Trapping Radio # 53, How to make a pocket set for raccoon, mink, otter or muskrats. From basic to catching 2-5 raccoon on one pocket set in one night.
This week on Trapping Across America we will be talking about how to make pocket sets for raccoon, mink, otter and muskrat trapping. Pocket sets are a simple set, but like everything in trapping the devil is in the details. We cover what a standard pocket set, why they were used so much back in the day. What they were designed for and it’s not raccoons. Once we get a base line for a pocket set, we take the set and use different trap placements in areas of the set to catch different target animals. What we as trappers can do to help our sets not get flooded out and still catch the most fur.
Once we cover a lot of the basic bases of water trapping with pocket sets, we get into more advanced way to use a pocket set to catch more than one animal in one night. catching 2-5 raccoons off of one set in a night is not a pipe dream, but a reality if the trapper goes beyond the basics and normal way of thinking.
