Funny you should mention that... Last week, one of the guys brought in a couple of traps from a closed job, then instead of putting them in the garage, he left them by the door - he said the clicker wouldn't open the door, battery was dead. The next day I came in from doing something and noticed a squirrel nosing around the trap. I waited a bit and sure enough, he went in. No bait, but he was LOOKING! Trap wasn't set, so as soon as I got out of the car, he ran away.
So yes, you can put them into a favored place and they'll find them. Our property is small also, so they will adjust to that. Very adaptable animals, I'm always surprised at what they can do!
Go get 'em!
