Heavy-Duty Live Traps
“I have three of them,” says trapper Butch Hooverson. “They are awesome. I caught over 100 raccoons in one for pest control and never broke a wire.”
Yoder started making the traps about 10 years ago based on a design from a friend who had died. Over the years he made some upgrades, improving it to the point where he can offer a 5-year warranty.
“I use 5/16-in. rod to weld the frame together and wrap it with 12-gauge chicken wire. I use real hog rings to fasten the chicken wire to the frame,” Yoder says, noting that even the strongest raccoon can’t break the heavy rings.
The 22-lb. cages are 12 by 12-in. sq. and 36 in. long. Yoder offers two models. One has a solid back ($110) and another has a back door for baiting or releasing ($125). He sells them at his shop and a few area businesses, but can also ship and welcomes inquiries from wholesalers.
