Man, I was going to get some Z traps......now I don't know?
That is a good opening price point that should sell them a pile of traps.

its just too bad they put this before getting the bridger #3 dogless on the market..i guess this was easier to make 1-2 changes and get the parts stamped out to put on the market..

I set two traps one night in a small feeder stream. Next day I had two coons.
That's my only experience with them. 2 for 2.

I do well with the Duke and the Grizz DP traps. Don't put a sticky bait in the trap as it will cause dirt to clog the trigger at times. Chumks of fish or marshmellows are good. A friend of mine does real good with pieces of smoked hotdogs. He also wire ties the trap about 14 inches high on a stake or bush. Use the smallest wire tie so it will break free when coon is caught. You can also use a fine wire. The whole idea of raising the trap is to avoid skunks and possoms. I use a piece of sheep wool near or at the set up high on which I use coon lure as a call lure. The whole thing in a nutshell is you have to be on location as coon tracks are a good spot. Henry

DP's sure make setting locations FASTER!
Last season, I even tried a few DP's on drags, with good results.

The price is going to increase on them to $149/doz on May 1st.
Now I'm leaning back towards the Z-trap unless I find them cheaper at the Pa Convention.

I've used the Dukes with excellent results and have no reason to change.

I tried this too and it worked well until I had to climb a tree to get one....That was the last day for the drags.

Is it legal to use sheeps wool out in the open even if it is away from the set? If it is at the set and not inside the DP or covered it may be illegal in PA. With footholds and body grips, in cannot be seen from the air.
