I am wanting to put some chain on some wolf fang earth anchors.  What size chain do you all recommend?  Targeting coyotes and bobcats using K9 Extremes and MB550 traps.  Thanks in advance.

I ran a few last season with 4 of 2/0 on top of a 12 1/8 cable to disposable.
Even that small amount of chain makes for a heavier trap set up. That may not be an issue for you.
I had some a while back I thought Id be smart and weld the jhooks closed on. (18 of 2/0 American) I ended up driving one through a tree root, so at the end of season I cut it free from the trap. Ive been utilizing that location for 7 or 8 yrs now with a quick link. Every year my backing gets closer and closer
