Post by: JakeLand on January 09, 2020, 08:08:25 PM
Iím starting a little slow this year ! But with the koro trap for marten is a little trial and error had a marten break the cable and never found so Iím changing to chain with a swivel which I think is s must do

Absolutely!! Specially since the second was in a set you helped make ! I think it gets really good area past where that one was caught maybe another half mile further in

In a hours time of making one set and the last making our way out we found where a marten crossed our trail and checked out a box which we think we scared him off the set

teapot ? My main bait is a BIG  chunk of beaver with some castor for scent in the cage . But cats have weak noses so hanging a duck wing off of a limb with fishing line so it flutters and swings is key and on that wing I put western cats cane killer gell on it and whewww itís got the aroma

Ok whatís working for me on holding the koro in the box is pressure. 4Ē from the back of the box I staple a 1/2Ē thick lat stick down then put the koro snugged up to it and staple one in front of the koro so itís got  ďsqueeze ď pressure against the trap

(https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20200226/591bc532726878e4dbc75cc8ec4f28b7.jpg)
I can set these boxes straight vertically on a tree and the trap stays put and when it triggers on a critter it comes loose they swing out and itís worked well for me
Hopefully this helps
Jake

im all about trappng and body gripping traps etc and dont want this to come off as a "policeing" comment. but how is this legal in washignton, or is this in watshignton and if so, how do you get around the "death traps" or body gripping criteria.  technically isnt a mouse trap a body gripping death trap? according to the law isnt trapping mice technically illegal.  i just want to find a loophole around this trapping law

Thanks for the pictures Jake, they makes it very clear.  I have all mine stapled down but have had some experiences that make me think having them loose after the catch would be better.
