? About DP Coon Traps

Are they legal in PA? The book says that bait can not been seen from the air. I would think that with these traps you would be able to see the bait standing above it? Just curious...

Re: ? About DP Coon Traps

It kinda saying two different things. It saying they are legal then it says about the bait. I was thinking about using the whole in the board with the coilspring method. But i would be willing to bet that would be illegal.

cover the trap with a golfball or cup and it is good to go.

Re: ? About DP Coon Traps

I use a paper cup over the traps...not really to make the bait invisible from the air, but for a visual attraction. I never considered it, but I suppose it takes care of that problem. Coon will flip the cup off.

no problem with a DP, unless you have a huge chunk of bait laying on the ground next to it.

Re: ? About DP Coon Traps

where does the paper cup stand using it on game lands? would that be considered littering?

Not real sure to answer your question furcatcher. I thought of this before. Personally I stick with a tin can drill a small hole in the side near the top of the can. With about 6 inches of wire, tie the can to your trap chain. Acts as a nice visual,keeps the mice out, hides the bait from the air and nothihng will carry it off. Spray paint it white if you wish .. this would solve your problem. Just my 2 cents.

I like the tin can idea. I'm not sure if they could nail you for littering as long as you don't leave anything behind when you're done, but who knows. It probably depends on who you're dealing with.
