Capt. asked for a picture...
Here is the picture of the my trigger. Note that I have buried soure corn under the root stick.
Also, the following have been changed since my first post;
(1) The 2 set sticks have been moved to closer to each other
(2) The 2 set sticks have been changed from straight up to about 60 degrees away from the pull - hard to see from this picture.
(3) A metal wire has been added as an anchor to make the root stick harder to be rooted up.
Please let me know what can be done better. At the same time, I am looking at raccoon traps.
