Trap Triggers
« on: September 07, 2018, 06:42:17 PM »
Hey Folks,

I'm new to trapping and I'm currently building some cages for mink and muskrats. Would you recommend I go with traditional pan trigger or pull triggers? I found a design where the animal pulls on the trigger and closes the door. I plan on using muskrat meat for mink and apples and carrots for rats.

I have a simple design for pull triggers you can make your self.  Works great for mink and ermine and muskrat.  Happy to share

18-24 depending. That one pictured is my longest. It works great as a skunk trap
