Was checking some mink blind sets yesterday and had this Tom caught by two toes. Just had the trap wired off to a tree. It was short enough that he couldnít really lunge hard, I guess. Sometimes it sure is nice to be lucky!!! [Linked Image]

I've caught a few in mb450s. I don't normally use them for cats, but when I'm out of cat traps I have to use my fox traps. Totally stock and exposed. Still getting pad catches.


If traps work like the Antis say......I would have no fingers.
