The Duke DP I didn't have a foam cup but I found an empty beer can and just cut the top off and put that over the set and worked great

I really didn't think Id get one in the cage trap but he was sitting there when I got there. I had two other cages out but the coons went in thru the sides and dug under the trap causing them to fire, and they got the bait lol. Figured Id give it a try tho!

Great job on the coons. Maybe you can wire a tin can in the cage traps or better yet, add some hardware cloth to the sides near where the bait is to be positioned.
