    hey guys just letting you know that this is my FIRST year trapping and i dont know what im really doing. but let me get to the point. smitty, youre traps are of very good quality. i had a muskrat get hooked on a long spring and it pulled the stake out and went 3 feet before it drowned. also caught two this morning up to 3 muskrats. i used that 1 1/2 duke and 1 3/4 you sent me and caught 2 coons as well. seasons going great and the 110s arent really producing. the way you set one is put the 110 in front of the hole right? cuz thats how im doing it as well as putting the footholds in front of the hole and that seems to work! any more tips?
