I would never use anything bigger then a 120 conibear on the ground.Last I knew hunting dogs did not know how to read posted signs and sometimes get miles away onto posted land no matter how hard we try to not allow this to happen.We all need to share these woods and get along with each other meaning trappers and hound hunters or we will lose it all to the anti's.Even a rabbit dog can get away onto posted land sometimes and it would be a shame to see it get killed in a conibear on the ground.I'd go with the footholds on the ground.

I've yet to catch a dog, use common sense and it won't happen.

im a big 220 user and i have never got a dog. i only place my 220 coni. a half mile from any home site which could posb. hold a k9. of course useing good judgement is key ... useing 160 is a great idea if your worried about snagging dogs. for me it seems that to get the big boar bucketing is where i seem to pick them up over coilsprings which do produce coons but i have never seemed to reach the fully matrue coons like i have with my coni. sets. conibears are all about placement and grabbing the coons not the cats or k9. if your in a area which could posb. be dogs dont sets there are other ways to trick the bandts

mr. otter in my state there is protection for dogs in conibears ... coni my not be placed closer then 3 feet away from a culvert and i dont think they may be used on wild life mang. areas. the storys u hear about coni. killing dogs are from trappers who missuse the 220 and stake it in high risk spots. giving 220 trappers like me a bad name. if u could use them in your state i bet u argee with me.
