Work? Yes but far from the best coon trap on the market. In my opinion the 1.5 is a much better coon trap.

Without getting graphic, which really drives the moderator nuts, a #2 coil, when closed over a coon foot, leaves too much room under the jaws for a coon to do dirty work.

I trap mink because I don't know any better

Had a skunk and opossum do the dirty work on a #2 trap I would say for coon a 1.5 itll work for fox also.

If you are going to buy coon traps try the 1 1/2 double jaw , the # 1 double jaw both coil springs or the # 11 D.J. it is a double long spring !

I use them on drowning cables only. They worked great when deployed in the water.

duke 1.5's are the best value around for a good coon and occasional fox trap
