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.

    • First off, the comment I made which you replied to with a hypothesis never stated that there was proof they did anything wrong. I merely and accurately stated that there was a chance they did some of the same things and it appears that may be the case.   You said plainly that VW could have chosen the Daimler tech but chose not to. In the end doing so may very well have found them in the same boat.    
    • Haula is probably going to see a lot of playing time so I don't doubt he will have some nice years, kind of like how Brodziak scored 20 playing as our first line center. I like Schroeder as first call up or emergency player but he just can't consistently bring it in the NHL, that is no crime because when he gets hot he is fun to watch but he just can't stay there. 
    • That's some good info, Thanks.
    •   I think they're shut down, too.  Smells like no money and more welfare...    
    •   Not sure if their still producing cardboard up at that plant anymore?
    • Now Haula and Tuch will have career seasons next year.  Haula is the odds on favorite to win the Ross trophy and Tuch should have a couple Norris' in the next 5 years.     Sounds like Wild might not bring Schroeder back either.  I really hope they are contenders for a strong center or a really nice goal scorer.  
    • Good point about the center support.  I wandered out to my ground blind on one of the last days of archery season to find the roof caved in and two poles busted. 
    • MMmmm Cloquet....   Smells like money.
    • I am a little concerned with it fading but it needs to be left up for the deer to get accustomed to it so no way around that.   I assume the sun is the main culprit in fading so I'll do my best to protect against that.  One spot I'm considering is tucked into some pines which create a lot of shade, brushing it in heavily should also help keep it out of direct sun as well.   Good point about a center support to help with the snow.  I'll make sure to add something.
    • interesting? oh its raining here too!!!!!!!!!!!
