Re: DPs?

LF, you just make extension cables. go around the tree and back through itself and attach trap with a quick link. or you can make them with a small loop end already attached to the trap and the other end with an adjustable loop. just go around the tree and pass the trap through the adjustable loop. this loop is made by using a double ferule but dont crimp/hammer it down. then put a single ferule on the end for a stopper and crimp/hammer that fast.

Now your diggin' where the 'tators are!

3/32 is fine IMO you would be better off going with chain as the chain will last the life of the trap...where as cable will need replaced every year because it gets pretty kinked up and wrapped up like a spring to try and have the ease of reuse without tangling all up into a big mess....

Re: DPs?

coon arent turned off by anything. i use 3/32 also and it works fine. if you use the adjustable deal you can attach the trap to the small loop with a swivel but things will kink up eventually. when it does i shorten them or turn them into cable stakes.

Now your diggin' where the 'tators are!

Re: DPs?

i ran last year with 3/32 and 1/8 cable attached to mine and both cables was junk after 1-2 catches as far as not getting kinked up...i got tired of all the tangled mess after pulling and putting in the back of the truck to go reset....so this year i went to #2 twist loop chain on all of them...for .20 a foot for the chain i added 3 ft of chain to them and i will be money ahead for the life of the traps...
