Now explain to me how you can answer this -- ya got DPs - that would be Diablo's - then beaver traps -like the old 330 BMI mag. but then ya got footholds MB 750 -- Cat/yote traps Bridger 3 full modified 4-coiled - rat old victors 110 -- Coon 220 Bridger and them Canadian traps -- thank the God's there a trap fer every trapper -- just sayin -D-

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.
skidoo1000: I need to catch up on school before I can get traps out.

frerotte: Got another nice wide stripe skunk yesterday. Traps are under 6" of snow tonight have to wait a day or two to uncover them.

Law Dog: I have a order for 5 striped skunks for a University study still need 4 for fill the order, I keep the stink and the body they want the head and pelt so it works out well for me. Setting traps later in the week harvest is WAY behind.

Law Dog: Wet and muddy here "butter muddy", crops still in the fields in a lot of places might need to start with the 4 wheeler and trailer then use the truck when it freezes up. If I wait the trap bedding will be impossible then.

frerotte: Went to 48 F today and I got a big female coon in one of my traps that was buried under last weeks snow. Would have though the mice would have got all the bait but there was enough left for the coon to stick her head in the bucket.
