That's a nice wolverine takotna haven't tried that before I may give that a try once I can get some 330s to use. I have my crate about a foot off the ground I didn't want to put it to high because I don't know what height to set it as this is the first year I put it off the ground to try and reduce the chance of catching weasel in it. How high do you put yours off the ground yukon254? Thanks for the tips

Dang Takotna, that is brilliant!! Simple and a no brainer when you think about it...assuming that marten was caught before the wolverine showed up.

I like that double set. I have yet to catch both. I have caught one or the other but not both. Good eyes Kusko. Took me a while to see it when I was looking. I was looking for a dead marten hanging.

I also do like Clint and use the open ended Poles. Been really successful on them. However, every now and again I'll get that one "special" fox that can climb and gets up the tree.


Same set:

Yeah, I thought this would be a "fox free" set. I was wrong. smile It is a naturally leaning tree. The trap is attached to a piece of wood nailed to the tree. Bait is above it, just wired. Suprisingly no bird issues.

How often do you catch fox in your set up for wolverine? I havent seen a fox in a 330 before. Do you have any set pics on that one?

For some reason there are NO fox where I trap. They are north,south, east and west of me. About once every 5 years or so I'll cut a track. Last year I was surprised to find a small cross in a 330 wolverine set. He had climbed a couple feet up a large tree to get in it. Also one of the 2 lynx last year was in a 330.

We get a few fox in. They don't seem to shy away from it, but that could be because there are so many:





And an occasional lynx:


I don't take many pics of my sets before hand...or at least I don't have any on photobucket.

"Suprisingly no bird issues."

If you wrap your bait is burlap it still attracks predators but the birds usually leave it alone. Bloody burplap is even better.

what type of bait do you use for wolverine? I usually use beaver until i run out and then I start using lynx meat for the bait. It works for both lynx and wolverine? just curious as to what other use for the bait? Thats really cool never heard of fox ever getting caught in a conibear I was always told that they would smell the steel and not go in or anything kinda like a wolf. Those are some nice photos and nice catch Alaskan.

We caught three fox in conibears last year. Our snow conditions were not favorable for the fox to get voles and they were really hungry. I think we caught 20 fox on our line and not one was in a fox set.

I use beaver meat, but I think anything will work. Key being the lure you use to have them look for it. Been told of people just using a chunk of bone and it catching wolverine.

The fox around here are just stupid. I contribute any success on them to that, not any skill on my part. And I'll take them anyway I can get them. smile

What sort of trigger position do you use on the 330 to prevent marten from firing the trap?
