When i watched the video, there is one thing that he could change that would give him a possible higher success rate. In the video he places in dog in front, If he were to place his dog to the back of the set it might do him some good.

now the reason why;
- when the dog is set in the front of the set like his is, it can create a dead spot on the pan and it also has a tendency of throwing the paw out of the trap if it is tripped and the paw in on the dog. just some constructive criticism. That and he has it blocked up a bit much with the leaves. other than that not a bad set, it's a proven set to catch critters.

Something that would probably help you the most is to get involved with your local trappers or hunting club. The first had experience is the best learning tool to have.
