Question—do I count it if one gets caught but runs off with the trap and stake?

Ouch, that is pricey!

One of my kills from this past weekend was an odd one. I always trip my traps when I leave, but somehow I missed one of them. I caught a coon on Monday night (Covert verified). He was alive all the way up until the next weekend when I returned. I couldnít believe it. He didnít raise his head when I walked into the pen, but when I put a 22 bullet in his skull he raised all kinds of fuss. I put two more into him, again these are head shots at close range. I undid the other three traps and he rolled over and looked at me when I walked up to him. I put another round in him from my .380. Amazed at his resiliency!

So no, I wouldnít count one that ran off with my trap. You may get him again though so keep trying.

I think I finally caught the big one, or maybe a different large one hanging around. Anyway, it had both front feet in the Dukes ... anyone else ever had that happen?

So Iíve got a couple coming to the house eating the cat food. Caught them on camera. So. Should I set a catch alive trap, or those Dukes traps ? Whatís the chances of catching a cat in the Dukes trap? Pretty sure the dang cats will go in the catch alive trap.

Use the Dukes---only thing besides a coon I've caught is one possum. And add one more to the total from last night's set. Should have caught more but forgot about warm weather and ants and used my go-to banana flavored moon pie for bait---ants loved it, but did catch one coon in a conibear.
