could someone help me with this conibear problem i have? i had traps set out this year and had animals go around them , so i tried tripping them and the trigger wires were bound so tight that i had a hard time tripping them , so i stuck a screwdriver in the trigger and twisted and i got them working freely but they still trip hard , any ideas to get them to set off at a lighter pressure ?

thanks

Sounds like rust to me

Take a scraper or wire brush and brush trigger jaw good and remove rust so wire trigger moves freely. Did you tree yr conis at all? Need more info . Doesnt sound like you checked yr traps out before season. What are you trapping right now?

Coni questions

Where are you located in Wis. ? If you are close by we could get together and i could help you out. Or possibly during a spring rondevous. Are you going to the BIG WTA spring rondy at Cedar Creek in Wausau in March?
