This style of trap was developed during the 1950's and has steadily increased in use due to the versatility and effectiveness of the trap design. Duke Body Traps such as sizes #330 and #280 are widely accepted by state and federal wildlife agencies as the most effective humane traps for beaver population control.

I purchased these traps to speed up "dispatching" problem skunks around the house. I live on 40 acres and have no problem coexisting with wildlife on my property. However three, maybe four skunks have decided to "visit" a little to close to the house and my chicken coop. I was able to shoot one of the varmints,were he ran away and died. Now not having to deal with the dead animal is nice, I did not like the idea that it had to suffer.
I did a little research on trapping skunks and found about 80% they will not spray when trapped in a body grip trap before dying. That said, they do let go a little of their essence once dead. The smell was gone by the next morning, I removed the corpse from the trap and buried it.
I thought about a live trap, but then the problem is what to do with it once caught. In many states, MN included it is not legal to relocate skunks.
The traps arrived in only two business days, even though the estimated delivery date was a week later.
Dukes are often considered bottom line traps. I have not found this to be the case. I have some Duke 110s and had a 220 until I did not stake it down well enough and the critter was able to drag it out into the woods before expiring. I have had good success with my traps. I did find the 110s a little large for red squires,(to many misses) a regular rat trap works well for them.
I am amazed at all the reviews that complain about the traps rusting. They all rust, rust is good, DO NOT re-coat them with oil. If the rust bothers you, buy some dye on amazon and dye them (but first let them rust so they will take the dye) you can also paint them, but again let them rust first so they will take the paint better. You do not want to re-coat them with oil this will only scare an already leary prey away. Clean the oil off the traps before using them, unless your target animal is a skunk then it doesn't matter as they really have no predators and are not easily frighted.
I would highly recommend to make some boxes for your traps, they funnel the critter to where you want it to go. I attached picture lifted from the internet.
I will echo what others have said, invest in the setting tool. Remember these are non-selective traps, will kill what ever set it off.
