We have used this style for years. Just put a couple pieces of dry dog food in the bait well and leave it alone. Mouse sticks thier snout in the bait well and whack.

Ever seen those videos on you tube showing people with night vision on pellet guns setting up in barns at night? Looks like a blast.

Sounds like the trigger needs adjusting. You want it so that ANY contact, no matter how light, will set it off.

In my bachelor days I had a "trap line" of a dozen traditional wooden Victors. I had the triggers set so light that they'd often go off if I walked by them too fast. Every morning half of the traps would be full.

I eventually got tired of the BS and brought home a Manx cat..................no more mices.

Where can a guy get a half dozen of those?

Here in Northern Minnesota and at the Summer house in NW Ontario we use a water anti freeze 50-50 mixture in the bucket, Keeps the liquid from freezing and the little bastids from stinking when you're not around to empty the catch bucket every couple of days.

I was getting a dozen raccoons, Eastern gray squirrels, rats, and crows.

Then the wife said I would just running a bird feeder to attract pests so I could kill them.

She was right, and 2017 has been mostly just mice.
