I would only use the victor leg holds, for fox an coyote I would dig down just enough to cover trap it was placed in a group of yuccas about the middle to prevent them from gettin the chicken I used behind the trap for bait. The worst was the damn skunks, or when u came up on a trap that had a huge circle dug around it an a pissed off badger dug into the yuccas. Oh the good ol days huh. But the conibear traps were good quality tho
