    50 pound coon? lol you must be just kidding. there are some big coon in kansas but none that big i am farly sure.160's make an ok trap i like to 220 better myself since both are leagal in kansas for dry land you might consider that.i like setting traps like what you are talking about for coons and bobcats alike. fun stuff

    Good for you channelkatman, have a good time, I once got a pretty good size coon, he was huge, not quite 50 lb tho. about 36 in long layin there. He pulled the staples holding the barb wire to 3 fence posts. Wish I coulda kept and tanned that one. I got a huge mink once, wish I still had that one too,
