for those who use this trap, what is the best way to make a set. I bought one this week to try next year and was curious how sets were made with these traps

We have deer feeders out and by the end of deer season the coons are working the feeders pretty good and have holes dug around under and around the feeders. I just open one of the holes and put the Lil Grizz down in it, bait it and secure it off. Sometimes along feeder streams I will set them where there is good travel sign....set same way.....make a hole, put the trap in, tamp the dirt around it so it is stable, then bait and secure.

I set mine either in a bank or at the base of a tree and tear up strips of moss to cover all but the hole at the top. Fish or marshmellows are what I use as bait.

thanx for the help yall. I trap streams so i guess its just like a pocket set with dirt packed around. I have been using fish as bait at my pocket sets. Only thing i would put a 1 1/2 Duke in front of the hole.
