i have used pvc for coon and a few times for mink. by naturwe a mink will stick it's head in nearly every hole it travels by.back to your question, when i used this for mink i covered a 4 inch piece of pipe with grass along a spring, blocked the rear with stones and added a bait with a #1 in front.hooked trap to a sash weight and caught a few this way over the years. not one of my best animals to catch
1" pipe is what I use. I cut some 18" and some 24" with a elbow. Some I keep strait and put into a a bank. ( just like where u would use a pocket set). Pipe sets and blind sets are the only sets I sue for water trapping.
work harder millions on welfare are depending on you
B&D- did you place that rock behind the pvc for some sort of backing or was that just there? Tried some elbows and straight pipe last year due to the banks of our creeks up here being nothing but rock with a few places to stab in some pvc and I think they may have been reaching from behind my pvc elbows to pull them over backwards to get into the pipe...sounds crazy but a few were tipped over backwards with no bait...no coon
