When the time comes that a few sets with foot hold traps are the way you need to work on predators I like number 3 coil spring traps with square off set jaws . You can't just go out and buy a trap that is ready to go out and set they are like any thing else that we use , we have things that we prefer to do that make them more user friendly and that make them better for holding the animal and doing less injury to them . A coyote will tell you where the weak places are in your equipment they work hard on your traps . I like at least 18 " of chain swiveled on the trap at one end of the frame in the middle of the chain and at the end of it . I use 3 links of larger chain on the end so that I can use two or 3 stakes if needed for the ground conditions . My steaks are at least 20 " long 1/2 "rebar with a 5/8 ' flat washer welded on them. The traps have to be adjusted and some modifications made to them . I file the sharp edges of the stamped jaws to round them and make them smooth . I like dogged traps as the dog less traps weren't easily obtained in my area and then they were discontinued un-till the patent ran out on them . There are adjustments to be made on the pan and dog as well as some modifications that I make here also and I will talk on this latter .
