    Default Trapping something large

    OK I am in the pest control industry and fully licensed, turns out I have a problem in my front yard, I am going to set up a game camera - my squirrel traps are being trashed, by something bigger. I have 15x15x30 traps but this hasn't worked. I am thinking Fox or Eastern Coyote, I am not happy with what I saw on tractor supply. I need a bigger trap. Or I will build one, lately my squirrel traps are ending up a 100 yards away from where I set them. so I tent pegging them down.

    looking for suggestions.

    Cable off the traps to something solid if you can. Set up a trail cam and see if you can get a photo of the culprit. That should help you to know what you are dealing with.
    There ain't too many problems you can't fix with $500 or a 30-06.

    there must be sign. If it is some kind of canine the best trap in my opinion is a snare.
    so the definition of a criminal is someone who breaks the law and you want me to believe that somehow more laws make less criminals?

    Do you have 2-legged critters in your neighborhood that don't believe in traps?
