I favor the koonce cage trap...sets flush with a hole if need be...tough enough for the biggest coon and when you lift the door it sets itself...the back door is an awesome feature too....livetrap.com has em for $77.50 each

I do agree the Koonce traps are easy to set. But as far as catching and holding I've put my money on Comstock's and Williams' traps. I have sold everything else I owned including several Koonces. Just my opinion.

The measure of a man is what he will do when he knows he won't get caught.

These are the ones for me in most cases.

I prefer the one that's right for the job. No one brand or model does it all.

I use Safeguards, Tomahawks, Comstocks, Advanced, WCS and Freedom Brand.

For a single door with rear release application my preferred brand is safeguard.

Leave it to Joshua to come up with a trap we don't own. And it looks like a pretty decent cage at that. I was washing cages today

( Yes, Mr. Jameson, apparently I'm the only one allowed to clean cages around here ) and putting them on the rack. Here's what I

noticed: We have some of the old style Havaharts, Plasti-catch, Safeguards, Wickenkamps, Advanced, WCS, and Tomahawk. I think some of

the guys must be hoarding the Comstocks. Joshua, if I could only have one cage, it would be the 9x9x28 inch Tomahawk professional. I

have caught everything from chipmunks to 30 lb. raccoon in some of mine. ( Okay, the chipmunks weren't on purpose but they were still

in there )

I haven't used half of my traps yet, but my reached for is my 30inch advanced trap. For squirrel I use flush mount panel trigger comstocks, and to be honest, for skunks o had to pick up some advantek tractor supply co traps that do the job fine. They,are still Chinese junk tho

Hard to beat the Northern Industries T101232P for price and quality. $62.00 for a GAW 1/2" wire spring loaded door trap.

We own over 50 of these now and have had no problems.

For racoon, I don't think the cages from Little Wolf Trapping Supply can be beat. Cumberland's is about the only retailer Brian uses, if you wish to buy from a dealer, otherwise he has a fb page.

I like the 8 x 10 x 28” Wickenkamp (1 x 1/2”) for baited sets and 9 x 11 x 24” Comstock’s for hole sets. I love the easily adjusted pan tension afforded by the torsion rods in the Wickenkamps. The Comstock’s are the best thing that ever happened to catching critters under sheds and decks.

I build my own squirrel traps, either pan triggered for baited sets or panel triggered for hole sets.

For 90% of trapping with cages, it is a Comstock trap.

Mostly safeguards of all sizes a few comstocks and advanced traps. All good equipment for most any application.
