Im new to trapping and have found that it is very rewarding, beyond what I had expected. The area that I have been looking over has nothing but rocks.........Dirt holes, no way ............the deepest hole I was able to dig was 4 inches..............I have been looking into a lot of different Flat sets................however anchors are totally out of the question. I have to tie off of sage brush............
What do you guys use to keep your sets from frezzing. It rained here and then the temp dropped and the sifted dirt was hard as a rock....................??
Have any of you used a squeeker box to draw animals in.............?
I sprayed my traps with a light tan metal spray paint then a few days later coated them with FMJ will that work out Ok?
I have bought several different traps to see what I like, Duke 1 3/4 Duke 3 Sleepy Creek 1 3/4 Bridger 3 and the ones I like the most are the MB 550's they are easy for me to set and being a beginer that is important to me..........Any of you guys ever get your fingers caught in your trap??

Welcome Rimrock Hunter,
You are on the right track. Keep asking. We have some Nevada trappers here. There is lots to learn. Keep at it. Good Luck.
