Being my first year trapping, my main target has been coyotes. But 3 weeks ago I made up some bucket sets and bait cans. All I have caught were worthless, yet destructive to the upland bird population, grinners. But today I was pleasently supprised with a 16 lb boar in a 220 duke conibear. I like to look at catches on this forum, so I thought I'd post my own. Good luck on the trap line all!!

Nice looking coon and good catch area. I like not having to dry your catch.Not trying to rob your post but buckets are a great tool,.....unless you need to release something. Always consider the fact there may be a hunting dog around, if the owner is only a 100ft. away he will still be too late. Since you and all the rest of us like pic's.....

I like buckets because they don't freeze and thaw and you can adapt them to most situations. If you have an area you want to set where there are a lot dogs you can put them up a leaning tree like a martin set. I saw a guy doing it w/good results. Good Luck!
