i read in fur-fish-game that this guy used a piece of 20 inch metal culvert with a trap attatched to each end and bait inside for bobcat, but he said that it aslo works for fox and coyote, just wandering if anyone else has tried this, and if so, have you had luck with it for canines, because i dont have any bobcat to trap, but i put a few snares and dirtholes out today for the fox and coyote around here and i was thinkin about tryin this set out.

K9 don't like to limit their visibility by sticking their heads into something enclosed. Sight is one of their best defense (and offense) abilities. Has it happened? Sure.

Have I tried it? No.

the set in the mag is open on both ends. pretty much just a chunk of culvert pipe with a trap bedded on both ends.i would think they would walk into it if it was real cold out and food is short. i know they will walk through bigger ones under roads

Is it heavy? It must be cumbersome. Multiple sets would be unrealistic

When they say "culvert pipe", they don't mean the metal tube like under the road.

There is black corragated plastic that comes in large size for drainage and such. At length, it's somewhat flexible due to the "ribs". But when cut short, it's a stout, round cubby that's ready to go - just staple some mesh on one end, or cut slots in both ends for coni's. You can strap them to a tree for a dog-proof coon set, bury them in the grass, bury them in dirt, underwater, blah, blah, blah... they are durable, weather resistant, and far lighter than wood boxes.

Edit: He did say metal. Well, that's just dumb. Use the plastic, it won't rust or dent.

in the magazine he was usin pieces of metal culver pipe, i think only because he was anchoring the traps directly to it. you could prolly use plastic to make them lighter, and just stake the traps outside.
