walked into one of my mink sets today that was set up with a duke 120 in a small mink trail going through the grass and was blocked in right up against the trap ........first thought was holy cow what a big mink........turned out to be an otter stone dead but did flip a couple times enough to pull the sticks holding the trap out of the ground....if it wasn't cabled ?????????????

I agree I cable off all my traps now cause you never know what will fire them, besides a fella neads somthin to do with all his old coyote and wolf snares.

I wire off most of my small body grips to a red brick or a tree root.

I lost a 220 my first season because I didn't wire it off

Yeah, we use cable running to a 24-30 inch stake... or any stake that isnt in use already! unless we are using buckets or cubbies, then the cable is put on the stake that goes through the bucket to hold both the trap and bucket/cubby!
