run the traps
 v. phr.— «A related metaphor is run the traps. A hunter will check his traps in the morning to see what animals were caught; a reporter will “run the traps” of his sources to check out a story.» —by William Safire Safire’s New Political Dictionary , 1993. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)
