Re: Trap stakes
Back in the day before coyotes were rampant here in Pennsylvania, a great many trappers, myself included, used angle iron stakes, usually 10 or 12 inches long and affixed to the shortened trap chain by a S-hook. That was enough to hold any fox or coon that came down the pike. Some trappers used wooden stakes. Two notable wooden stake users were the late Kermit Stearns from Cambridge Springs and Russ Carman.
I trap mink because I don't know any better
