Getting back into trapping

After about 25 years away from trapping I decided to get back into it .I bought 1/2 a dozen of Duke double coil springs ..Price seemed right ...I am having trouble getting the pans to set level I can't see any adjustment in it to get them down with out some heating and bending the hinge side of the trigger. Any help would be appreciated...

Where the dog wraps around the frame ben it forward and the pan will lower.

That's what you get for buying Puke Traps... I am personally not a fan of them but that's just me

What an intelligent answer...not

The correct answer is to bend the post that the dog attaches to.

Don't listen to the duke haters, if you adjust them properly they will work fine. Are there better traps....yep. But you can catch a lot of critters in those Dukes.

Re: Getting back into trapping

I have filled our fur shed for years with dukes. Good trap for the money!
