So I was talking to a guy at work and he asked if I used a tire set. I guess you set on the inside of the tire so they almost have to step down off the tire. The only question I have is it legal? there would be no bait visable from the air..and as long as you take the tire when your done? Seems like it might be a good bobcat set???
i trap a farm that he uses tires on his silage pits to hold the tarps down
Back in the days when I was more concerned with foxes, I used to trap a farm that had a silage pit or two in a field beside the barn. It didn't take long for rats and mice to take up residence in those pits which in turn brought on the foxes. There was a small knob of high ground about a hundred yards or so from the pits. Foxes approaching the pits used to get up on this knob to look things over before nearing the building. Here I used one trap, a square jawed #2 Victor Coil, shortened chain and a 12" angle iron stake. The set I used was a simple deep dirt hole, 12 inches deep, 5 inches in diameter and "lured" with one ounce of fresh fox urine poured straight down the hole. That one set used to bring me a lot of fox each season.
