Any of you guys ever use it? Going to trap an area for beavers this fall and there are a lot of coons there. Unfortunately there is a chance of deer dogs coming through the area and I do not want to catch anyone's hunting dog. Was thinking the leaning pole set, about 4 feet high would work. Any suggestions?

I agree with Hal. Leaning pole can work, but I believe dp's will increase your chances.

Thanks for the input guys. I will get some Duke dp's and give em a try. Was just going to use the 220's I already have, but I imagine you guys are right that the dp's will be better. Since I have never used them, is there going to be a problem with dogs turning them over, and ruining the set? That was my thinking with the 220's on a pole off the ground.

Yes, you might have some trouble with dogs knocking them over. And, if there are many dogs about, you may have trouble with them killing some of your coons. Even with that, you will most likely end up with more coons using DP traps than you would trying to get the coons to climb a pole and get into a 220. A "leaning pole" is more in the province of marten and fisher trapping than it is raccoon trapping.
