I read an article last year about a guy who used a newspaper tube with a coni 160. then i saw an add in another magazine for the company that makes them. www.continentalproducts.com  so I decided i would try them out and ordered a dozen of the route master size. i think they were about 6 or 7 dollars per tube. they came the next day and cut the side slots for my coni 160's and tried them out. they worked great for coons and grinners and caught a few skunks. they come in black unless you want a different color. no more buckets yee ha. these boxes fit the 160 like a glove, they are light weight, stackable and the trap jumps perfectly out of the box if you cut the slots correctly. they are easy to conceal if you want to do that. i guess this sounds like an advertisement. dont mean it that way just wanted to pass along a good tool to you fellow trappers.

Do you think the King would be a better fit or TOO tight?

the route master is the best because that measurement is the outer most measurement. by the time you get the trap set into the box it is well under the top lip of the box i am out of time but will try to get my wife to get some pix so i can post them

I looked at the site and like the size...it is deep enough you can set a 160 in it far enough back to keep most dogs out of it and if they did manage to set it off it should only whack them on the nose...

Wonder what the optimum depth would be to still catch the big boar coons but still keep most dogs out of it   Undecided

while running beaver traps today i saw a red bucket in the open woods to my left. i thought now thats a good spot for a bucket set right in between 8 or 9 pin oak tree's loaded with acorns.
when going over to check the bucket out and to make sure its good enough to take home and use for something.
oh crap half a dogs body is outside the bucket and he's just laying there. it seems to me someone fixed a bucket up to keep raccoons away from their feeder, this was what i was thinking. i couldn't see how they had the conibear and what size it was, because this was a 5 gallon bucket.
i kicked the bucket hard enough to kick the carcus out of the way, because its been hot and i'm sure a dead dog stinks right about now.
s--t he ran one way and i ran the other, after we both got about a 100 yards apart we stopped and looked at one another and tried to figure out what happen.
well the 5 gallon red bucket was the dogs home or shape spot. no trap was set anywhere around there and the bucket looked like someone might have carried some feed of some kind for deer and i guess the dog licked it clean and fell asleep.
the onl bad part of the hole thing is i lost 2 years off my life. LOL LOL

Not sure how folks feel about reviving such an old thread, but assuming more people have played around with these cubbys since it was posted, what is the answer to neotoxo's question?

I think Rocky calls them necroposters Thumbs Up!.  Bring'em all to the top this place can get kinda quiet sometimes.
I tried the smaller paper tubes for mink but didn't have any luck, the trap wouldn't hardly fit in there with the Sunday times record Doh!
