Thanks for all the quick advice. Yes, I am baiting the trap with the previous kill. I will try the peanut butter in the large trap tonight.
I have a couple of dogs but we ruined them long ago, now they are sleeping in the house.
I realize that the chicken wire is meager defense against most animals.
I just want to kill the damn thing, but I don't have the resources to hang around waiting to shoot it.
It is pretty smart, I thought it would stick its head into on of the conibear traps and get a nice choke but it just found another way in.
I just went out and nailed down all the loose spots, but I'm sure there are other ways for it to get in.
The problem I see is if I don't kill the thing it will just keep coming back weather it can get in or not.
Keep the ideas coming.
