It depends on what the meaning of the word "is" is.


have you looked at the recent thread in the trapping forum- lots of fun going on about the use of coni's again.

Why would you want to set in a dry watercourse when so many folks are running hounds, when you can set to the letter and intent of the law and not really worry about endangering hounds by doing so? Keystonepaul

A. because it's legal; B. I'm doubtful your hound is digging around in a root tangle; C. there is NO WAY a hound is going to get its' head in a 110; D. there is VERY, VERY LITTLE chance your hound is going to get its' head in a 160. E. that's where the mink are.

I advocate safe, ethical and legal use of bodygrip traps. Setting little holes in root systems IN A WATERCOURSE is not endangering your dogs. I worry more about abandoned barb wire and my dog jumping over a treetop and impaling itself on a branch than traps.

A.yep they are legal. B. he'd be in the root tangle for the same reason the mink would be cause you increased your chances by putting out some lure....., a 160 is 6 inches by 6 inches...... sometimes it's not about how many you can catch..... very little chance... you can decrease those odds further by setting in the water and if you've got a pocket in a root tangle you can effectively use a leghold right..... we can go round and round... just a difference of opinion. You think it's ok I don't some valid points in your arguement and mine enjoy your trapping season and good luck with your sets. Keystonepaul

Best way to curb that problem is control your dog. The man is doing his sportin legally.

A hound buddy of mine just had a Fox hound killed on Saturday in an illegal bucket set. I run hounds on coyote and believe me if one dies I will find out who set the trap. The local WCO is investigating.

I care, I guess you either do not have dogs or common sense..... if you are running dogs on scent.... they will investigate a smell ... so are you saying that if i am running a hound on scent that i need to keep him on an 8 ft leash to "control my dog" to keep that from happening.... give me a break...

I have a shiba inu I run once in awhile and his head will fit in a 160 and even though it would be a super tight fit almost in a 110
