Does anyone know how to build wire cage traps or plastic live traps for skunks or coons?

Send Kirk an email and he will set you up. You have enough of a learning curve without making it complicated. Spend your time growing the business

Coons will eat through plastic traps.

AuthorTrapper- Take a look at this thread- https://trapperman.com/forum/ubbthreads.php/topics/6019277/1 , it may give you some ideas. It is many pages long, however, has much useful information.
EDIT: Also watch this video- https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=Tk6VyMo6B64

search horse panel cage trap on youtube, not sure if that is the same link the LAtrapper has posted, but the guy building these traps keeps it simple. If you can weld then these cage traps would be a breeze. Hope this helps.

Buy a quality trap for coon. They will tear a poorly made trap apart. Then you have to catch a trapsmart soon. That isn't fun, or easy.

nmborderyote- Here is a link to a horse panel cage trap made by Wolfdog91 and posted to YouTube- https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tAohc2zZKRI. This may be (or may not be) the video you are referring to.

IMO no need to build plastic skunk traps. Cage trap with a piece of rubber or w/e you desire draped over the cage is plenty. People will argue that but knowing how to handle skunks will be key. If you're going to make a raccoon trap and you're planning on using a locking system like havahart, safeguard, or any traditional swing door trap. Be sure that your locking rods are durable, if a raccoon can slip their paws out from under the door and that door gives, it will get out. They are very strong animals for their size. JMO, IMHO..Good Luck!
