Thatís a cool little set up Eddie. I was thinking that must be European and saw your location. The thread in the international trapping forum with all the neat designs is what got my wheels turning on some home made traps.

Yea it is similar to designs used in parts of Europe where traps built into box's are a popular choice for mink. With many trapping restrictions imposed across Europe and Scandinavia, a lot of traps must be used inside a box, or tunnel of some kind.

I tried to think of something that could be set by pulling a handle from the outside of the box, and I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. It's a very powerful trap, with a sensitive pan trigger.

Those PVC ones look like a similar design for the spray proof skunk traps you can buy commercially, less the solid door. I was have a couple pieces of 15 inch pvc, thatís pretty close to what i was pondering. Thanks for posting

Now that's a cool trap, have you had problems with mink tearing up your springs on the inside of your trap ?

There was a fella from California that made cage traps but those were outlawed too. He has disappeared. Might took after Hupurest and turned Greenie.


I know I'm paranoid......but am I paranoid ENOUGH???

Wolfdog, I haven't tried the trap yet. Hopefully this winter. That may be an issue, but I have seen traps on the market with springs inside. I may just wait and see when I test it out.
