Howdy! If you plan on relocating the animal, make sure you take it many miles away or it will be back in a few days. Nuisance squirrels that are live trapped have to be taken at least 5 miles, as the crow flies, away. They will come back if you take them less than 5 miles away. Best of luck!
Always,
Gene

I plan on shooting all I catch with a .22
That's the way to do it. I tried hauling cats to barns and lettin'em go.
Some stayed, some came back to crap in my yard, and pee in my garage.

Now, its 22, or shotgun. But no do overs.

Cats make noise when you squeeze'em.
The sit quietly and wait when you feed'm a small cheap can of cat food.

"cats make noise. . ."

use a big enough squeezer and they can't draw a breath to make noise
(so i'm told- :tango_face_surprise i wouldn't bring harm to any kitty myself )

Conibear 160-2, 220-2, 280-2 all work very well for cats, coons, woodchucks, and similar sized pests. I always have some handy.

Thanks, Dinny

Every now and then somebody's small dog, or child gets lose in the neighborhood.
I'm gonna pass on the conibears.

I also use the 220 conibears. Make a box, 12"X12"X24", cut a slot to slide trap in, bait in back. Started using these when I raised a lot of chickens. Set them in the evening and trip in the morning before going to work.

Update on the 220 conibears. I normally do not set them in the summer because you have to get rid of the bodies rather quickly as they swell up real fast. I got tied of the large piles of coon poop under my oak shade tree in front of the house, and the muddy cat tracks on the seat of my 4-wheeler every morning. In two weeks I have caught 4 possums, 4 coons, and 5 large feral house cats, things have slowed down considerably the last few days.
