Coniber Traps

Do coniber traps need to be waxed and dyed, or just set?

Re: Coniber Traps

Know of guys that wax then melt it off the trigger area.I waxed mine last year and once you try to set them without melting it off the trigger area makes setting almost impossible.

The answers to all of life's questions are found in the Bible!

Re: Coniber Traps

I wax my Duke Conis. (excluding 330's) Most of the time they don't need scraping. It's not for everyone, but it makes a faster trap and I think a better mink trap. The Bridgers have a bit more sensitive trigger system. I'd recommend painting them.

Re: Coniber Traps

Bought a $5.00 gallon of sent back paint at Wal Mart, watered it down and just dipped mine a off brown color, worked well.

They look like they had wax on them from last season. I assume that it did not work out for you. I am going to clean them before I try to set them.
