Two weeks ago I guy gave me some brand new #2 LS. I want to start for coon this thanksgiving but I know if I use speed dip like I usually do it won't dry soon enough. Can I use the rustoleum? I'm not worried about the scent just if the paint will hold to the traps

That's the problem we have had with painting. With coons especially, they are going to fight and chew and bang the trap on stuff. Not all of the paint is going to come off, but it will chip off and get scraped off in patches. Well, to keep your traps from rusting too bad, you have to touch up those spots. Over time of doing this over and over, paint gets to clumping and gets to be too thick. Then you got to scrape it off, which is a pain in the you know what. I personally don't care for paints or dips for footholds because of this. However, I do like it for coni's, although it does take a little bit of time to paint them. On coni's it usuallly will last several seasons.
