dog proof for coons

12 posts in this topic

Anyone have a preference for dog proof for coons. I am extending my trap lines next year but must go with dog proof in these areas. Also does anyone have a favorite live trap of choice?

There are a number of them on the market and they vary greatly in price. For speed I prefer lil'griz getter or egg trap. Price wise the DP is half the price but take more time to set. Hope that helps.

Nothing but good from what i hear with griz getters. I plan on getting a dozen. They are expensive, but keeping the [PoorWordUsage] out of your traps might be worth it. Most skunks don't get caught, but people claim some do.

Grizz's are the best out there. Supply is short as Gary Bonnet is also in the logging bussiness and his father has health problems, Gary hand makes each trap.. Get them while you can.. Most supply houses are out.

My friend near Pine Island caught 983 coon in all Grizz's last fall in 4 weeks

Now that is some intense coon trapping to maintain an average of 35 coon per day for 28 days. I've busted my tail in a good year to average 20/day for a week and it nearly killed me. This guy must be made of steel.

Everyone is out of grizz, but the black hole adn trapmaster seem to work well. If you want a good dela by a few dozen black holes before they are all gone.

Are the Grizz's cat proof. One of the farms I trap there are cat all over the place. The farmer said kill them all, but they are his wifes.

not cat proof, but lowere your chances of catching a cat. More cat proof than a 22o with fish. You can use anise or sweet bait to lower you odds even more.

    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
    • Well there are a lot of ways to do it.   I'm going to bolt it down through the counter top, using the bolt holes for the leg levels. The idea of using straps and d rigs would look like dump and Be pretty pointless........it would be has much work having to ratchet strap the thing every time I was going to move vs setting it down on the floor.
