The pic above, sorry it's sideways, is of the same limb set. It's tripped. Coyote hair is on th ed end of the log and I could see the scratch Mark's in the dirt where he pulled out of the trap. I'm assuming I didnt bed the trap form enough and he was in the process of pulling back when he felt the trap move is how this happened.

How much pan tension are you running on your traps?

I started out pretty hot. I'd have a single or sometimes a double every morning and then it shut off. I moved traps outside of catch circles and it didnt really help, so I pulled everything since every trap had caught at least once and some twice. I re-dyed and waxed and reset. Having good success again. My new rule is two catches on a trap and it gets dyed and waxed again.
