Curt, I had a feeling that they wont go in. The people that said that they have caught them before in this type of trap even said they had to doctor it up good. They said dont paint the box let it sit outside to let the wood fade. Also said to make the floor of the box like the surroundings, put leaves, pine needles, dirt, etc on the floor of the box, then put sticks around it to camo it out. If this would work it would great because the property that I would be putting the trap on has a bunch of log and branch piles on it from clean ups. I wanted to put the box in one of the log piles with a big juicy hunk of meat. But like you said maybe it wont work?
