I have noticed that the reptile capture effort is really
being thorough with 11,000 Felts being deployed

Has anyone been down this road?

Only just spotted this one Jon

I would roughly estimate that I can check about 200 - 300 felts that are producing animals during the optimum morning and afternoon temperature windows, say about 5 paces apart. When we do large areas I always thought we practically snowed it at that density. I'm trying to figure out how many workers they must have had onsite to make any practical use of 11,000 felts, if my maths is right it would come out at 37 - 55 fieldworkers.
