    I bought a six dog proof traps and a buddy gave me 4. I'm going to get after them come Fall. And will do it every fall from here on out.

    FWIW, I catch some in DP's every year, they do work. But you may find that some of the wilier masked bandits will not get snagged in one of these style of traps as often. I also use 220 conibears, live cage traps and a few conventional footholds to round out the arsenal.

    I have noticed though that the bigger, presumably older and smarter, ones show up in the regular foothold style more often. Water edge sets like pocket sets or fish stick sets are good, but the good ol' dirthole is probably the best overall set IMO and you will also give yourself a better chance at a bobcat or coyote that way too. Good luck!!

    Wandering mind in the stand this fall. Everyone seems to agree you need two rows of fence. My thought was could a guy just used 7 or 8' t posts pounded in at a slant and put the 3 wires on that post?

    I haven't updated anything in a while. Pulled the fence out right before gun season. They must not of found it until the first sunday of second season. Food plot was loaded up. Next year we go bigger and better. More beans and more fence.

    Wire is easier to string, and I think it carries the current better. Tape is more visible unless you tie markers to the wire for visibility, but that's a pain in the butt as well.
    Wire is also easier to splice together, but harder to roll up at the end of the year imo.
    I've used both, and probably will continue to do so..
