I'm wanting to trap coons at my parent's property since they had been in my deer corn all season & the only problem with coil spring traps is my parents have cats & they would prefer me to use live traps. I looked at live traps & they are going from $35 & up. I was looking to have 5+ traps so at that price it would get pricey quick so I looked into making something that might work.
Its just making a rabbit box larger to work for trapping coons. Anyone see any problems in making it 32inx12inx10in & putting wire fencing on the sides & possibly the bottom instead of wood so you could shoot through it?
Found this pic of a rabbit box, just make it larger for a coon?
