This is my 3-4 year trapping since I was a kid. I bought the coyote starter kit from MTP and loved the MB550s. Bought 2 dozen more 2 coiled offsets then 2 dozen regular jaws then bought a dozen 450s regular jaw to try out this year. I cant compare them to anything else, but I do remember they are 100% better than the old Victors we used to run as kids.
I do nothing to them but clean and set if I get them during season. I attach 12 super stakes with a quick link and ready to set. Never had a K9 pull a set yet. Caught a few K9s and felines by nothing but a toe and still be able to give them a ride in the truck.
As far as buying anything else...that would be highly doubtful. If something works Im not going to change it.

My only complaint is they dont stand up too well to tractors and bulldozers clearing firebreaks!!

I'm not exactly sure what you're referring to WR when you speak of a dead spot. I keep the paws off the trigger area with fencing.

I don't care for dogless traps because they are not cookie cutter similar as far as the latch point, and I prefer same, same, same, same.....

Blessings,
Mark

Mr. Savell Sir,
how in the wide wide world of sports did you teach your coyotes to lay still like that all in a row?
Golly you are a man of many talents, you could probably teach them to do other tricks like play dead.... wait a minute......
Was it one of them fancy dog training collars or are they just waiting for one of them pedicures you were talkin of?
They gots their littles feets all hung out just waiting.
My coyotes aint that smart and they sure wont lay down with no trashy spotted up lookin barn cat unless they are eatin it!

And looky at Mark Junes ... they are taking the BIG siesta in the shade of that old skinning rack they are, like an old hound dog.

Talk about for catches. Normally I get a good pad catch but when this happens the critter is still there. This catch happens to be in a Duke 550 for those who noticed the square pan but I own only 2 dozen of these I bought to experiment with. All my other predator traps are MB -550s. Both are same build style but I still prefer the MBs


Wish I had more time to trap....

Savell l didnt want to brag on ya and get your head all swole up, lol
I was sure you didnt have the time to slap tame em.
Good un on Mark but I think you just broke in line in the express lane to you know where!
Some of them little devils will be takin coal of my pile it will take to burn me up to put on yours if you keep that up.
In my former years they had two shifts working 24 hrs a day trying to pile up my pile.

In Marks defense, he has only laid hands on them and made them christian coyotes!

Today, there will be others.
And the next day others.

Well I'll be. I parked my buggy on the side of the road and 5 more coyotes and another bobcat jumped in and took their last breath. Same as yesterday. It's just that easy here in the land of gentle breezes.

Tomorrow, just for kicks and giggles, I'm gonna catch a different number of coyotes and cats!

As you see, I don't walk in to my sets very far grin
