Caught a hard shell possum in an 18" Comstock two door today. Sent a pic off to Jim and he said it was the first report he'd gotten of one in an 18". Gotta love being the first at something.

LOVE these new COMSTOCK traps! Our first catch resulted in a customer posting a review about our quick raccoon capture (they had an unsolved problem for 2 months). Thank you!!!

For the second catch, we set it on its side to capture a trap-smart coon entering a can vent (from the inside).

A raccoon rolled our baited trap and set it off. For round 2, we set a comstock on its side with a single door open & baited. Got em.

traps staked down, anchored will solve the problem of having traps rolled.

Hey Dave, I called Krier last night and one of my questions was " How well does Kugler like his Comstocks?" I think you answered the question.

Come on Dave, you know Krier better than that. If you could palm off your Havaharts on him, the Safequards should be a cinch.

I keep a Comstock trap on the truck at all times now. This is a pic of what was described as maybe squirrels, or bats in the attic.
Pulled one young out of the attic expect to have a couple more. Giving them a night without mom to make it easier.


I like the 18" for chucks:)

Great pics. Looks like that coon trap was upside down and the coon walked on the doors???? Have never done that or heard of it, though wondered if it would work. That is also a first that I know of, just took someone daring enough to try it. Even the weight of the coon walking on the doors did not disturb the trap due to the spring tension in this case holding the door up, and yet the trigger still fired just fine when the coon went through walking "on the ceiling," beautiful. The best part is trappers teaching everyone else how to use the traps, really the fun part in all this, experimenting and coming up new ideas. Think the upside down thing might just be ok after all as it is for beaver in the larger traps, lifts the animal in, pushing up and forward so not much chance of escape.

Great pictures Chris. As you look through the cage, you expect a Lionel train to come shooting through that trap any minute!
