or is it its keeping me from going out at the moment and setting for some fur , actually I was waiting for the temp to rise just alittle so its not so bad for my daughter as I did get her a license and some traps to call her own from the start its nice to have new . its getting late but just right to go so have a great day and yes take a kid with they do enjoy even if they are girls she just loves it or so she says and she is always bragging to the wimpy boys in her school who think that they are real out doors man when there sitting on the couch playing games she is out learning how to catch dinner and money. she has them beat all the way . she just needs to get a bit stronger as setting is real tough for her I have made a setter for her and would like ideas for long springs for her to set she is so tiny.

size 0 I mean I can set them but it would make it more foreal for her to. she was a bit reluctant to reach her hand in the rat house but on a small one where she could see she will . besides I have yet to find one still in a house unless it was attached to a trap . but do you have an idea about a way for her to set it with somthing , her weight is not quite there for her to hold it down and set the pan and dog when she tries that her weight comes off it spring just enough and if it was softer earth there is no way. some kind of fulcrum device but I just don't have any ideas maby if I was trying to set a 5 or larger long spring I would figure it out. sounds like you have an idea or know of somthing I can make any thing as there is a metal fab shop where i work they have all the tools I need to make it. I just had an Idea but if you have one ?

The Sleepy Creek bodygrip setting tongs are notched to use on longsprings. She ought to be able to hold the tongs closed (compressing the spring) with one hand, while setting the trap with the other.

Even if not, you could hold the tongs while she set the trap....lol, atleast she'd be 1/2 way there.
