Just wondering what you use the most.

I still use leg holds as drowning sets as it is still legal here untill 2007 then the traps have to be of an approved type. I have made some submarine traps for muskrat/mink and am going to make one for beaver/otter. I am going to use some snares for coyotes/cats this fall and use the leg hold snare for bear, and I do use some body gripping/connibear traps for beaver and muskrat.

I mostly have leg hold traps, but also own some connibears. We have to use soft catch leg holds for anything above ground.

I'm goin with Conibears because once you set them you don't have to worry about checking them everyday. I usually check mine about every other day or every 2 days but if something comes up and I can't get out to check them I don't have to worry....if i have anything it's allready dead! :mrgreen:
