Which brand to get? Time to thin out the urban coon population in my back yard.

I've heard the lil Griz is the best for the $.

I also heard of a a great alternative.

Use #1 coilsprings. Put a thin sponge w/ non fish/meat bait (oil of anise, grape jelly, syrup, etc.) under the pan. Bed the trap solidly and stake.

THEN>>> put a 6" wide by 8" long PVC pipe over/around it on end. On top of the pipe, have a cap glued on w/ a 1.5" hole cut in the middle. Make sure the pipe is "screwed" in the ground a little so it can't be easily tipped or pulled off, but leave just enough room for the trap jaws to freely close.

If you don't worry about trap theft, leave the white top exposed for eye appeal, or cover all but the hole to make nearly invisible.

Most trappers know that the #1 on a front foot catch is great because it leaves too little room for the coon to cause much self inflicted damage and is very strong for holding power.

Plus its a much cheaper alternative. I've also heard of a larger clumsier version w/ 3/8" plywood and a 1.5" hole as well.

    • You can't even follow a conversation in your own head. According to has always been a zero sum game. Right now if the polls are correct, it is not either Trump or Hillary.....a vote for Trump or Johnson are completely the same.....neither are going to win. So once again .....please choose......either are the polls wrong, or are you going to waste your vote? It is a simple question asked for the second time.
    • Keep that knee on the ground.  I have never once said anything about the poles whether Trump was up or down.  So it's either Trump or Hillary.  Have to choose one.....sorry you're mad bro.
    • Yep, we are now at the point that Del and D2E have to say either the poles are wrong, or not vote for Trump. Because according to their own logic.....if the poles are would be a wasted vote. So what will it be? Have to choose one........
    • Heavens no.  Del doesn't believe in wasting his vote.
    • Not to worry LRG.  You can pick on me all you want.  I guess I'm in the same thought pattern as Getanet,  a house is not a priority now.  I know quality cost $$$.  One thing that I think is crazy is the amount of new houses that are available for sale.  At what point does the market saturate?  How many of these houses financed for 120 months will be repoed or sold at a loss?  A fishouse in every driveway?  Seems like it.   I wonder how much longer some of these builders will be around?
    • That's my description of our O line... I have faith in our coaching system that they will revamp their scheme...  This was like a fall apart game, it was bound to happen. Come on guys, get it together!!!! We will demolish the bears. 
    • Looking at getting the pro xt cabin. ..   Do the seats stay in place or do you have to remove them and put in the sled to get down to the 20.5" packed measurement?    How well do the square tubes work when cold? 
    • That's for sure.  But you sure are ready to point out any spelling mistake made by anyone else.   #hypocritesandfrauds
