Had the traps set out yesterday so been for a check-up today. Three fields we got 20 critters, but i know a couple have been missed as they have filled the traps. So time for the Talpa's on them. Then went and set another three fields on a new farm that, if all goes well, should be a good place for making a solid income for years to come. Hope i get a few! Here are todays...

Can someone post a couple pics of the setters for the OOS? I picked up some second hand OOS traps less the setters. It would be easier to just order a set but I like to make whatever I can.

Take some advice from someone who traps moles as a living...put those tongs in a heavy duty VICE and squeeze them down, skinnier.
Using them like the ones picture will have you cursing by days end....then paint them florescent orange......you can thank me later ! wink

Ha, got another one of them lil suckers. I guess I'm doin' it right?

The grass is tall so it's hard to see the tunnels. This is how I'm setting, is there a better way? Or am I over thinking it?

Found a 5 leaf last year. my mom can find them like nobody's business, just be walking down the road, glance over and "oh look, a 4 leaf clover!" can't count how many times she's done that.

I haven't used those setters in years. I use the wooden handle on the garden trowel I always have with me. I can set a trap from safety position to set in a couple seconds. Lay tray on its side, pop in the handle against spring and shorter jaw hoop, press and set.
Tripped position takes a second longer.

I'm not really interested in your little "Gotcha" game with the photos, but I've kept the safety hooks on my OOSs for several reasons:

First, they keep the jaws from snatching up dirt and grass when I trip the empties to pull. No need to fear dry-fires, a bane of the newer Chinese OOSs with inconsistent jaw spacing.

Second, setting them from "safe" the way I do with a trowel handle requires a shorter arc which saves time and effort. Heck, I can even speedset by stepping on one jaw and pulling up on the opposite. No lever or trowel needed.

I spend the time it would take to tear off the safety by tweaking that sloppy pan, which probably accounts for more misses than we realize.

I always (except that first spring job!) remember to flip the safety; it's part of my setting routine. So, in a way, I guess you're right: only idiots will leave the safety on.

There are 20 pages of the Mighty Mole Trapper. How many more before he finally gets it straight?

I recently had my first mole trapping experience with a friend of mine. I used a tool he designed and put out about 18-20 Victor Out of Sight traps in about 15 minutes. (They were the first mole traps I ever set.) I ended up with 7 tripped traps and seven moles, no misfires. He claims I am a fast learner, but I had a good teacher! Thanks LT!

Catching a mole ain't too hard, making a living out of it, well, that aint too easy. The main thing is advertising and being able to talk to folks. With those two criteria ticked you're in with a chance. Trapping the little black velvet gentleman's the easy part!!

How about some of these inventors show us these "super" tools and show us how they work?
