Quick and easy weights
Submitted by Nick Biscotti, Ohio ODNR Trapping Instructor

Trappers are always looking for weights to use in drowning sets or to just secure traps in rivers and ponds. I solved that problem by buying one bag of QuikCrete, a quick setting concrete mix. I use any type of container; coffee cans of all sizes, milk cartons with the top cut off, or any type of containers of different sizes. I mix up a batch of the concrete mix, pour it into the containers, add a small hook or eye screw to each container... Let harden and presto, all sizes of weights to use in the coming season...

Editor's note: Thanks for the tip Nick!
