Use for conibear 120's

I bought 3, 120's before i knew they could not be used on land in a mink box, now I am trying to figure out how to use them, any help would be appreciated. I am think they may be too big for bottom edge sets. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

Re: Use for conibear 120's

you can use mink boxes on dry land...just have to be within the water coarse..so if you have a creek with high banks you have to stay within that creek channel below the top edge of the bank...
not the greatest pic but i think you get the idea...

Im sure that if you have time you can make the mink boxes and you can still you those 120s. Build a little cave with rocks on the stream and put some bait in the back and the trap at the entrance

You can use a #120 coni on land as the jaw spread on a #120 is only 4 1/2", water or no water.

Re: Use for conibear 120's

I prefer a 120 in my "underwater pocket" set. I like the dual springs so I can push stakes down through the spring eyes to stabilize the trap in case a mink swims into the side of the trap.

They also work very well in the old #10 tomato can set as popularized by BK of Wisconsin.

I trap mink because I don't know any better
