Today i built this coon cubby. It didn't take very long. In the end with out the slots is a piece of plexi-glass,but u can't tell in these pics. I plan on putting a bridger 220 mag in the slots and putting Mr. Coon a whole pile of goodies in the back and hopefully he won't get them.

*I added "[img]"%20and%20"[/img]" tags so we could see your pics. Click the edit button to see how I did that. Keith, Site Admin. :)

He said a 220.

That looks great. Love the design and clear backing. Good luck with it!

It wouldn't hurt to put a little overhang on the front of those 4-6 inches. Just my 2 cents worth.

Good job on the cubby,but if I could pass on some advice on your boxes.All of my boxes are 30" long and just big enough for my 220's to fit in.My slots are around 8" deep.The reason that I build my boxes like that is to try and make it as hard as possible for someones hunting dog to stick there head in my trap.If you are lucky enough to be able to place 220's on dry land you should do everything in your power to reduce the chance of making non target catch's.Now please remember that this is just my opinion.

keeps the coon from avoiding your trap and it will also make the coon think he can go all the way through

I have used buckets. The only thing I can think of that is a con is they are light and might blow/wash away easily.
