There is one letter on this key board that explains the results of these improved bucket sets (the $ sign). No matter the furbearer, the results are the same,,, If the trigger fires, the animal retires!!

Hey BigMoo3
You can use bucket sets here in PA. You just have to have the conibears in a waterway which means they can be on dry land as long as the water is on that part of the land part of the year. I have tried them for coons but have not had any luck. You have too keep an eye on the weather. Once a big rain hits it washes them out.

In that case... it rains so there is water on any land part of the year. I don't think they would accept that excuse though. They would probably call you a smart alleck. :D

Hi YP, you certainly are a neighbor. Glad to have you at this web site. Here's another photo of my improved "cubby bucket set." Some of my marten lines are nearly 50 miles long. These types, generally get checked once every 2-3 days. The shorter lines will get checked daily. While I prefer to have my sets above 4 ft. in height, these daily runs allow me to make lower wooded sets. Females - such as the one shown below, can be taken in these.

Hello,
Nice catches. I haven't had the time to run that extensive of a line, but I have gotten out on smaller lines. This year, our rules changed and we have to set all bodygrippers above four feet, to try and prevent the catch of a Canadian Lynx. I have noticed that the female marten are quite a bit more hesitant to climb than I would have thought. This year I also have not taken any mink in the trees, which would happen pretty often, with cubbies on the ground, especially when near small brooks. Is there any reason why the mink wouldn't climb a leaning pole set?

Chris
