Peanut butter and marshmallows go in at night, chicken eating, garbage can wrestling raccoons and possums buried in the morning. No instructions were found in the packaging, but you can find YouTube videos. You are going to need a way to chain the trap to a tree so the trap doesn't go off with the animal. I use a 60 lb. rated dog leash. Trap takes considerable strength to set; some people may require help to set it.
Remember, there are not too many choices when you catch something in this trap. There is not going to be any "releasing" going on; unless you like being mauled. I'm not a big fan of relocation anyway. You need to take care of your own problems not drop them off near my house. =-)
That said: it definitely works. I caught my marauder the first night I set it out, after nearly a month of trying to catch it with the live trap using all my best no-fail tricks.
This trap is VERY sturdy and will probably last for generations, but I have to say I was dismayed at first with how hard it was for me to set. I could only squeeze the spring if I used every bit of strength in both hands, and that left me no hands with which to actually set the lever. (Yah, go ahead and snort, boys.) Fortunately the instruction sheet it comes with (well, mine came with one, anyway!) described an alternative method for setting that involves using a screwdriver as a lever, and that worked just fine.
A sturdy length of chain is welded to this trap, and I wrapped that around a steel fence-post and linked it with a small carabiner. I imagine you could pound your basic 4' t-post from Home Depot into the ground for this, even if you don't actually have a fence. Don't try wrapping it around any small trees that you actually want to keep - all the bark will be rubbed off by morning.Read more ›
Trap barrel is 4" X 1-3/4" dia; spike 4" long; welded chain w/swivel 11-3/4" long; the bare metal is coated with a plain oil applied from factory. Front & rear plates are spot welded in place while spring & trigger are attached by solid rolled end pins.
The trap is not freeze proof. Does require both hands to compress spring or on can use a Kwik Clamp. Put in bait prior to setting or you will break a finger. I put my trap spike into ground spring on top to allow clearance for spring action. There is a drain hole in bottom for light rain drainage. Properly degreased, dyed & waxed, the these traps should last for years. We have cats & dogs around our place & not one pet was harmed by the trap. This trap is NOT a catch & live release type trap. Animal must be dispatched by killing. There are various Trapping "How To" books on the market that describe the proper methods of cleanly dispatching the animal without the use of firearms. Be sure to check local Fish & Game for Laws governing traps & trap sets (marking, tagging, etc) plus animal carcass disposal. BTW, traps are made in Korea.
