I am new to trapping myself; however it has quickly turned into an addiction. I live in Milledgeville. I would be glad to let you look at some mb-550s and share what little I know.
Bass pro in Macon has recently begun selling some trapping supplies. They carry dukes, which I have no experience with. However, when I held the duke and the mb-550 side by side there was no comparison.
If your serious about trapping, I would recommend that you attend the coyote 101 class put on by familytraprz and barehunter. It will cut down on the learning curve significantly.
