Ask and you shall receive. I should read up on this guys stuff before I post. He's already thought of a theft deterring idea. Fantastic. From his website.

Also incorporated into the unit is the proven Photo on/off switch, this lets the unit shut off during the day, then turn back on during the night, if you cover the photo cell you are able to run the unit 24/7 until the battery’s exhaust. This development has helped to prevent theft and keep battery life at its fullest potential.

In really cold snow country when your lure isn't working at its optimal best, these sqeekers will bring the critters to you set. I have a few of them and the cages I use them on always perform. I really dont know why I dont use one at every set. They pay for themselves in short order.

Ok Scott, your right about the $20. Edge Squeaker, that squeaker had only one sound but in different segments. I tried your idea or burying the squeaker under the back of the cage , it rained and there went my squeaker. You need to protect it from the elements. There was a squeaker years ago that had a photo cell on it and it only squeaked after dark. I doubt if many people will be looking for the rabbit cries after dark. I wonder if Tom has been working with that feature?

I think, that five pounds of flour would make a awful large biscuit.

From reading Tom's wesbite, it seems a 6 volt lantern battery will work them for 2 weeks....

Also, the website does say he uses a photo sensor switch so the squeakers work only at night unless you cover it to make em work 24/7....

I have only taken 3 bobcats in cages and cannot tell you why they do and sometimes dont commit. If law allows it I catch a heck of a lot more of them in a foot hold.
I would really like to hear all the CA and CO guys who are perfecting this technique chime in.

Hey Otie! Ya think!
About 3 years ago Bill Ilchick was working on an electronic devive that had a faint sound like a heart beat. I was hopin' he would start making them so I could put them inside my hanging critters. I think they would eliminate most of the refusals at cages. I havent talked to him in a while so maybe he's still working on them. I think they would be the CATS MEOW!!!
Scott, I hang 'em high just away from the set.

Northcountry, Thanks for your input, but I mean something that might make sounds by the wind, or live animals.

Hummm.


Briarpatch Cages have a pan tensioning feature on the cam. I am able to set it light and catch ants or heavy and miss elephants. Quit cool. Just 2 7/16ths wrenches in my trappers bag keeps my pan tuned to perfection. The nylon washers inside create the tension. Took me a while to figure out, but about 3-4 pounds keeps foxes from dropping my door. Raccoon? Gene, I live in the Arizona Desert. See cam below-

I see many guys default to the faux fur with eye(s) hanger in the back of the cage. Perfectly square and resembles Sponge Bob Square Pants. Why not make it long like a pack rat with a slender tail that can move in the breeze? More eye appeal and not a lot more effort to make.

Logic tells us that if 20 animals come down the trail and are FORCED to go into a 2 door walk-through, the chances of a non-target animal dropping the doors is considerably higher than my single door cage sitting off the trail. With the single door the 20 non-target animals walk by, and a small number might come in and investigate.

Sixbits I like you a lot and your have more good ideas about cages than anyone I know. Ever since Phil left you have been cracking jokes, and that's fine. I know you can contribute positive stuff to this thread, come on, give us a hand! Thanks!! Bob

I've found that not useing urine cuts down on the rabbit and porky catches considerably. They are attracted to the salt in urine.
