Bucket traps
« on: September 05, 2006, 03:54:35 PM »
has anyone seen or heard or tried the traps from thishttp://ironcitytrapcompany.com/index.htm

im thinking of getting the 5 gal bucket trap, i was wondering what other people might think of these traps
"I was hostile to the white man...We preferred hunting to a life of idleness on our reservations. At times we did not get enough to eat and we were not allowed to hunt. All we wanted was peace and to be let alone. Soldiers came...in the winter..and destroyed our villages. Then Long Hair (Custer) came...They said we massacred him, but he would have done the same to us.

Well, I don't know the regulations where you live, but personally I would do a cubby set with a 220 Conibear Trap and be done with it.  Less crap to tote around, less stuff jammed in your vehicle, less expensive, and the conibear does the killing for you.

iv been looking for alternatives to the regular live cage traps
i have to have live traps because i dont want to risk killing/sieriously injuring something im not supposed too. conibear does have good and very effective traps for $ though your right about that.killings never been a problem for me.

Well, if you are trapping close to your home and live in well populated area, I can see using those bucket traps. O0

However, if you are far off the beaten path and catch a feral cat, you would be doing the small game population a big favor. ^-^

By the way, I wasn't saying you had a hard time doing the killing, I was just saying, why waste the bullet. 8)

im allways tryign to do the small game population a big favor. do you think the 5gal trap would be to small for bobcat or lynx of some sort.

I think it would be fine for lynx and smaller bobcats. :-\

Maybe the trap for thr 55 gallon size, you could catch an adult bobcat or lynx. I know you won't be able to catch an adult sized one in a 5 gal. sized one. I saw another bobcat at work lately, and I know you couldn't fit him into 2 5 gal. buckets.

Oh, come now, John. I'm sure if you made the cuts in the right places and maybe stamped it down, you could pack almost any bobcat into a couple of 5 gallon buckets... :twisted:
