My 220s are old and crappy. ( kinda like me ) What's the consensus of opinion on what to use on raccoons. ( I only need a couple for those impossible ones )

Ron, it's probably my age, but that is a very funny post! Knowing me, I'll probably buy a couple of each one mentioned. If you wonder why our company has never been mentioned in the Fortune 500, I think I'm the reason.

Paul W.,
I just checked. The dozen that I have are Duke. I bought them over 20 years ago. We canít legally use body grip traps with a jaw spread over five inches, except in water. I have used them only for otter in trails through cattails. They are very effective for otters in small trails. We donít have muskrats or mink locally. Have never seen a raccoon in a chimney. Have never found a use for them, except for otter. It is interesting to see how techniques and tools vary around the country.

You can't go wrong with the belisle of any size. What I like about them is their safeties and their springs. I have caught ground hogs by the foot and they were not able to escape. They are fatal if caught anywhere near where you meant to catch them. I have a few 220s many 160's but I have started to use belisle 120's in most situations. They are fatal, make neck catches on coon, ground hogs,squirrel size animals with just a little trigger adjustment and hard for most dogs to get deep into.
Just in case me or a dog owner does something stupid. The trap is not stupid it does exactly what it was bred and trained to do but sometimes human error gets it in trouble. I wish all employees were as reliable and predictive as the trap.
You can compare prices and I think you will find WCS competitive but the reason I would buy them from Alan is for about 3.00 each you can get them armour coated. Plus they sponsor this fun place. I have had them in and out of the weather, water for years and have never had any rust or maintenance except occasionally a trigger.
So instead of working on traps you can spend more time posting here or other fun things.

It also seems the balisle has a little stronger springs on them. But what i like best is they won't pass around the ends of the trap when fired. I like the 160's.

Thanks Rick! I guess I like the idea of the Belisle but up 'til now I was wondering if there was something wrong with the 220.

i get a more consistant catch and quicker dispatch with a 5x5. ive had to many coon still alive caught by the hips in 220s. 5X5 hits them right behind the ears everytime. same with hogs.

5x5 is now my choice coon, g hog trap it makes for sense ...legal in more states more consistant kills right behind the ears. If your nuisance trapping on buildings its perfect they wont refuse the trap they have to come out. the bridgers are cheap and smash just fine. but if we could use 160 belisel i would rather have a magnum trap. for adc if i was just buying a few but i bought like 4 dozen 5x5 bridgers for fur trapping as well marten fisher coon and more.

IMO 160S FOR TRAILS 22OS FOR BUCKETS AND CUB BOXES where leagal. have more trouble with 280s not killing than either 220s or 160s.i use the cheaper dukes and bridgers so i can own way more.i have gang set 5x5s next to 6x6s and 7x7s alot and some times all connect but most times it is the 220s and 160s (as far as buckets and boxes go)i sold all my 5x5s will buy them again if i have to for leag. reasons. dont know about hogs as it is against the law to trap or hunt them in nebraska.

for fur trapping where legal 220 is totally the way to go, this is the adc forum so presumed ther post was in regard to nuisance situations, which are usually set up as positive catch. in this situation the coon has little choice but to go through the trap. Of course if he is given options he will choose the less restrictive, larger trap.

I'm amazed you cant trap ground hogs there.
