Are you in a coyote area? How does that trap stand up to them. Any modifications on them. I have some duke 1 1/2's. Caught coon on some sets specifically made for coon last year and they held good. The coon had plenty of trees to grab and never pulled out on the back foot. One thing I did to mine was grind the pan sides so it would not hit the sides when fired. Now they sometimes get stuck under the spring covers. Therefore trap does not close all the way. Should not have done that and now I'm trying to find some new pans to fit them. Oops

yes i'm in a yote area but the woods i have them set the yotes aren't in there. The fox have the territory. My dukes are set out straight from the factory no modifications at all. The fox had its whole paw in there and wasn't going to get away. If i think i will have a chance at a yote i will put out some duke 1 3/4's that i have. I've just started to run my footholds. I just picked up trapping in the last 2 weeks. I dont have many out right now but plan to put out possibly 12 or so this weekend. I use the anchors that have a pointed edge and a slanted edge on the other side, that way when they pull it will almost never come out. You should be able to find these anchors at any trapping place. They are the ticket i think.

Are you talking about cable stakes for anchors. I use berkshire heavy duty. I even use them through the ice to snare on the cricks. Drill a 1/2" hole and pound them through. I haven't tried pounding them through the frozen hay field yet. I need to get more out also lots of tracks this morning in the new snow, but no catches.

    • Good question, why didn't they find any more?  Did those two infected deer parachute in?  Were they dropped by a helicopter?  I find it fascinating they could get as far as Lanesboro and they only find two out of thousands.  Like I said, they're bad at conspiracy.    Policing the borders?  How about a billboard, a radio ad, or a twitter campaign?  How about having the highway patrol pull over anyone with hooves or antlers sticking outta their truck box or laying on a flatbed coming across the border on the interstate?    My wealth and land ownership shouldn't disqualify me from questioning the DNR.  It used to be a staple of a free country to question your government.  Somehow now it's more important to kneel before the all knowing DNR and take whatever they want to shove in our mouths?  If this is real science and a real mitigation effort, let's have a discussion about it.  If the DNR wants to stop this spread, why are they not welcoming with open arms feedback like mine when it comes to import enforcement, and an effective PR campaign?  Cause guess what fella, lots of deer got hauled home from all kinds of places infected with CWD by uninformed folks that are going to cut up those critters and throw the brains and spinal cords out in the woods at home.    So yeah, this is either a giant hoax, or the DNR has no idea what the hell they're doing. 
    • I just checked on the fans that I bought, there 4.7 inchs sq and 1.25 thick. I thought they were 5 inch thick but I was wrong. They are 110v and I think I will put one inside on the bottom plate and see how it works. And I like where you have your fishingstar.
    • Slowly getting the outside buttoned up 
    • Yea I had that idea too 
    • I saw three or four huts in the little wet area in the lake vadnais area just off country road F.   But they would probably get upset if you set traps there...    right next to the new path that goes south along the east side of the lake. 
    • In the olden days, pigs were fed garbage.  Trichinosis was a problem.  Then laws were passed so any garbage fed to pigs had to be cooked first.  Problem went away.   According to CDC there hasn't been a case of trichinosis except from eating wild game like bear meat for many years.  
    • From a quick google search it looks like waveinn.com or the bay of e might be your best bets, if you don't want to buy from shimano.
    • Does anyone know of a place you can get spare Shimano Sedona spools?? I run braid in the summer and don't want to run it on the ice.
