Just registered for a CR class next month and while the trapping forum is hot, I figured it was a good time to ask questions.
I read the regs regarding CRs, I'm wondering who all is using greater than 3/32" cable? I'll be setting for coyotes as much or more than foxes next year so my goal is to hold them. I'm assuming 1/8" cable is probably popular amongst the guys targeting yotes? I plan on getting some cheap disposable stakes for anchoring instead of the chain stakes I'm using now.
Are you using just a bent piece of 9 gauge wire to support the CR?
I'd love to see some set ups, particularly closeups of the rig itself, but where they are set in the field would be helpful too.
I'm completely new to CR's. Definitely not abandoning traps though, just adding another tool to my bag of tricks.
