I just finished building a repeating coon trap out of a 55 gallon barrel. I havent been able to set it out yet so I dont know if it will work. As soon as I put it out and it works, I will post some pics. It is pretty ugly so I wont post pics until I can say it works. :biggrin:

OK, took a minute of look'n at the picture to get it through my head, but after I finally saw it right I got it. Might have to make a couple of these, be cheaper than store bought live traps.

Doesn't look like it would be that hard to make. One thing about the trap is the coons dont go crazy in it, guess they feel safer in the bucket, I dont know. I've caught em' in square wire traps and they come unglued when you approach.

Dispatch

How would you dispatch animals?
I guess when you say "dispatch", you mean get em' out? :confused: Uh..... you gotta open the door. :razz: The rod is threaded about half way down and has a coupling in the middle so you can unscrew it and pull it out. Coons will grab that pedal sometimes and you cant shake em out. When you take the rods apart, the paddle and the coon will all come out.

Bar

I looked and looked and could not see how a bar slides on that . could you give a better pic of the bar that slides to hold the door down..
Im not where I can take a pic of the trap but heres a pic of what it looks like. It just slides up and down the front, sized to where it wont come off. Hope this helps.
