pipe trapping

Does anyone use pvc pipes for trapping minh? If so what lenght and diameter would work? If anyone has a pic to share that would be greatly appreciated.

Re: pipe trapping

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

Re: pipe trapping

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.

Re: pipe trapping

Pipe sets are Usually all I run for coon and of course DPs. I drive the pvc in at about a 45 degree angle though instead of using the elbow ,but the elbow works just as well.

Re: pipe trapping

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
