Not really a method that I recommend, but if you are absolutely deadset to use them, perhaps a bucket set would be the best idea. But, once again, check your regulations. In states that allow the use of conibears on land in bucket sets, there are usually restrictions on size, how far into the bucket, how big a bucket, etc. Have you checked your trapping regulations yet?

The thing about me is that I often rush too much into action. Asked only one redneck what to use and this was supposed to be it :roll: that´s why have 15 traps in 220´s .

Fox trapping is not common here , no regulation about that at all.
If you trap for mink everything is allowed .

The 220 will work I've caught plenty of fox using 330's. Just make a cubbie set using rocks, branches or even snow. Or find a hole.
Put some bait behind the trap, cover the sides so the foxes has to go threw the trap.
I've never caught artic fox but I think it would probably work pretty good.

Here's a pic of a fox I caught this year in a 330. Got 50$ US for him.
Good luck.

well if you can use any thing then a 330 would be even better for catching fox, 220 I have caught them in but it was slim pickings the set was there along time but I knew I would eventually connect . When I say long it was a week .

find your self a real good fox trail and put it up on a stableizer some where around 6 inches off the ground. do it like a blind set(since it is)and you should be good to go
