going to make a few hundred so want to get this ríght from the start, ive seen a few versions and corflute seems the most common but is it durable enough or do possums ruin them in short order?  also wondering how they handle strong winds above the bushline? 90% will be Set in quad accessable area so weight dosent bother me too much just dont want to discover in a week or 2 its substandard and have to waste a day or 2 making better ones.

board/ backboard  are white boards with a stake to atract and catch monkeys where trees or posts are unavailabe to blaze or nail trap too.   think corflute is just used because its cheap and lightweight for carrying im just dubious as to whether they last long or stay put in the wind as alot of them will be high up

If you can attach them to the stake I’d say you should be ok

ply wood ones have a small flat stake bolted to them, corflute type have bend fence wire that fits up in the hollow inside and that what makerg me think they will constantly disapear.   thinking I mite just make 20 or so and use them a week or 2 to find out.

should just employ or let someone else trap it and itll be their problem  Grin
