Collar Um


Recommended Posts

Anything specifically you are looking to know about it?


I messed with one a few years back, but I don't own any and haven't trapped in a couple years.


It definitely seemed like it would be an outstanding tool for yotes and even foxes. A little pricey though in my opinion. Trapping is already expensive enough with just the fuel. 

“I have always tempered my killing with respect for the game pursued. I see the animal not only as a target, but as a living creature with more freedom than I will ever have. I take that life if I can, with regret as well as joy, and with the sure knowledge that nature’s way of fang and claw and starvation are a far crueler fate than I bestow.” – Fred Bear

A well placed snare is just as if not more effective they are good for adc jobs I have them and have used them both adc and trapping in the field some think they are a guarantee they are not some also think they need bait and lure to harvest if you allow the animal to teach you where and how to catch it a snare is your best option

The woods where I've located coyotes are filled with mature trees and little underbrush and I've had trouble finding consistent coyote travel routes to snare them.  I figured I would give this a try in those woods.  My concern is how to keep the racoons from setting it off.  Maybe I need to thin out the coons first?

No Newt that one didn't get me. it was the one in the groundhog snare that got me LOL and a Rabbit skunk almost bite me a few weeks ago LOL


In NJ you are not going to keep the coon outta of them. That is why I made some modifications. I would rather catch what is at the trap than keep coming back to find a sprung trap. The modifications is what caught that skunk. Allen who manufactures the trap just shakes his head when he hears about me catching coon and skunks in them LOL Set your cages and DP's back off the collarum on the trails coming in to the set. this will help in the coon and skunks also adds for a draw to the location for the coyotes and fox. a lot of the northern boys do not understand what we have as far as ground down here in the south western part of the state. wide open fields 50 to 100 acres butting right up to the same size woods no change over edge. the yotes run the field edges and woods roads for miles. The trap has a place just not the best tool for fur. Much better in wildlife control up near houses. Out in the fields the coyotes like the baits with our legal bait laws. We need to change the exposed bait law for this trap. I was talking to Morgan Bennett down in MD. just 2 days ago on this issue with licking the baits.
