You can see the chain is caught on the baseplate, but there is another swivel at the stakes. How is it that you guys are not getting wrists that look like that after several days?

I have the feeling that the coyotes down here pull and jerk nonstop, hours on end, while northern dogs chill out and conserve energy for periods of time.


Trust me our coyotes fight.

I find on 3 day check some are sleeping if I see them first, same here in IA on one day check, some I think fight it more, like some females are more aggressive when approached, some big males just lay there glaring at you.

Yes that coyote was a nice female, she was pretty laid back for a coyote, makes you wonder if one like that is ever much of a problem to a rancher, but they want them gone none the less.

I GIVE trappers a bad name????! Please! your an idiot. Go post this on trapperman rather than a predator HUNTING forum and see what happens. Ive been in this game trapping and calling for 35 years. Never seen or heard of any foot damage like this and neither has anyone Ive asked about it. Additionally, I would never post something like this on the internet as it only hurts trappers. But hey I just like giving trappers a bad name. Yea what ever.

Kevin you were right, there was some twin loop chain in that picture, and I agree with your choice on #3 chain, thats the same as I use.

I like those wolf fangs, but my pipe anchors seem better suited for pounding into frozen ground, I doubled 2 fangs over hitting rocks in frozen ground. I might just build more pipe anchors instead of getting another 100 Wolf Fangs. I went to 37" stakes for a lot of my snares, some ground here is soft enough to push stake in 12-20" by hand! I used my old kill poles to make the first 70 of them, need more made before fall. Then I am going to try and make a tangle pole for open grass snaring.

Never lost one in an offset trap, I'm sure if you had it by 1 toe it could, but usually if pan tension is good you will have them good enough to not pull out, and cats don't fight a trap hard like a K9 will.

before I knew enough to use pan tension, and before I had a license I had one pop out of a 1-3/4 modified nw trap. Saved me from releasing it. I have only used offsets about 30 yrs now, nothing else

Thanks fellas. I've never used one. Not sure if offsets would offer any benefit over those without offset jaws? I've wondered if offsets are used just to satisfy the animal rights scum? But maybe they're used to help disperse the power? Thanks again!
