Well, you're set for mink, muskrats, and coons. You COULD convince something bigger into a 160, but it'd be tough. I have caught and held beavers in a 160 (it was stone dead upon checking the line and we have a 36 hour check law here) and also in a #11 double jaw muskrat trap. Hard to believe I know, but I've had it happen. Both traps were set for rats, it just so happened that a beaver got their first and I was able to hold them.

If your laws allow, get some square buckets for bucket cubbie sets for coons.

I'd recommend getting some holders for the 110s. Sticks work but the holders are much easier to deal with and are quicker. Time = $.

Are you getting any foot hold traps?
