Re: Trap size question
I'd go with a 1 3\4 size in a Sleepy, or Duke but not in offsets. You will loose some coons with the offsets. Coons can get under the jaws with this size trap but I haven't lost one yet with the regular jaws. A coyote may do a number on the stock Duke occasionally but I've had better quality traps get bent up also. My personal favorite is the Sleepy Creek 1 3/4 for an all around trap.
