Maddog, how big are those wooden pans? Your boxes are 24" deep by 18" high? You drill your holes at a angle into the wood and bend the out?

coalminer.

No,no!!!! The top or shall I say the roof of the box is 24" long to better word myself. The two side boards are 18" long. The height or inside diameter just fits a 220 or if I'm using 160's the inside diamter just fits a 160. The wooden pans are 4" x 1.3/4" Drill your holes straight through, slide wire triggers straight through and bend horizontal to pan. When I sent Jerry the photos I took they should show what I'm explaining, if not take a look at the third picture of the cat wearing the 220 for a necklace and you should get an idea. I do bend my pans up to approximately a 45 degree angle.

Old Madddog is proving to us all that cats can consistently be caught in Conibears. With cats near 40# hanging in his fur shed every year. May not be the most effective method in all states but it sure fits the bill in the North Country.

Maddog, I am with you now, had a senior moment. I plan on trying some coni's for coons using 160 Belisle's. We have to keep our coni's in the creeks here in PA. What brand of coni's do you use and like?

Coalminer,

I prefer the BMI brand myself. Would use all Belisles if I had 2poors or Wheelers money. BMI is a tough conibear to find so will probably be doing some conibear studies this summer.

Sorry, read only are few comments and I jumped right in with a comment without reading the rest. Questions answered. Another question maddog, are cats as standoffish when it comes to human tracks, scent, etc around the boxset (baiting the trap)? I don't think this has been asked. Thanks.

Donny,

Very tough question to answer. What I have found is the answer for the most part is "no". One thing I'm strong on is checking my boxes every 3 three days to be sure the voles, mice, squirells, etc have not cleaned my bait out. This obviously means going up to the box. I have foot tracks all over the snow. This has never stopped cats from being caught, HOWEVER, I have had cats approach within 10 feet or so of my boxes and leave. WHY???? Were they reluctant to approach because of the tracks, did the wing fluttering above the box bring them in out of curiosity, were they just not hungry enough to pproach,did my call lure bring them in out of curiosity, perhaps they were just being typical fickle cats. But overall I will say that foot prints do not bother 90% of the cats. As for human scent, absolutely not. They are not afraid of it. I dont wear gloves when setting my conibears, I bare handed use a stick to spread call lure on my wing and toss it either in the box or on top of it. Little to no attention is made by me when it comes to human scent.

Maddog47,

Thanks for the indepth explaination. I'll be definately setting up some coni boxes this weekend. Haven't heard of too many cats in my neck of the woods but I'll give it a try and see what I get. Thanks again, very informative.
