When I do

I use ADC methods

Green bucket one time use ( the 220 springs will ripp the side apart when it goes off).

Checking line this morning seen where a couple big boars have been running so I decided to purposely catch them


Typically I get around 35-40. In my canine sets but this year so far only 9 So here we go

If they have plenty of food, give them something interesting to smell

I use the small buckets and cut holes only big enough to put the set springs through. Let's the bucket stabilize my coni so I can just set them in many locations easily. Like attics, under decks, crawl spaces ect

A coni box would work fine of course for out door fur trapping. But I don't have any and this was quick and easy to get set

The spring rip through the plastic ? The cat litter buckets I use are pretty thick.

YA i'm puzzled, Unless your bucket is made out of paper, that plastic WILL slow the traps springs down. Why not cut a L shape out or notch the front of the bucket ,to let your trap fire properly ?

Gotcha- that would be hard to stake in an attic or on cement
