In the morning, Wild Bill and attempts to find a barn where he is supposed meet Willy to pick up some materials for the trap, but his hand drawn map is of little help. Three hours later, Wild Bill eventually shows up at the barn, where Willy has been waiting. Although Willy is mad Bll is late, they get to work on designing a trap. Willy's idea is a circle of fence with barbed wire at the top to prevent the Sheepsquatch from climbing over because sheep wool is easily stuck in it. Wild Bill likes the idea, as he is familiar with barbed wire during his services in the marines. In the barn, which a cattle farmer had said they could take what they want from, the pair find lots of chain link wire which they will use for the trap.
Later, after Trapper has recovered from his eye injury, he, Buck, Huckleberry, and Jeff meet their second eyewitness, a hunter named "Rocky" at his private hunting grounds.

Meanwhile, the rest of the team meets with their third eyewitness, a craftsman named David, who has seen the Sheepsquatch.

At the trap, Willy and Bill have finished putting the barbed wire at the top, a feature which makes this Bill's favorite trap, taking him back to his war days. With the trap done, the rest of the team arrives, and Buck baits the trap with roadkill deer. Willy demonstrates the trap, which works flawlessly, so the team prepares for the sun to go down to begin the hunt.
At midnight, Trapper splits the team into two; Buck, Jeff, and Bill, and Trapper, Willy, and Huckleberry. The plan is to drive the Sheepsquatch from the south of the deer trail, to the north, into the trap. Soon into the hunt, Trapper notices the woods are strangely quiet, all the animals are silent.
