Drags

You fellas that use drags in the winter for fox and coyots, how do you bed or conceal the drag? Do you just dig a bigger bed and put it under the trap or do you lay it off to the side? New to drags, thanks alot

Re: Drags

i throw mine to the back of the set, never buried, just thrown on top of the ground/snow.

Re: Drags

yup. no need to hide the drag they dunno what it is. and if you want, throw some leaves or snow over it. i use a good size chain and put the drag out of the way of my dirthole set.

Re: Drags

Use a branch 6-8 feet long and atleast the thickness of your arm. I look around my set area for them. I looks natural,smells matural and it's one less thing in your packbasket

A government that doesn't trust it's law abidding citizens to bear arms is unworthy of trust itself.

Re: Drags

Sounds good.

What about, though, the chain; how do you disguise it right at the set? Thanks for the help

Re: Drags

you dont, throw that baby around a tree or just let it rock. you bury the chain right on the trap just like you normally would.

What I say might not be the popular trend but at least Im not afraid to speak my mind!

Re: Drags

I'm not sure I understand what you're saying.

Everyone said they just throw the drag to the side so how do you conceal the chain where it comes up out of the trap bed?

I do appreciate the help

Re: Drags

dont worry about it, they wont care. when they dig, they dig cause they smell something usually, unless you get a really ornery one. i usually run drags on hay sets. otherwise, a cable steak usually will go in even ground you think is solid.

Re: Drags

i dig a small trench about 4" and put that little bit of chain in it, bury it and let the rest of the 8' chain and grapple exposed.
