Good luck and keep us posted.

steeltraps, I have the standard jr's and I love them. What do you like about the wire lever over the standard lever? Bed easier?


Gotta live up to the nickname...

Steeltraps, when you bed your trap do you drive anchor and bury the shock spring to the side of the trap? I always try to drive anchor and bed trap on top of the spring and chain and sometimes itís a pain. From your pics looks like you have trap bedded away from where anchor and spring are, or am I wrong?

Yes. Now that im 50 for last 3 or 4 years I pre prill holes. As in = I walk up to spot i want to make ser and run 1 inch = Wood boring drill down bout to 18 inch. Then drive Wolf Fang in pilot hole. Then set trap. In harder soil. WHY dig more than you have to ? Thats a problem often. Trying to get chain and swivels and shock spring under trap. So why do it??? I have been trapping coyotes for 35 years. And this was how I was taught. Even = James Lucero = Had no problems with the way I do it. He said = YOU pack that chain down well, to not be under the trap

Look for = Widw and fat as you can get = in middle of bone. Round radius in center. IF the edges are not smooth. Take drimile tool and clean up edges. Will show next stop
