    Trapping pics

    Anyone got some interesting trapping pics to share? Here's a good sized possum caught on Mt Egmont virtual barrier showing that a good high set in kiwi country still does the business, and a ferret caught in a cage trap on an apple bait (go figure)...

    You'll have lots of fun trapping there Jaffa177, checking traps in the morning is good times, never know what you're going to catch. I recon they should make a trapping forum on here as it's a unique activity, separate from hunting, fishing etc. Have you used leg holds before? Bedding the trap is key, keep chain short and out of the way. Lure can vary but flour and icing sugar are the standard base for blaze

    Looks like he has hung it up there to let it bleed out micky.

    If you look closely the long chain is twirled round the tree with a hitch and a twist on a bite to shorten it

    This one was caught using parts of the previous kill after he showed an appetite for said parts.

    Who had been in the trap to get apples before the ferret?, my guess is the ferret went sniffing after the scent of a previous guest at Rodent Resort. < There is an idea for a 'catchy' name for your trap.

    That's a nice looking pig trap Sheaer. Was the door spring loaded on some sort of trip wire?

    Door is hinged at the top and on an angle so gravity closes it when triggered. It closes into the frame so can't be pried open from the inside. A string runs along the top of the trap and then down to a "trigger" stick which has bait around it. Pig knocks stick when eating bait - door swings shut.
    As you can see. Very inportant to have a roof.
