The first pic is location along the lake bank. I like this set up it has yielded alot of coon some rats and mink. I like a bank that is a little higher than the water.
The second pic is of the tools i used to make the set i used a piece of field drainage pipe about 20 inches long, a victor 1 1/2 with the square pan. And my trap shovel for digging in the bank.
The 3rd pic is of the hole being dug to proper depth and width of pipe. Remember to save the dirt for filling around the exposed pipe.
The 4th pic is the pipe inserted in the bank hole. Then the dirt is applied to the pipe to cover at least 3/4 of pipe. Leaving at least 4 inches exposed.
Now the 5th pic shows the set with the camo flage added. and the trap placement. i set the trap where just the pan is exposed. The pipe is extended beyond the bank the trap is set about 3 inches in front of pipe this is to force the coon to the deeper water at the end of pipe and away from bank. He will have to raise up to see in pipe which puts his back foot in trap. Trap is attached to a drowner wire and the coon is deep sixed.
The final pic is everything set up and the set at a distance. This is what the coon sees. Now a little bait and lure to the hole and your set to catch those coons at the waters edge.
Thanks for looking DH
