I remember my granddad making something like this for me when I was a kid. I’m thinking of doing the same for my son. Have any of y’all messed with “figure 4” traps?

My Grand daddy and I caught birds with a trap like that when I was a boy.


If he isn't going on the wall, let him walk...

Finally got it finished up. Took a couple tries to get the trigger right. Will test it out this weekend.

Kids in trail life made some of these

I suggest you spin the trap 90 degrees at the set point, that way the figure 4 piece that gets between the trap and the ground does not have as much of an affect of keeping the trap off the ground, other words make you trigger point touch the sides of the trap that do not touch the ground. If you get a coon I think it will take a lot of weight on top to keep it in. Post the pics for us when you get a catch.

If you don't have any luck with this route, building a wood box trap for coons and squirrels is simple and I know they are effective.

Nice. World would be a better place if more Dads taught their kids skills instead of just buying them an iPad

Yeah, I actually thought of that too after looking at the pic. We’ll see what happens.
