Weather your traps by leaving them outside, if using carbon steel wire or cable you can hang them under a shed or shelter so they don't rust
Before going into the bush to hunt or trap, my clothes and myself are washed in baking soda, just substitute it for wash powder in your automatic
washer. Also there are commercially available scent/UV killing wash soaps.
as a final precaution, specific to trapping, keep a couple pairs of gloves in a large gallon ziplock with some moist (not wet, but fresh dug) earth
and a couple fresh twigs of pine or cedar.
You can sit 2 feet from a trail and if you are still and camoflauged, critters will walk right by you.
