Boco , I respect your leather work and your trapping work, they have proven skill behind them, but when you knock something around you obviously know nothing about and call people suckers and the products gimmicks to voice an opinion, I will not respect that !
Yes I use them and many others do as well, far to many to be shooting your yapper off like you know anything at all about them !!

I have no skin in it.You do-you are pushing a product.
My opinion stands.Far to much gimmickry in the trapping biz.
I repeat-I dont care who uses gimmicks-but you do.
I have absolutely nothing to sell on here.


Forget that fear of gravity-get a little savagery in your life.

Boco, your really something, I'm not here to sell I'm trying to explain your incessant rant is not about gimmicks it's about your lack of knowledge of a use.

That's all, people know here I sell I'm not advertising been here a lot lot longer than you and seen many others like you fall on their face as well about things they don't understand yet think they do.

Carry on with your opinion, you deserve it, you are old school, no problems !

I had spare money and was just playing around when I bought them. I figured a camera would be cool to have on them. I was really surprised with the catches and even more so with the birds of prey that the camera would catch swooping in to the limbs they were attached to.
Even better than that was when I went in deer hunting and saw a cat in the trap and text the manager to take his son to dispatch it He dispatched the cat and spent the next 5 minutes looking for the “squeak”. About the time he’d get close it would shut off. He’d start walking away and it would start up again, lol. He thought it was hilarious once he found the source of the sound.

Yea guess I am perturbed because of a guy who says he mouth calls to attract animals then has no good words about squeakers that increase catches and calls them gimmicks LOL

This has nothing to do about me selling them I never advertise here and when things like this come yea I get hits but thats not my intention to do so.

My intention was to try and educate on the use of them that they are not gimmicks, no more than any other improvement with trapping that comes along.

Your opinion maybe an honest one but it's not an educated one, there is a lot of difference.

They can pile up fur when used correctly a whole lot faster than just trying to move over hill and dell setting, you eliminate
quite a bit of that foot work or travels when you bring the animals to you instead of you going half way to them.

But each his own, you are correct they are not for old timers set in their ways thinking they can do more without when time is the essence of one's use, they do prove themselves, of course you can't argue that point because you don't know any better !

LOL,shows how much you know,I never said I mouth call fur,lol.
We use sets that provide natural sound call.

And yes they are gimmicks.
Sight and sound is a huge attractor but you sure dont need to buy a contraption to provide it.

But if the contraption is easier to use than hauling in a bunch of bait why not? grin

Indeed.
Keeping things simple and natural is the key to it.
Those that try to make things complicated or dependent on some secret thing are trying to market something.
You know-Trap the trapper.

If you look at it like Boco is suggesting anything we use in trapping other than our bare hands to catch critters is a gimmick.

Have at it man-make it as complicated and as mysterious as you wish.

From my standpoint the truth runs somewhere down the middle on this argument.

I'm not a fan of gimmicky trap sets either. You waste time and effort when the tried and true does the trick. You will notice that long liners who stack up big numbers rarely go to "gimmicky" type sets. They use tried and true, time conserving sets that produce fur on a consistent basis.

Now, is there a place for squeakers? I say yes there is. I don't go that route often, but have used them successfully on otters where I wanted to induce an otter to go where he normally might not and where the regular blind-set pinch points were not available to me. I have not tried them on bobcat "jackpot" sets but could see how you might pick up extra cats this way when your other sets get plugged by less desirable critters ie: possum, coon.

Therefore, I declare this argument..... a draw. smile

Do a test! One squeaker vs One beaver carcass. See which one pulls in the most wildlife? We all know the beaver carcass will Win! I'm going to side with Boco on this one. I am not saying the Squeaker wont pull animals in, It Will. I have called in way too many coyotes to say good sounds do not work. The Sound of a dead cow will call way more coyote's then a squeaker.

You do realize we’re still using bait/lure/urine with a squeaker, right? Or at least I am. A squeaker just helps that set on the South side of a two track when there’s a North wind.

Well let me add this then, not everyone has a dead cow or beaver carcass lying around so the squeaker helps. As far as calling in, I’m guessing some have never heard one of these. It’s not exactly a long distance call, unless distance is measured in centimeters, lol.

Don't take this wrong, but most good trapper's have plenty of carcasses to work with? Have some fun with the Squeaker!!! Find some good uses for it.
