Tip if you have a drag that hooks up quick and leaves a clear mark in your terrain then great. If not, add a few more feet of chain. My fav are custom jobs made by NvCatTrapper and Fluff but the Freedom Brand work great too.

1 pound mini drags With 6 feet of chain,, since we can pre-hook to saplings or logs along logging roads and field edges.

The drag type is important.............. BUT........... from my experience, the WEIGHT is just as important. If you purchase or make a metal grapple type ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,a clip or chain loop on the rear to attach added lbs. can keep a light weight one from jumping and bouncing around while a yote makes a beeline or a 90 degree. I won't use this type w/o added weight in this farm country (150 acres of FROZEN soybean stubble doesn't lock up as quick as I like). Extra weight adds to the truck bed but 20 ten pound window or homemade concrete pop bottle weights gives me a lot of flexibility to use metal grapples where most would not in this area.................... the mike

Thanks for all the replies. Iím gonna make them probably 2 and a half pounds or so I think. Iíll have 10 to 12 feet of chain and I trap in sagebrush, more than likely with that setup even the meanest coyote wont get ten yards. I want em wrapped up just far enough away from the set that it doesnít wreck the trail.

Iíve considered making some to sell as well.

Bob did you ever see any of Mike Ross's drags he uses or did you miss his demo's those were the real deal the flat iron that you attach the chain to shriveled up or down . I'll try to get a picture of them from him.
