Some of us are limited to only trapping with confinement traps (cage traps). This is part of this year's catch so far. Not all the bobcats pictures below were taken. Small females and males were released unharmed.

There is dirt on the bottom.
Did you sprinkle that in there, or did the captive animals dig it up through the bars?

I have a couple traps like that, and I am trapping raccoons.
There are no coyotes or bobcats where I live.

I have been trying to get Michigan to allow live traps for years. It would to be great for cats ,fisher and martin here.
After a cat gets caught in a 330 conibear CPR just doesn't work.

Cool Pics!

Judging from all the feathers I'm assuming you are using birds as bait. What kind and alive or dead?

did you build your own traps or are those purchased. If purchased, what brand are they?

That yote looks like he was after the roadrunner. But seriously what are you using for bait? I am wanting to try and trap some cats any tips would be great. THanks

I'd pay money to see the explosion when the door shuts on one of those cats.

Nicely done! My health has prevented me from trapping for several years now, but catching'cats and coyotes was one of my passions. I never tried cage-type traps, though.

Thanks for sharing the photos...

I hate coyotes, and I LOVE calling/kiiling them but I dont think I could kill one like that. He looks too much like my yellow lab begging not to get whooped when he has misbehaved in that picture!

OTOH, the kitties look really cool.... On the back of the truck!

Most likely the feathers were not from live bait. Lots of bobcat trappers use them as a visual lure.

Love the pictures and I think the coyote looks ashamed of himself.
