    It sounds like a steal to me, but want your opinions. I guess it doesnt matter whether it is or not, because I have a predator problem lol and have no choice.

    Sounds like a good deal to me, but I havent bought any live traps in years.

    Yes. I have priced them and that's usually what I would pay for one trap new.

    Those traps look like they are in great shape, the right size for possum, skunk, Coon. Yes a great deal, new ones go for over $ 40.00 ea, so jump on them and bait em up. Good luck.

    Depends on how big they are... but I'd say that's a good deal for two. I paid $90 for my one coon sized trap. However, I would do it all over again. The trap is STURDY and welded steel. Makes hav a hearts feel like paper! But they don't sell them around here anymore. [​IMG]
     
  8. I paid twice that for one NICE live trap for they ground hogs we had.
    They fit in there quite nicely.
