I don't know probably the 1/16 will that hold a coyote??? and acutally Ill send it tomorrow because the last pickup was at 5:00. and Ill pack it with freezer pucks and packing peanuts so it doesn't get all nice smelling for ya because Im guessing you don't like surprises :lol: :lol: :lol:

Some of the dumpster diving possums can grow quite large....and I can assure you that they get just as ugly as they do large.

Hint for those who have just begun to deal with possums....they will bite! Don't be fooled by the stories of them "playing possum", it is true they will go comatose, but more often than not, they will attempt to snap at you like most other animals trying to get free from captivity.


And if they ARE playing possum, DO NOT think you can just reach down and pick them up. You'll get bit. Image


if ur dumb as me and really want to mess with em while they are still alive BE CAREFUL use a stick so they cant swing around and bite u. pick it up by the tip of the tail. they arent the fastest animal in the world and pay attention he will prolly try to swing up and bite u and when he does just give him a shake...lol i toted one around with me for a night and thats what i did when i had it out of his toe sack...not all that bad it ended up loose in my friends house my jeep twice, another guys truck, taco bell parkin lot and sonic parkin lot lol

thats no big deal, he probably give it to me... some of those things in the one freezer aint seen the light of day in 2 years. theres no market for our coyotes so we dont sell them unless i tan them up first and sell them that way. same thing with a few other items in there. but i can see what hes got.

yea I would trade for snares the problem I have is they require relaxing snare locks to be legal here. I would also trade for 330 220 110 conibear or leg hold traps #2 or smaller.( I know that that would be a lot less quanity) I will get some pics of the higes tonight after work
