B.M.I---I prefer the B.M.I. trap over all others for my kind of trapping for bobcats and coyote.Then next is Victor-Montgomery dogless.I have requested that B.M.I. make dogless 1 1/2 traps,but so far they will not.For people like me who carry all the traps on a foot line in a pack basket that would be the perfect trap--- light weight,but B.M.I. 1 1/2'S hold nearly all coyotes for me in using them since the 1980's.The B.M.I. 1 3/4 and the 2 K9 wolfer work great.
The best analogy I can come up with is that traps are like hammers. Different hammer for a different job. 30 years ago I was a hard core Victor kind of guy, but now days there are a lot of good quality traps out there so use a mixture to get the job done. I love my MB 550's for canine, but prefer my old Northwoods 1.75 for fox, Belisle BG's and Victor LS for beaver and Victor 1 1/2's for coon. Different tools for different jobs.
My favorite brand is bridger. If anyones interested I have a blog if you want to check it out. It is called howtotrapraccoon.wordpress.com. Please check it out and give me some ideas about what to write about. Thanks.
