange when you think about it, but it works.
