After reading this thread, I decided to try the log vs. the pocket set. Both took me about the same amount of time to make, and it can’t be proved that the coon wasn’t headed to the pocket when he was caught. Both sets I tried this, the coon was caught on the log when I got there. Was pretty simply, throw drowner weight into the creek, put a clump of mud on the log, bed trap and move to the next set.

If your set on trapping crossing logs you might as well start pre baiting those locations. Then you can set the approaches and the log itself.
That way you can really rack up the fur. Well Maybe.

The pre baiting isn't necessary. Every critter around already knows the crossing is there if it's been there a while. (Of course pre baiting wouldn't hurt) It isn't always about maximizing your catch. It's just a different not so common set that you have a chance at catching many different critters. Just like your tire set Beav, it's not the quickest or best set, it's just something different to try. Id set a couple dp's on each end of the log anyway and hope the traps on the log stay available for the next passing fox or coyote. One of those sets where ya never know what your going to catch.

Poor planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on mine!

Other then the tire set you should always try and maximize your catch per check. LOl

Ah yes! But still experiment and have fun! Lol. Try them all. Maybe we'll figure out the next big secret set that catches every critter around!

many of us like setting 2 foothold sets at each end to get critters before they even get onto the log THEN a couple raised 220's or chopped in footholds.

Been following this thread for a while. Interesting stuff! Cool ideas! Thinking outta the box, trying new stuff, all part of the fun. I've thought of setting traps on a log, then I get to the log and it's too high to reach, or, the creek is dry, and if it fills, I won't be able to get to it. Not every time, but often enough I just don't do it. Plus I have a ton of red squirrels. It's been a wet winter though, and we've had plenty of snow, so I've been watching to see which logs actually get used by the animals I might target. Being able to target the animals there is the same as using a natural funnel in other places. That info on the trap-line is priceless. I'll definitely be setting a few logs at the bank, and if the situation allows I'll try to squeeze in another set or two on the log itself. Never tried it, but it's on my to-do list for next season. I'm thinking mink must use them too?


I trap for fun. I skin 'em for the money!
