nobody wants to walk up and see any animal with its foot all tore up from the trap..........thats why informed people take their traps and use a diegrinder with sand paper wraps and take the sharp edge off them when they aare new and then weld 1/8" round rod to the top and bottom of the jaws....then they dont have tore up feet and 99% of the time can let anything go they want and not worry about it being hurt.......what most people dont do is throw down poisned bait and let anything that bites it get killed......get some education....PERIOD!!!!!!! rolleyes

Actually, REID thank you very much for having some usefull information. I would love to find out more about the trap modifications you are talking about, I am a welder and work in a machine shop, any adjusting of these traps would be pretty easy to do and it would be great to try it out!

For the education part... thats why I came here, didn't work well though frown

Except for what you are talking about here.

soft jawed with round rod on the top only on a lil double coiled 1 3/4 with the jerk spring attached directly to the trap....they are harder to bed with the spring directly attached to the trap but always have the springs give regardless if the animal wraps up all your chain on trees or anyting else........yes there is blood but what u cant see is it was from him biting his toes and the trap hasnt even broke the skin and anyone who looks at this photo and this dogs paw knows full and well if i let this dog go he would have been fine....this lil trap wasnt set for a yote but a fox its just the yote got in it......





another one of the small traps with a tow catch and not a drop of blood with the soft jawing done to the trap.......



perfect above the paw catch mark with a #2 Bridger soft jawed and round rod above and below the jaws and again the skin isnt even broke........



like NIKE.........just do it!!!!!!BET!!!!!! thumbup1

After finding out a guy I worked with trapped for years, he gave me some pointers. I built a couple snares with washer snare locks.

I set four on monday night just before a big snow storm. I knew they were in a good spot. I wasn't sure about my snare abilities but I went for it. I just pulled my first traped coyote out of the first snare I ever set! Beautiful golden colors female. The snare lock did its job, and it didn't look like the coyote struggled much.

The other three snares were "tripped" or nocked aside, whatever the trapper's term is, but a coyote walked right through all my sets. At least I got one! I made some improvements and I will see how things look ether next monday or on tuesday. These dogs seem to pass through this small area I am trapping almost twice a week, about ever four days there is fresh evidance of 4 or 5 coyotes moving through the area.

I wish I had some pictures. Skinning that dang thing was frusturating but I got it done with only making a very small hole right between the front legs, so no worries. I put it on a stretcher and everything went great. This turned out to be a larger female than expected the pelt ended up being 41" to the base of the tail.

Great looking pelt, and it helped this was one clean girl. No smell, no burrs, no bugs, no nothing.
