Things are about as slow for me as for the forum lately so I figured I would start something. I am just starting out and figure I need something to put critters in to transport them. I learned last night that you should remove the animal from the clients property before dispatching it. So I need to come up with a container to put the critters in during transport. I have a Jeep Cherokee and I made a rack that slides into the trailer receiver on the back. I built it so I can place live traps right on the rack. What I am looking for is a container I can carry to where the animal is, and using the catch pole, place the animal inside and then carry it to my Jeep. So I am open to ideas and would love to hear from the pros. Basically, last night the client had a raccoon acting funny in her yard for quite a while. When I got there it looked at me and started moving ssslowly. In hind sight, it would have been quick and easy to use a catch pole and place him in a container and then go off site. I believe this animal had distemper. nh

I have the same vehicle as you. I bought a ready made rack like that, plus I have a small trailer I pull behind it. I'm not ADC, but do that type work for the family and where ever I work, just cause I like trapping. Anyway, I have some of those dog carry boxs you get at the pet store. I have even bought the XL for around $40 used just look around the flea markets and stuff. The XL new is over $100. Just keep them out of the sun while your not using them, or they get brittle. The smaller ones for cats and such are real cheap used. I have a veriety of sizes at hand. Bought them all used over the years. Good luck.

Good idea boom. Got to save a buck if you can. I believe I saw a guy on TV once that had what looked like a large ( 40-50 gal ) plastic trash can with a flip type lid. I thought that was kinda cool but I know the price of Rubber Made products. I will definitely keep my eyes open for something that will work.nh

Oh, I remember that one. Yep, that is another way to go.

rwtrapper hasn't been in on many discussions since deer season. Houndsman transported some coyotes not long ago...we'll see what his input is.
