That would certainly be my first choice. Probably my only choice. But, as far as I know there is only one forum member who has in fact, trapped Siberian tigers. Maybe we will get some valid input from him.

please tell me it's not Boco. laugh

Everybody knows that you have to catch a tiger by the toe.

But you have to stay there and wait because if he hollers you have to immediately let him go.

It is but I think it's pretty cool. Unless it's running 50MPH and your running 7MPH. Hope you have a chubby friend with!

Only trap i currently use that might work is a 4.5 sleepy creek. Probably hold if i ran the beast into the water on a drowning cable. That being said, i would have to use a front end loader to drop at least 500 lbs of weight into the water to tie the cable to. (Unless i found a car under water)

Use a cardboard box grin and a foot snare baited with pig or roadkill deer or elk would be the go to set. Or use 1/2" cable.

All I can say is that they are indeed fun to trap. This image is not photo-shopped and was taken in 1993 when I was in Far Eastern Russia. I currently do not have any foothold traps that I'd trust to hold one. The cat in the photo is a young male.

I only own one trap that I would use. Duke #16. I think it would hold one very well too.

Looks to be foot snared so that answers the question of what trap.

The (short) story behind the photo....

In early 1993 I took some time off from my job in Alaska to trap tigers for a study of said critters in Far Eastern Russia. Trapped a couple (indeed, Humptulips, with foot snares), then migrated to a different area (near the North Korean border in Russia) and began a study on Far Eastern leopards. Caught some leopards, Himalayan bears, brown bears, and miscellaneous other critters. Was over there for a year right after Glasnost and Perestroika, one of very few westerners in that part of Russia at the time. Stayed a year, then back to Alaska. Returned a couple of times after that to hunt (Russian boar, Roe deer, Sika deer) with a couple of the Russians I worked with that had become fast friends. Was a wonderful year. On the other hand, was happy to get back to interior Alaska.
