Conibear Boxes for Coons

Tim in PA shares some pictures of how he makes conibear boxes for his 'coon line.  It's always helpful to see a few pictures and get ideas from what other trappers are doing.  Thanks Tim!

I made these coon boxes for the 160 size conibear trap. I made a few "pans" with wood set on a bent trigger at 90 degrees. You really need to put a lot of pressure on these to trip the trap. I doubt a mink would trip this trigger. I will finish these boxes with some cammo paint and add chicken wire to cover the back opening.  I also leave the bottom of the entrance open and have tie wires on the sides to stabilize the trap.  The pictures can be enlarged.
