This just my thoughts. If I were looking for a trap for trapping fox and coyote I personally would go to a #2 size trap. That's just my personal preference. Especially if you have snow on the ground.

They’ll make a heck of a fox trap ... coyote may get you frustrated with them here and there but they’ll hold the ones we got down here if you center them up.

Caught and held the biggest Bobcat I’ve ever seen in one if that fires you up a little

Great little all around trap. I've got everything from mink to coyotes in them. But they are perfect for fox trapping.


Right now I’m having amnesia and déjà vu at the same time. I think I’ve forgotten this before.

The Bridger 1 3\4 is as big as other #2s.

Bridger makes a good trap. I think you would be happy with them. The 1 3/4 would be easier to bed than a bigger trap. A big coyote will fill that trap up.

Works great for both along with bobcats. Have 3 doz. in my collection. 2 doz r offset and wish the other doz was too cause of foot damage on small fox.

They're a good start but like others say you will probably want to get some #1 3/4's or # 2's to add to your arsenal eventually. Great little all around trap though.

Wouldn’t be my choice if coyotes are just as plentiful as the fox. Yes they can hold some but you will also be straightening the dogs and pans after most coyote catches in them. The bridger number 2 would be more suitable for a mix line of coyote and fox than the 1.75s. But if targeting fox mainly very nice trap and like said will hold the occasional coyote that gets in a fox set.

I run Northwoods 1.75's on my red fox line. They are almost identical to the Bridger 1.75. As said above, they are about a perfect fox trap and have held every coyote I've caught on my home line. But that ain't many coyotes, less than a dozen.

When I run a line at camp where there are roughly equal amounts of coyotes and fox (both red and gray), I run #2 Bridgers.


Eh...wot?

I have to ask if Duke sponsors your YouTube channel wouldn't you want to be supporting them? I know if I was sponsoring something like that and the person was posting they bought the competition's traps I might be a little confused and forget why I was sponsoring them. But maybe I over think it.

Good traps. They’ll hold a coyote most of the time.

Duke does sponsor my channel and I have quite a few of their traps. I have more duke predator traps than any other brands at the moment.
Bill is a great guy and I don't think he has any problem with me running other brands.

Wouldn't fly with many other sponsorships. And I wouldn't feel comfortable doing it.

I don’t think duke will mind as long as his products are still being used and shown. Plenty of other you tubers has duke as a sponsor and are using other brand of traps.
