DOSE ANYBOBY HAVE PLANS ON HOW TO MAKE ONE? Have the barn wood and the tools to make, just need to see a plan. I know they are easy to make, just rather not have to go through the trial and errors of my ideals.
Thanks for your time!
Ive made some using a 5 gallon bucket...slot the sides for your 220 conibear springs.....cut a 6 inch hole in the top for the coon to go into and pop....semi dogproof...on the ground....fasten to a tree 4 ft off the ground then 100% dog proof
Thanks MIhunter and Micooner. I'll try the 5gal trick, but how do you keep the trap from falling over (coon on top of trap,wind- when the pail moves)? Wire? The wood box would blend better I think.
P.S. How did you do on coons this year? We ran about 150 this season with dogs.
