Couple years ago i switched from fiberglass screen pan covers to underalls, actually dont care for underalls but have since switched to 1/2 fiberglass pipe insulation cut into 4 pieces and fold over and place under pan, have had really good results. I have heard polyfill also works good, but my pickup would look like a teddy bear mass casualty scene im aftaid. What are you using?


Failure leads to learning, learning leads to improvement.

I am using polyfill on almost everything, just bought a cheap pillow and cut a whole in one end. Keeps the polyfill from going everywhere.

I still have an assortment of pan covers I am experimenting with. FG screen, Aluminum Screen, Hardware Cloth, even tried out sandpaper. So far nothing seems to be better or worse, but i just started playing with the aluminum screen and hardware cloth, so time will tell.

I used ot use wax paper, and frankly everything is better than that, at least in my experience.

I used coffee filters then switched to polyfill under the pan. Now, I use a trappers cap and pete moss with no cover. I have had good results. I use MB 450 and 550 traps if wondering.

I use pipe wrap insulation under the pan, have used that for years.

Money cannot buy you happiness, but it can buy you a trapping license and that's pretty close.

Why do you say that?
Genuinely curious your experience.

I think because up here in the north where freezing and snowy conditions are a major reality, wax paper can be the hot ticket. You want to crumple the wax paper into a ball 1st, then can flatten it out and use it. It's light weight and easy to work with too, and cheap.

Peat moss inside the jaws early season and just screen late season.

I also use polyfill and have for years, but I might try some coffee filters as well this season. I just keep the polyfill in a ziploc bag. Little goes a long way.

I use a 50/50 mixture of sifted dry peat moss and cover hulls. Springy enough to let the pan drop but it keeps dirt from clogging up the works.

I use screens and polyfill. Screens when I'm in a sod/grass type area where I can do a Pipe Dream set or a bait stick type set. If I'm in sand or dirt it's polyfill.
