Heres some pix on how to make an EASY! Tip-up box! It's just a twist on the "Rally Hess style". This way takes about 15 mins TOPS!! Use what you can from it, Throw away the rest! LOL

No freezing problems so far. I use that anti-ice icefishing line(smooth stuff) not braided. Ive seen 1/16 cable used before to. I place them in the cattails of under pine trees so snow is keep at a min.

I use mainly chicken livers and Lenons weasel all call. But under advice from some other trappers i'm gonna try a gusto this year also.

Gusto? We have thousands of weasels. I would like to thin out a few.

Hey black how is that string held on to the trap is it just put between the spring and jaw?


I was thinking about this last year because i trap them on roads alot and it would be nice to just look and see if it is set off.



Thanks

Rob

Rob, Its just pinched between the striker and the spring arm. That way if something goes afoul on the system. The string will pull out and the striker will still work. You could just tie it on also, no big deal.

Must be missing something here but what pulls the little silver pin holding the flag down?

When theres a little flag flappin in the breeze i'm not sure of anything.LOL Just use it those harder to check areas. The ones along the road only take a second to check anyways. But like all weasel trapping BEWARE the wash of the snowplow!LOL
