I think you should re think the use of 220s In trees 6' off the ground.I find It hard enough to get coons to commit to ground type cubbies let alone getting them to climb a tree to get In one.
There must be other options you can pursue.

I don't use cubbies or buckets anymore, but I bet it is fun to stabilze one in a tree. Is this a new law?

Dose this law apply to 220 Dukes, Bridgers, and other manufacturer's bodygrip traps, or just to 220 Conibears®?

Here is the Missouri state code:
(A)No Conibear-type trap with a jaw spread greater than 5 inches shall be set in any dry land set.
(B)Conibear-type traps with a jaw spread not greater than eight inches may be set six feet or more above ground level in buildings.

A 220 conibear is 7 by 7 so can any one help me with this?

A 220 would fall into category "B". I would look at using footholds if you are wanting to trap coons, or do they have to be above ground too? If you can't use at least a 160 bg on dryland, I wouldn't plan on trapping many coon with bodygrips. Whats the law state for bg over 8"?

The law actually does say Conibear-type!

the footholds can be set on the ground, and according to the wildlife code book conibears greater than 8inches are the same as category B.
