This one i caught it in a Duke 1 1/2. I run duke 1 1/2's and 1 3/4's for foot holds.

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.

    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
