Live Traps

Recommended Posts

chucker34

I would love to try some trapping on our land but am afraid of the consequences involved with trapping the neighbor dogs that roam the countryside. For this reason, I've thought about live traps.

Do people use these to trap? Do they work? Do they work better on certain types of animals? I see the coyote or larger predator ones advertised in Sportsmanguide, but would a coyote acutally enter one of these for some meat/bait? I would think they'd be pretty leery.

I've heard of bobcats and grey fox can be caught in cages, I have one set at my house for coons and they are quite easy to catch in cages.

Good Luck,

Dave

They are very smart animals and i would highly doubt they would go in a live trap. If you use footholds most times it wont injure a dog. Usually they just lay there and r happy to see you in the mornin and they run off like nothing happened or follow you around. smile.gif

You can trap K9's in cages but it is very difficult, and your success rate will be poor. What I would do is go talk to the dogs owners and let them know you are going to be doing some trapping and to please keep a close eye on their pets. If it is public land you have just as much right to it as they do, if it is your private land then simply ask them to please keep the dogs off your land during trapping season.

Go and talk to them, thats the best option.

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
