What trap are you using ? If they make a trappers cap to fit it give it a try.It let's you really pack inside the jaws without getting pinched. Not for high production trapping but will help you get better at it.

I bought one for 550's after I had a coon digging everything up in a sandy spot this summer. Don't use it all of the time but have it when needed

Big one k bush. I caught a big male a couple years ago that was 43#. Takes a big one to break the 40# mark.

That's a big one K bush! Congrats!

37lbs I believe is my heaviest. It takes a really, really big coyote to go 40+.

I hear folks talking about how big coyotes are all the time and 99% of the time there's nothing to do but smile and nod. I figured coyotes up North and out West would be much larger but read a thread on trapperman several years ago with a bunch of high volume coyote trappers and 30lbs is pretty much nation wide average for coyotes.

I’m using the #2 Bridger dogless.
I need to order a few things so I’ll check on a trappers cap too.
Thanks!

Don't think they make one for Bridger dogless. I tried some single gang switch boxes but couldn't find one bug enough

Got another one at the bait stick location. That makes 3 coyotes and a bobcat in that trap. It's now a flat set with a transplanted clump of grass instead of a bait stick. They've chewed up two bait sticks LOL

Figured I'd show the remake. Transplanted a clump of grass for backing and punched 3 holes.

Good job. I hope to work on some coon, coyote and hogs when season goes out. Got a few beaver to catch until then

Man you’re on em! Just set 3 traps right by the house. Had a chicken massacre the other day. They finally got brave.
Kind of wondering if a local dog killed the chicken though. Ate it right there by the coop. I figured most wild animals would haul it off before devouring. Either way I have seen fox and yotes on camera so I’d like to take them out!


Don't blame me for your bad decision-
