Ive been using Duke DP traps for years and was wondering if anyone was using any other brands. Been looking at Freedom Brand FB1 and Bridger T3. Curious if yall are using any of these .

We use Coon Daggers and are pleased with the way they work. The trigger is activated by either a push or pull and can be set so that it doesn't take much to set them off.

We have Dukes, Z-traps, and had FB1s. I bought two FB1s because that was all the feed store had. After a while I couldn't make them trip by yanking on the lever, we no longer use them. I also do not like their flat piece of metal for a stake. They ones with a rod for stake are easier to push in our hard ground.
I modified the Zs a bit, they can be set wrong or bumped and the release will not work proper. The two way trigger idea is a selling a point, a coon is going to pull.
