He was a good one for sure. I didnt have a chance to weigh him, but id guess 23-25 or so.

Nice! What size footholds do you use for them? I have a handful of 1-3/4s for coons, but I'm not sure they could handle a back foot catch like that.

I use MB 550s. They are very well built and will taking any beating from any yote. I have caught them in 1.75s, but now as I have gotten older and can afford to use the best I do. I only run a few traps anyway.
#2 Bridgers are also good yote traps.

Hope that helps.
