Sampling comments: "Our trials occurred during summer 2006 (Aug–Sep) and during late winter–early spring 2007 (Mar–Apr). We evaluated 11 attractants and one control (12 treatments total)" and monitored the baits using Reconyx digital cameras; "We placed scent stations at 200-m intervals within 30 m of roadsides and determined orientation relative to the road (right or left side) randomly by flipping a coin... During each season (Aug–Sep and Mar–Apr), we monitored each treatment for 30 days (i.e., we used 360 scent stations during each season)"
rodents and lagomorphs were captured 28 and 10 times respectively but not identified
