Trapping Radio – 103 – Trapping out of State, Freedom Brand FB1 and FB2 dog proof traps


trapping radio podcast

This week on Trapping Across America we are looking at the down and dirty reality of  out-of-state trapping. What it is like, what you should know and what are some of the mistake trappers make. Out of state trapping is fun and exciting, but no matter how fun it is, reality has a way of creeping into the trip.

Then we look at the Freedom Brand FB1 and FB2 dog proof traps. The FB1 is not like a normal dog proof trap and so trappers are not getting the performance they are hearing about. So I go into my experience with them. How to tune them for really high performance. The Freedom Brand FB1 dog proof trap is  like a race car, you don’t tune it and perform maintenance on it and the production slows down. Then we talk about the new FB2 Freedom Brand dog proof trap. We have been able to use them trapping raccoon, so what are our thoughts.

I am being asked questions from Norm Blackwell on our Texas trapping trip. I should be able to be back on track with a normal show schedule since I’m just back from Texas. Hope every one had a great trapping season.

The Predator Control Group product of the week is Cat Collector.

Cat Collector is the same bobcat lure that Predator Control Group only used to catch 84 bobcats on a single ranch in 45 day. If you have seen the CAT COLLECTOR DVD, this is the only bobcat lure that was used to take up to 9 bobcats in a single day. The lure is thick, can be smeared, handles the sun and sheds water. One aspect of Cat Collector is that we have had out bobcat sets for over a month and the lure still smelled the same, strong and musky, after a month! If you were to check in Clint Locklears trap bag on his personal bobcat line, CAT COLLECTOR would be the only cat lure in his bag.

 CAT COLLECTOR is a three part bobcat lure. There is a exotic food base, two powerful musks and a strange odor that stops cats in their tracks. What is better than stopping a cat, is a lure that they have to get close too, real close too. This lure has amazed me on the test line and trap line. If you want or need to catch a lot of cats, you can not go wrong with Cat Collector. What was surprising. is how it took coyote after coyote. What makes this different, is our cat sets are blocked hard, feathers and a large flag. Coyotes do not like these trap set factors, but they just could not seem to help themselves. The coyotes had to get to this lure no matter what.  I have had a lot of coyote trappers use Cat Collector for their dedicated coyote lure on both dirt hole sets and flat sets. Not only that, there have been several trappers that are hammering fisher, martin and big bore raccoons with this lure. This is not your normal skunk, castor or cat nip bobcat lure, Cat Collector is in a class all by itself, first class!

Bobcats can be hard to come by sometimes, so why would you chance your cat catch to a cheap mass made bobcat lure. You owe it to yourself to use the best bobcat lure you can get your hands on, and this is it. Stop the bobcats that are walking by your sets. Stop using a bobcat lure that most cats could care less about! Try out some CAT COLLECTOR and fill up your cat stretchers with some spots.
