The Cubby Set
Cubbies can be made out out of wood, wire, rocks, plastic buckets or natural materials found on site. They are equally effective with both footholds and body grippers. Cubbies work well because they funnel the animal through the trap to get to the bait and the cubby shelters the trap and bait from the elements which keeps it operating in bad weather.
Here's a few cubby set examples. All pics can be enlarged by clicking on them.
