So I was wondering is a bucket set with a 160 coni better for a blind set or a dog proof if you know coon are on a property but your having a hard time finding their trails in the hardwoods?

I've never used the bucket set but there's no way to go wrong with DP's.  Buy some fish oil or make your own concoction of Jack Mackerel and Sardine juice or used fish cooking oil or what ever and if they can smell it they will come to it...d2

I've used buckets before I got DP's and caught coons just fine. White buckets, spray painted with black paint to help camo them. I used a saw to cut the notched in the top of it to help hold the conibear in place. Just throw your bait in the back and wait.

Daddy bought some black newspaper "mailboxes".  They were a perfect fit for a 160.

Yea I built my first cubbie from a five gallon bucket and wanted to test fire it, when I did I used a long stick and thought I was ok until the trap came flying out of the bucket.  Scared me to death.

Follow the edge of a creek/road where coon tracks are present. With observation you can find places where a coon travels around a root, rock, etc. Bed foothold trap where this occurs, wtih the pan where his track was. That would be a blind set. No bait or scent just set where animal steps.

I used a 160 in a cubby years ago and caught a neighbors dog, since I trap close to civilization I don't use them anymore, DP's and dry cat food soaked in what ever, sardine juice, shellfish oil, or fermented corn. dog proofs are expensive but I enjoy the peace of mind knowing I won't catch someones pet.
