I bought one from Carlis at the NTA. Very well made trap. I think the push/pull will be very beneficial. I can see buying a dozen (in near future). and running against my Grizz's reg. trigger. Be hard to catch a dog(unless a chihuahua) on the push.

They work good. I liked bigger spade staking system. With the two way ring trigger if he bumps the trigge he is caught.

Seem like a pretty good trap. Stiff spring and heavy dog. Got to play with one the other day.

i think the two way trigger offsets the difference in costs. how many coon do you miss with a trigger that just pulls? that alone makes it worth it in my mind. their add states 12% i think, on 100 coon, that's 12 coons possibly gone. at 10 bucks a pop, your out 120.00. that's a 2 doz dp's difference for a one year loss. take that out to a lifespan of 10 years and you lost 1200.00

He also sells replacement two way triggers for the grizz. Should work on the new duke dp also.

not to say it isa poor trap it just that thats what it is advertised as i think most people use them because they have success anyway not because they are dogproof

The explanation that Carliss gives on what makes a trap dog-proof is the hole. Alot of dog proofs out there are push only.

A dog is not supposed to stick its foot straight down a 1 1/4 inch hole.

Has this staking system seen any use in freezing conditions?

IMO one of the only real downers to the Griz's is that the twist-loc is apt to freeze in overnight. Got some of the Duke DP's...interested to see how they handle freezing conditions.

I've held the Coon Daggers...they seem BEEFY, to say the least.

To be considered "dog proof" it is the combination of a small entry hole and pull type trigger.

In certain states and Canada, the push-pull trigger would not be legal as it takes away the aspect of the foot encapsulated coon trap as being "dog proof."

I think the push pull trigger is a great option....sturdy looking trap.
