Both great fox traps, I do know the sleepy creek 1.75 offset jaw is wider(thicker) in the offset than the vics. Either would be a good choice though.

If you might catch a yote Id go with the SC O\S then, if strictly fox a 1 1/2 or 1.75 will do the job then.


Was born in a Big City Will die in the Country OK with that!

If there is any chance at all of catching a coyote, or even a big dog the S.C. 1.75 is a much stronger trap than the Victor.

Doesn't matter if it's regular jaw or offset, it will hold just fine, it's just a better trap IMO.

Id go with the Sleepy Creeks, I used those 1.75 in regular jaw, pretty stout trap.
