Easy to escape from
Took several different baits and over a week of trying then whatever got in was able to get out just fine. - Mac
Got to get him in it!
Unfortunately I tried cat food, peanut butter, ground beef, anti freeze, canned fish; he isn't interested in any of it! Any suggestions, before he hibernates? PS the trap is well built just got to get him in it. - David Magsig
the jury is still out
The trap is well made and the concept should work....HOWEVER. After 7 nights I am zero for seven on catching anything, except the interest of a herd of raccoons. The bandits have drug the trap around the yard and figured out that if they turn it over the magic entry door opens right up. I tried putting some weight on top but it got turned over again, judging from the paw prints it appears that they can push through the bottom screen and turn the trap over. The trap is now flanked by 24 inch long pieces of angle iron driven down just enough to run a piece of all thread across the top......bait still dissapeared. This is turning into an episode C.S.I. Next I dusted the top of the trap with Gold Bond power and guess what, the vermin got on the top and reached in to retrive their prize. All this while still having Mr skunk crop dust my property and the smell wafting through the house, it's not too bad if the furnace isn't running and pushing the air around. One other point, I had to screw a small piece of metal over the lift to bait door. The raccoons figured how to lift it on night 2. - Anonymous
Great, simple to use
We believed a skunk had taken residence under our deck. Our dogs kept alerting around our back door, and had they had gotten sprayed several times in the side yard, where the deck ends. I was sceptical, but my wife was insistent, so we made the purchase. I used a mix of wet cat food and peanut butter as bait and set the trap just before dusk. We had a skunk trapped within hours. I picked up the trap and drove it out to a creek several miles away, and let her out. I came back home, reset the trap and went to bed. Next morning, I checked, and BAM second skunk!
He got dropped off at the same place as his friend.
There are a couple wonderful things about this trap; the first, it obviously works. Second, there are no tricky mechanism or trips. It is a simple gate the animal pushes thru, that then closes behind them. The top of the trap is open enough for you to see if you have a guest without getting right on top it. The trap is shallow enough that the skunk cannot lift their tail to spray you; neither of my captures sprayed.
The release is a simple gate you lift (and run away). There is space for the animal to turn around...both of my captures were facing back toward the entrance when I found them, and managed to turn back around to get out.
Lastly, the cage and gates are metal, unlike some competitors. and there is little chance they could fight their way out before you collect them.
I already have neighbors, family and friends asking to borrow our trap, and I would happily recommend it to anyone else. - Tim Y.
