Yes! Gene a two door certainly has it's positive places, John and Tod designed a good one. I don't know how their pan tension works but I'm sure they have already figured it out. Thanks!! Bob

Trapper876, I wouldn't know what to do without urine misted on my sets. I think it hides whatever scent I might leave behind, and gives the Cat more confidence!

Jeff, Relax, I have your Cage ready for shipment. Have you ever used the wind, or use live animals, to make noise at your sets?

John, I'm on my break, I have plenty to do. Have plenty of cold Bud Light at Fort Morgan!

Thanks for your input, guys!! Bob

Never used live animals or the wind for the devices that make noise. In my neck of the woods, the wind usually dies down at night. I will say though that back in the early eighties, my biggest catch ever was when the wind was howeling all night long at about 60 MPH. ??????

Gene- I'm not knocking you and the use of walk through cages just want you to help me understand.

Can you show me a set with a walk through cage that would be better than a single door? I guess I tend to only look for single door locations when placing traps.

John- Do you have pan tension on your double door cages?

Someone snapped a picture of John in Wyoming.

Jeff, I have a little trick I use to catch vermin's alive in the back of my cages. They make a lot of noise and catch a lot of Cats!

Scott, That's the way, don't get Gene pi--ed, he's a good guy, and knows a lot about getting Cats to commit to Cages!

John, your busier than me, what are you doing on here at this hour?

Otis, This thread will not be scuttle butt, I know you have been using squeakers, we can all learn together. Have you had good results with Squeakers? See you at the Fort. Thanks!! Bob

Maybe I can answer that question , Here in Colorado where I live we have a lot of rimrocks with narrow fencing points that cats naturally travel through . A double door see through cage is almost custom designed to be placed in these spots with out having to appeal to the animals three senses . The cat is already accustomed to traveling through these naturally fenced in areas and will not hesitate to continue doing so even if the area has a double door trap in its place. Once you get in the mindset of having double doors for these choke points you start to find perfect places for them . Just another thing in our arsenal to catch cats .

Last Chance, use juniper duff or buckwheat hulls, when the ground freezes a lot of guys make the bottom of their Cages so the water drains away, and stops them from freezing down.

Spotted Fever you mean Bobcats are the only animals that travel these naturally fenced in areas? If so, it sounds like a good idea with no pan tension!

We are drifting away from what "Sounds" to use in Cage Sets, the walk through doesn't need sounds. Thanks! Bob

No Bob, Otie dont use sqeakers at his sets. I've been on his line with him. He prefers Mister Twister Spinnerbait Bass lures, and big ol' home made biscuits! LOL

Bob I was answering the question that Hyperwyx asked about where to set walk through traps ! No where in my response did I talk about pan tension or say that the traps that I was using did not have pan tension . You seem to keep trying to keep people on track but you keep throwing in digs towards others! I do not respond often and do not appreciate your response . I was trying to help enlighten Hyperwyx on the values of walk through traps . Thanks Dan

Spotted Fever- I appreciate the explanation of an example of where to situate a walk through double door trap. As I said if I had a few I would probably seek out locations where I could use them.

Bob is new to posting on internet forums. Cut him a bit of slack. It's like putting a kid who just learns how to drive in the Indianapolis 500 and wonder why he holds up traffic. He'll figure out how to respond to people and direct his comments accordingly in time. I can promise you, he's not being malicious on purpose.

With regards to the double door, I assume you block alternative pathways through the channel. ever find bobcats that just opt to jump right over the trap rather than walk through a strange corridor?
