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.

    • MCI:   Sorry, but Waylon's only interests in life are ducks and my dirty laundry. I didn't start really getting into the shed hunting until recently so I didn't train him for it. I will probably do so with my next pup. He just tags along.   With the increase in popularity of shed hunting there is plenty of information out there. I know a few shed dogs and I know it's not as easy to get them excited about old bone then about a nice stinky duck, but definitely possible. The guys I know also compete in local shed competitions (staged courses) , so if you look into that type of thing there should be a group of guys with a lot of knowledge.

    •   Nice try.   You want me to rip apart your beloved Portugal?  There are hole everywhere.   First thing is first. This is a government policy, so this comes into play faster then a bullet..   " ...many of the problems stemmed not necessarily from a disagreement over the facts but a disagreement over which facts matter when it comes to interpreting the effects of decriminalisation."   Just like you Dave, only using the facts that fit your narrative.     HIV - down yes.   Due to eradicating drug dens, availability of needles, health awareness.   Deaths, over dose - yes (arguably)   Due to access of real drugs, not designer, dangerous synthetic weeds.     Homicides - yes/no Also there is no data collected for drug related homicides.       Drug users are not deemed criminals but as sick. Which immediately becomes a public expense.       -"" Goulão himself is skeptical of some aspects of marijuana reform in places like the United States, which he says can conflate medical use with recreational markets. "Sometimes I feel the promoters of this discussion are mixing things together using a lack of intellectual seriousness (Big Dave & Purple)," he said.""     This is just in 5 minutes, I'll go on doing this all day long. Leave you laying on the floor.   By the way, you just cut and paste articles. In no way way have you presented an intelligent reason why decriminalization would curb drug use.   Keep pasting,
