    Built this on Sunday, as our chickens have attracted a few visitors. Added handles later, so I can move it like a wheelbarrow.

    That looks really great! Good job! I love the wheel that you put on it! When my hubby made the Master Trapper for me, there were no wheels, and even today, I have to put the darn thing on a dolly cart to move it!

    Yours looks great!

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Very Nice!!!Having quite a bit of Wildlife ,Cat, & Dog rescue trapping of injured animals, may I suggest a few things to aid in trapping...move the hinged floor triggering assembly a few inches further towards the rear....any large animal would have a tail extending past the entrance, thus not allowing the door to close fully & would back out in a hurry.....add another simiar brace next to the middle support & mount the hinge point to it...Remember, all animals are just trying to eat, & can not discriminate food in sight...Would you kill every bird of prey, including eagles, owls, & hawks because it ate a songbird, or your favorite dove??...You went through the trouble to trap...Please relocate whatever you trap, don't just call it a nuisance predator & kill it.......thanks~~RR
