[told in person] I frequently hunt for chukar. A few years ago I was hunting with 3 friends. We all had our hunting dogs with us. We were in a remote area. I suddenly heard my dog screaming. It took a while to find him; he was caught in a trap and pulling with all his strength to get free. While my friends and I were trying to free him, we heard another dog screaming. My friend’s dog was also caught, in another trap in the area. 
We eventually managed to free both dogs who were terrified and exhausted. 
There are many of us hunters who do not want to deal with traps, and think they should be much more tightly regulated.

Not the hunting dog in the story, but a different hunting dog found wandering loose and injured from a trap.
