Re: 1 1/2 MUSIC WIRE SPRING
Forestman, correct assessment where I am as well. We are neighbors and the days of targeting cute little foxes with cute little traps ended years ago. I run big traps, that hold them all, see little to no damage to foxes and hold the biggest meanest coyotes with the big iron.
This is not intended to start a debate, but I target coyotes, set coyote traps, stake for coyotes and come heides or high waters do everything in my power to hold and kill coyotes. I've held my share of coyotes in the smaller traps, but have had a few of the older ones blown up too. The days of blown up traps are a thing of the past for me.. Your choice of #2 bridger imo is a fine choice, and with the addition of pits and 4 coil kits will hold any coyote... I run the states maximum jaw spread traps and plan for coyotes and hold all foxes that hit the pan, not the reverse.
