Post Re: Fox traps
Hi Crinia,

I dont use traps (i prefer a lead projectile at high speed) however i know of a number of people using Jakes, Victors and MB's with good success. Traps can be used to good effect to get problem foxes and dogs that have become wary to humans and or have been previously shot at and survived.
They are also great as you dont have to be there however you would want to be checking on them fairly frequently as they are only trap and hold types, so you will have to kill the captured fox/dog with something else (rifle or shotgun at close range would be suitable).
Check out http://www.australiantrappers.com.au if you want to talk to some friendly trappers. They should be able to help you out with trap advice based on your location (different states have different laws regarding traps that can be used) and http://www.gettrapped.com.au for supplies including traps and scent/lures.
P.s. Just dont spill the lure on yourself... not a very pleasent experience i'm told.

Hope the above helps.
Good luck with the trapping, hope you get the pesky buggers. :thumbright

Cheers,
Rob
