I haven't used a steel trap for over fifty years.When I was in high school in El Paso, I used to set them out in the desert for coyotes and rabbits.
I went out to check the traps early in the morning, before school, and carried a bow and some blunt arrows. Then, when it was time to go to school, I took my bow and arrows and put them in my locker,
I bet a kid couldn't do that now days!

It's sad, but you're right.

Not In The City
Half of us drove our pickups to school with at least one long gun in the back window gun rack.

It was a non-event. Daily occurrence, especially during deer season.

In the fall we all carried our rifles and shotguns and hunted our way to school put our guns and ammo in our locker, when school was out, we would hunt our way home, I could not tell you how many times the coach or the principle , came along and hunted rabbits or duck with us, when deer and elk season opened we could take days off to hunt, with the understanding we would turn in our home work complete when we came back to school.
I am sad to say those day's are over, it was a great way to grow up. Rio7
